I guess some of you have already seen on Facebook, but I have not seen any discussion on Unicyclist.com… Impact have a new version of the Gravity coming out. They have releasing a few shots of it and given a few details of it’s construction. It should be with us before UNICON.
The frame will be the first production hydroformed unicycle frame with smooth welding; this makes it stiff, light and beautiful. The material will be 6061 T6 aluminium.
Sorry, you may not get the result you want when you anodize these frames. Filler welding that gives you the nice smooth look is a different composition to the main tubes and hence will give different resultant colour when anodizing.
It wont be long. There is more information being released about the new frames. The frame/hub will have 4 bearings, not 2! This will make the frame considerably stiffer and responsive. They are also lighter!
I will see if I can get a close up for you… it is backwards compatible.
When you buy a frame it will come with the bearings and you only have to fit a 2mm smaller external bearing spacer. It has been tested on all the common ISIS hubs and seams to work fine on all of them so far.
