Riders and Dealers
QU-AX Team Riders
Our team riders and our dealers are an important part of our product development. In the beginning, we only sponsored only young, hopeful riders who sometimes could not afford the sport. Out of this, long partnerships were established, new partners joined – and our sponsoring changed over the years. By now, our team-riders rather represent the unicycle spirit and lifestyle rather than pure competition results – they represent it on social-media, events, competitions and meetings.
Since many years we work with unicycle riders of various disciplines to develop products – or to refine them. This is how the Profi BB, the QU-AX King George 36″ tire, the Q-handle, our gusset seatpost and finally #rgb-series were born. Some examples:
One of our first team-riders – and part of QU-AX since the early beginnings. Loves adventures, tours, treks, we appreciate his photos, videos, trip-reports – but especially his ideas, opinions and testings over the years. Rocco rode many types of unicycling already – Freestyle, Track, Trial, Street, High- and Widthjump – but essentially: Muni.
Our Hardcore-Tester in terms of durability and resistance. Many parts are now labeled “Paul-proof”. It is over ten years ago we met at ODM in Dresden, Paul was already riding his QU-AX Muni with the legendary multi-spline axle (kind of a Q-Axle proto) for years – and would still continue to – since then, many incredible photos and videos brought us together and Paul is often risking his own health to test stuff – or to get the best ever photo.
One of his best videos is the one he dedicated his home-country:
Florian Kaiser convinced us by great photos he provided us before we ever sponsored him. His crazy Iceland crossing – all alone – including his video about it is legendary – see it below. During the Eurobike that summer, he showed his knowledge to visitors and reported visitors about his trip. Flo is still ambitious – unicycling – photographer
Berry is one of the youngest team-members – but here too, his awesome photos got our attention – he is also working in a technical sector and engineered the first Zero-Q-Axle Rollo Disc prototype. Qualified feedback from Berry helped a lot too for the development of #rgb components.
Nicolas video down the Mont Royal in Canada catched our attention – an incredibly flowy riding style on a 24″ with fat drops. He also already made nice videos in Utah before – also from a filming point of view – now he shreds the trails on a 27,5″ #rgb muni – keen to see what’s to come!
Rebekka Wiedener, Becky
We saw Becky on many events with her great and versatile riding style, now, she is also riding a 27,5″ #rgb. She was worl champion in uphill until 2018 – which gave her her nickname “Becky the mountain goat” and did the Arizona Trail unipacked (Video) – we are keen to see her next adventures!
Our dealers are our direct line to you. They give us qualified feedback and returns about your wishes, improvement-suggestions to our products.
PETRA AND ROLAND WENDE MUNICYCLE.COM
They were one of our first customers in the early beginning of QU-AX and also became a massive part of the unicycling-scene in Germany – most German customers know them – and they know most German unicyclist – having been at so many competitions and conventions. A permanent contact with them in all these years – in discussions, phone-calls or emails, transporting their and your experience helped and helps us still. Thank you.
GEORGE – JUGGLINGSHOP.CO.KR
George is Long-Distance rider and commuter – he help us design the variable QU-AX Q-Handle and QU-AX 36″ King George tire which is now also spec’d on the Kris Holm 36″ unicycle.
