Simucube Reviews

The Simucube name is pretty much synonymous with Direct Drive sim racing wheelbases, and their parent company Granite Devices has a wealth of experience in mechanical engineering and mechatronics. Many people consider the Simucube bases to be the benchmark when it comes to force feedback quality, despite the product range being almost 5 years old now.

Simucube 2 bases are on the high end of the scale price wise, even with their cheapest 17NM Simucube 2 Sport base and it only goes up from there. However you are getting what you pay for and the products feel more like a piece of high end machinery you’d find in a manufacturing facility than a video game input device.

Their ecosystem is somewhat limited, with only a few of their own wheels available, and their active pedals which are revolutionary for sim racing, but also prohibitively expensive.

    As part of our Essential Direct Drive Sim Racing Buyer's Guide we covered the most important details of the Simucube ecosystem.
