Expand weight categories over 200lbs/95kg for Segment Filters

I am a paying customer. I am over 200lbs. (248lbs) I would like to see the weights above 200lbs segmented like you do for weights under 200lbs. Why discriminate and categorize us Clydes as all "above 200" when you categorize weight in 10-15lb segmetns for folks under 200....? One of the reasons I pay for Strava is so I can compare myself to others who weigh as much as me. Not 20 or 30 lbs less. I just want t he same features paying customers under 200bs get. Which I think is fair, don;t you?

  • If they care about numbers then they appreciate my $$ too.   Strava has elements of a "unstructured time trial" and give users a "race-like" experience using it.  however it's not a Traditional race therefore traditional rules and regulations may not work.  Anybody over 200lbs that's a premium customer is not getting the same level of service. usability, function and value that those under 200lbs receive.  I don;t care if there are only 5 guys in my category. I care about where I'm ranked against those athletes.  That's the essence of the experience Strava has created, I'm paying for and want parity with all the other athlete/customers.

  • I am a big guy. 6'1" 265. Because of my size I struggle to keep up with the median size/weight cyclist. When I realized I could filter by weight with Strava Premium membership I was all in. Paid my 1 yr membership and found out that the largest weight class is 200 lbs +. The difference gravity and wind resistance plays on a 200 lb person vs. a 265 lb person is significant! Will you consider breaking the upper weight groups into smaller segments? i.e. 201 - 225, 226 - 250, 251 +. this would give us larger people a more accurate assessment of our performance.

  • Love hearing the comments from fellow tech folk. We know the data is in the system. They have the models and logic and just need some simple tweaks.  Come on STRAVA PM...Listen to your customers.

  • I agree - since I don't have a power meter or anything the main value I get out of a premium membership is the ability to set segment goals which is nice but I'm not positive its' worth $6/month.  

    If the reason for the 200+ grouping is so that the lighter folks don't see a ton of weight classes they don't care about, maybe we could get the same treatment and see a 200 lbs and below (that we can then expand for more info).  I figure about 50 pounds up or down is probably the range people care the most about.

  • Come on Strava PM are you listening. How hard can this be, you have the data model.....Give us over 200lbs the same granularity as those under 200 have!!!

  • I will second this request. We have to be a large enough segment of the Strava population to warrant this change. Also, a fit 205lbr is a far cry from the 250lb Clyde that is on his weight loss mission. It is not fair to compare a bull with a mustang! Sure, they both have hoofs and they both weigh about 1/2 a ton, but one is always gonna win. So, get yourselves wired in and make it happen!

  • It also needs to be monitored better. When I sort my rides for 200lbs or heavier, the top ten spots are usually occupied by people who are way under 200lbs and have intentionally or unintentionally shown their weight as heavier in their profile. See attached pictures of a segment I rode on Saturday. Now if Erica on the left is 200 lbs then I'll eat my underwear.

  • I'd just submitted a support ticket suggesting this, and was directed to come post in the forum about it.

    This is a very good suggestion, and cannot possibly take much compute power and programming to implement it.

    Even if they didn't want to have it divided up every 15-20 lbs like the <200 lb divisions, they could at least divide it up every 25-30 lbs, or have the grap grow as the weight goes higher, such as:
    200 - 219 (20lb spread)

    220 -  244 (25 lb spread)

    245 - 269 (25lb spread)

    270 - 300 (30 lb spread)

    300+  (all the superclydes lumped in together)

    As it is now, we have people weighing 300 or 400 lbs who just started riding and are working hard to lose weight, but are riding 10 miles at 10-12 mph, being compared against guys weighing 205 lbs doing centuries at 17-20 mph.  Even a guy weighing 245 lbs is in a vastly different boat from a guy just over 200, but is way, way better off than a guy weighing 280 or 300 lbs.  The whole idea of comparison by weight category is completely meaningless when all the 200+ are lumped into a single category.

    Like one poster above, I pay my $6/month premium membership because I like the things that premium membership adds over and above normal measurement.  I'd really like to value comparison by weight category, but however strong a rider I am, and however many miles I have ridden, comparing my performance at the 269 lbs I was this morning (or the 288 I was a year ago) with the performance of a guy weighing, for all I know, 210 or so, is stupid.

  • C'mon Strava the Athletes under 200 lbs aren;t going to vote for this. C'mon you've got the logic already in your models and this is an easy add to the schema.

