At the moment, 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 delivery fares (with the exception of the United Kingdom - free-of-charge shipping is available on all UK orders). The fortunate English customers should allow 1-2 days for delivery, which is pretty quick in fact. Let’s explore how the two OpenWheeler models function.
The basic PS3 gaming chair 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 nearly all driving game wheels available on the marketplace, which do not require a separate gear shift mount. That’s almost 99 percent of all racing game wheel models 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 nearly all major car racing game wheel models are suitable for this compact home racing simulator seat.
OpenWheeler+ has a special stand for an external gear shift device. In fact, that’s the only difference between the two models. Good examples of home driving game wheel models with an external gear shifting device are the popular Logitech G25 and Logitech G27 models.
The list of OpenWheeler’s pluses is not really brief, as you will notice. The majority of OpenWheeler’s features you will find in other famous and not-so-famous game driving simulator seats. Other features like the sliding rails and the easy maneuvering (thanks to its front-side wheels) you will find in OpenWheeler only.
A correct driving posture. The driver’s seat is actually a real racing seat. You will feel like navigating an actual racing car. You will simply love it.
Impressive comfort. Thanks to the real racing seat in use and the shoulder and back support offered by OpenWheeler, the pilot can actually cope with the so-called g-forces. Although everything stands still (the monitor, the home video game console and the entire cockpit simulator), most drivers bend their bodies going along with the track ahead, especially 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 PS3 driving seat is just fantastic.
A foldaway seat back. The pilot can fine-tune the seat back position. The racing chair folds flat, so, after the home driving game has come to an end, it will occupy less room.
Gliding rails. They will help you achieve the ideal racing posture. An extremely convenient feature, especially when driving car video game players with different shapes race one after another. Just slide the seat backwards and forwards until the most balanced racing position has been reached. With other car game driving cockpits, you will have to use knobs to make the required changes. With OpenWheeler, you will save time and effort.
A telescopic racing game wheel platform. For fine-tuning the height of the hand wheel. Ideal for both big and small home driving video game players.
A flexible pedal platform. Move the pedals until you find the most balanced driving posture.
Easy maneuverability (thanks to the little front wheels). That’s a splendid idea. Two plan front-side wheels transform the 20-kilogram OpenWheeler PS3 gaming seat into a 4-5-kilogram pushchair. A seven-year-old kid can move it anywhere with little effort.
