I have been looking into the torker DX, but i heard their are some others in the same price range that are “better”.
I am a beginner so not going to spend $650+ CAD for KH, im looking for something that can take a good beating. From other sports like skateboarding, biking, aggressive inline skating etc…, i found that buying something that can take a good solid beating is good to start off with. Just by what people have said the DX seems pretty strong also it looks it, yet people have a problem that it weighs a lot.
If anyone has any shops that sells more that KH unicycles in the Vancouver area (B.C Canada), that would be great.
the Torker DX is really solid, but alot too heavy, for the same price range you can get a Nimbus Trial you can upgrade it with KH Moments cranks but the Venture cranks seem pretty good too. The nimbus is better than the Torker DX, and it is a lot lighter but just a bit heavier than a KH.
I am pretty sure they used to warn at UDC USA that Koxx 1 ISIS was not compatible, but now that I checked, they don’t say anything about moment crank compatibility now.
When did that change ? Regardless, if you buy a dx, new cranks are 100$/pr and you can never use them again on a different uni.
Koxx 1 riders seem to be happy with their rides from what I read. If their cranks are really sorted out good for them.
Koxx 1 and KH seem the best slightly, with Nimbus and Qu-ax strong but a bit heavier. Try to find a sale or good price on those. Right now Qu-ax seems scarce, and the 360 $ KH 07’s are all gone. Koxx 1 had a sale a while ago but I don’t know how that worked out paying freight from France.
KH 570 $ is overpriced now compared to Koxx at Renagade for 400 $.
There isn’t that much difference between them. If you will spend 100 $ to get a lb or so lighter uni, go K1 because of price-weight- strength-standard ISIS.
However, if saving 100 $ now sounds good, the Nimbus uses a lot of the same parts as KH, is strong, and you can swap out the frame easily later to shave a lb. I don’t think it matters much really unless you are a very skilled rider. Until you are whipping it all around, I don’t think you will be able to feel the extra weight of the Nimbus.
