SIMUCUBE 2 Sport – enough playing, let’s race!
The direct drive wheel unit is a hardware, that takes care of the race driver’s true connection with any sim racing simulator software. Its task is to bring realistic sensations to the driver’s hands, which is not the simplest task. However, the sophisticated SIMUCUBE 2 Sport Direct Drive Wheel (OSW) can easily simulate all steering forces, and you will feel all the sensations a real race driver can feel! You will even start worrying, whether you’re still sitting in a simulator…
In real racing cars, the force exerted by the car steering system on the driver’s hands is very powerful. So, it is important, that the Force feedback system of a racing simulator is able to exert enough forces high enough to simulate the real world sensations. In the case of the SIMUCUBE 2 Sport Direct Drive wheel, a strong 17 Nm electric motor takes care of realistic steering system responses, which is able to simulate practically any car and any driving conditions. In addition, the electric motor response rate can be adjusted according to your preference to fit your simulator perfectly.
Simucube 2 Sport will be your key to the club of sim racing champions.

“Achieving the ultimate real driving sensation is the basic key to a perfect racing simulator. Real driving sensation comes when you feel the atmosphere of the track, perceiving even the smallest details of the drive with all senses and with precise car control on the track”
4 basic ingredients of the perfect racing simulator
Ultra-low response time
It is important that the hardware and software of the simulator respond to the driver’s commands with the least delay possible – just like a real racing car. This is the only way the driver can precisely time an overtaking maneuver or a perfect crossing of a turn. In the real world and the world of professional racing simulators, there is simply no delay. The SIMUCUBE 2 Sport Direct Drive wheel with ultra-low delay takes care of this.
Extremely fast steering response means that the driver is drawn directly into the action on the virtual track. Direct Drive wheel brings the driver the feeling of a real racing car, constantly giving them information about the surface beneath the car’s wheels, giving them information about overloads and front axle activity. This allows the driver to control the car extremely precisely on the track.
The SIMUCUBE 2 Pro Direct Drive wheel (OSW) adapts extremely quickly to the current track situation. To the driver’s hands transfers the information about the road surface and front wheel happenings immediately, without any delay. The wide torque range the steering engine can exert on the steering wheel allows to dynamically simulate any driving situation.
Natural signal processing
With some cheaper driving units, the driver feels that the force feedback signals are processed somewhere in the background by the computer and evaluates how the driver reacts to them. With such driving, the driver cannot focus so good on the drive. In the case of the SIMUCUBE 2 Sport driving unit, the signals are processed directly in the hardware, contributing not only to extremely fast responses but also to the natural driving sensation. The driver is drawn directly into the action and does not feel at all that they are just sitting in the simulator.
SIMUCUBE 2 Sport Direct Drive wheel (OSW) combines all the requirements for a perfect driving of racing simulator. The driving is built on a durable and precision high torque industrial electric motor, and electronics and software form a harmonious whole that takes care of natural reactions with less than 1 millisecond delay.
An important aspect of a quality driving unit is the extremely high rigidity and minimal bending of its parts. Simucube Quick Release™, SQR, provides extremely strong connection without any bending or other unwanted movements. When the quick coupling is closed, its rigidity equals the rigidity of a rigid steel shaft.
Thanks to the special SIMUCUBE 2 processor for controlling the engine and the processor for interaction with the computer, the SIMUCUBE 2 Sport Direct Drive steering unit guarantees uncompromisingly fast responses. Once you experience them, you will never want to give up this driving.
Key to perfection
The SIMUCUBE 2 Sport force feedback ensures a perfect driving experience that will satisfy even the most demanding users. Although it leaves little room for improvement for the SIMUCUBE Pro and Ultimate models, its basic functionality is perfected. The SIMUCUBE 2 Sport Direct Drive wheel will find its place in any racing simulator, doesnt matter if it is a simulator for real race drivers, professional sim racers or sim racing enthusiast.
