Smart Routes for Smart Bikes

Find exciting new routes in your very own city, experience unique trails in the mountains or get to know your entire region from a whole new perspective. Komoot, the most popular outdoor route-planning app in Europe, enables you to discover new routes every day. As of right now, all Komoot users can transfer their own bike routes – along with those of the greater biking community – directly to their COBI app.

All those who simply want to plunge into the unknown, or to discover secret new trails of their own, are welcome to use the countless routes that serve the Komoot community.

It doesn’t matter whether we’re talking panoramic mountain passes, challenging day trips, or exciting city tours – bike expeditions always have a particular character of their own. Because you can completely absorb the nature that surrounds you no matter whether you’re riding down a rough track, through scenic mountain passes, or along forest trails. Regardless of whether you’re riding a road- or mountain bike, the Komoot website uses super-precise routing algorithms to create perfectly tailored routes. The algorithm factors in duration, prevailing conditions and topography of the route and you’re good to go... What can spoil the fun, however, is a bad Internet connection. If you completely lose net access you are potentially lost as a needle in the proverbial haystack. Komoot offers you a brilliant solution: offline navigation.

Routes can be selected or created at home and downloaded to your smartphone. They can then be activated later, at any time and in any situation that the need arises. This means, no matter how deep a hole you get yourself into, you can safely get out of any wilderness via GPS. And to be frank, who doesn’t want to enjoy time offline while biking in nature? All those who simply want to plunge into the unknown, or to discover secret new trails of their own, are welcome to use the countless routes that serve the Komoot community. These are well documented and include photographs so, for example, you can quickly and easily find that picturesque little beer garden everyone is always talking about.

The integration of Komoot bike tours into the navigation system of the COBI App not only gives cyclists access to all the routes of the entire Komoot community, but also the feeling of absolute freedom when biking. With hands always secure on the handlebars, spontaneous route settings can be made via the thumb controller, and you can easily switch between different functions of the COBI app. Shortly before starting down your next beautiful trail, you can select the appropriate song with a single click and experience the landscape even more intensely. And since the COBI Hub not only ensures the perfect position of the smartphone, but also charges it, bike trips can be made a to last a little longer too. That’s smart biking.
