Sim racing pedals have always been very passive. Until now you’ve been able to modify your pedals with haptic vibrations, but they’ve been missing an active feedback loop that replicates the sensation of actually driving a car. For example, the brake pads interfacing with the rotor during braking, the rear losing traction under too much throttle input, and the pedals vibrating in sync with the engine RPM. Simucube’s new pedals have literally rewritten the book on what’s possible with the paradigm changing ActivePedal.
These pedals are not just another component in your sim racing setup – they’re a game-changer. It takes you beyond the passive experience of sim racing and brings the feel of the track right under your feet.
What does an F1 engineer think?
“The Simucube ActivePedal changes the whole braking game in sim racing. So far it is the first and only pedal which 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.”
Ossi Oikarinen, F1 Engineer
Feel the engine vibrate, react when ABS activates, and adjust the brake pressure up to 150 kg. You can customize the traction control, brake travel distance, and more. With the simple but versatile software, you can adjust the effects from minimal to overwhelming. The feel stays constant forever, and the precise motor and rail require no maintenance.
Unique new advantages
The Simucube pedals offer a unique advantage with the ability to set up profiles for both the mechanical feel and force feedback, allowing for a more customizable and immersive racing experience.
ActivePedal offers near infinite adjustments, including a smoothness adjustment that gives it a more authentic hydraulic feeling. The adjustment scope runs incredibly deep, including S curves and exponential and logarithmic curves, allowing for a more customized and nuanced driving experience.
