Sale price€32.95


Inspired by classic Tour De France chronicles, this stunning model embodies the spirit of competition, the great sport and even a greater victory. The signature Ugears design makes the Cyclist a fun build and an original décor piece in any home or office space.

We bet you will like the appearance of our champion, but the coolest feature is of course, its mechanism. Ugears is famous for their original approach to wooden mechanical models and this time our design wizards used a simple flywheel to create their magic. Start it by pulling the lever on the side of the model and watch the cyclist launch into a race. The flywheel, the main propelling element of the model, accumulates kinetic energy due to its weight. The model is a perfect presentation of how changing weight changes the operation of a flywheel mechanism. The model has a special slot where a coin or a screw nut (or anything that fits) can be inserted to increase the weight and change the momentum of the mechanism.
