Understanding Percent Incline in the Stryd Treadmill Experience
Updated over a week ago

The Stryd Mobile App Treadmill Experience offers the ability to build structured workout segments with assigned percent inclines so that your power reflects uphill running on a treadmill.

Stryd utilizes percent grade as our measure incline. Percent grade is determined by the number of vertical feet that are gained over 100 horizontal feet. As an example, a 10% grade on a treadmill means that the runner would gain 10 vertical feet as they ran 100 horizontal feet:


It should be noted that this is not the same as degrees of an angle. A 10 degree angle is substantially steeper than a 10% incline. A 100% grade is equal to a 45 degree angle (100 vertical feet covered over 100 horizontal feet.
