OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+

At the moment, there are two OpenWheeler models on offer: OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+, offered at 270 GBP and 312 GBP, respectively. These prices include VAT and exclude delivery charges (with the exception of the United Kingdom - free-of-charge shipping is available on all UK orders). The fortunate UK customers should allow 1 to 2 days for shipping, which is rather quick in fact. Let’s see how the two OpenWheelers work.

Home video game racing wheels

The basic Xbox racing simulator model created by OpenWheeler is called OpenWheeler. Regardless of its name, you should not regard it as being an entry-level model. That’s because OpenWheeler works with almost all racing wheels available on the market, which do not need a separate gear shift stand. That’s almost 99 percent of all driving game wheels available on the market. Your Logitech Driving Force GT, Logitech EX, Fanatec Porsche or Thrustmaster T500 RS will fit perfectly into OpenWheeler’s chassis. Sounds like almost all major steering wheel models are suitable for this compact video game simulator seat.

OpenWheeler+ has a special mount for an external gear shifting unit. Actually, that’s the only difference between the two models. Good examples of home video game driving wheel models with an external gear shift device are the famous Logitech G25 and Logitech G27 models.

Racing Cockpit

The list of OpenWheeler’s merits is not that concise, as you will see. Most of OpenWheeler’s features you will find in other popular and not-so-popular car driving game simulator seats. Other features like the sliding rails and the easy maneuverability (thanks to its front wheels) you will find in OpenWheeler only.

An optimal racing posture. The pilot’s chair is actually a real bucket seat. You will feel like navigating an actual racing car. You will plainly love it.

Remarkable comfort. Thanks to the real bucket seat in use and the back and shoulder support offered by OpenWheeler, the driver can actually cope with the so-called g-forces. Even though everything remains in place (the TV, the home video game console and the entire simulator cockpit), most pilots bend their bodies following the track ahead, particularly when driving 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 PS3 racing simulator is simply fantastic.

A bendable seat back. The driver can fine-tune the seat back position. The driving chair folds flat, so, after the racing simulation game is over, it will take up less room.

Gliding rails. They will help you reach the ideal racing posture. A very convenient feature, especially when racing car simulation video game players of different proportions drive one after another. Just glide the racing seat backwards and forwards until the best racing posture has been found. With other home racing chairs, you will have to use knobs to make the needed adjustments. With OpenWheeler, you will spare time and effort.

A telescopic car racing simulation game wheel platform. For adjusting the height of the racing game wheel. Great for both tall and short racing simulation game players.

A flexible pedal board. Move the pedals until you find the most balanced racing posture.

Easy movability (thanks to the small front-side wheels). That’s a wonderful idea. Two plan front-side wheels turn the 20-kg OpenWheeler racing cockpit into a 4-5-kg trolley. A 7-year-old child can move it anywhere with little effort.
