Nimbus Unicycles claims that their new mUNI-X Enduro unicycle retains all the best features of previous models, but with slacker geometry to better accommodate the rugged terrain and blazingly fast speeds of modern unicycle enduro racing.
The top-end 29er is an updated version of their successful mUNI model, building on 20 years of experience as the premier house brand of unicycle.com
. This mountain unicycle comes ready to rally, with a strong aluminum rim, stainless steel black spokes with red nipples, and Nimbus branded pedals featuring a tough Chromoly axle and steel pins.

While conventional unicycles come with a standard 90° main-tube angle, the mUNI-X uses a 78° main-tube angle to achieve what they say is ride stability that pushes the boundaries of what's possible on one wheel.
The mUNI-X Enduro comes standard with a 300mm seatpost, but is available with a 200mm seatpost to accommodate shorter legs for an extra $25. Nimbus also offers a variety of crank styles and lengths, including a set of robust DH-specific cranks. The last customization option is the addition of a Giro Fixture MIPS helmet, which goes to show that Nimbus recognizes the enduro model's high-speed capability.
