Feedback for Strava App v4.4: Bring back the Speed on Segment Leaderboards

Speeds have been removed from leaderboards in an recent update of the Android aps. Leaderboards now only display the time of the efforts on segments, not the speeds. From other forum posts, I understand the same is true for the iOS app.

I would find speeds to be much more useful than time of the effort, as it makes it much easier to compare how you're doing (and others are doing) in different segments. I guess the removal of speeds was an intended change and not a bug, but I cannot see why this was done. Bringing back the speeds in the leaderboards in one of the next version updates would be most appreciated.

  • I would like the mph back on segments. We want more data not less.

  • Yes, MPH on leaderboards is extremely helpful when deciding on which segments I might have a chance of placing on.  Based on top speed for that segment and average grade I can make a pretty good guess at where I might land.  This is very useful when planning or modifying routes on the fly or from my phone.  Especially when searching segments from the app.  Without top speed on leaderboards searching segments from the app is almost useless to me.  Thanks so much for considering this request.

  • Fully endorse what is being said here. Rank doesn't really tell you as much as average mph in terms of achievement compared to others. If I was racing Mr Bolt over 100m, in a field of ten runners, and I finished third, I would think I was not too far off the leader. However, if my time was 25 seconds I would know I was some way off! Time, or over segments average time, is much more informative than rank.

  • Yes! Please bring back Avg speed on leaderboards.. Overall time doesn't mean much at all..

  • Agreed, in addition to bringing back the old leaderboard filters, the speed (rather than time) needs to be displayed...at least for cycling (perhaps runners prefer time?).

  • Yeah definitely need speed for cyclists. I have a good sense of how fast I ride, so seeing a speed tells me if I've done a segment close to my ability, or if there's room for improvement. Comparing time differences in seconds is useful too, but only if I know how close to my peak ability I was riding.

  • TOTALLY agree - I use Strava for running and the leaderboard on iOS now only shows time whereas it used to show speed too.
    Having speed on there let me easily see how much effort I need to put in / if a segment can be beaten, but also makes it much more obvious when times are "not legitimate" (e.g. crazy speeds which must have been on a bike or in a car etc).

    Not showing this information anymore (when it used to be present and there is plenty of screen real-estate to fit it in) is a really "backwards" move in my opinion - please can you add it back (thanks!)
    I also prefer the old leaderboard filter option than having to navigate another menu to actually see the "All-Time" Leaderboard (which is the only one I'm bothered about).

  • Yes. Please bring back average speed listing to segment leaderboards on iOS (and Android) apps. Highly useful information; I can so no reason why this information was taken away with the update. Makes absolutely no sense, especially as there is still space to list this adjacent to time of segment. Please bring it back with next update.

  • Time and speed please, like the old version. It's almost like the app is trying to cater to older riders with poor eyesight but I'd personally rather have a smaller font size used and list both metrics.

     

    As a general comment, there's a lot of other little changes that were made with this update that seemed to remove functionality/ability to easily analyze ride and segment data. I've noticed this long-standing pattern with Strava that when the web site or the apps are updated they bring a couple small changes that fall into the "nice to have additions but not really needed" category while changing or moving around interface features, completely redesigned others that worked perfectly well, or worst of all, completing remove a certain functionality/analysis tool.

    It would really be nice to see development time spent on bug fixes, adding features, analysis tools and new ways to interpret activity data rather than spending time mashing up the user interface in failed attempts to make it "easier" or "prettier" at the cost of removing or degrading functionality that was working perfectly in the old version.

  • Ditto. If I'm after a segment position I want a target speed.  Time is useless since my performance won't be known until the end (or later).

  • To add a quick comment, I was able to contact support and get the older version of the .apk file to side-load on my Android phone. Having used the new version for quite a few months and cursing many of the changes, upon switching back to the older version I haven't found myself wanting any "features" or changes from the v4.4 app.

  • Strava, you're not hiding anything. I click on the KOM leader, get his ride, and finally the segment stats and speed show up, aggravating.
