From the Manufacturer
The Simraceway SRW-S1 Steering Wheel is a high-performance, handheld PC racing wheel co-designed by SteelSeries and Ignite Technologies. The portable, motion-sensor wheel features a patented throttle and brake lever system that offers a fully simulated racing experience within hands reach. The wheel has been tested and is used by top ranked Indy 500 race car drivers and Simracing World Champions.
Plug it in. Choose your game. Play. Sure, you can customize every button, but only if you want to. There is no complicated configuration required when used with Simraceway and most PC racing games.
The wheel's unique design means you can take it everywhere and use it anywhere. There are no pedal sets or bulky seats. The Simraceway SRW-S1 is a handheld joypad and wheel combined that brings a true-to-life race setup to your laptop or desktop computer.
The Simraceway SRW-S1 can be used with any PC racing game on the market including Simraceway, DiRT, and Need for Speed Shift. Some features, including the Assists dials and the shift indicator LEDs, may not be compatible with certain titles.
Stay in Control
Everything you need, from brake balance controls to assist setting dials, are always in reach. No other wheel on the market combines this level of customization and functionality.
You can experience full-range acceleration and braking on the back of the SRW-S1 Wheel. The right paddle--for acceleration/throttle--allows you the ability to vary the amount of throttle input, from feathering to fully depressing it for maximum acceleration. The paddle on the left--for braking/stopping--allows you the ability to vary the amount of braking input from, feathering to fully depressing for full braking force.
Brake Balance Control
Brake balance control (aka "brake bias") allows you to change the brake balance to the front or rear of the vehicle. If a driver were to hit the brakes with a rear brake bias, he is more likely to spin out of control. However, if a driver were to hit the brakes with a front brake bias, his is more likely losing his ability to steer into a corner. A balance must be found. We have a button for that.
Get a Grip
The rubberized wheel grips have an ergonomic shape that allows you to keep a comfortable grasp to steer as you move around the controller to brake, accelerate, shift, look back, request a pit stop and everything else in order to drive and win.
While the wheel comes preconfigured to operate seamlessly with Simraceway, many of its controls can be customized, so you can program them to match your driving--and gaming--preferences.
What's Your Style?
The SRW-S1 wheel adapts to your driving style based on the way you steer. You’re going to do it in 1 of 3 ways: Over-steer, under-steer and neutral.
Over-Steer: Drivers who prefer over-steer like to have the rear of the car loose and the front dialed in. This allows drivers to use the throttle to correct their driving line or to use it to aid in steering. It also means there is more risk of losing control. Under-Steer: Drivers who prefer under-steer like to have the rear of the car dialed in and the front loose. While it becomes harder to make a turn at higher speeds, it does provide stability and reduces the chances of losing control. Neutral: Drivers who prefer a neutral setup like to have both the rear and the front of the vehicle dialed in. This allows drivers to compromise between over-steer and under-steer.
Used by the Pros
The SRW-S1 Steering Wheel has been tested and approved by professional racing drivers including Dario Franchitti and the late Indy 500 Champion Dan Wheldon, as well as SimRacing World Champions, David Greco and Bruno Marques.
Top Customer Reviews
Frankly, I didn't think I'd like it very much. I requested it before I realized what it was. I thought it was a steering wheel with a steering column you attach to a desk, similar to my Logitech Driving Force steering wheel. It's actually an accelerometer... and you hold the wheel, unattached to anything, and with no feedback, just rotate it. The pedals are large paddles, and the gear shifters are smaller clicky paddles.
I've played Mario Kart with a wiimote, and thought it was a bit of a gimmick, so I expected this to be the same. It's really much better, though.
For one, the accuracy is excellent. Despite the lack of feedback, this is a precise way to steer. I can adjust the sensitivity with a knob, so with a couple of adjustments, I was getting the car to do exactly what I want. The way they designed the 'pedals' (paddles) makes for very accurate braking and throttle, so I can easily feather the throttle for drifting and oversteer control. It really is excellent for what it sets out to do. You can control a car with the same precision you'd expect from a more traditional game steering wheel. No exaggeration.
I also found the controller to be built well. For the price, I would expect the controller to be solid, with proper response from buttons and paddles and knobs. It all feels very well built. The gear shifters produce a satisfying click, the buttons produce a satisfying thump, and the knobs all are great. The USB cable is probably the most sturdy data cable I've ever seen. I could probably use this steering wheel as a grappling hook without breaking it.Read more ›
This is a niche product for a niche market kind of game that I think will work with some other games, but I haven't had a chance to check those out just yet. I mention this because I found the simraceway game to have a pretty steep learning curve in that there really is no apparent tutorial that I could find. There are testing tracks and ways to practice, but they leave a lot to be desired. It was fun of course. It has been a long time since I tried to sink my teeth into a racing game, and I am probably a hardcore gamer by definition, just not in this area.
Some things to note, this controller came without a disc which means you have to download the game from the website. Not only that, in order to get the game, you have to sign up for an account with them and then you get to download the game. It's a fairly good size download, about 1.15 gigs and it took about 16 minutes to download. I have a pretty good connection, so that was attributed to their server and size. My downloads from Steam and other services seems a bit speeder. Overall, between signing up account, downloading, installing it took about 30 minutes to get started. I also use Win 7 so there were no issues with finding the device and getting going. This isn't a complaint, just a potential issue for someone not prepared to have to get online and spend time there, say someone in our armed forces.
In terms of size, I find this controller to be a bit on the big size for comfort.Read more ›
However, the after playing with your sensitivity settings and tweaking it, the accelerometers do a hell of a job giving you precise, immediate control. Obviously there's no force feedback or any of that, it would have been nice to have some sort of vibration though, but not crucial. The paddles on the back, which take care of acceleration and braking, are also very precise, though I wish they had a stronger or adjustable spring return, just for a little more positive pressure.
There are loads of buttons on this thing, and they're set up for one specific racing title (Simraceways), which admittedly I didn't play too much of. Most of my driving was in F1 2010/2011 and Dirt 3. Since the buttons are labeled it was pretty easy to translate which ones I wanted to handle which tasks in those games.
Overall, though, the thing looks pretty cool. Honestly it's a tad embarrassing to have a giant force feedback wheel sitting near your desk, they're bulky and get in the way. This little guy can go up on a shelf when not in use and just looks like racing memorabilia which is a nice little bonus. I do wish it came with a rotating stand, though, something it could mount to when you're playing a game to give you that fixed axis that most racing gamers are used to.
