Unicycle.com announces the Nimbus 36″ Impulse Disc Unicycle with Shadow Handle – new for 2010
The culmination of 2 years design, development and testing has produced a new pinnacle to the 36” unicycle market. This is the first production unicycle to be produced with disc brakes. It is also the first unicycle fitted with the latest generation handle, the Shadow Handle.
The brakes fitted to this unicycle offer considerably smoother and controlled braking than traditional rim brakes. They remove the snagging and inconsistent braking caused by even the best rim brakes. The disc is fitted inside the frame so protecting it from accidental damage and keeping it away from the rider’s legs. The brake is fitted to a superlight aluminium spindled Nimbus ISIS hub, helping this to be the lightest fully kitted 36” unicycle on the market.
The wheel is constructed using the new light weight 36” disc stealth rim with its 36 18mm lightening holes that reveal the light weight green rim tape.
The ‘Shadow’ handle is constructed to offer maximum versatility without any compromise in the performance. The low profile of the base allows even relatively small riders to take advantage of the handle. The base also by-passes the traditional 4 bolt seatpost fitting and utilises the front and real handle bolts so giving the saddle and handle an unparalleled rigidity and stiffness.
The ‘Shadow’ handle is supported on top of the latest generation super tough 25.4 BMX style pivotal seatpost. This allows for 4 x 6 degree adjustments via an integral high tensile bolt.
The handle comes with 2 ‘T’ extensions as standard, one straight and one with a 30 degree bend. Both of these are 400mm long so allowing you to trim them to the length you require. Should you wish you also have an option to adjust their length via a clamp by up to 100mm (4”). These ‘T’ handles can be fitted either facing up, down or straight depending on your preference.
