Asetek Invicta Direct Drive Wheelbase


In stock

The Asetek Invicta Direct Drive wheelbase is designed to be the Ultimate Direct Drive wheelbase, at a competitive price. The Invicta Direct Drive wheelbase is capable of an enormous 27Nm peak torque, so even the most demanding sim racers will be satisfied. This is Asetek's range-topping wheelbase, with excellent functionality and extremely high torque levels, as well as highest torque slew rate for the most realistic sim racing experience.

The Asetek Invicta Direct Drive Wheelbase is another part of the growing Asetek ecosystem, along with their Forte Formula Steering Wheel and Forte GT Steering Wheels, both of which are highly recommended.

There are many highlights of the Invicta Direct Drive wheelbase - the immense 27Nm particularly, the higher peak slew rate of 9.4 Nm/ms, and in particular is the wireless (wire-free) connectivity between the wheelbase and the steering wheel. Asetek did not want to rely on a wired steering wheel (wires are messy, clunky and can even limit the amount of steering lock applied), and they didn't want to rely on bluetooth signal which can be unreliable; using their ingenuity, Asetek have channeled the connectivity for their steering wheels through the wheelbase's QR.

Furthermore, Asetek have also routed the charging for their steering wheels through the wheelbase!

So with the Asetek Forte Direct Drive wheelbase, you don't need to worry about battery life, connectivity issues or messy cables from your steering wheel - all the connectiving and charging is routed through the wheelbase's QR, to give you a seamless racing experience.

The Asetek Invicta Direct Drive wheelbase has 6 adjustable RGB LED lights (fully configurable) which we believe further enhance the stylish appearance of this wheelbase and add an extra layer of customization & individuality to your setup.The 22-bit encoder housed within the wheelbase is accurate to increments of 0.000085 degrees, so you can be assured of absolute precision with your inputs.

Currently the Asetek Invicta Direct Drive wheelbase is only compatible with PC.

Manufacturer description - Asetek SimSports® Invicta™ Direct Drive Wheelbase:

Feel the track like never before with the 27Nm Invicta™ Direct Drive Wheelbase. You’ll experience incredible resolution and supreme responsiveness, providing you with an unrivaled racing experience every time you take the wheel.

Every part of the wheelbase contributes to smooth, responsive, and precise feedback. Three essential aspects that undoubtedly will improve the immersion in your sim racing setup and help you become a better racer. 

The Invicta Direct Wheelbase features a resolution of 0.000085 degrees, translating to approximately 4,000,000 steps in a single revolution of the wheel. This allows you to feel every nuance and trim those crucial milliseconds that make all the difference. 


The Pro’s Choice

Direct Drive Wheelbases stand out as the top-tier solution for both professional drivers and sim racers based on a host of benefits that set them apart from the competition. 

Firstly, they provide an unparalleled level of immersion. This is made possible by the ability to reproduce the actual force feedback experienced in real racing, thanks to the direct connection between the wheel and motor. 

Another significant benefit is improved accuracy and precision. The direct connection ensures that these attributes seamlessly translate into greater control over the car. This allows you to execute more responsive movements and make faster adjustments on the track because of the empowered and delay-free connection between the components. 

Moreover, direct drive wheelbases boast exceptional durability and longevity. The absence of belts or gears that wear out over time results in reduced maintenance requirements and an extended lifespan compared to other wheelbases available in the market. 

Asetek SimSports® wheelbases provide smooth, super responsive, and precise feedback to the driver, where you will feel even the smallest bumps and curbs on the road. As an example - each of our wheelbases has a resolution of 0.000085 degrees or roughly 4,000,000 steps in just one revolution of the wheel! In other words, with an Asetek SimSports® wheelbase, you do not have to choose between a true high-fidelity driver experience and a low price. You can get it all! 

As all wheelbases are designed from the ground up, we have been able to develop an extremely compact and flexible form factor accommodating any rig and need. The wheelbase will serve as the central hub in your simulator, where you can connect your Asetek SimSports® pedals, wheels and future peripherals with up to 5 USB-S ports in the rear.  

In its simplest mounting form (default from factory), the bases come with T-nuts pre-installed in bottom groves enabling the motor to slide back and forth in your rig without installing long and expensive steering wheel spacers that ultimately can compromise the life and reliability of your wheelbase. For all wheelbases, we have developed mounting options for any rig ranging from a table clamp solution, bottom mount, side mount and all the way to our integrated front mounts. 
Many sim racers love to tinker with and show off their great rig, and therefore we have implemented up to six fully customizable aRGB LED strips - allowing you to match your wheelbase to the rest of your Asetek SimSports® equipment, team colors, or even the color of your fireproof racing underwear! Everything is managed by our central software RaceHub ™, which is also the home for your wheelbase, where you, in addition to all your other Asetek SimSports® equipment, can adjust the base and driving experience exactly to your preference! 

All Asetek SimSports® wheelbases feature our own quick release that is as easy to use as shifting gears – literally, as to disconnect the wheel from the base, all you have to do is to press a paddle, and the wheel will be in your hands! Needless to say, we are not relying on wireless signals, batteries that need to be charged or cables that can break or fall off. Everything is included in our easy-to-use no-play quick release.  
We do realize that many sim racers have personal preferences for their steering wheel and instead of locking you into a specific eco-system, we have teamed up with a number of leading wheel vendors that will offer native support for the Asetek SimSports® Direct Drive wheelbases, meaning you can rest assured that you will be buying into a flexible and ever-expanding ecosystem.
