Monoprice, the online American retailer specialising in electronics and cables for home-based applications has announced a move into the sim racing market with a wheel stand and triple-screen monitor mounting solution.
Respectively named the Dark Matter GT Foldable Racing Stand and Dark Matter GT Triple Racing Mount, both items are available now from Monoprice’s website.
The wheel stand in particular should appeal to a large percentage of sim racers given its low price and foldability, with Monoprice taking on the likes of Playseat and Next Level Racing’s in the entry-level wheel stand market.
Monoprice Dark Matter GT Foldable Racing Stand
Monoprice has moved into the competitive sim racing peripheral scene with its all-metal GT Foldable Racing Stand.
Featuring four-way adjustable wheel and pedal plates to accommodate as many wheel, pedal and seat combinations as possible, the GT Foldable Racing Stand features a detachable gear shift mount that can be fitted to either the left or right of your wheel.
It also boasts pre-drilled mounting points to suit most wheels, gear shifters and pedals, although we’d advise getting in touch with Monoprice if you have any specific queries concerning compatibility.
Weighing in at 20kg, the GT Foldable Racing Stand is available to purchase now for $109.99 (before taxes and shipping) and naturally provides a convenient solution for sim racers lacking in space thanks to its compactness when collapsed.
Monoprice Dark Matter GT Triple Racing Mount
Monoprice has also released a monitor mounting solution for triple screens, called the Dark Matter GT Triple Racing Mount. The monitor stands can hold three screens of up to 32 inches with a maximum weight of 10kg each. Alternatively, it can hold a single monitor of up to 49 inches.
Tall enough to be used in conjunction with a desk and with a profile low enough to be used with a cockpit, the GT Triple Racing Mount’s metal construction features foldable wings and support for 75×75, 100×100, 200×100 and 200×200 VESA mount sizes.
The Dark Matter GT Triple Racing Mount is available to purchase now from Monoprice’s website for $199.99 before taxes and shipping.
