IBP Index

What is IBP index?


Comparative chart of IBP index values


The IBP index is an algorithm that analyses the difficulty of a mountain or road bike route or a running trail generating a precise number.

Our index will help you to compare the difficulty of different trails.

The measure of the difficulty of a route is different from the effort it requires: a route with an IBP index of 60 will be very hard for a debutant, a pretty normal one for someone with an average preparation, and very comfortable for a professional cyclist (see comparative chart).

 The effort required by a trail depends on: your fitness + the pace of the race + weather conditions + IBP index
