Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Ultimate+ are designed for high-end professional motorsport simulators. A strong, durable and adjustable design capable of handling up to 140kg of actual force at the brake pedal (200kg loadcell). Hydraulic damping on every pedal, custom made elastomers for a progressive brake feel. Reliable load cell sensors coupled to Heusinkveld SmartControl software for an instant and accurate response with endless possibilities to configure pedal output.

“Performance counts, but never forget the joy of simracing”
Enhance your simulator experience. Heusinkveld presents some of the highest quality, most adjustable and most realistic feeling pedals on the market: Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Ultimate+. Trusted by world class GT, single seater and Esports drivers, this high-end pedal set can be used in the most demanding environments. Capable of simulating pedal loads as high as in real GT and F1 cars.
Designed with CAD and FEA, all structural parts are CNC precision laser cut stainless steel with a glass bead blasted finish. The pedals are strong, stiff, compact and durable. Mathematical models were made to calculate pedal travel and operation force, predicting with great accuracy how each pedal feels in every possible configuration.
Design tolerances have been optimized in order to have a minimal amount of play on every assembly. All key pivot points have slide bearings and have gone through automated durability testing to guarantee their functionality after a million duty cycles.
The custom made brake elastomers provide a realistic progressive feel and retain their as-new characteristics even after thousands of races.
The bespoke hydraulic dampers of the Sim Pedals Ultimate are ultra-reliable and do not require periodic maintenance. Even in the unlikely case of a failure, all hydraulic dampers can easily be removed while the pedal still retains its basic functionality as the pedal sensors are separated from the hydraulic circuit.
Sensors & output
The Sim Pedals Ultimate+ load cell assemblies provide a true linear input measurement of throttle and clutch position and brake force. Their accuracy and durability are unmatched as they do not wear over time. Heusinkveld proprietary electronics provide a full-range 12bit output for each pedal. Custom output curves can be freely configured and stored into profiles using the Heusinkveld SmartControl software.
The throttle features a 1-way hydraulic damper which resists speed at the ingoing stroke. This helps with smoothing the throttle application and is also used on many real cars for this purpose. The amount of damping can be adjusted.
A load cell provides a true linear input measurement of the pedal position. Custom non-linear output curves can freely be configured using Heusinkveld SmartControl software.
The brake features a realistic dual stage brake system with a 200kg load cell, capable of handling actual pedal forces up to 140kg (measured at the pedal footplate). The adjustable coil spring simulates the initial pad-to-disc gap. The main brake springs are all new custom made Heusinkveld injection molded thermoset elastomers.
These proprietary elastomers are smooth and responsive and provide an unprecedented progressive brake resistance (convex force curve) just as you would have in a real race car. On the ingoing and outgoing stroke they have firm bump and rebound characteristics.
The brake features a 2-way hydraulic damper. This damping resists speed at the ingoing and outgoing stroke just as experienced in actual brake assemblies. The amount of damping is adjustable.
A clutch feels lighter towards the end of travel. The Sim Pedals Ultimate+ clutch features a regressive spring mechanism simulating this concave force curve and also allows you to greatly adjust the pedal resistance, travel and feel.
The clutch features a 2-way hydraulic damper. This damping resists speed at the ingoing and outgoing stroke just as seen in real clutch assemblies. The amount of damping is adjustable.
A loadcell provides a true linear input measurement of the pedal position. Custom non-linear output curves can freely be configured using Heusinkveld SmartControl software.
Heusinkeld Sim Pedals Ultimate+ use a custom made 12-bit USB controller, which works with Heusinkveld SmartControl software. After calibration every single pedal provides an output signal using the full 12-bit range, providing instant and accurate output to your favorite simulator software.
The controller enclosure is made of steel and is equipped with 4 mounting holes for easy mounting to your simulator. It can also be mounted to the underside of the optional Sim Pedals Ultimate+ Baseplate.
The pedals have passed full EMC compliance testing, guaranteeing a stable output signal regardless of other electronic components used in your simulator.
Our Heusinkveld Ultimate+ come with a powerful configuration tool allowing you to set up your pedals in ways not previously possible: SmartControl. Working together with our own electronics platform, SmartControl allows for instant mapping of (non-linear) pedal output curves, pedal deadzones and brake pedal force.
These adjustments can be made without having to recalibrate the pedals (including iRacing). All settings can be saved into profiles, which can be loaded again in a few mouse clicks.
Brand-new Heusinkveld SmartControl Live is an innovative software tool to adjust your controller settings to your own preferences while driving. Activate SmartControl profiles for different cars and classes at the touch of a button, without having to leave the simulator software.
Shared profiles with other SmartControl compatible products.
If you have other Heusinkveld products which use SmartControl, it is possible to create a single profile which includes multiple devices. This allows you to change handbrake and pedal settings quickly in just a few mouse clicks.
If you want to learn more about SmartControl & SmartControl Live, make sure to check out the overview.
You can find the product manual and tutorial videos in the Support section of our website. A printed manual is included with every pedal set.
For the Sim Pedals Ultimate+ we also offer an optional mounting plate: the Sim Pedals Ultimate+ Baseplate.
Please note that these pedals cannot be installed on a floor without further support, or in a wheel stand where there is no solid connection between the pedals in the seat. A full frame rig/simulator is always required for the Sim Pedals Ultimate+, even if you use the optional Sim Pedals Ultimate+ Baseplate.
The Sim Pedals Ultimate+ can be used in the following driving simulator environments:
For professional driver training.
For home use (eg. eSports simulators, simracing enthusiasts).
In commercial applications (eg. rental simulators).
This product is supported on PC’s with Windows 10 or newer. It is not supported on Linux or consoles such as Xbox or Playstation.
The pedals are pre-calibrated (plug-and-play). If you want to use SmartControl to recalibrate or adjust certain pedal settings, you need to run Windows 10 or newer.
Sim Pedals Ultimate+ are CE certified, including having passed EMC compliance testing.
