Strava, one of the world’s most popular fitness tracking services, recently announced an increase in the prices of some of its subscription plans. This change has been met with considerable skepticism and criticism from current and prospective users of the platform.
How Strava’s Price Hike is Impacting its Users
The pricing model of Strava has historically been based on a free-to-use platform supplemented by an optional paid subscription. This subscription, known as Strava Summit, offers a variety of advanced features such as live tracking, personalized coaching, and access to exclusive challenge events. Until recently, the cost of the Summit subscription was a relatively affordable $7.99/month or $59.99/year.
However, Strava recently announced a price increase in its Summit subscription plans. The new prices are $9.99/month or $79.99/year for the basic plan, and $14.99/month or $119.99/year for the premium plan. The company has also removed the annual payment option, leaving only the monthly payment option.
This price increase has been met with criticism from users, with many voicing concerns about the affordability of the platform. Some users have also raised concerns about the lack of transparency from Strava regarding the reasons for the price increase. In addition, many users have noted that the new pricing model disproportionately affects those already financially disadvantaged and may not be able to afford a more expensive subscription.
Despite the backlash, Strava has defended the price increase, stating that the new prices reflect the value of the platform and its features. The company has also promised to continue to invest in the development of the platform and provide a quality experience to its users.
While the price increase by Strava has been controversial, it is yet to be seen how it will impact the platform in the long run. It remains to be seen whether the current and potential users will be willing to pay the higher prices for the subscription plans, or if the platform will suffer from a decrease in users due to the change.
