  • Night Time Achievements - PoDs (Prince[sses] of Darkness) 

    I want night-time achievements for fastest segments - XoMs but for sections that start an hour after sunset and complete an hour before sunrise... ie it's dark and it's harder.  Maths to calculate this is pretty easy with some basic assumptions.
    And a nice achievement symbol of a crown on a crescent moon. Thank you.

    It will allow more motivation through the winter months -- now it's late autumn in the Northern hemisphere and time on the bike is restricted. But is still fun in a different way. Times are always likely to be slower but competetive with everyone else in the dark.

    I appreciate some lights are now super bright but still cast shadows and even setting off needs more thought in the darker evenings and nights.

    Who else thinks this is a good idea and wants a PoD on their ride stats?

  • I’m echoing a little of what others said but I want to be more succinct.

    As a runner, when I have a new best effort, I’m always curious to see how it compared to other best efforts at the same distance. It would be awesome to be able to click on that record, “PR 10 Mile 1:13:36” or To click on the best effort under the profile statistics and see a list of Top 10 efforts for the specified distance, which can be tapped to open the activity it’s related to.

    This would be helpful because as Runners we are goal oriented and being able to compare present efforts to past efforts help us see the growth/performance gains. And by being able to go into the specific activities from the top 10 list we can see how our pacing/heart rate/cadence differences contributed in that effort.

    Just today I ran my best 10 mile effort ever in 1:13. I immediately wondered how that compared to previous best efforts at the same distance. I had to go in search all my activities based off of name, or distance and go through them one by one defined by second best and third best effort to understand how much better the effort was, I didn’t know if it was by 10 seconds or a two minutes.

    Turns out it was by 1:51. But I had to dig to find it. That’s a huge motivator knowing my changes in workout plans are working better.

  • I'd like to follow on what Crispin H posted above. I'd like to have night time segments vs day time segments. Down here in summer we ride night times as well, and it would be fun to be able to compete on segments at night and not against the day time riders who will almost always be faster due to better visibility. So a night version of the segment vs a daylight version. 

    Also I'd like the ability to see my gear (bike) I rode on segment leaderboards. We already log the bike we rode, so it would be nice to compare stats between eg an XC bike and a Trail bike/ebike, just based on the gear chosen.

  • Gavin Duxbury - I could see the interest in seeing what bike people rode for a segment, but I think you would most likely discover that a large majority of people do not actually indicate what bike they are riding in their files.  Most, from what I have seen, either do not enter any bikes or just don't bother to edit their file to say which one they are riding.  Also, there should not be any e-bikes listed in the regular bike leaderboards anyway since they are their own activity type, so you wouldn't be able to compare those anyway.

  • night time segments ? Sorry, but IMHO that's just a waste of electrons. From a practical point of view, first you will have to convince Garmin, Wahoo, and everybody else whose head units recognise Strava segments that they have to rewrite the software in their head units to ignore day segments at night, and vice versa. If you just use the Strava app on your phone, well Strava can do what they want with the data but how are they going to calculate day or night rides ? You really think their servers have the capacity to work out if it is dark or light when you ride ? What happens if you ride in to a state/province that has a different time zone ?

  • Strava already knows whether it was a morning, lunch, afternoon, evening and night ride by using your time of day in your location.... My garmin knows to switch to night mode on its display. So that tech is already in place. Secondly, no segment changes need be made. The split is done with data on this end, not on the metric recording units. That same indicator that lets Strava know that it was at night, would flag the segments as a night ride.

  • Mike Nottingham - I don't think they are asking for separate segments, just a separate leaderboard for the existing segments that is specific to the time of day, so one leaderboard for "daytime" and one for "nighttime".  This wouldn't require any changes to any device, just a function in Strava to identify the time a segment was accomplished which would classify it as a "daytime" or "nighttime" achievement.  But I agree with you, I think this is a waste.  I think it just follows along with the other request for additional ways to earn crowns of one sort or another.  It seems people want to just make it so everyone gets a crown, which ultimately just cheapens the ones people do get.  Your point about timezones is just one issue I see with this functionality.  Another would be how to determine a daytime or nighttime achievement for a long segment that spans across the timeframes.  Not all segments are 5 minutes long, some are hours long.  Personally, I like the idea that there is one KOM for a given segment (well, two if you count the QOM and KOM).  Some segments are actually faster in the dark (I know I can ride a lot of winter snowbike segments faster with a good headlight in the dark than I can in the daylight due to better contrast and visibility of the trail edges).  Some are better for certain bikes, or certain weather conditions, or certain times of day due to other users.  Going after a KOM is fun because it often means you have to factor in a number of aspects to get the best possible run.  I wouldn't want a separate KOM for one type of bike over another or a separate one for a rainy day compared to dry or a separate one for winter versus summer.  Just one for everything and the rider has to pick the most opportune conditions to make their attempt.

  • Thanks for the comments Gavin D. (who gets it) and Mike N. (who says "waste of electrons" in a lot of feedback)... the PoD idea is purely a different subset of fastest ... like "By Age" or "By Weight" -- it's just a holistic "By Night Time" generic.  XoM will always be the real-deal but there are viable alternatives.

    The Strava side is very simple maths (assuming a fairly round earth and some basic trig based on lat/long).  It's optionally up to the manufacturers via the Strava SDK to determine if they include it as a live in-segment thing (that I don't use, but appreciate others do). Just like not all Garmin's support starred segments for live in-segment chasing.  I hadn't even thought of that, but it's just like not all my segments come up at ride-time, only the uphill starred ones.

