Ever wanted gears on your unicycle? This ISIS hub from Schlumpf Innovations and Kris Holm Unicycles is the answer and the very latest in geared unicycle technology. * New improved model! *
Lovingly crafted in the Swiss Alps, this new ISIS hub has been torture-tested by muni legend Kris Holm himself. Now geared offroad unicycles are a reality!
The latest generation of geared Schlumpf unicycle hubs is a massive improvement on previous models. Gone is the pesky torque arm, and even better the axle is now ISIS with a beefier bearing setup. This means that Schlumpf hubs are strong enough to be ridden offroad! Schlumpf Innovations teamed up with Kris Holm Unicycles for this project and designed the new hub around Kris Holm unicycle frames. New larger internal bearings improve performance.
Two ratios: 1:1 and 1:1.55. 1:1 is the same as a standard unicycle - the wheel turns one revolution with every revolution of the pedals. In high gear (1:1.55 ratio) the wheel turns 1.55 times with every turn of the pedals. This means a 24" wheel in high gear is effectively a 37.2" wheel; a 26" in high gear is effectively a 40.3" wheel; a 29" in high gear is effectively a 45" wheel and a 36" in high gear is effectively a 55.8" wheel!

I ordered the unicycle at about 10.30am one day and it arrived at my door on Auckland's North Shore at 8.30am the next day. I'm not sure that's even possible, but it happened! Having never owned a uni cycle before I didn't know what to expect, but it soon became apparent why it looks so robust, because it needs to be. I've spent about three and a half hours on it so far and making good progress, although I'm not entirely in control of where I'm going yet. But I'm very happy with the product and the information that was supplied with it. It's the complete package for a beginner. Thank you. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you (I already have) to others. Brucemore...
