OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+
At present, there are two OpenWheeler models available: OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+, available at 270 and 312 GBP, respectively. These prices include VAT and do not include delivery fares (with the exception of the United Kingdom - free delivery is available on all UK orders). The fortunate English customers should allow 1-2 days for order fulfillment, which is rather fast actually. Let’s explore how the two OpenWheeler models perform.
Video game racing wheels
The basic gaming cockpit model created by OpenWheeler is called OpenWheeler. Irrespective of its name, you should not look upon it as being an entry-level model. That’s because OpenWheeler is compatible with almost all home video game racing wheel models available on the market, which do not require a separate gear shift mount. That’s almost 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. Looks like nearly all major home video game driving wheels are suitable for this compact car racing game simulator.
OpenWheeler+ has a special holder for an external gear shifting unit. In fact, that’s the sole difference between the two models. Apt examples of driving game wheel models with an external gear shift device are the famous Logitech G25 and Logitech G27 models.
The list of OpenWheeler’s pluses is not really brief, as you will notice. Most of OpenWheeler’s features you will find in other famous and not-so-famous home driving simulator seats. Other features like the gliding rails and the easy movability (thanks to its front wheels) you will find in OpenWheeler only.
An ideal racing posture. The driver’s chair is actually a real bucket seat. You will feel like driving an actual race car. You will plainly love it.
Terrific comfort. Thanks to the real racing seat in use and the back and shoulder support offered by OpenWheeler, the pilot can actually deal with the so-called g-forces. Although everything remains fixed (the monitor, the gaming console and the entire cockpit), the majority of the pilots twist their bodies going along with the track ahead, especially when steering under pressure or while overtaking. That’s when the g-forces we are talking about kick in. The back and shoulder support offered by OpenWheeler gaming seat is just remarkable.
A foldable seat back. The pilot can change the seat back angle. The racing chair folds flat, so, after the racing game is over, it will take up less space.
Sliding rails. They will help you reach the optimum driving posture. An extremely convenient feature, especially when car racing game players with different body shapes drive one after the other. Just glide the seat backwards and forwards until the optimum driving posture has been achieved. With other driving game cockpits, you will have to use knobs to make the necessary adjustments. With OpenWheeler, you will spare time and effort.
A telescopic driving simulation game wheel system. For adjusting the height of the home video game racing wheel. Suitable for both big and small driving game players.
An adjustable pedal board. Move the pedals until you achieve the most balanced racing posture.
Easy maneuvering (thanks to the small front-side wheels). That’s a bright idea. Two plan front-side wheels transform the 20-kg OpenWheeler PC driving chair into a 4-5-kilogram pushchair. A seven-year-old kid can move it anywhere without much effort.
