I am wondering what The best trials unicycle I can get for around $300 I want to get my moneys worth and want something that will last I like to go off drop offs and want a unicycle that can handle 4-5ft drop offs I am also just starting to get into unispins and such and would like to try trials. If you have a good trials unicycle that can do this and got it for around $300 let me know because I would like to buy a new one for about that price.
I’d go with Nimbus with KH moment cranks. They are really strong. I dont where you’ve heard about easily breaking Nimbus unis because pretty much everyone is really satified with Nimbus unis. They are really good unis.
I have a nimbus with ventures and they are doing me good, the biggest drop ive done would be around 4ft, so you could just get the nimbus cranks that come on them and upgrade later. Depends how good you are i suppose.
I don’t have much experience with the Moments but the Ventures on my freestyle uni seemed to be scraped relatively easily during a couple unplanned crank grabs on concrete. They are both 7075 T-6 aluminium but my guess is that the Moments are cold-forged which would make them stronger and give them a harder finish. The Moments also have the steel pedal inserts so you won’t likely damage the threads.
Also note that the Ventures only come in 125mm while the Moments come in either 125mm or 137mm. For pure trials I would recommend 137’s but that’s preference.
If you plan to use the unicycle heavily for a long time I think it is worth the price, you are actually getting improved long-term reliability for the money. However the Ventures may last you just as long (like all ISIS cranks Moments aren’t immune to interface wear), so I really wouldn’t worry about it after you make the decision.
