About

Until now, you needed big sponsors or a bank account worth millions to climb into the cockpit of a Formula 1 racer, a Nascar racing car or a jet. Now you can get the real feeling of racing and flying for a fraction of the cost!

The Speedmaster racing seat offers perfect ergonomics and the feeling of a high-speed race, but adds a new dimension to the experience.

The Speedmaster S was developed as a classical seat for racing games, the Speedmaster Flight was made for playing flight simulations and the Speedmaster S-Motion adds a motion feature to your gaming.  

Solid processing and perfect ergonomics for a breathtakingly realistc gaming experience.

The Speedmaster S was designed from scratch and is manufactured with state of the art technology. The rigid and sturdy frame is made out of powder-coated, tubular steel.

The distinct nose as well as the rear diffusor underline the overall sleek design.

Our gaming seat was designed with ergonomics and adjustability in mind. Every driver has a different size and physique, making it mandatory to have the gaming rig as adjustable as possible. The seat of the Speedmaster S can be moved backwards and forwards through a sliding feature and a tiltable back rest, just like you know from a car.

To ensure that almost every driver has a perfect fit, we ensured that you have multiple options to adjust your periphery. The position of the steering wheel and shifter can be suited to your seating position, the pedal plate has an adjustable tilt as well.

In order to give you one of the best experiences possible, powerful motors move the seat of the Speedmaster S-Motion without delay. This way, you feel every curve, every braking maneuver - and the g-forces tug straight at you.


 
In contrast to conventional motion gaming seats, we do not move the whole frame, but only the seat itself. This gives an even more direct response and makes for a realistic experience during acceleration, steering and braking.

 

Compared to other motion gaming seats on the market, the Speedmaster S-Motion comes at the fraction of the price - without any compromises in features or performance!
 

The price is a real sensation on the gaming seat market. Speedmaster S-Motion only costs a small part of what you generally pay for a comparable unit – without having to accept any smears for equipment or performance!

A monocoque, designed for heavy use in races: A rigid frame of oversized, 30mm diameter tubular steel. No clattering, no rattle - Race feeling only! Whether the driver makes it through the 24 hours of LeMans is not a matter of the equipment anymore, it is down to the endurance of the driver.

Using a pair of VR goggles with the Speedmaster S-Motion blurs the line between fiction and reality - Get the real feeling of a race in your home.

The Speedmaster S-Motion is basically compatible with all major racing and flight games on the PC. The independently developed, S-Motion tailored third-party software is continuously updated with new compatible titles as they are released and the list of compatible games continues to grow as we speak.

For those who want to order our Add On products:  

Since Kickstarter doesn't allow a backer to have more than one reward, you may add the amount of the Add On to your chosen reward.

For example: If you're getting a 'Speedmaster S - Without Motion' (320€), just add 90€ for the TV Stand 1 Slot. So your total pledge would now be  410€. Please inform us by messaging us privately of the breakdown of your order so that we may take note of it. We would then include the Add On to your order.

For reaching 200K Euros, we'll make sure that we add some color to the Speedmaster S-Motion. The community can vote on a color for the frame and seat.

You want another seat? You'll get it! If we reach 400K in funding, the community can decide on another type of seat for the Speedmaster S-Motion.

Alright, this is the next level. Thanks to your efforts, we will get back to the drawing board and tune the motion technology to the demands of virtual pilots everywhere.

  

MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITY: In order to produce the Speedmaster S-Motion with our quality manufacturer who has international experience with major brands, we need to give them a production order large enough so they are willing to produce the racing seat at a cost that will make it affordable for most consumers.

Also please feel free to email us directly at info@speedmasterseats.com or leave a message if you have any questions.

Risks and challenges

Delivering the Speedmaster on time is really, really important to us.

Hardware products are heavily dependent on budget and manufacturing time. We've been working with our manufacturers for months to align our expectations for delivery.

Although it is difficult to plan for every unforeseen circumstance, such as political or economic eents that might delay production or delivery, we've created contingency plans should these types of problems arise.

Nevertheless, we are certain that we will face unexpected challenges throughout this journey and will do our best to solve them as quickly as possible. We pledge to keep our backers well-informed in a timely manner throughout the entire production process and to do everything we can to deliver the Speedmaster to you as planned.
