Testing for levels
•In order to pass a level you must be tested by a certified level tester.
•You are allowed to switch out specific parts on your unicycle, such as rolo discs, as well as switching the unicycle entirely for different tricks so long as the wheel sizes are between 19” and 24”.
•You may only test for each level once per day. You may pass any amount of levels in one day.
•If the rider fails the attempted trick/combo and exceeds the amount of faults allowed, they may still complete the level by landing enough of the remaining skills.
•Spin tricks may begin in any seat orientation. Flip tricks must begin riding seat forwards unless otherwise specified.

Important terms to remember
•Blind – Spinning the unicycle the opposite direction you prefer.
•Switch – Changing your foot orientation.
•Fakie – Starting the trick riding backwards.
•Spin – Turning the unicycle around its vertical axis.
•Twist – Turning your body in the air while still on the unicycle.
•Flip – Moving the cranks with your feet off of the pedals.
•Push – Moving the unicycle by applying force to the tire with your foot.
•Inward – Twisting your body 180° into the spin. Ex. spinning the unicycle to the right and twisting your body to the right.

Important techniques to remember
•Twists – In general, most people twist away from their front foot
•Spins – In general, most people spin into their front foot

Other important information
•10 meters is roughly 6.5 revolutions
•Up means you begin hopping on the cranks or pedals, and you complete the trick by hopping up to the wheel
•Down means you begin hopping on the tire, and you complete the trick by hopping down to your cranks or pedals
