MTB Chart is advanced analytics tool for mountain bike enthusiasts.
It records all types of data provided by iPhone sensors, process them, and builds comprehensive performance report to improve your riding skills.
Beside calculating standard values of distance, time, speed and elevation - it is going much more further.
MTB Chart applies intelligent analytics to understand how you actually ride, your strengths and weaknesses.
Then it visualizes your riding skills all over the trail with 3 performance dimensions:
  • Technique - ability to control bike on very rough terrains like rocks and roots
  • Flowing - riding high speed descent sections particularly singletracks and fire roads
  • Cornering - effectively pass corners with minimum speed loss
MTB Chart collects iPhone sensors data and applies physics of mountain bike riding to estimate your performance taking in account multiple factors:
  • Descent grade
  • Rocks and roots
  • Corner radius
  • Breaking and acceleration
  • Air resistance
  • MTB Chart is intended for intensive shredding primary on descents and lift assisted trails.
  • MTB Chart does not require internet connection so it could be used in the most wild places over the world.
There are 6 different bikes split by suspension types. You should choose the bike with suspension closer to your actual bike. Examples:
  • Specialized Enduro (170mm /170mm) - Full suspension 160mm
  • Transition Scout (125mm/140mm) - Full suspension 140mm
  • YT Tues (200mm/200mm) - Full suspension 200mm
There are 2 main differences:
  • MTB Chart is specifically crafted for mountain bikers who love to ride gnarly trails, enduro races, bike park and downhill tracks.
  • While Strava intended to improve your body fit, MTB Chart main goal is to improve your technique and bike controlling skills.
No you shouldn’t, application automatically detects when you stop riding.
To assure more precise analysis results, your iPhone should be firmly fixed in backpack or upper body pockets while riding.
It is better to avoid lower body pockets as they are hardly stressed during pedaling and it could be treated improperly.