  • It's been a year and a half since this was asked for. Obviously quite a few people agree with this. It's disheartening to see no meaningful response from Strava. This should be a no-brainer. If they have good reasons why they actually wish not to do this, they could at least let us know what they are.

    As it is, I've let my premium membership lapse, and I'm not inclined to renew it in the short to medium term. The bottom line is that I'm not currently seeing what value a premium membership brings me. That may change in the next few months, but for now that's my feeling on the matter. Improving the 200+ lb weight class situation would be actual value that would probably influence my decision to renew premium status. I guess we'll see.

    Strava, would you please follow up with your user community on this? The ball's in your court.

  • I have suspended my premium account until they show some love to clydes!  As stated here before, it is ridiculous that it has taken over a year and this has not been added.

  • I'm all about a higher weight classification. I'm 270lbs and ride a framed Wolftrax fat bike. I'd love to see what I rate against other bigger riders.

  • Please add 105kg,  115kg and above 125kg . Then I think you will satisfy most cyclists. My bodyweight has been between 108kg and 115kg since I started cycling, and I want to compare my results With bigger cyclists.

  • I've got about 2 months until my subscription runs out. C'mon Strava don't lose a paying customer over this. Expand the weight categories over 200lbs/95KG etc.

  • I agree with adding more weight class segments.  There is a huge difference in a 200# rider, 220# rider, and 250# rider.  Bigger riders not only have increased weight they also have increased wind drag from larger body frames.  Adding two more weight classes would allow Clydesdales to compete against other Clydesdales.  Also, USA Triathlon rules now classify Clydedales as people over 220#'s.

  • I also submitted a support ticket, which they replied and said to post here.  We need more categories for heavier people.

  • I'm not premium. I  tried to looked at the weight class and realised  I had to pay.  I was tempted until I saw it lumps +200lbs in the same category. So I wont be signing up for now...

  • I have a club called 'Sixteen Stoners' ( 224lbs to 238lbs) I guess. Join the club. Then you can view results by club? Just me at the moment :)

  • Elle, Thanks for the update. This would be a really great thing for all the users above 200lbs and I believe would help you drive more premium membership and higher customer satisfaction.

  • Adding my vote for this. I'm 6'9", 350 lbs. Comparing my performance to someone at 205 lbs does nothing for me. I know there are not tons of people my size, but still.

    This is par for the course -- most clothes, cars, shoes, even doorways are not made for folks my height. Unfortunately simple database queries are just as difficult?

  • STRAVA- Please listen to your paying customers. I am a premium member and I don't think I will continue without this being addressed. Please read all of the reviews and see for yourself......we all agree: Make a 225-250 weight category, and a 250-300 weight category, and a 300+ weight category. It is sincerely motivating to use this app, but if it is only partially useful to us clydesdales, then what is the point? Please take care of this.

  • As a paying customer I suggested this to the Strava team yesterday.   They gave me this link and told me to search the forums to see if any others are interested in additional weight classes.   Looks like they need to pay A LOT more attention to customer requests because there are many that have been requesting this for over a year!    This is something that is VERY SIMPLE to add and would take there web team all of about 1 minute to do.    I weight 235 lbs and just completed Deathride 2015.   I would like to compare myself to others that are closer to my weight and not just all those over 200+!       

    This change needs to be added immediately Strava!

    • THIS IS THE MOST UP TO DATE RESPONSE FROM STRAVA ABOUT THIS ISSUE

      HOPEFULLY YOU WILL ALL READ THIS.

      Hi Eric,

      Thanks for the message. I apologize for taking so long to get back to you, but I was waiting to meet with a Product Manager and an Engineer who are beginning work on redesigning segment leaderboards. I can't promise anything, but there is motivation from within the company to add more granularity to leaderboards, especially for weight and age classes. We're just starting work on this now. However, this sort of project is pretty massive in scope, as it touches most of the Strava infrastructure. I won't really have any updates for the next month or so at the earliest. Please know that I'm doing everything I can to add more age and weight classes to segment leaderboards!

      Please feel free to reach out at anytime and please feel free to drop my name in a ticket if you'd like to speak with me directly.

      Cheers,
      Jeremy
      Strava Support Team

  • It seems that this thread is not reaching the correct eyeballs in Strava. I personally, will not go pro without +200 lbs categories. So the next question is how do we get an actual response from Strava on this topic, and demonstrate to them the ROI on adding more categories? A survey? Twitter campaign ? #strava200 ?
