  • Under "Segments", add "Top 10" segment finishes in addition to the already existing "KOMs/CRs" tab

     

    While it's great that there is a tab to quickly see segments where one achieved a KOM or CR, for the majority of people, this is very difficult to obtain. A Top 10 finish however, is more likely and still motivating - plus, Strava offers a trophy icon when a Top 10 finish is achieved, so why is this not easily showcased?


    This would allow users to quickly identify segments where they finished in the Top 10 all-time, and is a nice ego boost while also serving as motivation to ultimately get that KOM. Motivation will result in people getting after that leaderboard more heavily which requires getting out the door; good for fitness and good for your business.

    This functionality should not be difficult to add. You could create a separate "top 10" tab - which would be preferred - or simply add to the existing "KOMs/CRs" tab.

  • i find it frustrating when i get a PB on a 5k, 10k, half etc. that there is no way of seeing what your previous PR is. Think it would be a a good addition if you have personal a leaderboard for your PB's, even if it is only a top 3. 

    Also a yesterday tab on the segment page would be great look back at a full days attempts instead of having to stay up until midnight to see where you finished.

  • No top 10 history overall.

    For instance 

    5 x top 3

    1 x top 2

    7 x top 8

    1 x top 10

    Only Koms & CR in the overview

    Can Strava add the Top 2 to 10 🏆?

  • Show PRs in Mobile App

    I want to be able to see my PRs in the mobile app. This will allow me to see all of my Run/Bike/Swim PRs without having to go onto my computer and view the Strava desktop website. I use the mobile app 90% of the time when viewing Strava data, so this would save me (and many others) time by displaying PRs in the mobile app. Other apps such as Garmin Connect and Runkeeper show PRs in their mobile app. The data is readily available by Strava; I cannot think of a good reason that this simple feature request would not be implemented. In fact, this has been a feature request for many years. The old request was deleted when Strava rolled out this new Community Forum (old link: https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/213289627-Show-my-Run-PRs-in-the-mobile-app).

    In the mobile app, clicking on the Profile tab in the bottom menu bar (on iOS app) brings me to my profile. Scrolling to the bottom of my profile, there is a list element called "Statistics" (Activities, Statistics, Gear, etc). Clicking on Statistics shows me my stats for the year (similar to how the desktop website shows stats in my profile). I think that PRs could easily be added either to this Statistics list element, or in its own list element page.

    Strava desktop website -> My Profile -> "My Stats" side bar:

     

    Strava mobile app (iOS) -> Profile -> suggestion where PRs could be added:

  • Tracking performance over time is something we all do.  Strava has the data because it tells me I'm trending faster/slower on a route and shows a plot of my times on that route.

    Why oh why is this not available for personal bests at standard distances (for runners... mile, 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon, etc)?  I understand I can manually enter my PB for an official race and have it published to my profile, but really wish I could see how I am trending over time across standard distances based on GPS activities and entered PBs.

    There was a thread about PR history on the old support forum with a lot of comments and upvotes.  I hope the reorganization doesn't push this feature to the back of the line.

  • Under the “My Stats” on our profile the only options shown are for running, swimming and cycling. Not everybody is a triathlete!

    Could you change the activity tabs shown on our profiles to be selectable in our preferences ?  I cycle and walk and would love to see my walking statistics shown instead of all zeroes on the swim and run tabs ! 

    And  what about all the disabled athletes ? I am sure they would like an option of having wheelchair activities shown ? I am sure you guys at Strava are PC enough not to discriminate against them 😀

  • Please create a separate category for eBikes as QOMs and KOMs are falling like mad to eBikes.  Here is an example of a casual rider who has suddenly taken numerous QOMs.  https://www.strava.com/activities/4325235564   Suggestion:  Require all registered bikes to select eBike / non-eBike.   This way ordinary cyclists can still achieve records overall and by age and gender.   Thanks!

  • This new screen is terrible.




    I used to be able to quickly open a segment on a ride and see my overall standings with this little graphics that was directly on the segment page:
    I was also quickly able to see how well I performed compared to others and if it is actually a segment that is popular or not with my position (ex. 110/5064). 

    But now I have to click on Fastest Time tile, scroll to the bottom to see the number of people on that segment, for each segment I want to analyze...

    It's important for me because if I rank 18 on a segment and the little graphic is at the top quarter, it could be I'm 18 out of 300 or 18 out of 10000, and that's a big difference. So I have to scroll to the bottom every time to see the number of people on the segment.

    Also, for 99% of segments the fastest time is not relevant to me because it is held by a pro rider.

    Plus just having the time of the KOM there is not great because I don't have anything to compare it to. Ok 5:54, but is that fast? I have to scroll back up to check my time on the segment, but by the time I'm back up I forgot the KOM time (was it 5:54 or 6:54)? And then I have to do some mental math to know if I'm far or not. (Ok I went 8:19, KOM is at 5:56, means I'm.... hmm... 3 minutes... no, 2 minutes 23s behind)

    Plus you waste so much space with the description of what KOM is. I already know what KOM is, show me some relevant information instead of a waste of space.

