  • Would be nice to have some acknowledgement from Strava... Not a word so far! Come on guys you could really get a community on board with some extra coding! You already have the app up and running so adding extra categories surely can't be that hard??? Strava.... Helloooooo

  • Makes no sense to me since the classic and skate trails are separated where I live. Segment search, CRs etc would be great tho.

  • It''s very, very common to have combined skate/classic track on a shared trail.  Many races also use the exact same course for classic and skate/freestyle as well. So you need to be able to distinguish between the two.

  • This isn't an either/or issue for Nordic and Classic.  We need to be able to identify how we are traversing a segment.  I have runs where I can ski DOWN, snowboard DOWN, cross country ski DOWN, or mountain bike DOWN, but the more troubling numbers are when I take the ski lift UP that same run and Strava tells me I got a QOM for bike riding UP that run in the middle of January.  How can a mountain biker compete with my times as I ride up the chair lift?

  • Yes, Please put more categories for xc ski, skate and classic. More importantly, please add hr zones, suffer score and points in the red for xc ski and other sports too - seem like it would be easy to do. yes, i'm a premium member and would like to see more premium features for other sports. thanks, and keep up the good work!

  • HR zones, suffer score and points in the red are already there if you look at your activities through the app. And you can see them before changing the activity from biking to skiing. So yeah - I don't see any good reasons for "hiding" them any more.

     

    I would like to see my average speeds in km/h instead of min/km. That's how it's done for biking and backcountry skiing, but for some reason XC skiing is shown with min/km. Weird. Only long distance runners use min/km :)

  • Yes to more categories for xc ski, skate and classic. There is the same issue with Biking, Road and mountain biking. Segments should also supports those sports since they support the category. In other words all the features for running or biking must be supported. The sport selection should be done prior to the activity start.

    For running and biking the app has good features, please extend them to others sports.

  • I miss PRs and KOMs/CRs list for nordic skiing aswell as being able to search for nordic ski segments (skating and classic).  I would definately upgrade to the paid service if this is implemented.

  • Bummer on the total lack of response from Strava on this. I love the motivation I get from this service during cycling season and it would be amazing to get similar motivation during ski season--especially since many of the features being requested have been turned on for skiing in the past!

    In the absence of a response, even just to say "never gonna happen," I'll ask for recommendations. Is there another service nordic skiiers have used to share/compete/etc. that has a more complete featureset?

  • i agree...we should have a nordic skiing tab.  not much biking going on up here in tahoe in the winter...gotta drive down to reno or auburn/folsom.  i think a nordic tab would allow many of us to train harder and stay motivated in the cold dark winter months.  lets make it happen!

  • As mentioned by many above - why are HR zones hidden when not selecting bike/run? There is so many of us doing other sports than those two that need the HR zones information. Also agree that skate and classic must be separated!

  • I just sent STRAVA a request to separate Nordic into two separate categories.  My expectations however, are low.  I'm a classic x-country skier and I can't compete with the times posted by the skate skiers.  The difference between the two is comparable to riding a knobby'd tire mountain bike in a road bike race.  It's not even close!  Please, STRAVA, separate the category!

  • Maybe the first thing they could program is a way to ignore the straight uphill portions of an activity.  When I ride the chair lift up I get a great workout.

    Maybe they could give us special instructions on how to record downhill skiing.  Should I start my timer at the top and stop it at the bottom of each run?

  • Yes, please Strava.  I would be willing to upgrade for this option.  I would like Skate & Classic and a similar system to track KOM and segments.

  • While I'm ok with separating the nordic disciplines, you will inevitably have people on skate skis infiltrate a classic KOM list just because they can. I'm much more interested in having nordic segment searches just like cycling and similar detailed heart rate analysis. Stop hiding it Strava.

  • On Garmin connecter site they are both available. So you get your stats and details for each.

    It would be great to ear from Strava what they think about this and the possibility.

  • yes, classic and skate skiing are essentially two different sports. Also, would be nice to record equipment.

  • This would be a great feature. Especially since classic and skate skiing are performed in the same tracks, as opposed to road bike vs mtb where you typically don't ride the road bike in the forests.

  • Hi there. You really do a great Job, i enjoy to analyse my Trainings with strava. But i don't only do cycling and running. I am more a crosscountry skier and i do many workouts on the rollerski. In faxt, i miss the totalization of my km on the rollerski and on the crosscountry skis. I really apriciated of it would be possible to choose any sport like running and cycling in the profil - especially for me: rollerski skating, rollerski Classic, crosscountry Classic, crosscountry skating. Would that be possible?
