We are proud to announce the release of a major new update to the KH range of products.
Kris has introduced a new hub and brake format for the 2023 season. Gone is the Spirit (and moment) cranks with their external disc and ISIS interface. In comes a splined interface with a more traditional internal disc brake with the range name of "Boundary".
Boundary cranks are the latest offering from Kris Holm to enable the highest possible strength to weight ratio and pedal performance in a unicycle hub.
Boundary cranks are constructed from tough, stiff 7050 alloy for all types of riding, Boundary Cranks use the Q-Axle micro-spline standard for maximum strength and stiffness. The Q-axle micro spine is parallel (not tapered) and secures with pinch-bolts on the crank. This makes it easy to install and remove, without the wear and tear of a tapered spline interface. Boundary cranks are angled outwards by 8 mm (Q-factor), which maintains a slim profile with just enough clearance to avoid bruised ankle bones. For geared, KH/Schlumpf hub riders, the crank shape is configured to enable easy shifting and avoid accidental shifts. The Boundary crank comes with two pedal hole options to suit different riding conditions and rider preferences. Compatible with Q-Axle hubs including the Kris Holm Boundary hub.
Available lengths: 110/127 mm (373 g), 117/137 mm (414 g), 127/150 mm (444 g)
The Boundary hub uses the Q-Axle micro spine, which has a larger (24mm) diameter compared to the ISIS-typical 22mm, enabling high strength at 33% lower weight than the KH Spirit hub. Cranks are fixed by tightening two bolts on the crank, which makes them easy to install and remove without wear-and-tear on the splines. Available in disc-mount and standard models, with a 42 mm bearing and 100-mm bearing-bearing spacing.
This update has been long awaited and other than the new hub and cranks, the new range will be familiar to everyone with it's emphasis on quality and riding experience. The only other things of note is that the unicycles come fitted with 203 rotors as standard and that the 36" in mainland Europe will be supplied with the King George tyre and a QuAx rim rather than the Dominator 2.
Are you comfortable with mounting your unicycle and riding it forward?
The next step is to try out some of these tricks and skills.
Knowing how to perform some of these will open the door to more advanced tricks and riding.
A blog by Julian Page, enjoy!
I thought i would submit a blog celebrating my 26” Oracle Unicycles 10th Birthday, it remains my favourite unicycle to ride. It has completed 1170 miles over 290 rides, mostly in the North West of England. A couple of years ago it had a new hub, as the metal around the holes for two spokes broke free and had a new tyre and bearings. Otherwise it looks after itself.
Juggling a three ball cascade is a fantastic basic skill to learn and one that everyone can do.
Roger has put a video together to help you learn how to juggle. He follows the instructions supplied with the Unicycle.com Juggling ball sets. Some people find juggling easy and others find it hard. Roger is definitely in that second category, but he has been learning for a long time! This does make him an excellent teacher. In the video he gives you a good structure to learn and also highlights many of the common mistakes people make when learning.
