Lightweight freestyle/flatland wheelset, for those who demand low weight and the highest performance componentry. Features a double-walled rim, lightweight clear inner tube, Maxxis Grifter tyre and your choice of Nimbus Equinox LT ISIS or Nimbus ISIS hub.
This wheelset was built for the Nimbus Equinox Freestyle unicycle, but can also be used as a flatland wheel. The wide, eyeletted Alex DX2418 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 lower rotating weight Nimbus has specced the very cool, self healing Foss Clear Inner Tube - only 143g.
You have the choice of a very light Nimbus Equinox LT ISIS Hub - only 368 grams - or a stronger Nimbus ISIS Hub. If you mainly ride freestyle the Equinox LT hub is fine. If you mainly ride flatland or are a bit rough on your equipment we suggest a Nimbus ISIS hub. The wheel was carefully handbuilt by Unicycle.co.nz's own wheelbuilder Tony Melton.
14 gauge spokes are used, allowing for easy replacements should you break a spoke.
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.
