Powered by the sun - no batteries required! Volta Racer uses advanced flexible solar technology to power its drive train. Volta Racer's chassis, frame and wheels are made of super lightweight and durable recyclable materials. The axles are made of bamboo - a strong natural wood resource. Thomas Edison used bamboo as the light filament in the world's first incandescent light bulb. Once assembled - let the sun power your fun.