    I used to normally mostly use the browser to analyze my ride, but sometimes I wanted to quickly check my ride directly after a ride say in the car or at the pub, but this update makes my quick check much slower, so I'll just skip it and only use the browser version.

  • I came here just to comment on how terrible the new mobile version segment screen is, as Maxime Peloquin states above.  It places a huge hurdle to what I think is the most social aspect of Strava.  

    Previously you could click a segment and see rankings of where you stood all time, for that day, year, within clubs, etc.  It was all in one place once you clicked a segment.  It is very common for people to see they are #2 or whatever for a day, and then look into and then follow whoever was #1.  People meet new riders of similar ability in their area that way.  Knowing your ranking drives competition to do better on segments.

    With the new screen, that information is several clicks away, meaning nobody will ever go to it.  You now have to purposefully seek out your rankings on a segment.  Isn't that what Strava was built on?  It's so cumbersome to see where we placed, who else rode it, how close you are to KOM or top 10 that the segments are hardly worth looking at in this format.

    Bring back the old segment interface!

  • I would like to be able to see "heat map" for hiking/walking exercises, as at this is a main sport for me and I don't see platforms properly supporting it in consolidated way.

    I understand that Strava whants to specialize on biking and running but there is an opportunity to offer more about hiking. When hiking in the mountains at >500m ascend per hour, it is definitely intesnse exercise and it deserves to have a sport platform. I am under the impression that Strava would be in position to support it quite easily based on the features already implemented for running: it is mostly a matter of applying the same routines on a different subset of data.

    Hello Strava
    I have been on Strava since 2013 and always had the ambition and motivation to drive segments on KOM, which I managed very often and I am still represented in the best lists today. Only as a 48-year-old racing cyclist does it become more and more difficult to attack KOM and bring back lost KOMs. My suggestion would be to enable the older generations to have an age COM list using perhaps other colors or separate lists. That would certainly stimulate the older generation to train and bring back the lost age COM. In this way, men / women outside the young elite would be able to drive fast in their age group! Please consider this suggestion. That would surely please the older ones worldwide!
    Thank you greetings Andreas Miller

  • I think it would be a great feature to show an athlete's Top 10's alongside their KOMs & CRs on the profile page, this would allow users to quickly compare their segment efforts to different athletes beyond just the KOM & CRs or the segment pages, and also allows a user to keep track of their own efforts beyond just KOM's and CR's. 

    Here is a screenshot to give an idea, either with Top 10 added as a table in the KOM / CR page or as a separate tab.

  • "Today" in Top 10

    I would like to have the "Today" choice in the Top 10 to compare the efforts of a day without changing to the segment's site.

  • LEADERBOARDS SEGREGATED/FILTERED FOR INDIVIDUAL or GROUP EFFORTS

    Users have long begged for this possibility.
    As everyone knows, leaderboards are one of the most differential features of Strava and also certainly the most motivating possibility it offers.

    It is really frustrating that a solo rider has no choice when appearing on the same leaderboard as riders who qualify riding in a group with the benefit of the relay draft.
    Of course the problem is even greater when the group cyclists are professional pelotons in a race.

    Strava has the ability to detect group activities and can implement this segmentation on leaderboards.
    Furthermore, users could flag activities that may have been done in a group and the system would not have detected them as that.

    This is VERY important to find motivation riding alone, specially in this moment with the COVID-19 situation around the world.
    Proper leaderboards sure will make people want to pay per subscription.

  • A tie for a KOM does not appear in the list of KOMs on the user profile; it does appear when viewing the segment. Here is an example:

  • YeaH!, you did it!.  puting the daily numbers on the main page of the mobile app is a big correction, vs multiple screens deep.  thank you.

     

    A top reason I use Strava is to see who was out today and how they did.   The recent change to the mobile UI where its now several clicks to see, for each segment, "Today's results" is a complete pain in the butt.  Takes the fun out of checking in on friends, if its not fun, I stop doing it, If I stop doing it I stop subscribing to Strava.

  • I would like to see the total number of KOMs (QOMs or CRs) each person has, so not by counting it myself, but through a number in the right top corner under > Segments > KOMs/CRs. It will allow me to see the total # of KOMs at a glance.

    The reason that is important: by this, the App will be more attractive and the competitive part will only be greater!

  • Steph Durocher - That is by design.  Strava only really recognizes one KOM for any segment, and that goes to the first person to achieve a particular time.  Anyone after that who matches the time will get it shown on the activity itself, but they do not officially have the KOM (since they didn't beat the previous KOM, only tied them) so it will not show up in their trophy case.  It is set up so you actually have to beat the previous best time to take the KOM, not just match it.

  • Most of the features that are available for/to runners should also be available for walkers. I see absolutely no reason to have less features and functionality for walkers than for runners. Why isn't a lot of features that are available to runners available for walkers?

    I don't run, but I walk a lot, and I'm just as interested in (estimated) best efforts, PRs and more. And please add a "Walking" tab to the My Stats on my profile page.

