The KH36 is a top quality unicycle designed for on and off-road riding over longer distances. The large wheel diameter provides stability at high speeds and an external disc brake gives secure stopping power. An abundant use of one-piece forged components ensures high strength and durability.
Most of the world's speed records have been established on a geared KH36, including the current 10 km and 24 km world records held by Kris Holm team rider Scott Wilton. This is the unicycle that can truly replace a bike for road riding.

I had it for over 3 months and over 200 miles now.
Great quality, great look, very light (almost as light as my old 26" Pashley muni despite the bigger wheel and brake), yet looks and feels very sturdy. No issue so far except maybe a small occasional very high pitch noise around the bearing I'm not too sure what to think about.
The fusion zero saddle is still painful to me. It's good that you can adjust the slant of it as some positions are unbearable to me, but even on the least bad position, I can't ride it more than 20 miles in a row.
I can see and feel the slim design being a clear improvement for stunts or muni, but for road where you mostly sit, the fusion freeride is a lot better IMO.
Now a lot of people love it so it may be only me.

Every aspect of this unicycle is amazing; stiff frame, awesome wheel, versatile tire, sweet cranks, and a comfy saddle are only a few of the things that make this such a sweet uni. I have been commuting 10 to 15 miles a day on this thing since I bought it and I am thrilled by how much fun I'm having by bombing around town both off and on road. This is really one of those cases when you "get what you pay for" and I'm happy to say that it is money well spent.
Thanks Unicycle.com for the awesome customer service. (Posted on 17/06/2015)
I am relatively new to unicycling and bought this unicycle after riding about 2 months
on a 24" Uni and about a months on a 29" Uni. Like everyone else I debated
whether to buy a 29" or a 36" as my next step-up.
One factor was whether I am tall enough for a 36". It is the resolution of this consideration that I mainly want to pass on to potential buyers, not so much to
review this unicycle's quality in detail. My inseam is 30" ( basically wear pants
with inseam 30"). I thought I could ride this UNI initially with 165mm cranks because
I wanted more torque and not so much speed to start with. Wrong! I could not
reach the pedals with 165mm. Fortunately switching pedals to the 137mm holes
allowed me to ride it but that was too high a gear ratio. So, I ended up re-ordering
the default 150mm/127mm cranks. I also was losing about an inch on the seat post adjustable "ring" that comes with the default seat post. Nice design but it costs 1" in extra height. I ordered the other KH seat post which is not adjustable but has the same 27.2mm shaft diameter and cut it short with a hack saw( to about 4" shaft length). Without the "ring" that was on top of the original seat post which is used for pitch adjustment of the seat I gained another 1" of badly needed height. With the 150mm cranks and the non-adjustable seat post it is a perfect fit for my height. So, those of you who are about my height you might want to do some calculation before ordering.
The UNI itself rides like a Cadillac, so smooth but of course with more inertia
compared to a 29" so turns are slower and wider initially until you learn how to adjust for it. For long distance riding either a 36" or a geared 29" is the only way to go. I think that mounting a 36" in some ways is easier than mounting a 24" because for an average weight person the 36-er doesn't roll back with right foot pushing too much on the right pedal at the time of mounting due to high wheel inertia. So for walk-mount or jump-mount the 36 is easier than the 24 or 29.
But also it is a much higher height to push up for a short person ( 5'7" in my case).
After about half an hour of feeling vertigo on your first ride you get used to the
extra height. I also added a set of cushy Dr. Scholl's in-soles to my shoes to soften up those unwanted descents from up there to tierra firma.
Overal I am happy with the quality of the product. It is very solid with nice contours that makes it look slimmer than some other brand UNI's I have seen. I like the slim but solid look. I wish KH would offer at least one more color option like orange or something a bit brighter. The dark blue is just too boring. I especially like the design of the cranks with two holes and the option to add a disk brake which I opted to have. (Posted on 17/06/2015)
I just got my new KH 36 and they did a nice job on the engineering. I
had a 36 before in the £300 range before which I rode 2 miles per week for 2 years and it just didn't hold up. Everything on this one is precise with no flex and it should last a long time. (Posted on 17/06/2015)
