High-end servo motor developed with Simucube and Mige

Asetek have pulled out all the stops when it comes to producing the Forte direct drive wheelbase. Partnering with market leaders Simucube and Mige, Asetek has developed a high-end servo motor.

After thousands of man-hours of development from the ground-up including electronics, software, firmware, mechanics, cooperation, design, test, and validation, the Forte 18Nm direct drive wheelbase is here. And it produces the most silky-smooth, immersive and realistic force feedback around.

Bolt this wheelbase to your rig and you won’t be able to wipe the smile off your face.

Ultra-realistic and immersive force feedback

All Asetek SimSports wheelbases provide smooth, super responsive, and precise feedback to the driver, where you will feel even the smallest bumps and curbs on the road.

For example, each of our wheelbases has a resolution of 0,000085 degrees or roughly 4,000,000 steps in just one revolution of the wheel. With an Asetek SimSports wheelbase you get a true high-fidelity driver experience.

Compact, anodized aluminium housing

The Asetek Forte direct drive wheelbase packs incredible specs and looks great, too.

The Forte housing is just 30cm long (including the quick release). So, not only is the Forte direct drive wheelbase amongst the most powerful and realistic direct drive wheelbases on the market, it’s also compact.

With front and side mount options, you can bolt this wheelbase to practically any racing cockpit including brands like Trak Racer and Next Level Racing.

Asetek SimSports quick release

All Asetek wheelbases include the easy-to-use SimSports quick release. To disconnect the wheel from the base, all you have to do is to press a paddle and the wheel will be in your hands.

There’s reliance on wireless signals, batteries that need to be charged, or cables that can break or fall off. Everything is included in the zero-play quick release.

PC plug-and-play with RaceHub

Just plug your new Asetek wheelbase into your PC, fire-up the RaceHub software, calibrate your wheel and start racing.

RaceHub is easily the most sophisticated peripheral software on the market today. You can quickly and easily setup and save profile pre-sets, customize your settings to fit your car, track, and conditions. You can also adjust steering range, bump stop hardness, and bump stop range, adjust overall force, basic damping, and basic smoothing.

Full-featured Formula racing wheel

Inspired by real-life formula cars, the Asetek Simsports Forte Formula wheel has been thoroughly designed by racers and sim racers alike to live up to the feeling of real-life racing.

The Forte Formula wheel includes ergonomic handles, 12 push buttons, 2 two-way toggle switches, 2 seven-way Kinky switches, 3 twelve position rotary encoders, 6 thumb encoders and 2 contactless magnetic shifter paddles. Plus, you’ve got the option to add-on more paddles.

Asetek wheelbases and wheels are backed by a 2 year limited warranty. This warranty covers you against manufacturer defects and faults

If for some reason your Asetek wheelbase does not perform as expected or in the rare event you experience a system failure, simply contact us and we'll repair your item under warranty.

Please note that this warranty covers manufacturer defects and faults only and does not cover normal wear and tear or misuse.

You might have some questions about shipping times and costs. So, let’s cover some of those questions for you.

How long will it take for my order to arrive?

We’ve partnered with Australia’s fastest couriers to make sure you get your order FAST.

99% of our orders are shipped within one business day. That means if you order on a Monday, we’ll usually ship same day or the next business day (Tuesday).

Your order will usually arrive in 3 to 5 business days. Of course, this depends on where you’re located. If you live in a metro area, you can expect your order to arrive within 3 days.

If you live outside a metro area, you order will usually take a little longer to arrive. We recommend you allow 5 business days for your order to arrive.

The moment your order is on the way, we’ll send you tracking details via email. That means you’ll be able to keep an eye on your order and see where it is at any point in time.

Of course, if you have any questions or queries in relation to your order, simply email us, call (03) 9961 0240 or open the live chat function. We’ll help you in any way we can.

How much is shipping?

Shipping costs depend on item weight and shipping destination. We’ll do everything we can to ensure you receive the best shipping rates available.

Shipping is calculated in checkout. Simply fill in your address details and our shipping calculator will show the final shipping cost.

A lot of items we sell include free shipping. If an item is labelled free shipping, you won’t pay a single cent for shipping.

What if I’m not home when my order arrives?

No stress. If you’re not home, our couriers will drop your order off at the nearest depot or post office. 

Contact details will be left at your door or in your mailbox so you can organise redelivery.

Hey what gives, it’s been more than a week and my order hasn’t arrived. Where is it?

No worries. The first thing we recommend you do is check your tracking details. It may just be that your order was held up a little.

If your tracking details don’t shed any light on where your order is, contact us on (03) 9961 0240 and we’ll help work out where your order is.

