OpenWheeler® Racing Simulator Seat / Wheel Stand Now Available in a Variety of Colors
The OpenWheeler Advanced Racing Seat works with every popular racing wheel on the market. The seat is extremely stable and offers two versions one with a stick shift mount and one without. The Stick Shift mount can be mounted on the left or right hand side of the cockpit. The bucket racing seat itself feels like it’s pulled right out of a race car and it is upholstered in Polyester. The seat was made for total adjustment and control. It weighs just over 50 lbs and is one of the lightest sim racing seats on the market.
Openwheeler Advanced Racing Seat Driving Simulator
This racing seat overall is a popular option on the market no matter if you race Playstation 4 Playstation 3, Playstation 2, Playstation 1, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Xbox, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Game Cube, N64, Sega or PC. They do a really good job of accommodating all of the different wheels by making special mounting plates and offering different versions of the seat depending on your need.
Able To Make Fine Adjustments For Comfort
This seat was engineered with the racer in mind. Nobody wants to play a racing game and get up with a sore back or stiff legs. They designed this seat so you can fit it to your body and play your racing games for hours at a time.
I would say that anyone between 4’5 and 6’8 would fit comfortably in this seat. There is no wait limit listed, but given my experience with reviewing racing seats, I would say no more than a 275 lb person should use this seat.
Wheels for Moving to Storage
While this seat doesn’t pack up very compact, it does however have a neat feature. It has wheels you can attach to the front under the pedals so you can lift up the back of the chair and easily push it around. This makes it very easy to move to a storage room or walk in closet.
This seat also has the option to add on a lumbar support pad. This will help make your back more comfortable for longer hours or make the chair more suitable if you already have a bad back. This is one of the only cockpit chairs that offers a lumbar support pad made for the chair.
Gear Shifter Mount
Depending on which version of the seat you buy, they don’t all come with the gear sifter mount. If you don’t have a shifter now and want to add on later, you can get the gearbox mount separate.
One of the best deign features of the mount is that it can be mounted on the left or right side of the seat frame and you can move it towards or away from the seat.

Openwheeler Racing Seat Review – Warp Up
The OpenWheeler Advanced is definitely a great racing seat. It is one of the most comfortable sim racing chairs on the market. It is priced competitively and I would rate it as one of the best in it’s class. The three things that stand out most to me about this seat: comfort, stability, and the color options.
Some people are always concerned that the center column will impede your legs particularly if you like to do left foot braking, but it is honestly not an issue. The way the seat is designed and the ability to make adjustments truly lets you work around the center column. You won’t even notice it.
If you are looking to take your racing setup to the next level, this is a great racing seat. The fact that is also works with all of the poplar wheels and consoles, it makes this a very flexible solution for any serious or casual racing game fan.
