OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+
At present, there are two OpenWheeler models on offer: OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+, available at 270 and 312 British pounds, respectively. These prices include VAT and exclude shipping taxes (with the exception of the United Kingdom - free delivery is offered on all UK orders). The fortunate British customers should allow 1 to 2 days for delivery, which is rather quick in fact. Let’s check out how the two OpenWheeler models function.
Home driving game wheels
The basic gaming cockpit model assembled by OpenWheeler is called OpenWheeler. Irrespective of its name, you should not consider it as being an entry-level model. That’s because OpenWheeler works with nearly all racing game wheel models available on the market, which do not need a separate gear shift mount. That’s approximately ninety-nine percent of all racing wheels available on the marketplace. Your Logitech Driving Force GT, Logitech EX, Fanatec Porsche or Thrustmaster T500 RS will fit ideally into OpenWheeler’s chassis. Sounds like nearly all major driving wheel models are compatible with this compact game racing simulator seat.
OpenWheeler+ has a special stand for an external gear shifting device. Actually, that’s the only difference between the two models. Suitable examples of home racing game wheel models with an external gear shift apparatus are the famous Logitech G25 and Logitech G27 models.
The list of OpenWheeler’s merits is not that brief, as you will see. Most of OpenWheeler’s features you will find in other popular and not-so-popular racing simulators. Other features such as the gliding rails and the easy movability (thanks to its front-side wheels) you will find in OpenWheeler exclusively.
A proper driving posture. The driver’s seat is in fact a real bucket seat. You will feel like driving an actual car. You will simply love it.
Superb comfort. Thanks to the real racing seat in use and the back and shoulder support offered by OpenWheeler, the pilot can actually handle the so-called g-forces. Though everything remains in place (the TV, the game console and the whole cockpit simulator), the majority of the drivers bend their bodies following the road ahead, particularly when racing under pressure or while overtaking. That’s when the g-forces we are talking about kick in. The shoulder and back support offered by OpenWheeler driving simulator is simply fantastic.
A folding seat back. The driver can adjust the seat back angle. The seat folds flat, so, after the home driving simulation game has been completed, it will take up less space.
Sliding rails. They will help you achieve the optimal racing position. A very convenient feature, especially when car racing simulation video game players with different body shapes drive one after another. Simply slide the seat back and forth until the perfect driving position has been found. With other car racing simulator cockpits, you will have to use knobs to make the necessary changes. With OpenWheeler, you will spare time and effort.
A telescopic car driving simulation game wheel platform. For adjusting the height of the home video game racing wheel. Perfect for both tall and short driving video game players.
An adjustable pedal board. Move the pedals until you find the optimum driving position.
Easy maneuvering (thanks to the small front-side wheels). That’s a smart idea. Two simple front wheels turn the 20-kg OpenWheeler gaming chair into a 4-5-kilogram buggy. A seven-year-old child can move it anywhere with little effort.
