Weight difference - KH20 vs. Summit 20

According to unicycle.com the summit trials uni is 12 ounces heavier then the KH20. I was wondering where all that weight is. The only real differences between the two that I can see are the seat and the frame.


Summit Trials

Another thing that struck me as odd, was that the KH20 uses 40mm bearing, and the Summit uses 41mm bearings. I assume that this means you can’t use a KH hub (with stock bearings) in a Summit frame. Am I wrong?

look at the fork legs… the summit’s legs seem to be unnecessarily fat.


Re: Re: Weight difference - KH20 vs. Summit 20

yep the Summit legs are rectanguar,he KH legs are round…thats a pound right there…

Re: Weight difference - KH20 vs. Summit 20

its the exact same hub in the new kh unis and the summit, however the kh pro frame is designed for the profile hub.

the kh hub also fits a nimbuss ii/yuni frame
desptie the fact that the bearings are a diferent size from the frame.

you can use a profile hub in a new style kh frame by using shims, aparently these shims might be available at unicycle.com

and you can’t put a kh hub in the kh pro frame(not that you’d want to.)

The Summit was an older prototype for the KH frame that the factory decided to sell on the side. The main reason I asked them to change to the current KH fork blade tubing was because of the weight, and because the KH tubing is slightly slimmer which reduces the overall fork width.
