Trailforks Now Provides Garmin Jump Stats

Aug 6, 2021
by Todd Neumarker  

The latest Edge series of Garmin bike computers provides several new "Mountain Bike Specific" metrics when recording your ride. One of the more interesting metrics is the jump detection feature. In our initial tests on the Edge 830 we found that little bumps, wheelies, and hopping up curbs would count as a jump. But if you just ignore those little bumps, and concentrate on the bigger air, the jump metrics (speed, distance, and hang-time) are pretty accurate. We found the data to be good enough to compare jump numbers and provide measurable performance improvements. To provide this data to users, the Trailforks team has added jump metrics with a little bit of historical data to user ridelogs.

Now when you record your ride with a jump detection capable Garmin Edge Computer and have a connected account, your ridelog will display all the jumps on the map. The "Jump" icon will be bigger if the jump score is higher, so you can quickly find the big jumps you're interested in.


SETUP REQUIREMENTS
This feature currently only works with Garmin Edge units that support the Mountain Bike Metrics:
• Edge 130 Plus
• Edge 530
• Edge 830
• Edge 1030 Plus
Note: In order for Trailforks to process the Garmin data, you must connect Trailforks to your Garmin Connect account. This can be done in the Trailforks User Profile “Settings” under “Connections”.
Note: Existing connections between apps will continue to work if you enable this. So if your Strava account is already connected to your Garmin or your Trailforks account, everything will keep working.


Jump Stats

On the ridelog view page, there is a new set of tabs to the right to provide different data metrics about your ride. The new "Jump" tab will indicate all sorts of data about your jump session. The header will display the key metrics like your biggest jump, along with jump metric totals. Below the header are 2 tables that break out your complete jump list and your biggest jumps on each of the trails that were detected. The biggest jump for each trail is shown next to your all-time best for that same trail.

To quickly zoom into any specific jump, just click the colored rectangle that lists your jump score and the map will pan to the location on the map. The map will display jumps in a bigger icon if the jump is bigger, but this also provides a quick way to scroll through all your jumps and quickly locate them on the map.



Jumps by Trail

The Jump Tab also provides more jump statistics below the main jump list in a table labelled Jumps by Trail. This table lists all the trails that we detected on the ride, and lists your jump totals for this ride, and a cumulative total from ridelog history. In addition to jump totals, you can compare your highest jump score to your personal best.

Click the trail name to see how you stack up against other riders.

You can also see jump stats for any trail you may be interested in, but have not yet ridden. Any trail detail page that has at least one ride with jump statistics recorded, will have a Jumps tab listed under the drop-down tab More. This will bring you to a Jump Data page that will display basic jump stats, biggest jumps scores and your personal jump scores.

As an example, I just got done riding Levitate, and I want to see what the jump stats are on the Tsunami Trail at Deer Valley. I search for Tsunami, select it, and the Jumps tab from the More dropdown


The Jump Data page will display general stats about the trail, the Biggest Jumpers, and your own personal stats. The jump metrics from the Garmin devices provide speed, distance and hangtime. These 3 values are combined to provide a single jump score.


Since this is a new feature, we are excited to see more riders record rides and show us the limits. The score color ranges may need to be adjusted, and we will continually tune this feature with more stats.


Get Started

To start tracking jumps, you must connect your Trailforks Account to your Garmin Connect Account. Click on the provided link below and follow the instructions: Connect your Garmin

As you fill out the Garmin Connection form, you will notice that you have the option to Sync to Strava. By checking this box Trailforks will send all the Garmin data to Strava immediately after the ride. This is a good way to go if you only record rides with the Trailforks App and/or a Garmin devices. If your Garmin Connect account is already configured to send your ride data directly to Strava, do not enable Sync to Strava, or you may see ride data duplicated in Strava.

Once you have followed all the steps to connect your Garmin Account, you can verify the connection by going to your User Settings shown in the image to the right. Your user settings page allows you to setup your account preferences.

Once you have successfully connected your account, the connection status will be displayed under the sub-heading Connections and will show "Garmin Connected". If your account does not show "Garmin Connected", click on the Garmin Auto Import Settings link to back to the connection setup page.

 @jakalwil: Both can stay home as far as I'm concerned. To each their own, but the best rides are when I leave electronics in the truck. I don't care if I was fast, as long as it felt fast and fun.

People need to get over this incessant need to fulfil ego by tracking. measuring, competing and sharing everything. It isn't good for our collective psyche to be constantly comparing ourselves on every level. For some it's just good fun, but for most it's just another input to the anxiety spiral.
  • 14 2
 @pourquois-pas: ever consider some people track purely for curiosity and health tracking? I always record on my watch, but I also "don't care if I was fast, as long as it felt fast and fun". It's not the electronics themselves that make people crazy, it's the people's reactions to the electronics.

