running session summary

Session Summary

Updated in 2.6.1 Chapeau presents a clean view of your run showing a succinct summary of critical run statistics, advanced statistics, nice overview of your route, and time-based metrics for power, effective power, pace, grade adjusted pace, step rate, heart rate, biomechanics and running dynamics.

Session Calendar

A slick overview of your training. See weekly summary for distance, load, energy, and more. Use the calendar to see your sessions, navigate to session details, and view athlete journal metrics.

Search Sessions

Trying to find that run where you had a long run or best power or fast sprint or climbed for what felt like days? Use Chapeau’s filter capabilities to search your entire history based on run statistics as well as time-based statistics.

running biomechanics


Updated in 2.6.1 Your watch and power meter collect a lot of useful data, Chapeau uses this data to highlight your biomechanical form during the run through visualization of Stride Length, Flight Time, Flight Time Ratio, Leg Spring Stiffness, and Form Power Ratio.

Running Dynamics

Chapeau handles classic Running Dynamics data too, easily visualize your Ground Contact Time, Vertical Oscillation, Vertical Ratio, and Running Effectiveness.

Killer Map

This map has it all! Silky smooth interactions with your run charts, current power bests, pace, grade adjusted pace, and power overlays. All the information you need for post run analysis and for pre-race planning

Map Overlays

Training Plan Session

Model your gains by including your plans. Fill out your future training plans by importing intervals from erg or mrc trainer files.

Loading Feedback

During loading, Chapeau may mark some sessions as invalid based on the data it contains. For example when a session is detected that has a speed or power which seems unreasonable (100 mph for instance), the run will be marked invalid. To make it clear why a session was marked invalid, Chapeau now provides feedback at load time indicating the reason:
