What is VAM?
VAM (Velocita Ascensionale Media) can be seen in ProTrainer 5 software. VAM is a cycling term for average climbing speed. To have VAM calculated, you will need to have recorded both speed and altitude data during exercise.
The unit for VAM is meters per hour (m/h). This value indicates a cyclist's ability to manage climbs.
In the software you will find the VAM value in the exercise Selection Info (View → Selection Info).
It is also displayed for each lap time if you hover your cursor on the curve lap time marker or if go to Lap Times / Markers → Altitude.
