Age Group KoM's, Qom's & Podium Trophies

Please add age group KoM's, Qom's & podium trophies (of a new colour amended shape and still show the outright Kom/Qom top ten result trophies), to the segment summaries. These would generate far more interest to a lot of us, especially those who have yet to reach, or as in my case are well beyond their peak performance years. 

Clearly this fits well within Strava's ethos and would benefit all Stravaites, as it would encourage and motivate both young and old alike to cycle and, if not a member, to join Strava.  I suggest, therefore, that this additional feature ought be open to all. 

If, however, "the powers that be" consider it more appropriate, this additional could be restricted to premium members, but as mentioned it would .

  • Ditto on this. For anyone over , say 45 or so, KOM or QOM is unlikely but it would be nice to see trophies for Age Group ranks.   See attached, I would think you could add one more line in the results area for a segment which shows rank within age group.

  • I want to add my support for this. It would be very motivating for people in the 55+, 65+ category to get KOM/QOM's and would broaden Strava' s appeal even further. And add some real competition. Give it a different name  (XXQOM/XXKOM) and treat it the same way as the Overall and annual KOM/QOM's.

  • Age Group KOM / QOM for Premium members.  Perhaps just label it:  AGKOM / AGQOM ... not necessary to specify the Age Group the person achieved the KOM / QOM.

  • I am surprised as a new premium member that recognition isn't given for age groups as I would bet that vast majority of subscribers are over 45..

  • Plenty of requests for this minor upgrade over a long period of time. Is anything going to happen please?

  • +1 - for anyone over 35 this would be nice - chances of a KOM or QOM non existent otherwise!

  • Agree - add age group KOM and / or trophy case listing to your page

  • I add my support for this. At my age, rising 68, there is little hope that I could achieve an all comers KOM. It would be great acknowledgment for all age group cohorts and entirely consistent with the ethos and ideals of STRAVA.

  • This is a long requested feature.  I requested it at least three years ago when I realized I was old.  I don't see why it hasn't been added, doesn't sound like a difficult programming challenge to me.

  • I totally agree with the proposal: There could be for example a big KOM icon for overall leader and small KOM icons with different colors for each age category leader

  • More support here!

    How about an all purpose KOM/QOM crown in say blue, with the same blue colour for all age group KOM/QOMs? 

    Half a dozen different coloured crowns would be somewhat confusing and aside from making the outright gold KOM/QOM distinct, I can't see much reason to discriminate between the different levels of age group KOM/QOMs.

    Maybe, instead of having 1 to 10 crowns there could just be 1 to 3 or even just the top 1 KOM/QOM only?

    What is Strava thinking about this one?

  • I think adding trophies to the list of trophies make great sense :), particularly for us over 50 guys who will be hard pressed to see a KOM and also given that many KOM's are done on motorized bikes, in cars, or motor paced.   It would make it more interesting which is both good for Strava and good for the atheletes.

    Let's do it Strava!

  • WouLd be good to have a list of age group KOM's QOM's on your profile page same as normal KOM's. Huge selling point for Premium to us older athletes : )

  • Yes,surely the whole point of Strava is to give participants incentive. While Strava is very active in thinking up creative new ideas in all sorts of ways, the age group KOM/QOMs don't seem to be catching their attention ... yet.

    Up until a few years ago I could manage the odd KOM but now, with the increased number of Strava-ees along with the huge number of attempts at any stage, it's hard to achieve anything beyond a PR. Many fantastic efforts by older riders are not being rewarded as they could be.

  • I wouldn't care if the only place you could see these Age Group KOM's was on your profile. Any premium athlete that's interested will see who they are chasing when they look up the age group section of the segment.

    I also think it should be done in 5 year blocks not 10 same as normal masters racing. It was great for me to recently turn 65 and I dont want to have to wait 10 years to start again : ) 

    Twice as many Age Group KOM's Qoms - Twice as many happy customers

  • I had always assumed that this was part of Premium. Was planning to upgrade as a from of motivation when I stopped getting any more standard CRs. Without it there's no point in upgrading for me.

  • I'd like to add my support to this request for Age Group KOMs to show up, and to be able to list the Age Group KOMs in much the same way as KOMs. This 58 year old can't realistically compete with 35 year olds.
