The Nimbus Hatchet builds on the amazing platform that the Oregon created, and moves it onto the next level. The frame comes with the brake installed on a new precision IS mount. The hose is also clipped in place with special red aluminium clips. The main challenge with “Fat-Uni’s” is the requirement for a super wide frame. This can make it uncomfortable to ride as it catches the riders' legs. To resolve this the Nimbus Hatchet moves the frame behind the riders legs giving maximum clearance. This also means you can run some of the largest tires on the market, which includes the Snowshoe 5.05" tire.
- This frame will hold a tire up to 26" x 5.05", 27.5" x 4", 29" x 3.0" and a 32" x 2.125.

Love, love, love. I eventually switched the saddle for a KH freeride. I thought the original saddle was too hard. The 170mm cranks were too long, so I replaced them with 138mm. I eventually lowered the tire psi to 8 for better off road handling. It can plow over just about anything with enough practice. I have taken on the beach, in shallow snow, through streams, and off road. It goes over roots, branches, and rocks without any resistance. It looks and handles beautifully!

This is my first uni and I LOVE IT! It is everything I had hoped it would be. Day three and I am up and riding. I had so many people advise me against buying this muni as my first uni because it would be so much harder to learn to ride. Don't let people discourage you. If the muni is what you're interested in riding, then based on personal experience, I can say, go for it.

this uni is amazing it will roll over anything the trail can throw at you and climbs amazingly well and is very light and maneuverable to have such a big tire but after riding this baby I'll never have anything else!

This is the first muni I've purchased, and it is amazing. I have nothing to compare it to, but i think it's safe to assume this is one of the best available. Rides smooth on any terrain, and rolls over fairly large obstacles with ease. The brake is a cool feature. Never ridden a unicycle with a brake before but it definitely opens up new opportunities.

This new Hatchet frame design is awesome. There is no way I could hit my knees on it while riding. I rode the Oregon for a couple of years and have become a huge fan of fat tired unis. The Hatchet frame solves a few of the issues that I had with the Oregon. The Hatchet frame has additional tire clearance and is also very stiff which eliminates tire rub when running a 4.8 inch tire. I also love the disk brake tab on the frame. My brake is now quiet which I was not able to achieve with the D brake adapter on the Oregon. The frame appears to be very solid and well built.
I highly recommend this uni for someone that is ready to move up to fat tire riding.
