With the wooden model "Cyclist", the Ukrainian manufacturer Ugears has once again outdone itself. You can look forward to a model that is convincing both in terms of its appearance and its functions, and that is not only interesting for lovers of professional cycling.
A unique wooden model for bicycle fans
The high-quality "Bicyclist" model kit from is already convincing at first glance because it was modelled on a sporty trophy with a bicyclist doing his rounds on top - in this way, the sporty spirit of any competition comes across particularly well. Whether on the desk, in the trophy cabinet or on the office shelf: this unusual model is guaranteed to act as a real eye-catcher.
The cyclist offers you these functions
Like all the other the manufacturer, the cyclist naturally also has a technical inner life: A small lever is built into the side of the cup, which the rider uses to set himself in motion on his bike. As soon as the athlete turns his rounds, the flywheel, which functions here as the main drive element, collects kinetic energy through its own weight. After the lever has been pressed, you can not only watch the cyclist pedalling: the rotating inner workings of the cup, which are made up of many interlocking cogwheels, are also really impressive to watch.
The special highlight of this wooden model is a small slot into which a coin or a similar flat object can be inserted. This significantly changes the cyclist's momentum. This impressively illustrates the different degrees of difficulty a professional cyclist has to take on during his ride towards the finish.
Crafting fun without glue and auxiliary tools
Like all wooden models from Ugears, the sporty cyclist is also made from sustainably grown wood.
The model impresses with an impressive accuracy of fit of the individual components, as they were cut using a precise laser process - so you can be sure that all individual parts always fit together perfectly.
You can also do without glue or additional tools during assembly: The individual components are simply put together like a 3D puzzle.
Younger hobbyists aged 14 and over as well as inexperienced beginners are guaranteed to have a lot of fun completing this kit.
