The KH36 is a top quality unicycle designed for on and off-road riding over longer distances. The large wheel diameter provides stability at high speeds and an external disc brake gives secure stopping power. An abundant use of one-piece forged components ensures high strength and durability.

Most of the world's speed records have been established on a geared KH36 including the current 10 km and 24 km world records by team rider Scott Wilton. This is the unicycle that can truly replace a bike for road riding.

Highlights include

  • One-piece forged, 7005 alloy frame crown and neck for high strength without bulk
  • Slim (93 mm) crown and stiff fork blades
  • New one-piece forged CrMo Spirit hub for strength and reliability
  • One-piece forged CrMo Spirit hub for strength and reliability
  • External Disc Brake for high wheel strength and ease of maintenance and 180 mm rotor are now included standard
  • Fusion Zero saddle for bike-like saddle performance with a one-piece forged Pivotal seatpost for high strength and easy adjustability
  • Reduced weight Nimbus Nightrider 36 x 2.25 inch tire (1750 g)
  • Compatible with KH/Schlumpf geared hub (not included)

This unicycle features a Fusion Zero saddle, a fundamentally new approach to unicycle saddle design. Correct setup is important! We recommend adding a T-bar handle for most riders (not included). Click here for more information on the saddle and click here for an important setup guide.

Out of the box this unicycle comes equipped with carefully chosen component choices that balance the needs for the majority of riders.

Note: minimum leg length may be reduced by 25+ mm by selecting different components, such as a slimmer saddle model and non-adjustable seatpost (to reduce saddle height), and shorter cranks (to raise the lowest point of the crank rotation). Advanced users may also shorten the frame seatpost tube by up to 25 mm. Note that frame modifications void the KH warranty.