I've never once gotten upset because someone "ruined my segment time", because I really don't care how I am compared to anyone else but myself. But having all the stats available does allow me to see things like general improvement over time, or niggling injuries are actually bad enough to take break as proven by changes in the ride log, or if I'm getting sick and should slow down or take a break to promote faster recovery.

 @justinfoil: Cool, we'd probably have a hoot riding together!

I still think we are collectively spending too much time measuring up against each other, even people who do it for seemingly casual or fun purposes, admittedly like myself... hence the tech free rides tend to be more enjoyable. I get human drive and competitiveness, but it feels like tech sometimes tries to quantify things that should remain subjective.
  • 3 1
 @pourquois-pas: well, analyzing bike shit in between work shit when I can't be riding anyway doesn't really hurt anything, and might help make shit more enjoyable (less bent bolts or smashed shocks means more riding. Even something like puzzling on brake pads for a ride or two could mean more speed for less arm pump for the rest of time, for example), so f*ck it, keep on tech-ing on, IMHO.

 @SuperHighBeam: So true, when I scroll down the list of jumps, I don't even bother looking at any jump that doesn't start with a 1.xx sec hang-time. There is one really long and flat sender on my test run where the distance is fun to try and beat my best
  • 2 0
 @SuperHighBeam: one of the hardest jumps I've done had very little air time. You look at the metric and it's a "no big deal". Then you look at the speed I was going and the distance traveled and you get a rough idea how big the gap was.

But I've done jumps at the bike park that were nowhere as impressive, since anyone can hit them, and they had great hang time.

So I kinda stopped paying attention.

 The only news worthy update Trailforks could possibly make would be decreasing their monthly fees substantially. Or perhaps introducing a lower cost product that does without all the frills and is a simple map, GPS and trail name/ rating with good topographic info. For a one time fee of less than one month trailforks membership you can purchase Canada Maps Pro which gets you much of this information.

 @todd @theflyingtoad @trailforks how about a way to track trail work. Hours, sections of trail, mark areas needing repaired. This could help log volunteer hours for grants.
  • 3 0
 You can do that today. Many trail associations do this today to keep track. Any work hours can be assigned as a report. Trail condition reports have a form called "Trail Work" where you can provide this information. You can then view work report date ranges by region to track attendance, hours, etc.

 It will drive you nuts until you can figure out how to turn off the stupid jump alerts. Imagine going down a trail with the thing constantly beeping at you to let you know you just “jumped”. No shit Sherlock, I would have never known if you didn’t beep. I like my Garmin to track rides, but shake my head at some of these “features”.

 This is more of a garmin problem but the fenix 6 offers this feature (measures jumps). Mine has never once registered a jump.

I'm assuming considering you seem so sure of the edge series its garmins interpretation of the accelerometers data.

Can anyone confirm the edges consistently record jumps?

 They do. You might need to have the Fenix mounted on your handlebars to get the jump detection to work properly.

 In testing this feature I multiple bike park laps over multiple days with an Edge 830. For low speed it is not very accurate, and gives you credit for little wheelies and such. But once you start to do some real table tops and gaps, its really good.

 Yeah. It's not terribly accurate overall, but on the bigger jumps I think it's close. Close enough at least to see progression between rides, and that's all I'm really concerned with.

To me the most exciting thing about trailforks importing it will be that, according to the description at least, the UI sounds better than the *terrible* UI of the jump stats on Garmin connect.

In Garmin connect it shows you a sequential list of all the jumps on your ride, but there is *no* easy way, apart from actually counting the number of icons on the map, from the beginning, to get the position, to tell *where* in the ride jumps are on the list. It's maddening, to say the least. Would it have been that hard to code it so that a click on a jump in the list highlights the corresponding icon on the ride map?

 @SuperHighBeam: The data includes a tag for height, but the value is not populated. I don't know if Garmin intends to get that working in the future or not. But I am not sure how they would do it. Is air pressure change accurate enough, triangulation, etc.

 @todd: I basically just count my bunny hops.

