Danish computer cooling experts Asetek’s SimSports Invicta pedals are its first foray into the sim racing equipment world – but if Dave Cam’s recent testing is anything to go by, then we should be paying attention.
To be clear, this isn’t a Dave Cam collaboration like his weekly iRacing videos for Traxion.GG, simply an appreciation of the north’s premier sim racer and his recent opinions. You can watch his full hands-on video above.
Aside from the unique design and eye-catching pricing, the stand-out feature of these new pedals is the brake master cylinder. This involves the ‘Twin Hydraulic Opposing Rapid Pistons’, or ‘T.H.O.R.P.’, which utilises automotive-grade pressure sensors to simulate brake pad to brake disc contact.
The braking feedback can be adjusted through three included interchangeable rubber elements and the brake pedal itself has been designed to take up to 200kg of pressure.
Alongside the performative hardware design decisions, a proprietary RaceHub software can be used to further tweak response and the heel-rest features an RGB LED – RGB all of the things.
The brake and throttle unit is €849, the clutch pedal add-on is €349 and an additional throttle footrest is €39.95. All items are available now to pre-order, with introductory prices of €699 for the throttle and brake and €299 for the clutch pedal provided you order before 28th February.
The first customer orders are expected to ship on 1st March 2022. We’re intrigued as to how Asetek’s sim racing line-up progresses from here.
