THE NEW CRANKS BY MAD4ONE, LIGHTNESS & STIFFNESS, A PERFECT

ASSOCIATION ....

 

  

These cranks come from the MAD-Tecno Project, therefore made of ERGAL AL7075-T6 (the Aluminium alloy that offers the highest strength), forged and optimized in shape with CNC machinery to offer lightness (-30% compared to the MAD-Tecno). 

We tried to reduce as much as possible the Q-Factor and we succeeded :)

In fact, the AGILE are narrower than the ISIS-standards. Their Q-Factor (the distance between the outside of one crankarm to the outside of the other crankarm measured at the points of the threaded portion where the pedal axle attaches) has been reduced by 3mm per side, i.e. a total of 6mm.
 

The PLUSES of the project AGILE ?   STIFFNESS and LIGHTNESS.

 


We have developed 4 Models.

  • AGILE 125mm for RACE
  • AGILE 135mm for TRIAL
  • AGILE with 2 holes (110-130mm) for STREET
  • AGILE with 3 holes (117-138-159mm) for MUNI.

All aluminum parts developed by Mad4One, and therefore also the cranks AGILE, are anodized in the 13 different made in Italy colors.

Katrine Jensen and Ryan Olfers

 

Hi, my name is Katrine Jensen and I am former double World Champion in individual freestyle and X-style.
 

I ride Mad4One freestyle with a 100mm bearing pitch.

I find a wider bearing pitch better for most of the tricks
I love to do, such as ww, st.up, hand riding, hand ww and so on, all tricks that have a centered balance while riding straight.

 

On the other hand, we have Ryan Olfers, also former World Champion in individual freestyle.
Ryan prefers tricks with a less straight balance point, like spins, side ride
and side saddle and a Mad4One freestyle with a 90mm bearing pitch.

 

My conclusion is that the more narrow the bearing pitch is, the easier does the unicycle turn.

That can be an advantage or a disadvantage, depending on your riding style.
 

We hope you enjoy our video!

The MAD-RACE,  What's New as regards RACE

 

Contrary to the bicycle, the unicycle has only one point of contact with the ground, so when we push on the pedals, the force we apply on them makes the wheel spin around the hub, but at the same time it also pushes sideways towards the point where the unicycle contacts the ground.
This produces the classic side-to-side oscillations of the unicycle, which is the number one enemy of high speed.
The oscillation generated by our pedaling can be reduced by reducing the distance of the pedals from the center.
This is the reason why if we want to have a high performing Race unicycle the distance between the pedals must be as much as possible narrow.
 
We have worked on the weight distribution, reduced as much as possible the distance between pedals thanks to our 85mm hub, we have optimized both cranks and interface connecting cranks- hub, we have achieved a high level of stiffness of both frame and wheel, and now ...
 
here the 3 Setup del MAD-RACE that we now produce both in 24" and 26"
with frame in Aluminum Alloy AA6069-T6, 85mm-hub, 36- or 32-spokes wheel.

We had in mind 12 interviews, 12 months about 12 Super Riders .......

 

An opportunity to share their passion, to understand how they live this sport and what this sport is giving them.

A couple of pages that give us the chance to know these athletes even if we do not practice their discipline.
Their strength, their passion, their tenacity is an example for all of us.

It is important to know that these Riders exist, that they are boys and girls like us, who have given life to their dreams.

Today, 31st December 2018 we have met Florian Rabensteiner.
