After over a year in development and even longer in teasing, SimXperience has released the AccuForce Pro Sim Steering System. This is the first model to come from SimXperience, and it looks awesome!

SimXperience AccuForce - No Logo

This wheel was so demanded by the community, a sign-up list was put in place to put orders in line. As of right now, people on the sign-up list are able to purchase the AccuForce Pro for $1,749 (subtract $89 if you are a previous SimXperience customer). The wheel will become available to all on January 21st.

The SimXperience AccuForce is a direct drive racing wheel, which features an in-house designed motor. The motor can generate up to 13NM of force, which is a simply crazy amount for the price! The Pro model comes with everything you need for a plug-and-play solution, including a suede racing wheel and button box. The button box features 12 buttons, as well as carbon fiber paddle shifters, to provide an authentic racey feel.

This is an awesome wheel, and should be great for any sim racer looking to take his experience to the next level. What are your thoughts on this eagerly awaited piece of hardware? Let us know in the comments!

Below is the information from the official product page, which can be found here:

The SimXperience AccuForce Pro is a professional racing simulation steering system. When combined with todays best racing simulation games, the AccuForce Pro is as close as you can get to driving the real thing and is delivered in a convenient, ready to run, plug-n-play package.

The key to it’s incredible realism is our groundbreaking direct drive motor control system. We’ve engineered an integrated motor controller / PC interface as opposed to communicating between two different circuit boards as is common in the industry. This allows the AccuForce to provide lower latency, better response and more accurate detail reproduction than competing direct drive systems. Combined with a motor that’s specifically designed for racing simulation, the AccuForce system provides the best possible balance of torque, response and most importantly, fidelity and linearity. The end result: a driving experience that’s second only to the real thing.

Controller & Base Unit Features
