Default difrnce between freestyle, trails and street


Trials unicycling – Maneuvering up, down, and/or across obstacles
using hops, drops, and balance moves. The objective in trials is to get
from one challenging place to another in any way possible, without any
fancy tricks involved.

Freestyle: Done on smooth flat ground, the objective is to perform
tricks or skill sets without using any obstcles or props.
(I think the term freestyle is a bit outdated.)

Street: Think of it as BMX or skateboarding on a unicycle. You use
obstacles such as stairs, ledges, curbs, etc. to do tricks. The main
objective is not just to get up or over the obstacle, but to use the
obstacle for the trick.


~Of course, there's some overlap between these types of riding, as
usual. But you get the general idea. Hope that clears things up for you!

Forrest, I think you said Freestyle when you meant Flatland. Freestyle
is "anything goes" and in competition form includes music, costume,
props and entertainment value.

'Read the rules to learn more' (http://unicycling.org/iuf/rulebook/).

Though the rulebook doesn't necessarily explain *why* about things,
it's fairly wordy and tells you exactly what each event requires.

In a nutshell, Trials is as Forrest described; the object is to get
across the terrain, or complete the line, in any way possible. In
Street, the idea is to do cool tricks and combinations, using something
other than flat ground to do it on. Freestyle is an actual performance,
intended for an audience, but still requires a lot of technical
unicycling to be successful in competition.
