We’ve improved our routing to avoid segments that are too steep and rough for most gravel, road and touring bikes

We’ve updated our road, gravel and touring cycling routing to avoid overly steep climbs that are unsuitable for most bikes. Now, when going uphill on all but a mountain bike, komoot will no longer shortcut your climb over less suitable surfaces. In the past, for example, komoot may have opted for a steep hiking trail to shortcut a series of hairpin bends. Now, thanks to this update, you’ll stick to the most suitable version of the climb possible — so you can better enjoy the suffer-fest. Fan of climbs? Don’t worry, this does not mean that you’ll get fewer climbs on your route! You’ll still be routed up as many hills as before — we’ll just make sure your climbs are rideable on your bike type before we add them to your route.
