At the heart of Next Level Racing®, is a focus on innovation and extensive feedback from the global sim racing community. As a result, Next Level Racing® is excited to launch the Wheel Stand 2.0 using many years of experience and feedback, taking the original wheel stand to the Next Level.
“2021 has been an exciting year for us so far, and we are excited to take the Wheel Stand 1.0, which was a category leader when it came to the market, and take that to a new level using the many years of feedback from the community and our customers. The Wheel Stand 2.0 introduces a new level of quality, stability, adjustability, and functionality. Next Level Racing® is excited to have worked hard to give our customers all the extras and benefits at the same price as the original wheel stand. The Wheel Stand 2.0 is designed to fit straight into the NLR ecosystem, allowing our customers to start at the wheel stand 2.0 and completely upgrade to a complete motion simulator experience. It’s important for us to provide an upgrade path for our community and users.” – Hess Ghah, CEO of Next Level Racing
With 10 years of extensive feedback from the sim racing community on numerous popular Next Level Racing® cockpits such as the original Wheel Stand, Racer, Lite, and also Wheel Stand DD, Next Level Racing® has ticked all the boxes to provide customers with all-new features and functionality in the innovative Wheel Stand 2.0. From the new robotic manufacturing process of laser-cut carbon steel to improve rigidity, to the redesign and added adjustability of the chassis for extra functionality, sim racers will be treated to an even greater driving experience with Wheel Stand 2.0.
The new Next Level Racing® Wheel Stand 2.0 brings a raft of new and exciting features that sim racers have demanded. The new gear shifter and handbrake mount offers Left and Right-hand driving positions and is also height and angle adjustable. The wheel plate and pedal tray also offer precise tilt and height adjustment and added rigidity, and are pre-drilled for Logitech®, Thrustmaster®, and Fanatec®.
Next Level Racing® ‘s engineers have also spared no focus to offer maximum compatibility for the Wheel Stand 2.0 through innovation from customer feedback. The new and included Next Level Racing® Gaming Chair Cradle allows users to integrate their gaming chair with the Wheel Stand 2.0, eliminating extreme movement and the chair rolling away under heavy braking and driving conditions.
Hess Ghah, CEO of Next Level Racing said – “Not only is the Wheel Stand 2.0 fully upgradeable with our ecosystem of accessories, but the new Gaming Chair Cradle also offers racers an extra dimension of immersion and functionality– a solid option for many sim racers.”
The Next Level Racing® Wheel Stand 2.0 is also upgradable within the Next Level Racing® ecosystem. With the addition of the Next Level Racing® GTSeat Add-On, the Wheel Stand 2.0 transforms into a full cockpit. The Wheel Stand 2.0 when upgraded to a full cockpit is also fully compatible with Next Level Racing® Motion Platforms, as well as the full range of Free-Standing Next Level Racing® Accessories for a more immersive sim racing experience.
The Next Level Racing® Wheel Stand 2.0 is available from October 2021 through global retailers, including those in Europe (229 Euro VAT included), North America ($249 USD), Australia ($349 AUD) and UK (179 GBP VAT included).
