Asetek Simsports Forte Formula Wheel
Inspired by real-life formula cars, the Asetek Forte Formula Wheel has been thoroughly designed by racers and sim racers alike to live up to the feeling of real-life racing and simultaneously adopt sim racing feedback.
With this and other feedback in mind, we started from the ground up and a clean sheet of paper on a mission to create the best possible sim racing formula wheel, but like our other products, without breaking the bank. We are pleased to say that we achieved just that – please meet the Forte® Formula steering wheel!
These ergonomic handles are made with a comfortable, soft, and durable silicone rubber that is easy to clean and disinfect and will give you ultimate comfort and control, regardless of whether you are wearing racing gloves. You can easily change the handles to implement future upgrades, including colour, size, shape, and hardness.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT ASETEK FORTE FORMULA WHEEL
The front face of the wheel is made in a 1mm woven carbon plate, providing a beautiful home for all the buttons and switches.
With 128 individual input options, the Asetek SimSports® Forte® Formula Steering Wheel will, through our RaceHub™, give you the option to customise and map all buttons, switches, encoders, and paddles you need to be on top of your game.
You can control your desired settings by featuring 12 push buttons, two 2-way toggle switches, two 7-way kinky switches, three rotary encoders, and six thumb encoders.
All buttons, switches, and rotaries are of the highest quality standards and thoroughly tested and validated in our automated button testing machines to ensure years and years of reliable daily use.
Backside features, by default, two contactless magnetic shifter paddles for fast and seamless gear shifts. This wheel is easily upgradeable to a dual-clutch for perfect race starts, and two additional mappable paddles that, for example, can be used for effortless overtake and DRS activation. All paddles and associated mechanics are injection moulded with an ultralight and stiff carbon composite material, like the wheel chassis.
Forte® wheel features no less than 49 fully customisable ARGB LEDs, including rev and flag lights – allowing you to customise the look of your steering wheel and help you make those split-second decisions that can make the difference between success and failure.
LEDs can, of course, be adjusted, dimmed, colour customised, and mapped in RaceHub™, with many, many more features to come. Each button and LED can be marked via the provided sticker sheet, giving a backlit label for each function on your wheel.

SIM RACING FORTE FORMULA WHEEL
Many wheels, sim racing or real-life racing, get their strength and rigidity from the front face plate and the handles, often in a closed construction (handlebars are in mechanical connection in both ends). Unfortunately, that also makes them locked in size and design. We use an injection moulded chassis with carbon, glass, and plastic composite material to achieve maximum stiffness, providing high natural rigidity and strength and featuring a laser-etched forged carbon exterior. This allows you, the user, to easily change the handles, add clutches, and DRS paddles, while not relying on the handlebars to provide strength and stiffness.
To add to the overall anti-flex and a proper interface to the removable handles, the chassis features a metal spider interface inside, and altogether it yields a stiff, non-flexing steering wheel where the handles can be changed and upgraded over time to help give you the steering wheel YOU want! For now, we have two different sizes, the default giving a perfect fit and grip for average-size hands and an XL version for larger hands.
