You can select the e-bike option while planning with any cycling sports type on komoot. When you plan a route on our route planner and select one of those sports types, a small checkbox will appear under the sports icons called “E-Bike.” You can confirm that this selection has been made by the small lightning symbol next to the icon. Keep an eye out for this lightning symbol to identify other users’ e-bike Tours.
Selecting the e-bike option will optimize the average speed that’s calculated for the route, as well as the difficulty of the route. It will not change the routing itself. For example, if you’re planning a mountain biking route, the suggestion by the planner will be the same whether your sports type is E-MTB or just MTB but the speed and difficulty will be adjusted accordingly.
