Show Segment's elevation gain on Segment details page

Currently in the segment page the elevation difference is shown, which is simply "max elevation" - "min elevation".

I don't think this information is really useful, what would be really useful would be the elevation for the whole segment like what is shown for each activity.

Can you please either replace or add this value to the segment page ?

Thanks.

  • I just created this segment last week:  http://www.strava.com/segments/7630467

    Although the elevation difference is 185 feet, the actual elevation climbed on this road is 403 feet, which one can find out in the Route Builder... or, if you ride it and realize that it is far more than 185 feet!

    Here's another:  http://www.strava.com/segments/5252128

    The actual elevation climbed on that road is 585 feet, compared with the elevation difference of 340 feet.

  • I have the same concern as Hugo. I'd really like to be able to see total elevation GAIN per segment (not just the max elevation minus the min elevation, which is not useful).

  • I know a number of segments that are quite hilly but show up as having 0% or 1% average grade. Loop segments would always be 0% average grade which isn't useful at all.

    I think in general for running the average grade and the difference in elevation isn't that relevant. Please switch to cumulative elevation gain and cumulative descent.

  • I just noticed this and thought it was a new issue.  I have an activity with 8000 feet of gain, but the matching segment of the whole activity is 3000 feet.

  • Does anyone know if there is a solution for this issue?

  • You can use the Strava segments site which actually reports the total gain from Strava as well as computes its own estimate:

    The starting page is http://www.doogal.co.uk/strava.php

  • Just noticed this as well and would be more interested in gain than difference.

  • warning: Not elegant but it works:

    1) get the Chrome extension "Strava, export gpx track" - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/strava-export-gpx-track/kdemfmhkoncmbcphejembfngiihppkei?hl=en

    2) you can now download Strava segments as GPX files

    3) upload the GPX file of the segment as a new activity

    4) now you can see the total elevation gain of the segment

    5) delete that "activity" when you're done or you will start replicating your rides and cluttering up your account

    I came to this thread hoping to find something better than this... but looks like this is the only way, as of June 2018, do get the info using the Strava site.

    There are probably better sites out there to do step 3) upload a GPX file and quickly see the data. That would be nice as it would eliminate step 5 of having to delete an uploaded activity

  • I just created a short 2km private segment that i rode with some insane 30% climbs.. only to realize Strava only shows the difference (61m) , but not the altitude climbed..so i calculated the altitude climbed using the altitude chart that shows underneath the map, when you create the segment.. i had to add and substract every little peak and valley to come up with a climbing total of 143 meters.

    the altitude difference number that shows in the segments is completely useless.. the effort is done on the climbs, not on descents..  this is pure programming laziness

    i can't believe that in 4 years, nobody in Strava has gotten around to fixing this.,, and they want people to subscribe????

  • I found a slightly more streamlined solution.

    Once you export a segment using the previously mentioned Chrome extension (Strava, export gpx track), you can upload that file to https://www.trackreport.net/ and it spits out all the pertinent data we're looking for. I just used it to plan out an epic.

    Still, this seems like a pretty easy calculation for Strava to accomplish, especially for a paid premium service. Get on it!

  • Agreed. It would be very helpful if Strava showed the cumulative elevation gain on a segment.

    My current solution is to use ridewithgps, ride the segment and then find the segment. If you drag across, the cumulative height gain is shown. Cumbersome and Mickey Mouse but works.

    Yes Strava, it can be done and I would value as a Premium member.

    So far this year I have lost functionality as a Premium member. I was able to record heart rate a year ago. Now I record on a Wahoo and import. Calories used are calcualted diffently on the iphine strava and Wahoo. I am now unable to comapre like with like.

  • Strava? Anything? Folks have been asking for this since 2014 and still nothing? Give us the ability to see total ascent for analysis selections and segments.
