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
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.
Local trail enforcement kooks: "It looks like 17 Joey's got buck wild and broke themselves off in this section this month. Better smooth out that rock garden.."
Garmin and Trailforks should sponsor him
Trailforks: "Hold my beer"
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.
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.
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.
Jump with motor = bigger jump
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.
"hey want to go ride that trail?"
"idk man let me check my phone to see if I can do it"
In all seriousness, accelerometers know when they’re tumbling randomly through the air vs traveling a smooth arc in a stable orientation. An above average arduino nerd could write the code to tell the difference.
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?
But I also never check the garmin app/page because who needs that when you have strava , haha.
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?
Never mind, I prefer my over-estimated perception of my jump height over reality anyway.
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.
My guess is that Strava doesn’t want to tie itself to close to specific hardware brand.
But I would be interested to go out there with a tape measure and see it with my own eyes
Can some kind soul walk me through finding this?
To paraphrase our lord and savior Frank Zappa, Shut up and ride your bike son.
Can't we just ride bikes???
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.
