The Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Sprint set new standards for simulator pedal systems. As well as a new look, the Sprint pedals have had a complete overhaul in every aspect. A worthy successor to the highly acclaimed Sim Pedals Pro which they replace.
- Provides up to 64kg/141lbs of braking force with a custom made load cell
- SmartControl software enables you to set up your pedals exactly how you want them
- Lightweight and compact design to enable you to fit them to a wide range of simulators
- Custom made throttle and clutch spring which provide the best pedal feel
- New brake load cell detection mechanism which features a smaller leaver actuated load cell sensor
Sim Pedals Sprint benefit from a compact design to allow for fitting in a wide range of simulators. Constructed from lightweight aluminium, they are capable of a large range of adjustment for mounting on a number of different angles depending on your application. They can be angled from -25 degrees backwards to -5 degrees forwards. This allows for a comfortable pedal position for most seating positions.
The bearing and pivot systems for each pedal have had an overhaul with a view to greater reliability and wear characteristics. The new solutions reduce metal-to-metal friction and play in the pedal arms. The end result is a pedal which feels as tight and accurate after many years of heavy use as it does straight out of the box. Each pedal has uniquely designed end stops at both the resting and fully depressed ends of travel. This not only improves the reliability, it also makes for quieter operation.
The Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Sprint are available as a 3 pedal or 2 pedal set for those not requiring a clutch. A single clutch pedal is also available for converting a 2-pedal set into a 3-pedal set at a later date.
The throttle pedal features a custom spring which is adjustable for travel, pre-load and spring stiffness. This provides the very best in pedal feel along with improved reliability.
The brake pedal has undergone some major changes, particularly in the form of a new load detection mechanism. Rather than having the pedal acting directly onto a large load cell sensor, the new mechanism features a smaller, lever actuated, custom load cell sensor. This is capable of providing up to 64kg/141lbs of braking force which is 9kg more than their predecessor.
The pedal also features a 2-stage braking system which simulates the pad-to-disc gap as felt on real race cars by utilising an additional metal coil spring. The brake pedal is also supplied with several rubbers which have a compound unique to Heusinkveld. This allows for a greater range of brake stiffness settings to suit your requirements.
Just as real clutch pedals become lighter after they pass the clutch bite point, so too does the clutch pedal in the Sim Pedals Sprint. A custom designed spring allows for a more prominent concave feel pedal curve for even better realism.
The electronics are now enclosed within the brake pedal rather than a separate control box. Simply connect the throttle and clutch pedal to the brake pedal which, in turn, connects to the PC with a single USB lead.
Once you have connected your pedals to your PC, you can then use the powerful SmartControl software to set up your pedals just how you want them. Within the software you are able to configure non-linear pedal output curves, deadzones and brake pedal force. You can even create multiple profiles. For a less sensitive throttle pedal for wet weather conditions, or change the bite point of the clutch for a specific car, you can set this up and switch between them with the click of a button. What’s more, all of this can be done without having to recalibrate the pedals in your chosen software. There are several pre-set profiles already included with the software, but you can tune these to your own requirements.
