5' - 7' Nimbus Performer Giraffe - Chrome
Giraffe unicycle designed to take the rigours of professional performance. As standard can be extended upto 7 feet high! We have accessories to go higher, this is a super verstile giraffe.
High audience impact! Taller is better. This giraffe unicycle can be extended from 5 feet tall to 7 feet tall. Designed to be tough enough for performing. Can be rapidly dismantled for ease of transportation. It can be disassembled into four sections which fit into an ordinary suitcase, 26x20x7" (65x50x18cm) - ideal for traveling performers.
The large diameter CrMO frame, chrome plated. Uses quality aluminium quick release clamps for quick assembly and disassembly. The frame sections slot together so that they will not twist nor move independently of each other. To extend from 5' to 7' the quick-release between the pedals and the wheel is undone and the chains removed; an extra section of frame is inserted and the longer chains fitted. Double chain design for equalised tension on the wheel - single chain giraffes can pull the wheel out of alignment with the frame. 2 chains make the unicycle stronger.
