Nimbus Gel or Kris holm fusion?

Post by suckawat » Mon, 13 Nov 2006 09:06:06


Whats the better seat for trials. The Kris holm street or the Nimbus gel
seat. I need comfortable seat because although i'm a trials rider i do
some long distance too.

Nimbus Gel or Kris holm fusion?

Post by gordito8m » Mon, 13 Nov 2006 09:58:08

I've never ridden the nimbus but I have ridden the kris holm. Depending
on what kind of riding you're doing they both have their ups and downs.
If you're doing longer distances then the kris holm probably isn't a
great choice. If you're doing alot of trials and street the the kh is
definately the way to go. It's really easy to get to seat in front and
doesn't chafe at all when getting use to it. The Kh doesn't have too
much cushion on it so longer rides wouldn't be great. But I also heard
that the Kh freeride is good for trials and stuff too. Over all I would
probably suggest the kris holm but then again I've never ridden the
nimbus. good luck

I was under the impression that they are pretty much identical.
However, I know the KH will be flexy, and I assume the Nimbus will be
as well.  If I were you I'd get a Viscount and attach a better handle
to it with self-tapping metal screws.

the KH is much better. There is similar padding, but the KH has a fusion
cover which is a major +. it is also flatter, which is tons better for
riding, unispins, and seat out, and it is comfier(for me). However,
they both kindof suck for distance.

it's removable, doesn't tear as easy, is comfier for seat out and leg
wraps, and has kevlar on the front as well as the back.

Nimbus Gel or Kris holm fusion?

Post by hungry4un » Sun, 14 Dec 2008 07:59:47

Sorry for bringing back an old thread, but I've been riding on my nimbus
gel for about a year now. It's in good condition. The only downside is
it's a bit ripped. I've been wanting a KH street saddle, and when I saw
it on UDC for $20 off, I bought it.

I do 90% trials. I say 90 because I do like street and flat. The only
distance I do is to school. 1-2 miles away.

Was this purchase a good choice?

Why wouldn't it be a good purchase??
With this purchase you just upgraded your uni. With this saddle you
will be able to get a CF base when you start fliping.
I just changed my broken nimbus gel for the kh fusion and with CF base
and I'm really enjoying it, much better than the old nimbus. It is
comfier for spins :D

I would also say it was a good choice. My little brother got a Nimbus
gel seat for his trials and I have a KH Street. We've tried each and
compared. We both agree that the KH feels much better and I feel that
the less curve (up at the front) it has  feels better.

I think that the nimbus foam is much better than the kh foam. What I
want to do is use a nimbus foam from one of my broken seats and a in
cover because they are removable and get a cf base for it.

Are you saying you like the design of the KH, but you like the comfort
of the Nimbus?

It sounded to me like you wanted to take your nimbus foam and insert it
with your KH seat. Am I right?

The KH fusion street is realy uncomftable and will make you go numb
pretty quick. The nimbus saddle is quite a bit more compftable. The KH
has a removeable cover which is realy good, so you can easily fit a cf
base so your seat isnt all bendy and *** like.

If you want to ride it places as well as riding trials, get the fusion
freeride saddle which is more compftable than the fusion street and has
a removeable cover so you can throw away that bendy bit of plastic and
get some nice cf. Its a bit thicker than the fusion street but its still
pretty nice SIF.

You have never taken a seat apart?????

If your foam is cracked and grubby looking like mine it will look
pretty rubbish. And the foam will fall off all the time.
