Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Esports Team discuss the Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Ultimate+

The precision of the throttle pedal and the amazing feel of the brake pedal can give that little edge of confidence which is crucial in racing. Personally, I have found that the recent software update that makes it easier to change the throttle and brake shape which is a massive help when changing between different racing games. Every sim needs different styles and this help a lot with that! The quality and durability of the pedals is amazing.

The Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Ultimate+ are a great tool for us drivers, helping us to extract the most out of ourselves. The best feature probably is that each pedal is fully customisable, which enables us to be much more consistent and helps us perform at the highest level. These pedals are great for anyone who is trying to reach the top of sim racing.

The Heusinkveld Ultimate+ pedals are my favourite in sim racing. Switching to Heusinkveld pedals has made my racing more consistent across the board, regardless of which game I’m driving on. The Heusinkveld pedals let me manipulate the brake pedal more accurately than ever before, allowing me to trail brake smoothly and have a better overall understanding of what my feet are doing in correlation to the car. It’s harder to feel connected to a car in sim racing compared to real life, as you don’t have the ‘seat of your pants’ feeling; but the Heusinkveld pedals definitely bridge that gap.

The SmartControl software is fantastic, as well. It allows me to have completely different pedal presets at the touch of a button, which is important for drivers like myself who compete in Esports on a number of different racing games. Having the right set up is crucial and Heusinkveld’s products have made a huge difference.
