Ascher Racing Push-Pull Sequential Paddle Shifter

The last few years, German engineer and avid sim racer Martin Ascher has made a name for himself building high-standard sim racing equipment for the sim and real racing market.

Recently, Ascher Racing introduced the new magnetic snap action push-pull sequential paddle shifter which let you experience gear shifting like a real rally car driver. With a push-pull sequential paddle shifter mounted to the sim racing rig or wheelbase, the driver is able to shift gears without removing his hands from the wheel rim. This has proven very handy for racing vehicles which require a lot of steering input, such as a rally or drift car.

The magnetic snap action, combined with a very stiff design and selection of materials provides a super precise shift feeling. The actuation force can be set in 6 steps for a wide range from about 5N to 15N (“0.5kg – 1.5kg” / “1.1lbf – 3.4lbf”).

Ascher Racing also supplies an optional mounting bracket which lets you mount the shifter to a selection of OSW products and the Fanatec CSW. (OSW MiGE, OSW AKM, OSW Lenze, Fanatec CSW) Furthermore, there are also connection cables available for an external USB controller such as the (e.g. Heusinkveld pedals), SimuCUBE (X12 port), and Fanatec CSW (SHIFTER2 port).
