For avid pro and enthusiast sim racers, the Dutch Heusinkveld Engineering brand does not need any introduction.
Back in September at the 2018 Sim Racing Expo, Heusinkveld Engineering proudly announced their HE Sim Pedals Sprint set which was replacing the older yet popular HE Sim Pedals Pro.
As with most Heusinkveld gear, all the mechanics, electronics, and software of the new pedal set had been designed from the ground up. including the SmartControl software which added a layer of software-based configuration options on top of extensive mechanical adjustability. Needless to say, the pedals were an instant commercial success, and are now used by many competitive sim racers out there.
Today, Heusinkveld Engineering officially introduced the Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Sprint – Team Redline Edition. As the name suggests, this is a branded Sim Pedals Sprint set styled in the colors of Team Redline who can be regarded as the most successful Esports team in the history of sim racing.

The Sim Pedals Sprint – Team Redline Edition are a strong, compact, and highly adjustable design with the main parts made out of CNC precision laser cut steel, intended for your home-use simulator. Mathematical models were made to accurately calculate pedal travel and force curves, predicting with great accuracy how each pedal behaves in different configurations.
The Team Redline styling has resulted in a significantly different appearance compared to the regular Sim Pedals Sprint. All metal profiles have a RAL9005 Black fine-structure powder coat or a bead blasted semi-gloss metallic look. Red styling cues can be seen on the metal coil springs and all pedal plates carry the Team Redline logo.
The pedals include all new concepts for bearings and pivot points in order to minimize unnecessary play. Automated testing routines have been used to simulate up to 1 million duty cycles.
Durable load cells measure throttle and clutch position and force applied to the brake. Unlike designs with rotary potentiometers, load cells provide true linear output in relation to your pedal output. They are insensitive to dust and dirt and do not wear out, resulting in unmatched accuracy and durability over time.
Custom-developed and EMC tested electronics make sure each pedal responds instantly and accurately in your favorite simulator software. The included SmartControl software allows easy configuration of dead zones, brake force, and customized (non-linear) pedal output curves.
- The 3-pedal kit ( Throttle, Brake, Clutch) is available for €799.00 VAT incl. + shipping.
- The 2-pedal kit ( Throttle, Brake) is available for €699.00 VAT incl. + shipping.
- The 1-pedal Clutch upgrade is available for €134.00 VAT incl. + shipping.
