ASETEK FORTE DIRECT DRIVE
We welcome you to full immersion sim racing!
When we set out to develop our range of direct drive wheelbases, we wanted to develop the best sim racing wheelbases on the market as measured on all parameters but without breaking the bank. We had greater aspirations than just reselling a standard industrial servo motor and then trying to adapt everything else around it. It was a tough task but as we did with our award-winning pedals and steering wheels, we started from a clean sheet.
We bought and implemented IP from market-leading vendors, teamed up with Mige, a well-known motor supplier to sim racing, and after thousands of man-hours of development from the ground-up of electronics, software, firmware, mechanics, cooperation, design, test, and validation, we are now ready! Please meet the Forte® 18Nm Direct Drive Wheelbase!
True to the spirit of our other products, with Asetek SimSports® you get the same quality, durability, engineering excellence – and most importantly – the same user experience, independent of whether you buy our entry-level La Prima™ series or our top-tier Invicta™ products. Each wheelbase from 12-27Nm features a high-end 22-bit encoder, slipring, and electronics providing an unrivaled driving experience, leaving cogging and lagging in ancient history. All vital parts are of course made of aluminum and steel.
All Asetek SimSports® wheelbases provide smooth, super responsive, and precise feedback to the driver, where you will feel even the smallest bumps and curbs on the road. As an example – each of our wheelbases has a resolution of 0,000085 degrees or roughly 4.000.000 steps in just one revolution of the wheel! In other words, with an Asetek SimSports® wheelbase you do not have to choose between a true high-fidelity driver experience and a low price. You get it all!
Our relentless focus on Performance and Precision without breaking the bank gives the Asetek Simsports® wheel a competitive edge, allowing you to get down to the tarmac and be one with your virtual racecar. It also provides you with the quality and durability you have come to expect from Asetek. Designed to last. Engineered, assembled, and tested in Denmark!
