OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+
At present, there are two OpenWheeler models on offer: OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+, available at 270 and 312 pounds, respectively. These prices include VAT and exclude delivery fees (with the exception of the UK - free-of-charge shipping is offered on all UK orders). The lucky UK clients should allow 1-2 days for order fulfillment, which is very fast actually. Let’s check out how the two OpenWheelers perform.
Game racing wheels
The basic driving cockpit model devised by OpenWheeler is called OpenWheeler. Regardless of its name, you should not look upon it as being an entry-level model. That’s because OpenWheeler is compatible with almost all game racing wheel models available on the market, which do not require a separate gear shift holder. That’s approximately 99 percent of all video game driving wheels available on the market. Your Logitech Driving Force GT, Logitech EX, Fanatec Porsche or Thrustmaster T500 RS will fit ideally into OpenWheeler’s chassis. Sounds like almost all major video game racing wheels are suitable for this compact home racing simulator cockpit.
OpenWheeler+ has a special plate for an external gear shifting unit. Actually, that’s the sole difference between the two models. Good examples of video game driving wheel models with an external gear shift mechanism are the famous Logitech G25 and Logitech G27 models.
The list of OpenWheeler’s merits is not that short, as you will see. Most of OpenWheeler’s features you will find in other famous and not-so-famous racing car game simulator cockpits. Other features like the sliding rails and the easy navigation (thanks to its front-side wheels) you will find in OpenWheeler exclusively.
An optimal driving position. The pilot’s chair is actually a real racing seat. You will feel like navigating an actual car. You are gonna simply love it.
Great comfort. Thanks to the real racing seat in use and the shoulder and back support offered by OpenWheeler, the driver can actually handle the so-called g-forces. Even though everything remains fixed (the monitor, the console and the whole cockpit), most drivers bend their bodies following the track ahead, particularly when driving under pressure or while overtaking. That’s when the g-forces we have just touched upon kick in. The shoulder and back support offered by OpenWheeler car simulator is just incredible.
A flexible seat back. The pilot can alter the seat back position. The driving chair folds flat, so, after the home racing game has finished, it will occupy less room.
Sliding rails. They will help you find the best racing posture. An extremely useful feature, especially when racing car video game players with different body shapes race one after another. Just slide the seat back and forth until the ideal racing position has been reached. With other car racing game chairs, you will have to use knobs to make the needed changes. With OpenWheeler, you will save time and effort.
A telescopic driving game wheel system. For adjusting the height of the driving wheel. Suitable for both tall and short home driving video game players.
A flexible pedal board. Move the pedals until you find the perfect racing posture.
Easy movability (thanks to the little front wheels). That’s a marvelous idea. Two plan front-side wheels transform the 20-kg OpenWheeler driving seat into a 4-5-kg trolley. A seven-year-old child can move it anywhere with little effort.
