The Simucube 2 Sport is a very capable and well priced Direct Drive wheel base, perfect for sim racers upgrading from Logitech / Thrustmaster / Fanatec belt drive wheels who seek a realistic and powerful Direct Drive sim racing wheel. The Simucube 2 Sport not only offers abundantly more torque (17Nm of this Sport variant is the 'weakest' of the range) but also the Direct Drive aspect of the wheelbase offers much more detailed feedback. The combination of the strength and 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. 

Included in the box with the Simucube 2 Sport is:

  • Simucube 2 Sport wheel base
  • Power supply (UK specification)
  • Standard Remote Torque off button
  • Power cables, Remote torque off cable, USB cable
  • Quick start guide

Manufacturer description:

Technical specification

Sport comes with 17 Nm of direct drive torque and Simucube 2 benefits. This wheel base is a match for Sim Racing enthusiasts. SC2 Sport delivers serious amounts of juice to bring up adrenaline filled sweat to the skins of the drivers. Sport has comparable responsiveness and signal processing of the top-end models of world famous Simucube 1.

Sport will be your key to the club of sim racing champions.

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 Sport 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.
