    I am traslating an app for the bike riders.
    I have to translate the expression "climbing ratio" that is "a ration between gain elevation and distance" (client explaination).
    Can someone give me a translation in Italian?
    Thank you

    Hi Betty!

    My suggestion is as follows: "rapporto di demoltiplicazione [del cambio]".

    In parole semplici, pendenza espressa in percentuale (che non è la traduzione letterale di climbing ratio, ma l'espressione italiana per esprimere il concetto p% = 100 Δy/Δs )

    Climbing statistics expressed in Italian: "salita da Valloire, 1237 metri di dislivello da quota 1405 a 2642, 6,8% come pendenza media e 11% come massima. If you need a single word to use pendenza is it.
