Browsing through old photo archives we stumbled upon an image of a fun and smart transport device invented in the beginning of the 20th century. This was a single wheel accommodating one passenger-driver who looked so pleased with himself sitting inside his curious device that we couldn't help but design one for our collection. We extended our research to find out more about single-wheel mechanisms and found ones that had no operator at all, developed as war machines and all covered in armor. What really inspired us was a similar approach to the transmission employed in all the prototypes starting in the 1860s: a moving outer element with a stationary mechanism inside. Our peaceful minds striving for creation and curiosity took the best of those two prototypes and today we proudly present the all-wooden mechanical Monowheel!
UGears Monowheel kit comes with 300 parts, including 19 spare parts. The assembled model measures at (7.3 x 3.7 x' 6.3' inches) and like all UGears family models, it's made of sustainably sourced high grade wood and has everything you will need for assembly. The quality of the parts is top-notch: a laser method is used for cutting items from a plywood board that provides precise hairline cuts. The details have to be pulled out of the boards and assembled to create a complete model.
Like all other UGears models, the Monowheel comes with step-by-step, full-color, truly easy to follow instructions in 11 languages (English, German, Ukrainian, French, Polish, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, Italian, Chinese and Korean) and requires neither glue nor special tools to be fully assembled into functional Monowheel.