  • I recently had to give up running for medical reasons. It's disheartening to have only running, cycling and swimming available for "My Data". I walk every day, but when I look at my Profile, my stats show that I've moved 0.00km this week.

    I would love to have additional options added to the stats options on the profile page - namely, walking.

  • Yearly Best efforts

    It would be great if STRAVA could add a tab for the yearly best efforts.  The best effort currently shown for many people is based on an activity years ago which is something that they might not be able to achieve anymore (due to circumstances that change).  It would thus be nice if you could see your best effort for the current year.  This will help keep people motivated.

    Currently under the statstics page the Stats for previous years can be viewed (total hours, distance, elevation & runs).  If the best efforts for the year could be added in this section that would be great

  • Hi,

    The new segment detail page is, in my view, not an improvement.

    First of all the "today" top list is missing or I'm not abel to find it on the mobile app. Since I'm commuting a lot, I do know who else is riding the same streets as I do everyday. And to beat those other communters or to be beaten by them is highly addictive. Honestly this informations keeps me motivated to push a little more which is great.  But now I have an extra button to push to not find this information and I can't even tell what's the benefit of this. Also the top 10 list for me is the intresting information and seeing where I stand (over-all, this year and today).

    Please revert this unnecessary change to the old segment information setup.

    If you want to change something ...

    Please add a history to the 10 km run/100 km ride (etc.) page! I would like to see if my speed of the 10km run improved or not and how it changed over the course of time.

  • Why do Clubs only count Total time for swim, ride and run?

    Red Bull X-Alps has created a Club on Strava, and some of the best athletes in the world aren't listed in the top-10 because they use "Hike" as their primary activity designation. In winter many of them will also do lots of Cross Country Skiing etc.

    You have columns for Swim, Ride and Run, why don't you use all activities for the Total tally? Or, alternatively, allow Club administrators to select activities, which are important for the Club. Swim, for example, is definitely not useful in the Red Bull X-Alps Club.

    Thank you!

    Hope this is the right place for this post.

    I don't think it is right that average speeds achieved during Virtual Rides (e.g. Zwift) are included in the weekly leadership tables for a Strava club. There should be one table for Road Cycling rides and one for Virtual Rides.

  • I have a on a few occasions found segment results that are clearly wrong, e.g. when someone that does a 50K ride at an average speed of 25kph suddenly does more than 50kph on a flat segment towards the end of their registered ride. A quick check typically shows that they probably finished their ride, put their bike away and set off in a car without stopping the recording.  I've also found results due to obviously wrong GPS recordings. In most cases these are honest mistakes and not attempts to cheat so it is annoying that the there is no way of just flagging the part of the ride that is obviously wrong. Instead the only option is to flag the whole ride. All results from a flagged ride are immediately removed from any segment leaderboards. Some users may feel this is a bit unfair if the ride included some genuine KOMs or PRs but I guess it may encourage users to trim their activities when errors like that occurs.

  • Can you make live segments available for the ebike category. I pay extra money for access to this feature and I keep waiting for it to be available. Live segments is total useless if you are competing against old school pedal people. This feature is worth the extra cost and I want to continue paying. The ebike category is really missing Challenges, Awards and or any cross platform functions too. Being an ebike rider I would like to have the same access to all of the same Strava features that a regular runner or cyclist has. My Apple Watch app doesn't even have a selection for ebike. I need to choose a regular bike as the sport and then ride my ride. Hopefully I have enough time to edit the ride to ebike sport on my phone or computer before the pedal police try to call me out as an ebike rider, Sometimes its the good cop and sometimes its the bad cop. Id rather avoid the awkwardness . Maybe add SAILING as a sport, I like to post my sails and currently I have to post them as WINDSURFING. Sailing is a sport. It was represented at The First Olympic Games...

  • Would it be possible to add an icon such as "SB" for Season Best results on Strava segments? As some of us are getting a bit on in age, it's getting harder and harder to hit PB's from 5 years ago or even achieving "trophies" on our rides.  Seeing a SB result would be motivating throughout the year and help me forget how old I'm getting.

  • I have seen this mentioned a few times already in the previous posts above but I will echo it again because I think it's a much needed feature.

     

    Please add Top 10 results to the profile page. We have an entire tab on the profile for KOM/QOM and for most people this is empty because only a select few, very fit individuals ever get KOM/QOM. It would be nice if this tab also showed your Top 10 results. That would make a lot of people feel better about themselves and also inspire them to get back out on that trail and try to get higher on the list. At the moment I cant find any easy way either on the app or the website where I can see a summary of my best results, Top 10 results. The only summary is my KOM results for which I have just 1. I must have at least 10-20 Top 10 results and it would be cool to be able to see them all and check back every now and then to see if my position on the Top 10 has changed etc. This should be easy to add this to the KOM/QOM list.

  • I would like to filter in > Explore > Segment Search in more detail by steepness (%), length, and maybe average speed. It will allow me to find certain types of Segments much easier.

    The reason that is important: by this, the App will be more attractive and the competitive part will only be greater (as you could find Segments which are doable or at least worth trying it)!
