Strava Summit | New Pricing Structure | Training, Safety and Analysis
Strava just launched a new pricing structure for Strava’s social network called Strava Summit. For those that are wondering what Strava is, Strava works with your mobile phone or favorite GPS device to track your activities (Running and Cycling) and allow you to share those activities with your friends. In the cycling world Strava is huge as cyclists compete for KOMs & QOMs.
Strava Summit includes 3 options or packs to choose from including
- Training Pack
- Safety Pack
- Analysis Pack
Strava offers a 3-tiered Summit pack. You can choose the pick that fits your needs or get all three.
Strava Training Pack
The Strava Training pack is designed to help athletes customize their workouts and goals and perform post workout analysis. One item that should have been included in the Training pack should have been live segments, since segments play a huge role in training and racing. Unfortunately you must purchase the Analysis Pack in order to have that functionality.
- Custom Goals: Set goals for segments, cycling power, personal time or distance. Weekly and Yearly Progress Goals help you stay motivated and keep your training on track.
- Training Plans: For running and cycling to help you achieve your fitness goals.
- Filtered Leaderboards: Filter segment leaderboards by age and weight.
- Race Analysis: Detailed post-race breakdowns of your pace fluctuation and splits.
- Segment Efforts: Compare performances with other athletes on your favorite segments.
- Live Performance Data: Speed, distance, time, and data from your connected devices, in real time, on your mobile device.
- Pace Analysis: Visualize your pace zones and lap data for all your running workouts.
Strava Safety Pack
The Safety Pack is designed with safety in mind providing details including a beacon and a personal heatmap to help authorities and family members locate you in case of emergency.
- Beacon: Live location tracking for safer activities for athletes, and peace of mind for their friends and family. Beacon is available on the iOS and Android app, as well as selected Garmin devices.
- Personal Heatmaps: Unique visualizations of all of the places you’ve run or ridden.
Strava Analysis Pack
The Analysis Pack is geared towards post workout analysis, but includes live segments, which seems a bit odd.
