Derek Speare Designs Brings Simcube 2 Direct Drive Wheels To The US

Derek Speare Designs (DSD), situated in Tampa Bay Florida has some very good news for US-based sim racers. DSD proudly announced that they have partnered with Granite Devices to be the US Distributor for the Simucube 2 Direct Drive Wheels.

Continuing the success of its predecessor Simucube 1, Finnish e-sport and professional simulation racing hardware manufacturer, Granite Devices designed the new Simucube 2 direct drive sim racing wheelbase.

A direct drive force feedback sim racing wheelbase produces steering wheel force feedback by a directly coupled torque motor without any intermediate gear or belt transmission mechanism. The absence of a transmission mechanism enhances force feedback sensation in multiple domains, contributing to faster lap times and immersing the driver to the game.

The all-new Simucube 2 is available in three different torque level variants: The Simucube 2 Sport, the Simucube 2 Pro, and the professional Simucube 2 Ultimate model.

Simucube 2 has been built from the ground up to minimize latencies between the wheelbase and the simulation software and features real-nature modeling based Inertia, Damping and Friction effects inside Simucube’s real-time digital signal processor.

The Simucube Quick Release™ system (SQR) makes it possible to swiftly switch to different steering wheels on Simucube 2. SQR supports most of the existing steering wheels and is straightforward to use. Once SQR wheel is locked-in, the resulting joint to the wheelbase equals the rigidity of a solid piece of metal, just like in a real race car.

Simucube 2 now also supports the Simucube Wireless Wheel™ (SWW) connection between the wheelbase and the steering wheel which allows more freedom for the driver and one less thing to worry about while racing. The SWW system allows hot-swapping different wheels without the need to re-assign controls in the simulator.
