SWITZERLAND, JUST A NATION OF

SKIERS AND HIKERS?

Far from it: Cycling is the most popular sport in Switzerland.

Even the smallest towns offer soccer fields but no public cycling infrastucture for recreational sport to meet, learn save riding and have fun. This vaccum led to the development of the public pumptrack by Pete Stutz & Fabian Vollrath.

Internationally our products are considered to be safe by the German TÜV as well as LuxControl of Luxemburg.

Our stabilized pumptrack ridingsurface material combined with a professional project management, grants planning dependability.

WHERE DO YOU RIDE?

The pumptracks gmbh builds pumptracks where they are actually used – in your neighborhood. Short distances leave more time for riding and communication.

Noicefree riding and generation overlapping usage grants high social control and is a key for worryless operating.
