It should work, but it was designed as a freestyle uni. the rim is not as wide or strong as the muni rim, it uses a 22.2 mm seatpost, and the frame may only allow for a 2.5 tire. Still an insane value for the money!
I’d say go for it! My first muni was a torker lx, and this would be a definite step up from that
With the double wall rim and isis tech, could this be used for hopping up and down curbs, rocks, etc? Not major big drops just stairs and such? I’m thinking of it for my almost son-in-law. Would I be better off getting him a trials uni, though he likes the 24".
There were lots of lower end trials unicycles sold with square taper hubs. I have one.
Not that we have that out of the way back to the unicycle in question.
The Nimbus X 24 is sort of an oddball sort of unicycle. A skinny 24 with ISIS. All the parts that would make it great for some don’t really make it that great for others.
ISIS hub: much better interface between hub and cranks, only downside is the lack of short cranks for freestylers.
22.2mm seatpost: lets you have lots of surface on crown for foot on crown tricks (good for freestyle) but is much weaker and prone to braking.
48 spokes: Makes a very strong wheel but is harder to find replacement parts for. Not a big deal as you are unlikely to break the rim or hub. also adds a bit of weight which the gram counters don’t like.
Now my opinion is that this would be a great unicycle for something like uni-hockey or basketball and one hell of a learner unicycle. I think the thin seatpost is its only real weakness. If you want to get into MUni it does not come close to a dedicated Mountain Unicycle with a 3" tire but should let you at least allow you to hit the trails without it crumbling beneath you.
