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 marketĀ measured on all parameters butĀ 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 Invictaā„¢ 27Nm, the 18Nm ForteĀ®, and the 12Nm upgradeable La Primaā„¢ wheelbases.

True to the spirit of our other products, atĀ Asetek SimSportsĀ®, you will get the sameĀ quality, durability, engineering excellenceĀ ā€“ and most importantly ā€“ the same user experience, independent of whether you buy our entry-level La Primaā„¢ series or our top-tierĀ Invictaā„¢ products. Each wheelbase from 12-27Nm features aĀ high-end 22-bit encoder, slipring, and electronics providing an unrivaled driving experience,Ā leaving cogging and lagging in ancient history. All vital parts are of courseĀ made of aluminum and steel.

All Asetek SimSportsĀ® wheelbases provideĀ smooth, super responsive, and precise feedbackĀ to the driver, where you will feel even the smallest bumps and curbs on the road. As an example ā€“ each of our wheelbases has aĀ resolution of 0,000085 degrees or roughly 4.000.000Ā stepsĀ in just one revolution of the wheel! In other words, with an Asetek SimSportsĀ®Ā wheelbase, you do not have to choose between a trueĀ high-fidelity driver experienceĀ 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 SimSportsĀ®Ā pedals, wheels and future peripherals withĀ up to 5 USB-S portsĀ 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 fullyĀ customizable aRGB LED stripsĀ ā€“ allowing you to match your wheelbase to the rest of your Asetek SimSportsĀ®Ā equipment, team colors, or even the color of your fireproof racing underwear! Everything isĀ managed by our central software RaceHub ā„¢, which is also the home for your wheelbase, where you, in addition to all your other Asetek SimSportsĀ®Ā equipment, can adjust the base and driving experience exactly to your preference!

All Asetek SimSportsĀ®Ā wheelbases feature our own quick release that is as easy to use as shifting gears ā€“ 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 ourĀ easy-to-use no-play quick release.Ā 

We do realize that many sim racers haveĀ personal preferencesĀ 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 offerĀ native support for the Asetek SimSportsĀ® Direct Drive wheelbases, meaning you can rest assured that you will be buying intoĀ a flexible and ever-expanding ecosystem.

Our relentless focus onĀ Performance and PrecisionĀ without breaking the bank, gives the Asetek SimSportsĀ® wheel aĀ competitive edge, allowing you to get down to the tarmac and be one with your virtual racecar. Also providingĀ you with theĀ quality and durabilityĀ you have come to expect from Asetek. Designed to last.Ā Engineered, assembled and tested in Denmark!

ASETEK FORTEĀ® FORMULA STEERING WHEEL

Inspired by real-life formula cars, the Asetek SimsportsĀ® ForteĀ® Formula Steering Wheel has been thoroughly designed by racers and sim racers alike to live up to the feeling of real-life racing, and at the same time adopting sim racing feedback. With this and other feedback in mind, we started from the ground up and a clean sheet of paper on a mission to create the best possible sim racing formula wheel, but like our other products, without breaking the bank. We are pleased to say that we achieved just that ā€“ please meet the ForteĀ® Formula steering wheel!

Overview

The design is engineered with user experience in mind, where all adjustable elements are colored to get you started quickly, and to ensure intuitive and mostly toolless use. The Forte sim pedals are highly adjustable to help you channel your inner race car driver, by changing the travel and hardness settings to your exact preference. And by using the Asetek SimSportsĀ® RaceHubā„¢ software, youā€™re ready to race in no time.

The ergonomic handles are made with a comfortable, soft, and durable silicone rubber, that is easy to clean and disinfect, and will give you ultimate comfort and control, regardless of whether you are wearing racing gloves or not. You will have the option to easily change the handles to quickly implement future upgrades, including color, size, shape, and hardness.

The front face of the wheel is made in a 2mm woven carbon plate providing a beautiful home for all the buttons and switches.

With 128 individual input options, the Asetek SimsportsĀ® ForteĀ® Formula Steering Wheel will, through our RaceHubā„¢, give you the option to customize and map all buttons, switches, encoders, and paddles you need to be on top of your game. Featuring 12 push buttons, two 2-way toggle switches and two 7-way kinky switches, three rotary encoders, and six thumb encoders, you are able to control all of your desired settings.

All buttons, switches, and rotaries are of the highest quality standards and fully tested and validated in our automated button testing machines to ensure years and years of reliable daily use.

The backside features, by default, two contactless magnetic shifter paddles, for fast and seamless gear shifts. The wheel is easily upgradeable to a dual-clutch for perfect race starts as well as two additional mappable paddles that, for example, can be used for effortless overtake and DRS activation. All paddles and associated mechanics are, like the wheel chassis itself, injection molded with an ultralight and stiff carbon composite material.

The ForteĀ® wheel features no less than 49 fully customizable ARGB LEDs including rev and flag lights ā€“ allowing you to not only customize the look of your steering wheel, but also help you make those split-second decisions that can make the difference between success and failure. LEDs can, of course, be adjusted, dimmed, color customized, and mapped in RaceHubā„¢, with many many more features to come. Each button and LED can be clearly marked via the provided sticker sheet, giving a backlit label for each function on your wheel.
