IN THE STIFFNESS
We could give you all the technical details (shapes, thicknesses, etc.) that prove this statement. Here we simply tell you that up to now we haven't seen a broken IRON-MAD or Power Square frame! However if you are interested to read more about our frames please read here: the MAD-frames.
IN THE QUALITY
of the material used. For the steel version we did not choose the commonly used steel alloy, we decided to build our frames with a quality steel, the CrMo-4130. The same happened with the aluminum version. The classic AL-6061-T6 was not enough. We decided for a more innovative aluminum alloy with higher properties, the AA-6069-T6.
IN THE DESIGN OF THE CROWN
in Stand-Up you must rely on a sufficiently wide and safe flat base, for a better feeling and balance (the foot must not slip off). The stand-up and coasting tricks will be then much easier for you. We have taken into consideration this important aspect also in the development of the Iron-Mad, that has been designed with a large crown and two drilled holes machined from solid (the MAD-Geko grip system), that offer great anti-slip grip. The starting point for the current version of the Iron-Mad and the Mad-Freestyle are all the successful experiences we have gathered and further improved since 2013, when we started developing our unicycles for freestyle. Many freestylers consider our MAD-Freestyles the best ever.
IN THE RIM
In all the 3 Setups of the Iron-Mad we offer 2 types of rims. In the standard set-up we have a 32mm single-wall aluminum rim with 36 spokes. With a small surcharge we mount the MAD-Round 32. The MAD-Round is the best option. It is super light and strong, resistant to any use of the wheel, even extremely intensive such as the ones related to flatland.
