Ladies and gentlemen: a gift-giving hint. Everyone loves gizmos. Whirly-giggy thing-a-me-bobs that move - especially when assembly is involved. How rewarding is that? Ugears has that particular niche well and truly covered.

Inspired by classic Tour De France chronicles, the Automaton Cyclist embodies the spirit of an age-old sport and great competition. The signature Ugears design makes this outstanding model fun to build and a unique showpiece for home or office. It`s a perfect gift idea for your family, friends and colleagues. 

Ugears is known for an original approach to wooden model kits and this time their design wizards used a simple flywheel to create the magic. Start it by pulling the lever on the side of the model and watch the cyclist launch into a race. The flywheel accumulates kinetic energy due to its weight. It's a perfect demonstration of how changing weight changes the work of a flywheel mechanism. There's a slot for inserting a coin or screw nut – anything that fits – to increase the weight and change the momentum of the mechanism.

All Ugears models are made of wooden materials and come with all you need for assembly. Follow our comprehensive step-by-step multilingual manual and you'll get to the finish line without breaking a sweat!

Number of components: 189
Estimated time for assembly: 4 hours
