Ricmotech has partnered with Max Papis Innovations to create this unique and game changing sim wheel. "The trick is in the grip" some would say. The revolutionary Super Grip GT material is a unique silicone fabric that is durable yet has loads of grip even without gloves. The unique grip material means the driver doesn't need to maintain a "death grip" on the wheel. Instead, a light touch is all that is needed. This means the driver can feel more through the hands than ever before. That is why we call it Supergrip. The wheel diameter is 320mm (12.6 inches).
The top and bottom of the rim is covered in plush Alantara, a synthetic suede material used extensively in cars by BMW, Porsche, Ferrari, McLaren and many more. The wheel features a flat bottom, oval molded grip and is mated to custom aluminum magnetic paddle shifters. The magnetic action imparts a positive shifting awareness that resonates through the wheel with an undeniable tactile sensation.
While other wheels on the market are heavy and bloated this full-size wheel is designed to minimize rotational mass to yield increased detail from the force-feedback effects. Your direct-drive steering 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 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 giving the equivalent of 4 encodes. Turning the knob left to right handles one set of functions while pushing and turning controls an additional function. 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.
The Super Grip GT wheel can be fitted with an optional quick release available separately.
