Freestyle, often called artistic freestyle or artistic unicycling, includes four different competitions:

In Artistic Freestyle, riders perform to music, with costumes, props and any kinds of unicycles. Riders are judged not only on skill, but also on how well they entertain and put on a show. There are Individual, Pair, and Group Freestyle events. Group Freestyle includes both Small Group (3-8 riders) and Large Group (9 or more riders) categories.

X-Style is an event for individual riders to show off their most difficult skills. Riders can show their own style with creativity and ingenuity. The competitors are judged solely on the skills that they complete. Performance and falls do not count like they do in other Freestyle competitions.

When planning freestyle routines, please read the page on cultural appropriation.
