Lightweight freestyle/flatland wheelset, for those who demand low weight and the highest performance componentry. Features a drilled-out rim, Nimbus Equinox LT ISIS hub and Maxxis Grifter tyre.
This wheelset was built for the Nimbus Equinox Freestyle unicycle, but can also be used as a flatland wheel. The wide KH 20" Flatland Rim spreads out the Maxxis Grifter tyre wide, giving you a larger, more stable contact patch with the ground. At only 440 grams, the Grifter tyre is one of the lightest 20" tyres you can get and has a good tread pattern for unicycling. For low rotating weight Nimbus has specced the very cool, self healing Foss Clear Inner Tube - only 143g.
The very light Nimbus Equinox LT ISIS Hub is at the centre of this wheelset - only 368 grams! The wheel was carefully handbuilt by Unicycle.co.nz's own Tony Melton.
14 gauge spokes are used, allowing for easy replacements should you break a spoke.
Cranks sold separately.
Note: this wheelset fits frames with 42mm diameter bearing holders, such as KH frames and Nimbus II ISIS frames. You can also fit it in a Nimbus 20" unicrown frame, as found on the Axis 20" and Hoppley 20" unicycles.
