Better Than Custom Built Unicycles!

My family recently bought four Nimbus Equinox 20" Freestyle Unicycles.
Wow! These are fantastic unicycles, lightweight, beautiful, and easy to ride.
Over the years we've owned a few beginner unis and a few custom built unis. I would rate these Nimbus unicycles even better than our custom built unis.
If you are considering purchasing a unicycle don't short-change yourself by getting a cheap one. Cheap unis are heavy, clunky and not as easy to ride. The difference between our older unis and our new high-end Nimbus's is about the same as between a Chevette and a Corvette.
Save up a few more bucks and get a Nimbus Equinox 20" Freestyle Unicycle you'll be glad you did.

This is by far the best freestyle unicycle I've ever been on.
Everything is very durable and it's very lightweight making it perfect for jumps and spins. It is an absolute pleasure to ride and perform with!

I gave the Equinox a spin last night. Hands down the best freestyle uni
I have ever ridden. Very nice, well done Roger! The 400mm long neck
frame is perfect for me, looks like it was custom built for my leg
length. I guess that means most people will be opting for the 300mm
length. I wonder how hard it would be to cut the 400mm one down nicely,
say if someone wanted a 370mm long neck frame?
I usually ride with 125mm cranks so was not sure how I would find 100mm
and wondered about swapping them out. I'm glad I didn't, 100mm make for
very smooth pedalling and I didn't notice any loss in control or torque.
I did notice it was much easier to zoom around the hall at speed,
zipping in and out of places. The unicycle feels much lighter than my
ancient nimbus II long neck and is very responsive to ride.
I am impressed with the grifter tyre. It has a lovely tread pattern for
gliding and wheel walking, while still having plenty of bounce if you
are wanting to get airborne.
The saddle feels nice and comfy and is easy to get in and out of seat
out skills. The contours on the handle have been changed for the better
since I last got a nimbus gel saddle. The new shape feels much nicer on
I like the frame and it works well for one foot skills.
Overall, a very good uni.
