New Unicycles

Our new line of Nimbus unicycles!

With the New York City Unicycle Festival fast approaching, we thought this would be a good time to revamp our lineup of one-wheeled options. Dubé Juggling is proud to announce our new line of Nimbus unicycles! But first, a brief history…

The modern unicycle was born from the penny-farthing bicycle sometime during the late 1800s. Penny-farthings were a very difficult and extremely dangerous. The rider would sit high atop an over-sized front wheel, and iff the penny-farthing were to slow down or stop suddenly, the rider would often flip over the handlebars, leading to devastating injuries. Along the line, someone realized that the rear wheel didn’t serve much of a purpose, and removed it altogether. Thus, the modern unicycle was born.

For many years after, unicycling was considered the realm of circus performers, clowns, vaudevillians and carnies. In recent years, however, the unicycle community has expanded. Sports and activities such as mountain unicycling (mUni), trials (similar to BMX), unicycle basketball and distance riding have all attracted a dedicated and diverse following.

In recognition of unicycling’s growing popularity, Dubé Juggling is proud to announce an expanded line of unicycles. The Nimbus Club is an excellent and affordable option for beginners. Our new Nimbus II unicycles are a durable option for beginner and intermediate unicyclists alike. The Nimbus Signature Trials is super rugged ride designed for extreme cycling, but is also a good option for any intermediate to advanced cyclist. Finally, the Performer Convertible Giraffe Unicycle is the perfect unicycle for the variety performer on the go.
