At Specialized, we’re firmly convinced that the future of short journeys will increasingly take place by bikes, and not by cars.

The energy used in Selva di Val Gardena is sourced from certified, 100% green renewable energy sources, the result of South Tyrolean hydroelectric plants.

At the BMW HERO Südtirol Dolomites we’re committed to the environment. And so are our partners. Each of them has wanted to actively support the HERO TO ZERO sustainability programme.

These actions range from monitoring emissions, recycling, using natural materials (which in turn creates less pollutants).
