Hi Strava Team,

I think it would be great to add Strava Avatars in the future because everything is going digital.

This is important because:

  • The future is digital!
  • The avatar is the digital representation of us in Strava's Digital World
  • We can purchase and sell digital gear on Strava's platform 
  • There can be Strava-specific shoes, bikes, gear, etc. that represents us online and that we can trade with other athletes on platform
  • There can also be Brand-specific shoes, bikes, gear, etc. that we receive for completing challenges. The more challenges we complete, the better we can deck out our avatars.
  • The avatar can be used to provide a digital representation of the athletes during replays on the map. The runner runs, the cyclist cycles. And it's cool because it's for all sports!

An example when I would use this? Post-race or post-workouts, I can send a video to my friends that would be like a funny avatar version of me running the marathon overlaid on the map. Other athletes who have also enabled avatars can be in the video. It's a better and more personalized replay on top of maps. 

Follow me on Strava!
Next Race: Malibu Half (11/5/23)
