Mountain Unicycling with Kris Holm- Winter Sessions



In this episode of The Sound of Winter Sessions, professional mountain unicyclist Kris Holm walks us through his childhood of discovering the unique sport in his life. From pogo stick competitions, to walking on 5ft stilts, Holm was never drawn towards mainstream sports. He was one of the first athletes to take up mountain unicycling professionally, and has had a huge influence on the sport.

Now, as a veteran of mountain unicycling, Holm gives us the low down on his past adventures and the progression of the sport in this episode of The Sound of Winter Sessions:

New Mountain Cycle day? - Learning To Unicycle EP1

Whole Playlist:

If there's one thing I've learned about cycling in general, it's that practicing multiple disciplines makes you a better rider. Even road riding can teach you about energy management and cadence, skills that are very useful in mountain biking. Here on this channel, we've seen first hand how skills learned in BMX and trials can translate well to mountain biking.

I've been thinking a lot about this, and I figured it was time to learn something totally new. What could I try that would force me to learn something radically different?

Say hello to my new, Nimbus Oracle, a 27+ mountain unicycle with a hydraulic disc brake. Talk about overkill. This unicycle is badass.

Now most cyclists have tried a unicycle at some point. That experience usually only lasts a few minutes, during which time there's a lot of falling and no progression. That is an accurate summary of my unicycle experience up until now. I've never owned one, I've never spent considerable time with one, and I most certainly have not learned how to ride a unicycle.

A few weeks back I reached out to Unicycle.com and told them I wanted to learn how to ride. Lucky for me they were already fans of the channel, and were very excited about my idea. Without their help I may have ended up with the unicycle equivalent of a Walmart bike. I think it's more interesting and relevant that we do this on a mountain unicycle because eventually I can take it out on the trails. Even if you have no interest in unicycling, this series at its very core is about learning how to learn.

In this learning to unicycle series, we'll follow my progression from learning to ride, to getting out there in the dirt and mud. Eventually, I hope to do all sorts of sketchy stuff on this thing. I don't know how long this will take, but I'll be practicing every day for 30 minutes until I learn the basics.

I'm excited to learn something new, and experience the breakthrough moments that only a newbie gets to have. I can't wait to see if any of these skills apply to bicycling, or if unicycling is just too different for any shared skill sets to exist. Finally, I'm excited to find out if I'll enjoy unicycling for its own sake. I've heard that it feels really cool.

If you're not so stoked about this new series, you'll be happy to know that I have a lot of other two wheeled stuff in the works. Still, I urge you to stick with me on this, because I promise this is going to be a lot of fun. If you want to learn along with me, dust off that old unicycle in your basement, or head over to Unicycle.com to see what they have to offer. Besides manufacturing a lot of their own stuff, they're just really cool people in general.

As for me, I've got a whole lot of practicing to do.

Thanks for riding with me today, and I'll see you next time.

A North Shore Shred - Extreme Mountain Unicycling 2015

A North Shore Shred
One day, I found myself staring at my camera and realized I didn’t know what my next project would be. A sequel to Atlantis or This Is British Columbia was not possible, and while a KH29er video loomed in the future, I wanted to film something in the meantime. I wanted to film something fun, something fast, and in a less-pressured situation. This edit fits that bill. A North Shore Shred takes place on Pingu and Boogieman, two classic North Shore trails and two trails I grew up riding with the Vancouver Unicycling Club. This edit shows a typical one-wheeled ride on the North Shore for me, and was a lot of fun to make!

Extreme Unicycling - Street, Downhill & Flatland | The Pöham Brothers, Ep. 1



You're about to see something really special - three brothers with half a bike and twice the talent.

Watch them do everything from street trials to downhill unicycling and everything in between, with grace and ease.

Since we are three brothers we have always developed similar interests. In a small village named Oberhofen in Austria-Tirol we started unicycling in 2006 and soon it ran into an extreme direction: riding down a mountain, hitting handrails, and even balancing on a bridge parapet several meters high - this became everyday life.

Having two brothers on your side, who motivate you to do crazy things, contributes a lot to your level of riding.

And they still never thought to use a bicycle...

Athletes: Lorenz, Raphael, and Elias Pöham also known as THE PÖHAM BROTHERS.

First Time on the MTB Trails - Learning to Unicycle EP6

Whole Playlist:

Last month, I got a Nimbus Oracle from unicycle.com. This badass mountain unicycle was in the hands of someone with no clue how to ride it.

Instead of watching the instructional DVD's I took to the tennis courts to figure it out. I fell a bunch of times and ultimately rode like 10 feet. I was learning the hard way.

The next time at the park, I made huge progress and was basically able to ride the thing—in random directions. After another hour of practice I could steer it and sort of go where I wanted to. That day I learned that unicycling is exhausting.

On a rainy day a week later I rode all the way to Riverwalk and crossed a scary main road. This was my first trip through the streets. I learned to free mount that day, which is getting up on the unicycle without support from a fence or a pole. My technique was to push down with my dominant foot, hop into position, and pedal away. This wrong technique is now burned into my brain.

I messed around in the park some more and rode home in the rain. I was ready to step it up.

Eager to take my unicycle off-road, I visited a nature path at Birch State Park. The path was windy and unstable with some low branches, but nothing like a real mountain bike trail. Ultimately I made it up this incline and through these roots. In 90 degree heat with no water, I almost vomited, and deserved it for not hydrating. I rode back to the car, which felt really far away, and downed melted iced coffee.

And here's the part you didn't see. Friday evening, I rode all the way to James's house 2 miles away. I had to free mount multiple times, and ride much further than I ever had before. Surprisingly I made it with relative ease. Two miles would have been unthinkable just a week before. I did need to squeeze between these two cars, which could have ended in property damage.

And here I am, Sunday morning at Oleta River State Park, to attempt a real bike trail. This is what I've been training for all this time. Roots, rocks, and wooden platforms all look bigger when you only have one wheel.

Alright, here goes! I've ridden a unicycle about 10 times now in total, so it feels really good to be out on the trails this soon. Turning quickly is still the hardest part, followed by inclines, but just riding along an uneven surface trips me up from time to time.

This platform might just be the most difficult obstacle I've braved yet.

Riding a unicycle is now muscle memory. I could put it down for a week and pick up right where I left off. As a cyclist, it'll be interesting to see if the unicycle has helped me in other areas. Can I wheelie a fixie forever now? Has my precision on a normal mountain bike improved? Only time will tell.

Every day I get messages from fans. While it's impossible to answer every one, I have noticed a lot of people asking if they're too old to start mountain biking. The answer to that would be a resounding No. If unicycling were bicycling, I just learned to ride a two wheeler a few weeks ago. Now, I'm learning to ride mountain bike trails.

Thanks for riding with me today, and I'll see you next time.
