OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+

At the moment, there are two OpenWheeler models on offer: OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+, offered at 270 pounds and 312 pounds, respectively. These prices include VAT and do not include shipping taxes (with the exception of the UK - free shipping is available on all UK orders). The fortunate UK customers should allow 1 to 2 days for delivery, which is quite fast actually. Let’s see how the two OpenWheeler models work.

Video game racing wheels

The basic Xbox gaming chair model designed by OpenWheeler is called OpenWheeler. Irrespective of its name, you should not consider it as being an entry-level model. That’s because OpenWheeler is compatible with almost all home video game driving wheel models available on the market, which do not need a separate gear shift plate. That’s almost ninety-nine percent of all car racing game wheels available on the market. Your Logitech Driving Force GT, Logitech EX, Fanatec Porsche or Thrustmaster T500 RS will fit ideally into OpenWheeler’s chassis. Sounds like almost all major home video game wheel models are suitable for this compact home driving simulator.

OpenWheeler+ has a special frame for an external gear shift unit. Actually, that’s the only difference between the two models. Applicable examples of home video game driving wheel models with an external gear shifting mechanism are the popular Logitech G25 and Logitech G27 models.

Xbox Gaming Seat

The list of OpenWheeler’s strengths is not really short, as you will see. The majority of OpenWheeler’s features you will find in other popular and not-so-popular home racing cockpits. Other features like the sliding rails and the easy navigation (thanks to its front-side wheels) you will find in OpenWheeler exclusively.

An optimum driving position. The pilot’s chair is actually a real racing seat. You will feel like navigating an actual race car. You will plainly love it.

Awesome comfort. Thanks to the real bucket seat in use and the shoulder and back support offered by OpenWheeler, the pilot can actually deal with the so-called g-forces. Even though everything holds still (the screen, the gaming console and the whole cockpit), most pilots bend their bodies following the track ahead, particularly when steering under pressure or while overtaking. That’s when the g-forces we have just touched upon kick in. The shoulder and back support offered by OpenWheeler racing simulator is just terrific.

A collapsible seat back. The pilot can alter the seat back angle. The seat folds flat, so, after the car driving game has finished, it will occupy less room.

Gliding rails. They will help you find the optimal racing posture. A very convenient feature, especially when car racing simulation game players of different body proportions race one after another. Simply slide the seat back and forth until the perfect driving posture has been achieved. With other home driving cockpits, you will have to use knobs to make the required adjustments. With OpenWheeler, you will save time and effort.

A telescopic navigation wheel system. For fine-tuning the height of the navigation wheel. Great for both big and small racing car game players.

An adjustable pedal board. Move the pedals until you find the perfect driving position.

Easy maneuvering (thanks to the small front-side wheels). That’s a brilliant idea. Two plan front-side wheels turn the 20-kilogram OpenWheeler Xbox gaming seat into a 4-5-kg buggy. A 7-year-old child can move it anywhere with little effort.
