Forte® Sim Racing Pedals Brake & Throttle

574,99  Excl. VAT 459,99 

Immerse yourself with the real-life racing inspired Forte Sim Racing Pedals.

By utilizing a M.L.C.P.C (Mechanical Load Cell Powered Cylinder) System, these sim racing pedals pave the way for authentic racing by simulating the sensation of a real race car without going full hydraulic.

The Forte Sim Racing Pedals have been thoroughly tested by both racers and sim enthusiasts, and with that feedback in mind, the pedals are engineered and designed to replicate the real deal and give you that competetive edge.

Inspired by real-life racing

The design of the Forte Pedals is crafted with user experience in mind, featuring color-coded adjustable elements for a quick start and ensuring intuitive and mostly tool-less usage.

The sim racing pedals are highly adjustable, allowing you to channel your inner racer and easily customize the travel and hardness settings to your exact preferences. 

Furthermore, while the Forte Pedals are not hydraulic, they still offer the hydraulic sensation of a fully depressed brake pedal because of the M.L.C.P.C. System. This allows you to pressure modulate and trail brake – thanks to the 2-stage system inspired by the Invicta Pedals. 

The Forte Face Plates are sock-friendly for a comfortable driving experience without sim racing shoes.

THE BENEFITS OF A HARD BRAKE PEDAL

Having a hard brake pedal will allow your muscle memory to be trained to perfection. Muscle memory is the subconscious telling your muscles just the right amount of pressure, leaving your conscious mind to take care of more important things at that moment – like watching traffic or hitting apex.  
 
Your muscle memory system is not wired to remember a position. Try to lift your hand with your eyes closed and reach the same spot within 0,5 mm 10 times in a row, and you will get the point. On the flip side, your muscle memory can memorize a pressure extremely accurately, meaning going around a track, your muscle memory can make you brake the same way again and again. This cannot be achieved with a soft pedal – especially when trail braking.

BRAKE LATER.
GET FASTER.

Furthermore, a hard brake pedal will allow you to brake later. Imagine having a brake pedal with 50 mm (common for many sim racers) of travel versus a brake pedal with almost zero travel.

You are going 300 km/h down a straight. With the long travel brake, it will physically take you perhaps 1/10 of a second more to reach full braking power. On the stiff brake pedal, you will reach maximum braking power instantly.

If you have three hard braking zones on a track, you will gain 3/10 of a second each lap by using a hard brake with minimal travel.

The M.L.C.P.C. brake system gives you an authentic braking sensation without going hydraulic like the Invicta Pedals.

1. Enhanced Control

A hard brake pedal provides you with more control and increases your chances of delivering consistent performances every time.

2. Improve Muscle Memory

An improved use of muscle memory helps you to refine your pedal inputs and thereby establish more consistent braking.

3. Shorter Travel, Later Braking

A hard brake equates to a shorter travel distance, meaning you physically need to move the brake for a shorter duration to gain maximum braking power.

THE M.L.C.P.C.™ SYSTEM

Most mechanical sim racing pedals on the market have an ‘unlimited’ travel, essentially determined by how hard you squeeze the elastomer. Often, the elastomer is overworked (compressed beyond its design), resulting in a spongy and inconsistent brake feel, eventually leading to the elastomer breaking due to being overworked and out of specification.  
 
But, most importantly, with the longer brake pedal travel, you have to brake earlier to build up full brake pressure and lose out on important milliseconds every lap.

To avoid that, the functionality of the M.L.C.P.C System is based on two stages – the soft stage and the hard stage – just like in a real race car and the Invicta Pedals.

THE SOFT STAGE

Real race car:

When you apply pressure on the pedal, it will move 10-20 mm (measured on the pedal plate), while you build up pressure, while the caliper pistons are traveling to and pushing the brake pads against the brake disc, and to compensate for the small amount of play in all the mechanical parts on the pedal system that is required for them not to seize up.

The M.L.C.P.C System:

In our pursuit of creating the most authentic race car feel, we've incorporated a mechanical stop in the M.L.C.P.C. System. That means you can adjust the hardness of the soft stage by changing elastomers, but the travel will be limited to 15-25 mm on the pedal plate (around 12 mm piston travel in the M.L.C.P.C cylinder).

THE HARD STAGE

Real race car:

When hydraulic pressure is built up, the brake pads are squeezing the discs hard and all mechanical play is compensated. In this stage, your foot is basically pressing against a wall, because now your muscles are pressing directly against the hydraulic forces (the brake fluid). Since the fluid cannot be compressed, you will feel the pedal is hard.

When a racecar driver complains about a “long” or a “soft” pedal, it is typically because there is air in the system, and since air CAN be compressed, the pedal will feel soft and long. The mechanics then bleed the brakes for air, meaning there is only fluid left in the system, and the pedal is once again hard after passing the “soft stage”.

The M.L.C.P.C. System:

To simulate the ‘hard stage’ where it feels like pressing against a concrete wall, we have implemented a rubber damper, which will simulate the fully engaged brake caliper but still enable the load cell sensor to measure additional pedal pressure, which makes perfect trail braking possible. This is the same feeling you get in a real race car.

Brake the way you like it

Because the load cell sensor is implemented with a gearing (ratio between pedal pressure and load cell deflection), any user using from the softest elastomer to the hardest elastomer will experience the full load cell resolution of around 4000 points in only 12mm inside the M.L.C.P.C cylinder from released pedal to 2nd stage. That is a resolution of 1/5th of a human hair!

 

By adjusting the piston and thumb lock nut in front of the mechanical brake cylinder, you can adjust the preload of the system to closely mimic the gap you will experience in a real car (between disc and brake pad).

We have made this adjustable, so you can have the feeling just the way you like it – and just like your favorite car. Using the RaceHub software, you can also adjust your dead zone on the brake pedal. This allows you to rest your foot on the pedal without getting inputs to the game.
