The Simucube 2 Pro is positioned in the middle of the range Simucube 2 wheel base, more powerful than the Sport but less powerful than the Ultimate. The Simucube 2 Pro offers a fantastic 25Nm peak torque (over 40% higher peak torque than the Simucube 2 Sport) at a competitive price versus the competition. For any sim racer wanting a high powered Direct Drive wheel offering extremely detailed feedback at a price that is very competitive for the specification, the Simucube 2 Pro is an excellent choice. The combination of the abundant levels of torque and the clarity of the Direct Drive feedback ultimately results in a highly realistic driving experience, making these Direct Drive motors a must have for sim racers seeking an authentic experience. We stock the R2 version with 1 power supply. The Simucube 2 Pro is perfect for sim racers who want an ultra-realistic sim racing experience, and as such it is a very popular choice. 

Included in the box with the Simucube 2 Pro is:

  • Simucube 2 Pro wheel base
  • 1 x Power supply (R2 Single PSU Update)
  • Standard Remote Torque off button
  • Power cables, Remote torque off cable, USB cable
  • Quick start guide

Manufacturer description:


Technical specification

25 Nm of torque is enough to give you deep immersion with any track, car and condition. With Pro one might forget they are in simulation.

Combined with exceptionally high torque response rate Pro motor, the sharpest kinks will be delivered at a clarity not seen in Direct Drive scene before. Torque response rate is adjustable to driver's preferences.

Simucube 2 Pro is here to set the new gold standard for high-end class Direct Drive wheels.


Full metal construction

The body of Simucube 2 has been built from precision machined solid metal parts. It’s pretty hard to find a plastic part in it – pretty much the only non-metallic one is the “radiofrequency window” for Wireless Wheel Receiver.


Robotics grade angle sensor

Simucube 2 Pro is equipped with precision industrial robotics grade angle sensors with a resolution of  4 Million steps per revolution. The quality of the angle sensor information has paramount importance when calculating natural physics effects and filters. Any imperfection of the sensor signal would feel like a distortion in reality. All Simucube 2’s signal processing units have been optimized to take full advantage of the unmatched sensor precision.


Direct Drive brushless torque motor

This is a very special one. Simucube developer team compared over 40 motors, hand-tested over ten of them, then picked the best three motors, and finally customized them to suit absolutely flawlessly in direct drive racing simulation. SC2’s latest generation motor technology delivers unforeseen torque response rate and clarity. FEM optimized motor magnetic design yields practically zero torque ripple and magnetic cogging. Simucube 2 ‘s are also individually tested and verified to exceed inhumanly tight tolerances in production.


Isolated surge protected USB

No Simucube driver shall ever become the victim of interference prone USB connection. Thanks to a galvanic isolation layer between the USB and power electronics. This also protects the PC from current spikes. In addition, all connectors found on the back of SC2 are ESD protected exceeding the industrial requirements.

Dual CPU architecture

To unleash the full potential of the glorious motor and to process signals at maximum precision, Simucube 2 has been given a dedicated 216 MHz real-time processor in addition to a dedicated 144 MHz PC USB interface CPU. Unique dual CPU architecture ensures zero impact on ultra-low latency performance even when all processing and simulator actions are running simultaneously. The new 216 MHz processor features superscalar ARM architecture, making it effectively four times faster than the 72 MHz processors of IONI drive in Simucube 1.


Passive cooling

Thanks to high-efficiency direct-drive operation optimized motors and clever electronics heat guiding, there is no dust collecting nor noisy fans in Simucube 2. High-efficiency motor puts out less heat and consumes less power.

Oversized rugged power components

All Simucube 2’s electronics have been designed in Finland by Granite Devices – also known from their reliable industrial motor drives. Simucube has been proudly built with the same uncompromising industrial quality principles. This means prioritizing ruggedness and longevity over the cost of the components. Simucube 2 power MOSFETs are rated over 2X their actual need to make them virtually immortal.


Remote Torque off button

Because high torque may pose a hazard if the simulator software goes nuts, or if the driver becomes careless with the high torque wheel, every SC2 comes with an externally mountable Torque off button. Optionally the button box may be upgraded to a stylish all-metal version with an additional external power-switch.
