OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+ models

At present, there are two OpenWheeler models available: OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+, available at 270 and 312 British pounds, respectively. These prices include VAT and exclude shipping (with the exception of the UK - free-of-cost shipping is available on all UK orders). The lucky UK clients should allow 1-2 days for delivery, which is quite quick actually. Let’s check out how the two OpenWheeler models work.

Home video game driving wheels

The basic Xbox racing seat model constructed by OpenWheeler is called OpenWheeler. Regardless of its name, you should not regard it as being an entry-level model. That’s because OpenWheeler works with nearly all home driving game wheel models available on the marketplace, which do not need a separate gear shift frame. That’s almost 99 percent of all video game racing wheels available on the marketplace. Your Logitech Driving Force GT, Logitech EX, Fanatec Porsche or Thrustmaster T500 RS will fit perfectly into OpenWheeler’s chassis. Sounds like almost all major driving wheel models are suitable for this compact home driving chair.

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

Xbox Racing Seat

The list of OpenWheeler’s pluses is not that concise, as you will see. Most of OpenWheeler’s features you will find in other popular and not-so-popular car game driving chairs. Other features like the sliding rails and the easy navigation (thanks to its front wheels) you will find in OpenWheeler only.

An ideal driving position. The pilot’s seat is actually a real bucket seat. You will feel like driving an actual race car. You are gonna plainly love it.

Astonishing comfort. Thanks to the real bucket seat in use and the back and shoulder support offered by OpenWheeler, the driver can actually cope with the so-called g-forces. Even though everything holds still (the screen, the video game console and the whole racing cockpit), most drivers twist their bodies going along with the road ahead, usually when driving under pressure or while overtaking. That’s when the g-forces we have just referred to kick in. The back and shoulder support offered by OpenWheeler Xbox gaming seat is simply marvelous.

A folding seat back. The pilot can alter the seat back position. The driving seat folds flat, so, after the home racing game is over, it will occupy less space.

Sliding rails. They will help you reach the most balanced racing posture. An extremely useful feature, especially when car racing simulation video game players of different body proportions race one after another. Just slide the seat backwards and forwards until the optimal racing position has been reached. With other video game driving simulators, you will have to use knobs to make the needed adjustments. With OpenWheeler, you will spare time and effort.

A telescopic driving wheel system. For altering the height of the steering wheel. Ideal for both big and small racing car simulation video game players.

An adjustable pedal platform. Move the pedals until you achieve the optimal driving position.

Easy movability (thanks to the small front-side wheels). That’s a very good idea. Two simple front-side wheels transform the 20-kilogram OpenWheeler Xbox racing chair into a 4-5-kilogram trolley. A seven-year-old child can move it anywhere with little effort.
