GT Pro Sparco – prestigious steering wheel with first-class technology
Who does not know the Sparco brand as if was not living in the world of motoring. When the product of this famous Italian company merges with Cube Controls top technology, the perfect steering wheel for the racing simulator is born.
Safety should always come first in motor sport. This was very well known to two young drivers who founded Sparco in 1977. Specialization was clear – products that enhance the safety of motor sports. They specialized in the production of racing suits, shoes and other accessories. Later they shifted to the development of racing seats, yet, they are seats, which are greatly involved not only in keeping the driver in the turns, but also in safety in case of an accident.
Sparco’s product portfolio has been expanding gradually over the years and at some point, racing steering wheels were added to it. Thanks to the many prestigious collaborations that Sparco has acquired during its existence, its products have been popular with professional drivers around the world. Sparco steering wheels can be found in many racing specials for different disciplines.
Sensitivity = safety
Indeed, steering wheels also make a great contribution to driver safety. If you ask any racer what is most important on a wet track, they will answer good wheels and sensitive steering. The steering wheel must give the rider’s hands precise information about what surface is under the front wheels, what are the front wheels doing and what they can still afford. If you mounted just any steering wheel into a racing car, the driver would not be able to feel the car’s behavior so well, which could lead not only to bad times but also to fatal accidents.
But what does a racing car steering wheel have in common with a simulator steering wheel? Currently, a lot. Modern racing simulators feature state-of-the-art software that can perfectly simulate real car behavior. Such software, combined with a professional driving unit, creates a realistic driving experience. In this case, the steering wheel plays an important role in the simulator.
Combinations proven over years
Since Sparco company has many years of experience in racing car parts development, the steering wheel Sparco P310, which is the foundation for the GT Pro Sparco racing steering wheel, has been designed according to the demands of professional drivers. These result in a specific shape with not only the lower but also the upper part beveled and shaping of the steering wheel side parts. They are designed to keep the steering wheel in driver’s hands as good as possible and not to slip out of their hands even in the most demanding passages.
The steering wheel is traditionally covered with suede, which also contributes to the transfer of data from road to the driver’s hands and a good grip. Under the suede cover is a high-quality aluminum body complemented with carbon front and carbon gear shifters.
Cube Controls company has equipped this steering wheel with its technology to meet the most demanding users. On the GT Pro Sparco steering wheel, you will find several ergonomically positioned controllers that are always at hand. 5 precision-operation aluminum buttons, two LED switches, two front and two side rotary controls and a multi-directional joystick ensure quick access to basic car functions without the driver having to release their hand from the steering wheel. Shifters on the rear of the steering wheel are equipped with a Hall sensor, a magnetic sensor, not a classic hardware button to ensure greater accuracy.
