Strava has today unveiled their new ‘Summit’ membership, replacing their Premium offering, which allows runners to tailor the features the app provides. Breaking the three main components of Premium down into three cheaper packages, runners can now pick and choose what they want to do with the app.
What is Strava Summit?
In place of the Premium membership, runners will now be able to subscribe to three different packs – training, safety and analysis. Runners can also pay for an all-inclusive bundle if they want to continue using all three.
The Training Pack - £2.49 per month
Featuring everything you need to get the most out of the training features on the app, this plan includes goal and metrics with training plans, real-time GPS tracking for smart phones, custom goals by time, distance, power or segment, race analysis to break down pace fluctuations and splits and filtered leaderboards.
The Analysis Pack - £2.49 per month
If you use Strava mostly through syncing your device, this is the pack for you. The analysis pack gives you detailed insights into your performance and allows you to get a deeper understanding of the impact of your run. It also has power analysis and Live Segements.
The Safety Pack - £2.49 per month
Designed for runners who want to explore freely without worrying, the main draw of the safety pack is Strava’s Beacon feature, which allows you to share your real-time location with loved ones as you run. There are also route plans and personal heatmaps in this bundle.
How much does Strava Summit cost?
If you want to subscribe to just one pack, it’s £2.49 per month for £18.99 for the entire year. The full Summit service for all three packs is £47.99 per year. There’s also the option to pay for all three packs on a monthly basis for £6.99. Existing Strava Premium members will not have any increase to their price.
James Quarles, CEO of Strava explained the reasons behind these changes: “Strava is a community of athletes helping each other achieve their goals. 92% of Strava athletes who set goals remain active ten months later. Summit Packs are designed to better tailor and personalise our features to members’ needs. Whether your goal is returning from injury or training for your first marathon, Summit Packs provide the performance tools you need along the way.”
