Inspired by real-life racing
As well as being inspired by real-life racing, Forte Pedals have been thoroughly tested by both racers and sim racers, and with that feedback in mind, the pedals are engineered and designed.
If you have been looking for the best race car brake pedal feel, without going full hydraulic, look no further! The brake pedal on the Forte pedal set can be adjusted from soft to hard and it will stay that way – unlike many other sim racing pedals on the market, where the hardness and feel will degrade over time. It is not a coincidence a race driver wants a brake pedal, when fully depressed, feels like pushing a wall. Furthermore, Forte while not hydraulic, will still offer you the “hydraulic sensation” of a fully depressed brake pedal, where you can still pressure modulate/trail brake thanks to the 2-stage system inspired by Invicta. In real life it will feel like the brake pedal when pressed 100% and hard, still will react to further pressure like when trying to compress the fluid in a brake system.
Why does it matter? When applying brake pressure as late as possible you want to be able to use muscle memory to replicate that trail brake feeling going into the corner. By using muscle memory your brain is wired to be able to brake at the same spot over and over on the track.
Conversely, if you use a soft pedal, you will have to rely on foot or pedal position, disallowing your brain the ability to replicate with the same accuracy and you will – guaranteed – lose important lap time. Just consider the fact that on a racetrack with 10 corners, gaining or losing 1/10 of a second on the brake, means 1 second on your lap time….
The design on the Forte Pedals is engineered with user-experience in mind, where all adjustable elements are colored to get you started quickly and to ensure intuitive and mostly tool-less usage. The sim pedals are highly adjustable to help you channel your inner race car driver, by changing the travel and hardness settings to your exact preference.
