Everything is better with sauce.

FACT: Sauce for Strava is rated at 1.21 gigascovilles.

Find peak power in your rides and runs

In addition to power, there is Normalized Power, Pace (including GAP), Heart Rate, Cadence and VAM. If the athlete weight is known a running power estimation is available too!

In depth details for peak efforts.

Everyone loves the badges BTW.

Access to key performance metrics in the Analysis page.

The analysis page is an awesome tool by itself. Sauce builds on this page by adding unique data fields and giving you access to the raw data values. For running and swimming activities this page is un-hidden so you can do in-depth analysis regardless of the activity type.

Options for activities and the dashboard.

Most settings are optional so you can turn on and off whatever you'd like.

Display and submit comments in the activity page.

Most people that install Sauce don't even realize the inline comments weren't done by Strava. It's otherwise wasted space in the page so why not put it there!?

Dark mode is so in right now.

This is probably the coolest new feature in my opinion. I'm not a huge fan of dark theme's but this one turned out fantastic. More themes are coming too..

Export to TCX and GPX for all activities.

Sauce adds GPX and TCX export to any activity, not just your own. Fun fact: this feature was a real PITA! I had to write a TCX and GPX generator from scratch!

Extra overview stats and settable FTP and weight.

FTP and weight are both visible and settable. This can be really handy when you know the athlete provided the wrong weight or it's simply not available from Strava. A really handy feature for getting accurate Watts/kg and TSS.

Sauce was created by me, Justin.

Watching the Tour de France in 2019

Howdy!

It's important to me that people know Sauce was created by a real person. I started this project for fun in 2015 to add some missing features to strava and to fix a few annoying issues like low-contrast text. This was really just a tool for myself but I thought maybe others would like it too, so I published it in the Chrome Web Store without much further thought.

The main feature at the time was the Critical Power table inspired by the great TrainingPeaks WKO software. For quite a while that was really the only feature worth noting but I kept making tweaks and adding things here and there in my free time, eventually adding run support and now swim support. The critical power table became the selectable "Peak" tables which lets you find all sorts of peak performance metrics such as heart rate, VAM (climbing speed), cadence, pace, etc. I got some great feedback from users and eventually Sauce started to really take shape.

I like to say Sauce is "social." At the heart of all these features is the idea that you should be able to use them for any public activity, not just your own. This makes it a great tool for seeing what the best in the world are capable of and for comparing your efforts to your friends and frenemies. While some other 3rd party tools focus on the training and planning aspects of strava, Sauce is aimed at providing ubiquitous access to all activities. It's the Eric Raymond of strava extensions, if you'll permit the very nerdy reference.

Active users have increased over the years. For quite a while there were just a few hundred active users, but it has grown to nearly 10,000 15,000 in the last couple of years. Reviews have been pretty great and I've enjoyed working on this project more in recent times.

So if you think you might like a Sauced up strava experience, give it a try. If you'd like to help me work on this project more, please consider becoming a patron, which gives you access to bonus content and better support.

Cheers!

Gimme the cash!?

FACT: Your support makes this sustainable.

This is fair-use, right?
