Is the Nimbus 24" Muni a good choice for an upgrade?

At the moment, I have a cheap unicycle from ebay and am looking to uprgade as I want to do some offroading. I am quite good a unicycling but am not really good enough yet to be spending £400 on a unicycle.

So I am thinking of getting a Nimbus 24" Muni and am wondering of this is a good choice for a first upgrade.

Thanks everyone!

which uni and when

Its 6mths later what did you choose? I too have been learning with 2 very cheap unicycles (20 & 24 - $50au each) and am wondering whether a quality uni will help me improve faster. I've been riding for 4 weeks and I am at the stage where I can ride uneaven trails & small smooth areas. I cant idle or ride backwards yet. My 20 is a bit better quality than my 24 and I enjoy it more, this makes me think that getting a quality uni might be a good idea. But which 24" Muni to choose Torker, Qu-ax or Nimbus and should I put a few more months in on the cheapys?

Welcome to the forum.

If your Uni is not broken or bent its not holding you back. Will you enjoy a nicer Uni, yes, need it no.

With the one exception of that if your seat keeps you from riding longer a better seat will help that and that is excuse enough to get a new uni.

I'd say a put a few more months on the cheapys and see which type of riding you are drawn towards. Beat those cheapys up for a few more months. You are going to drop those Unis a lot learning to idle and ride backwards. Use that 20" to learn both of those skills.
