The Danish Asetek Sim Sports company will soon release the brand new Invicta Direct Drive wheelbase. Asetek is planning to release both a 27nm Invicta and a 17nm Forte wheelbase. If all goes as planned, the units should be available by the end of the year.
Having a wheelbase is one thing. Needless to say, you also need a way to attach a wheel rim to the unit. Asetek could have gone for an existing stock quick release but decided to come up with its own purpose-built quick release design based on the Simucube system.
In January of 2021, Asetek acquired a significant amount of Intellectual Property Rights from Granite Devices, who make the Simucube wheelbases. In this IP acquisition, the right to use, further develop and enhance the Simucube quick release was included. This license to further modify the Simucube design resulted in a very user-friendly and fast way to connect the wheel and its electronics to the wheelbase.
In the latest Asetek video, CEO, Andre Eriksen brings us up to date with all the insights and details regarding the new custom Asetek Quick-Release unit.
