Description

ASETEK FORTE 18 NM DIRECT DRIVE WHEEL BASE

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 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 like with our award-winning pedals and steering wheels, we started from a clean sheet.
We bought and implemented IP from market-leading vendors, we teamed up with Mige, a well-known motor supplier to sim racing, and after years of development of grounds-up electronics, software, firmware, mechanics, cooperation, design, test, and validation, we are now ready! Please meet the Invicta‚ĄĘ 27Nm, the 18Nm Forte¬ģ, and the 12Nm upgradeable La Prima‚ĄĘ wheelbases.

True to the spirit of our other products, at¬†Asetek SimSports¬ģ, you will get the same¬†quality, durability, engineering excellence¬†‚Äď and most importantly ‚Äď the same user experience, independent of whether you buy our entry-level La Prima‚ĄĘ series or our top-tier¬†Invicta‚ĄĘ 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¬ģ 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¬ģ¬†wheelbase, you do not have to choose between a true¬†high-fidelity driver experience¬†and a low price. You can get it all!
As all wheelbases are designed from the ground up, we have been able to develop an extremely compact and flexible form factor accommodating any rig and need. The wheelbase will serve as the central hub in your simulator, where you can connect your Asetek SimSports¬ģ¬†pedals, wheels and future peripherals with¬†up to 5 USB-S ports¬†in the rear.
In its simplest mounting form (default from factory), the bases come with T-nuts pre-installed in bottom groves enabling the motor to slide back and forth in your rig without installing long and expensive steering wheel spacers that ultimately can compromise the life and reliability of your wheelbase. For all wheelbases, we have developed mounting options for any rig ranging from a table clamp solution, bottom mount, side mount and all the way to our integrated front mounts.

Many sim racers love to tinker with and show off their great rig, and therefore we have implemented up to six fully¬†customizable aRGB LED strips¬†– allowing you to match your wheelbase to the rest of your Asetek SimSports¬ģ¬†equipment, team colors, or even the color of your fireproof racing underwear! Everything is¬†managed by our central software RaceHub ‚ĄĘ, which is also the home for your wheelbase, where you, in addition to all your other Asetek SimSports¬ģ¬†equipment, can adjust the base and driving experience exactly to your preference!

All Asetek SimSports¬ģ¬†wheelbases feature our own quick release that is as easy to use as shifting gears ‚Äď literally, as to disconnect the wheel from the base, all you have to do is to press a paddle, and the wheel will be in your hands! Needless to say, we are not relying on wireless signals, batteries that need to be charged or cables that can break or fall off. Everything is included in our¬†easy-to-use no-play quick release.¬†

We do realize that many sim racers have¬†personal preferences¬†for their steering wheel and instead of locking you into a specific eco-system, we have teamed up with a number of leading wheel vendors that will offer¬†native support for the Asetek SimSports¬ģ Direct Drive wheelbases, meaning you can rest assured that you will be buying into¬†a flexible and ever-expanding ecosystem.

Our relentless focus on¬†Performance and Precision¬†without breaking the bank, gives the Asetek SimSports¬ģ wheel a¬†competitive edge, allowing you to get down to the tarmac and be one with your virtual racecar. Also providing¬†you with the¬†quality and durability¬†you have come to expect from Asetek. Designed to last.¬†Engineered, assembled and tested in Denmark!
