Probably the Roger Davies carbons. I don’t know the weight of mine offhand, but because it has a Suzue hub, “normal” alloy cranks and other lightweight parts, it’s way lighter than a KH. Mine has a suspension seat post on it, which adds a little weight though it’s also aluminum.
Problem with the lightest MUni? At least in my case, it doesn’t fit wide tires. I think I have a 2.1" tire on there now. A 2.6" would never fit. In other words, light isn’t everything…
Yeah, I used to care about weight alot. Over the last year it seems Ive been making my uni heavier. I dont even think about weight anymore. I just put the strongest best parts on that I can find. I dont care if they weigh alot. Its a muni, so the more weight makes it feel like a tank! And it rides like one aswell. Go anywhere and do anything. Well…almost. I may look into a LM rim next. My uni weight 16.5 lbs as it is. Its a 26" though. So with a LM rim it’ll probably weight 17.5 lbs.
Yea, I think I will probably slowly make my uni heavier as I upgrade parts, though I really like the weight of it at the moment. I find it much better than the Qu-Ax muni. The extra few kilo’s really keep you stuck to the track making it harder to hop, but the bigger tire makes it easier to roll over logs.
I used to want to get a LM rim but not so much anymore, I like how it makes the tire really flat giving you more traction and bounce. I have never used or even seen one so I dont know what it would be like, but I can’t imagine it being much better than say a KH rim that is 47mm wide.
Lightest would prolly be some custom made one out there that some hobbit mountain unicyclist will never part with…my precious…my precious…Yours is a pretty good weight. The stock KH mountain 24in is 7.05 kg, and the Koxx-one Track monster 24in is 6.89 kg So just over 6kg is not too bad at all.
That uni came stock as 6.5kg im pretty sure, its the cross country version. The pedals are a fair bit lighter than the snafus, the tire is 2.6" wide, the seat post has also being cut down about 8cm, and I don’t think it makes that much of a difference but the tube is also lighter than the one it came with.
Yes with Carbon Plate you can save a lot of weight.
My unicycle has a 3 "tire. You can save a lot of weight with:
[B]rim (I use WTB Scraper) [/B]
[B]inner tube (many unicycle manufacturers use horrible inner tubes), [/B]
[B]carbon plate (not on my unicycle)[/B]
My unicycle is made from standard components, no special things. I therefore claim that it is the lightest (standard) 27.5+ MUni worldwide. (aviable in a shop)
Click on the picture of the unicycle. It is linked to my shop. There I have listed all components individually. Many small weight savings add up to one big saving
It could be made much lighter under 4.5kg. I do not understand why unicycle saddles (without carbon plate) have to weigh 800g. Half should be possible. Of course there would be the possibility to mount a 200g bike saddle with light seatpost- Then we would approach the 4.0 kg limit. With a carbon rim we would be near from 4.0kg.
