OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+
At present, there are two OpenWheeler models on offer: OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+, available at 270 GBP and 312 GBP, respectively. These prices include VAT and do not include shipping charges (with the exception of the United Kingdom - free-of-charge delivery is offered on all UK orders). The fortunate UK customers should allow 1 to 2 days for delivery, which is pretty fast in fact. Let’s examine how the two OpenWheelers function.
The basic driving simulator model made by OpenWheeler is called OpenWheeler. Regardless of its name, you should not consider it as being an entry-level model. That’s because OpenWheeler works with nearly all home driving game wheels available on the marketplace, which do not require a separate gear shift plate. That’s approximately 99% of all game racing wheel models 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 almost all major driving game wheel models are suitable for this compact racing simulator.
OpenWheeler+ has a special holder for an external gear shift unit. Actually, that’s the sole difference between the two models. Applicable examples of driving game wheel models with an external gear shift apparatus are the popular Logitech G25 and Logitech G27 models.
The list of OpenWheeler’s merits is not really brief, as you will notice. The majority of OpenWheeler’s features you will find in other popular and not-so-popular driving car game cockpits. Other features like the gliding rails and the easy navigation (thanks to its front wheels) you will find in OpenWheeler exclusively.
A perfect driving posture. The driver’s seat is actually a real bucket seat. You will feel like driving a real car. You will simply love it.
Unbelievable comfort. Thanks to the real racing seat in use and the shoulder and back support offered by OpenWheeler, the pilot can actually deal with the so-called g-forces. Although everything holds still (the monitor, the console and the entire racing cockpit), the majority of the drivers twist 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 seat is simply remarkable.
A bendable seat back. The driver can fine-tune the seat back position. The driving chair folds flat, so, after the car racing simulation game has been completed, it will take up less space.
Sliding rails. They will help you achieve the most balanced racing position. An extremely handy feature, especially when racing car simulation video game players of different body proportions drive one after another. Simply slide the racing seat backwards and forwards until the ideal driving posture has been reached. With other car driving game chairs, you will have to use knobs to apply the necessary adjustments. With OpenWheeler, you will spare time and effort.
A telescopic home racing game wheel platform. For fine-tuning the height of the home driving game wheel. Excellent for both tall and short driving car simulation video game players.
A flexible pedal platform. Move the pedals until you achieve the optimum driving position.
Easy navigation (thanks to the small front-side wheels). That’s a clever idea. Two plan front wheels turn the 20-kg OpenWheeler game seat into a 4-5-kilogram stroller. A 7-year-old child can move it anywhere without much effort.