  • When a woman beats everyone (all women and all men's records) on a segment, KOM should be the achievement shown on the activity achievement summary, not QOM. Give credit where credit is due!!

  • as as a mountain biker, night time segments would be awesome -especially as here in the UK every journey to the woods after 5pm is with a head torch.

    working out when sun sets for a given (lat, long) point is a well-known piece of maths; for MTB trails it'd give you a top ten list to chase at night where your inevitably slower than daytime once the trail gets technical. 

    for people who haven't tried night-time MTB riding yet -have a go! In the northern hemisphere the time is right, and it makes short local trails exciting little adventures.

  • Is there way to edit which achievement is displayed on an activity when obtaining multiple achievements? 

    Example: I did a Gran Fondo  - I obtained the achievement, but on my activity it displays a local ledged achievement I also got instead. I would much rather have the Gran Fondo achievement display instead of the  Local legend on some worthless segment.

    It's really simple KOMs are for men and QOM's are for women. Strava is extremely even handed in it's approach. Either there should be no distinction at all, or we should keep the current system.

    Strava does not treat a KOM any differently to a QOM, they are equal. To suggest otherwise is frankly sexist. You seem to be suggesting that there is a hierarchy and that a QOM is somehow inferior to a KOM.

    Perhaps there could be an XOM or something but this would always be identical to either the KOM or QOM, so I'm not really sure I see the point. Getting a QOM is just as much "credit" as a KOM, be proud of that.

  • Crispin H.

    Night time achievements sound like a lot of bother.

    Light levels can't be calculated purely on time of day and frankly many segments are likely to be faster in the dark due to lack of traffic, etc.

    There are much more important things for Strava to address before this sort of thing is even considered.

  • @William O.  I disagree.  KOMs are usually faster than QOMs as men are physically stronger than women in a lot of circumstances.  That isn't sexist it's fact and nature haha.  Why do you think men aren't allowed to compete in women's sporting events?  It is unfair.  It is a great achievement for a woman to beat all men and having a KOM to display that would be sweet.

  • @William O: if you live in the northern hemisphere-now is the ideal time to enjoy MTB night rides. Try it if you can!

  • Carolyn Elliott - I really don't see why they should change anything.  It seems very simple.  KOM is defined as KING of the mountain, QOM is defined as QUEEN of the mountain.  They are simple gender notations, nothing more.  Nothing is saying KOM is better in any way than QOM.  Why would a female want to be listed as a King?  If you look at the leaderboard and a female has the fastest time, it lists the QOM at the top of the leaderboard where it belongs.  I would say that stands out more than if it were tagged with "KOM" and overlooked by most assuming it was a guy (because it says King of the Mountain, not because it is at the top of the list).

  • Hello. Add a TOP 10 tab somewhere so we can keep track of the trophies/top 10 we achieved. Actually, I am trying to keep track outside the app. Oh, and somewhere in the future add the possibility to highlight, on profile, the event/acitivities trophies we feel most satisfied/proud. (as Steam service does).

  • As we get older, our earlier PRs typically become unattainable. Because most of us are very competitive, this can be very discouraging even though intellectually we know we should slow down. It would be great to have trophies and records relative to others in our age group as well as overall (you could conceivably do same for weight). This will give us new goals to strive for.

  • It would be a cool enhancement to add a KOM/QOM page that lists the XOMs you previously had, but someone has since taken from you. That way, you have a nice clean source of segments you can work towards getting back.

    For example, if I had the KOM on 'Hill' then it was taken by John Doe, it'd move from my 'KOM' list to my 'stolen KOM' list. 

    Thanks!

  • Hi 🇧🇪Michael🌱 B. ! I've created a support ticket for you so that our team can help you directly. Thank you Ian Barton for helping out here as well! You're right, an option would be to delete your profile and create a new one.

  • 8k needs to be added as a PR distance. It's one of the most common collegiate level running distances, and is popular at road races as well.

  • Really like the "Your year in sport" stats summary, very well designed and satisfying to review! One improvement suggestion would be to state the elevation and distance in terrestrial terms to give them context, i.e. "You climbed a total of 18,000m, that's equivalent to climbing Everest twice" or "You ran a total of 1,500 km, that's like running from Sydney to Adelaide"

    If you want to implement this, maybe you can give me a free subscription as payment :)

  • Show all, not just 100 segments and KOMs in profile on the app. Just use pagination, like on the website. Why limit the app to only 100 segments and KOMs?!?

  • Put the list of the nearest 10 segments that you can select from back in Maps!!! It was there, then it was replaced by nonsense. Its nearly impossible to click certain segments on the map instead of having a list. And the list showed more segments than the map does! Please put it back how it was several versions ago. This was an extremely useful feature!

  • Just a thought about rides vs virtual rides.  It would be nice to see in "mystats", and other places, a different icon and colors listing virtual ride miles/output info etc next to the regular bicycle icon that is already given.  I know you can see some of what I am talking about when you look at the training log, but would love to see directly in all other outputs.  Example in a bar graph different colors showing distances ridden or run etc.  Again, just a suggestion - Love Strava Thanks

  • Hi out there.

    How do I delete a KOM?

    I had a crash this spring, and after that my bike was transportet in a car with the computer still on, therefore I now have 5 KOM's and want to be fair and delete those KOM's.

    Thanks..

  • Thomas Larsen - the simplest thing would be to crop the activity to remove the part that was in a vehicle

  • Thomas Larsen - All you have to do is open the activity and use the "crop" feature.  In the app, if you click on the activity, then click on the three dots in the top right of the screen, then select "crop activity".  Follow instructions in there to cut out the portion in the vehicle and all is good.
