The trick is in the grip. This unique sim wheel features an exclusive SuperGrip silicone-based grip material that gives the driver ultimate control. Unlike other formula wheels that have polyurethane or suede, this wheel offers superior comfort and grip. The SuperGrip material is a special silicone impregnated developed by Max Papis Innovations. The material creates a non-slip grip with the driver's hands. This lets the driver relax their grip on the wheel. By reducing the "death-grip" on the steering wheel the driver gets more feedback from the steering and is able to deliver steering inputs with higher fidelity. The difference is huge in terms of car control as steering corrections are near effortless.
The wheel features a lightweight construction that minimizes rotational mass to yield increased detail from the force-feedback effects. While other wheels on the market are heavy and bloated this full-size wheel is light and nimble. Your servo motor will become more effective because there is less rotating mass to dampen the sensation. The result is a crisper sensation which improves your driving experience.
The kit is based on a genuine Max Papis Innovations GT11C 270mm (10.6 inches) wheel that has been specially made in Alcantara and RG SuperGrip material. The wheel rim is mated to custom all-aluminum magnetic paddle shifters. The shifters have adjustable horizontal positioning in addition to adjustable travel distance. The magnetic action imparts a positive shifting sensation which resonates through the wheel with an undeniable tactile sensation.
The buttons, switches and knobs on the wheel have a total of 18 functions that are mappable in game. The embedded controller was created to be ultra responsive for all the button functions and paddle shifts. The encoders have a unique dual-control function which contributes to high functionality in a smaller footprint. The coiled cable is detachable so it can be easily replaced in case of damage.
The wheel includes a coiled cable with a USB connector. We recommend having a USB jack near the steering base such as our USB Dock or any USB hub. The coiled cable is not intended to stretch to the PC.