 @todd: I suspect the Garmin altimeter isn’t accurate and/or precise enough to reliably produce a jump height for any one ride. However, It wouldn’t be too involved to calculate height from other metrics if you could use aggregate data to get an accurate enough elevation of the takeoff and landing to tell if it’s a level jump, step up, or step down/drop. Feel free to hit me up if you’re interested in doing this; I’d be happy to help.
  • 1 0
 @feldybikes: Seems like with a sampling of baseline rides without jumping you should be able to map out a trail in 3 dimensions which should permit evaluation of jump height by comparing elevations along the trail. GPS measures in 3 dimensions. Not sure if the altimeter is more or less sensitive than the GPS measurement. Barometric altimeters are sensitive to changes in weather which can skew elevation measurements if I'm not mistaken. I'm not interested in doing this, but I'd be interested to see someone else do it Wink
  • 1 0
 @SuperHighBeam: while GPS does map in 3 dimensions, the z direction terribly inaccurate. It’s my understanding this is the reason many GPSes also have altimeters. I like the idea of using “no-jump” data to map out altitude. The question is if there’s enough tracks that show jump data for the ride (indicating they have the function enabled) but no jump at any or particular location. I think one would probably want to use the median of many points to get a reasonably accurate picture.
  • 1 0
 @feldybikes: This is a good point. Paragliding using barometric altimeters in the top tier system due to the sensitivity. I'm not sure how those pressure measurements are converted into precise and accurate elevation measurements though. An again, to really get that jump height measurement a trail would need to be characterized without a rider jumping off of anything. Maybe a hiker with a pedometer equipped with a barometric altimeter?

 Yet when are garmin going to fix the jump stats? I done a 6ft table top, and it told me i'd jumped 14ft. Dropping of a kerb registers as a 6ft jump so i don't know how it works this stuff out. Cool feature to have, if only it was nearly accurate.

  • 2 1
 I have had the 530 for a while. I find the stats on jumping interesting, but not super accurate. I think it's probably a resolution and refresh rate thing, but it tends to over estimate distance. NGL though - i think it's cool. What has been lacking is the way to compare between rides and have a meaningful UX to work with on the connect app. That way you can compare at least relatively. This will up the value for sure (if you like that sort of thing).

 I won't use trailforks as I can't modify the map/trail info and it's all wrong due to sub-par admins in my region.
I makes trailfork literally useless (and frustrating).
If a feature was implemented where I can record my route and create my own private map, that would solve most of my TrailForks issues.
  • 1 0
 TrailForks is all user provided data, why can't you provide the fix you want? Even if the trail is already marked with bad GPS alignment you can submit what you think is the correct alignment and the admin can take your data instead or better yet aggregate all the rides that cross that section to make the alignment more accurate.
  • 1 0
 @NSmith11: The admin(s) is the problem, he is too local and won't add most trails to try and keep them secret, even if they have existed for many many years. Trailforks is basically used to steer tourists away from the fun stuff.

 @tacoshoppedrew: Sorry, I'm not talking about the big sender, you don't go that far there. The flat jump at the bottom doesn't feel like you go very far because hang time is only 1.1-1.2 seconds, but you're going 31+ mph when you hit it. If your hangtime is even 1 second at 31 mph, that is 45 feet. Satellite imagery confirms, lip to start of the turn is 60+ feet.

But I would be interested to go out there with a tape measure and see it with my own eyes

 I prefer to lie to friends afterwards and tell them how much air I got, sorta like catching a record fish when nobody is around. This ruins my credibility.

 Is this connected to the net? I'd guess if it was they'll end up using this data to build jumps into all their future released devices.

 Not working for me, anyone else get this working? Perhaps it hasn’t actually been released yet?

 Is "Yes, err no. Maybe?" a valid answer?

I feel like trailforks support is gaslighting me at this point. I was wondering the same as you, so I emailed support asking about it on the 13th after logging a few rides, since the initial announcement, and seeing nothing. Not just no data, but the tab wasn't even there in the interface. I had tried a couple different browsers, incognito mode, cleared cookies, emptied browser cache, etc. No dice.

Next day I get an email back saying, "Just click on the tab on your ride log and you'll see the data.", with screenshots of my ride log and the "Jumps" tab. So I log into confirm, and lo and behold there's the previously missing tab with my jump stats having magically appeared. Same for all the rides (only 3) logged since the initial announcement.

So I reply to support, saying something along the lines of, "Tell me you flipped a switch on the back end or re-imported those rides or something 'cause I *know* that tab wasn't there."

To which they reply (paraphrasing here), "Nope. Din't do nuthin' Maybe it was cached or something..."

Cut to about a week later sans riding, 'cause my suspension was out for service, and I finally log a ride yesterday morning. Loggin into Trailforks just now to check, and guess what, no jump tab on the log for that ride. I'm half-expecting someone from trailforks to read this and it will magically appear next time I log in.

Suffice to say, I think there are some bugs to be worked out.

 Interesting twist: this will make for Strava lines that are gnarly than the original trail.

 A more useful feature would be if trailforks maps updated on garmin devices more than once every 73 years

 According to my Garmin 530 I did a jump of 126 ft last winter, while sitting in an uplift van with bike being towed behind on a trailer. It's a load of bollox