If you’ve clicked on this tab, you’re obviously looking for a reason or two on why you should shop for your gaming goodies at Gamer Gear Direct, rather than those other online stores.

And we’ll (not so) humbly say there are SEVEN reasons we think you should shop with us and not hand over your hard-earned cash at one of those big box retailers like Harvey Norman or JB Hi-Fi. 

REASON #1: 100% customer satisfaction GUARANTEED (if you’re not happy then neither are we – simple as that)

We’ll bend over backwards to ensure you are 100% happy and satisfied with your order and our world-class customer service. We want you to rave about your experience with us to your friends and family.

But we know that’ll only happen if we treat every customer like you’re the most important customer in the world. And you are! Without you we wouldn’t be in this business. We’ve only got to where we are today by treating our customers to a high level of service that you’ll rarely find online.

We’ll literally bend over backwards to ensure your experience with us is one you’ll shout about to your neighbour or mates at work. See, we’re not one of those big box electronics stores with a multi-million marketing budget. Those companies treat you like a number. Because they can afford to! They’ve got money coming out of their ears.

We’re different. We’re a small Aussie owned and operated business. Every single potential customer that hits our website is precious to us (that includes you). So, again, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you’re over the moon with your Gamer Gear Direct shopping experience.

Do you think Harvey Norman can promise that kind of service?

Probably not. In fact, I’d bet my house they won’t. But look, you don’t have to take my word for it. Here’s what our customers are saying about us…

Ashley Woolnough says: ‘I want to say a huge thank you to Blake and the team at Gamer Gear Direct. The service has been absolutely impeccable from the moment I first looked at items to the moment they were delivered. I bothered Blake quite a bit, but nothing was too much trouble and he went above and beyond to help me. 5-star service’.

Luke H. had this to say: ‘Amazing, Excellent Service. I'm very impressed. Well informed staff and good quality selection of Sim Racing gear. Staff even went above and beyond to answer a query regarding whether a certain set of pedals would properly mount to a specific cockpit by testing it themselves on my behalf. Delivery is ridiculous fast and free. Less than 24 hour delivery to Sydney NSW which is impressive. Definitely my go to place for all future gear'.

And this from Brendan: ‘Hands down the best online supplier in Australia atm. Customer service is above an beyond any other Australian company. Blake is always happy to try an keep the customer as happy as possible an with the best deal. I will be back...a forever shop and first stop when hunting any sim upgrade.’

That’s not an exhaustive list, either. There are plenty more happy customer stories we could share with you. But let’s move on to reason number two…

REASON #2: Five-star customer support

We’re around to support you and help you out with your questions and queries between normal business hours (Mon to Fri, 9am to 5pm).

We understand a lot of our customers (like you) are busy individuals.
Sometimes, you’ve only got time to peruse our website when you’re sitting down on the couch, chilling out after a hard day at work (maybe with a cold beverage in hand).

If you need a hand with anything, or you’ve got a question. Just tap on the live chat widget (at the bottom right of screen), email us ( or call on (03) 9961 0240.

REASON #3: Shop with confidence thanks to our 30 day return policy

The moment you buy anything (yes, anything!) from Gamer Gear Direct you’re automatically covered by our 30-day return policy.

Buy today and if your item is not performing as it should or is faulty just return inside those first 30 days, in 'as new' condition for a refund or exchange. Please note that our return policy does not cover 'change of mind' purchases. 

On top of our 30-day return policy, you’re also covered by a manufacturers’ warranty. Every product we sell is covered by a MINIMUM 6-month warranty (most are covered by a 1 year or better warranty).

When you buy from us, you’re buying top quality, brand name products (no crap ‘grey import’ products here), that’ll do exactly what they say on the box.

You'll find more details on our return policy HERE.

REASON #4: We’re competitive on our prices. If you see a Gamer Gear Direct product cheaper online, contact us and we’ll see if we can work out a deal

That doesn’t mean we’ll always beat the competition on price. Some of the big-name stores bulk up big time on products. We’re still competitive, but may not have the margin to beat them.

That aside, our prices are easily some of the cheapest you’ll find online. Plus, when you bundle several items together, we’re more than happy to chat about a bundle discount

Hit us up and we’ll chat more about price (you can open the chat widget at the bottom right of screen and start a conversation).

REASON #5: Fast shipping Australia wide

When you’re shopping online, you want your order delivered fast, right? We understand. That’s why 99% of our orders are shipped within one to two business days from the time you order.

Your order will usually arrive at your doorstep within 3 to 5 business days from the day you ordered. Doesn’t matter whether you order a 50kg racing simulator cockpi
