VAM Calculations

VAM = Vertical height gain/time taken or Metres/Hour

W/kg = VAM / (2 + (% gradient factor/10)) x 100

Sustainable VAM = FTP or Zone Watts / Weight / Average of the climb or climbs you will ride during the day

Time (as a percentage of 60 minutes, so x 60) = Metres gained / Sustainable VAM

Here’s What You’ll Discover:

  • What situations VAM is best used for
  • Which VAM calculations to use and when
  • The best way to pace for long hilly events
  • Why limitations VAM has, and how to avoid them
