OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+
At the moment, there are two OpenWheeler models on offer: OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+, available at 270 and 312 pounds, respectively. These prices include VAT and exclude shipping costs (with the exception of the UK - free-of-charge shipping is available on all UK orders). The fortunate English clients should allow 1 to 2 days for order fulfillment, which is pretty quick in fact. Let’s explore how the two OpenWheelers perform.
Game driving wheels
The basic Xbox driving simulator model produced by OpenWheeler is called OpenWheeler. Regardless of its name, you should not consider it as being an entry-level model. That’s because OpenWheeler is compatible with almost all home driving game wheels available on the market, which do not require a separate gear shift plate. That’s nearly ninety-nine percent of all driving game wheel models available on the marketplace. Your Logitech Driving Force GT, Logitech EX, Fanatec Porsche or Thrustmaster T500 RS will fit perfectly into OpenWheeler’s chassis. Looks like nearly all major steering wheels are suitable for this compact home racing chair.
OpenWheeler+ has a special mount for an external gear shift apparatus. Actually, that’s the only difference between the two models. Good examples of home driving game wheel models with an external gear shift device are the popular Logitech G25 and Logitech G27 models.
The list of OpenWheeler’s advantages is not that concise, as you will notice. Most of OpenWheeler’s features you will find in other famous and not-so-famous car driving seat simulators. Other features like the sliding rails and the easy maneuvering (thanks to its front-side wheels) you will find in OpenWheeler exclusively.
An optimal racing posture. The pilot’s seat is actually a real bucket seat. You will feel like driving a real racing car. You are gonna plainly love it.
Outstanding comfort. Thanks to the real bucket seat in use and the back and shoulder support offered by OpenWheeler, the driver can actually handle the so-called g-forces. Though everything remains in place (the monitor, the game console and the entire simulator cockpit), the majority of the drivers bend their bodies going along with the track ahead, particularly when racing 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 PlayStation 3 gaming chair is simply fantastic.
A collapsible seat back. The driver can change the seat back angle. The driving seat folds flat, so, after the video game has come to an end, it will take up less room.
Sliding rails. They will help you reach the ideal driving posture. A very convenient feature, especially when home driving simulation video game players of different heights and weights race one after the other. Just slide the racing seat backwards and forwards until the optimal driving position has been found. With other car game racing simulators, you will have to use knobs to apply the required adjustments. With OpenWheeler, you will save time and effort.
A telescopic video game wheel platform. For altering the height of the home video game driving wheel. Ideal for both big and small home driving simulation video game players.
A flexible pedal platform. Move the pedals until you reach the optimal driving posture.
Easy movability (thanks to the little front wheels). That’s a splendid idea. Two plan front-side wheels transform the 20-kg OpenWheeler PS3 driving simulator into a 4-5-kilogram stroller. A seven-year-old child can move it anywhere with little effort.
