Simagic has released details on its latest GT Sport sim racing wheel today, showcasing its versatile, circular 300mm chassis.
Chinese sim racing peripheral manufacturer Simagic has today (25th November 2022) released details of its new GT Sport wheelrim.
Pitched as an all-in-one sim racing solution, the GT Sport is a comfortable 300mm wide, featuring adjustable hall effect gearshift paddles, two seven-way switches, two rotary encoders, seven RGB-adorned buttons and an LED rev strip.
For sim racers with a tactile preference, the wheel will be manufactured in both Alcantara and leather coverings (Alcantara costs an extra $/€20). In terms of couplings, the GT Sport uses Simagic’s proprietary QR50 quick-release system.
The wheelrim is made of a magnesium-aluminium alloy, weighing 1.45kg, with 128 button stickers included for optimal customisation. Thanks to its circular shape, the GT Sport should work well as a rally, drift, touring car and sportscar rim.
The manufacturer’s claim of it being ideal for open-wheel racing seems a stretch, however, because of its width and shape.
The Simagic is available to pre-order from the company’s regional distributors now, priced at $/€339 (leather) and $/€359 (Alcantara). Prices exclude shipping costs and tax.
