To give you even more info at a glance when looking at the map (as well as making planning easier all round), we’ve implemented two design updates we’re excited to share:
- Know the difficulty of tracks suitable for gravel cycling:
We’ve updated how we display trails and tracks that are suitable for gravel bikes on the map, so you can determine whether a route is rough or smooth at a glance. Wider trails that are a lighter shade of beige now represent smoother gravel roads that many bikes can comfortably glide along. If the trail has a dashed border and is a darker (almost brown) shade of beige, you should expect a rougher route that may be a mix of loose dirt and trickier gravel.
- More easily find mountains and hills on the map:
To make it easier to find hills and mountains when you’re planning, we’ve increased the visibility of these on the map. We’ve also added extra elevation labels to each listing, so you can more easily see how high these peaks are (in meters) and decide whether or not you want to brave climbing them.
These changes are visible now in the komoot apps or at komoot.com/plan.
