Today, the Finnish e-sport, and professional simulation racing hardware manufacturer, Simucube revealed the Simucube ActivePedal.
The Simucube ActivePedal is somewhat of a game-changer when it comes to sim racing pedal setups. Simicube came up with a loadcell pedal design without passive elements, featuring unlimited adjustability, repeatability, and simulator telemetry data-based force feedback effects.
Ossi Oikarinen, F1 Engineer said: The Simucube ActivePedal changes the whole braking game in sim racing. So far it is the first and only pedal that can give you the feedback you want from the game and it also gives you the possibility to customize it easily and quickly. There hasn’t been anything like this before.
Where passive pedals rely on rubbers, springs, or cylinders to mimic the feel of real-world units, the Simucube ActivePedal produces all the pedal forces with the use of an actuator and in-game telemetry. The pedal setup can be set up and tweaked in real-time via a powerful software application that lets you adjust the brake pressure up to 150kg, pedal travel distance, brake air gap, ABS, traction control, and more.
Because of the lack of conventional parts, Simucube states that the ActivePedal will require zero maintenance.
If all goes as planned, the Simucube ActivePedal will become available during Q1 2023. The pricing will be made public when the products become available for pre-order.
