Road unicycles, aka touring unicycles, are designed for travelling long distances at speed. They are equipped with large 29" or 36" wheels which helps them move nice and fast. Road unicycles are used for recreational touring and some people even use them to commute to work. Road unicycles tend to be light weight but strong and have high spec components that can put up with many consecutive hours of riding. Comfy saddles are also a must on road unicycles.
