Match the physical position of a F1 driver and feel like you’re stepping into a real formula car instead of your family vehicle. The elevated pedal position gives you the ability to be even more consistent with your braking pressure.

“This seating position screams speed!
I’m able to brake so much better now! It’s a true masterpiece!”

FLEX..? WHAT FLEX??!!

The “strapped in” position provides support over your entire body, giving you the ability to brake harder using all your accessible force to push that pedal down. Therefore the amount of force that can be applied in this seating position supersedes that of a normal driving position. With the double uprights, you are not relying on the rigidity of brackets on a separate pedal deck anymore. The Avanzata is ready to use load cell pedals up to +200kg to its full capacity.

Tool-free adjustability

No additional seat slider is needed as adjusting your seat is a breeze in the Avanzata with the built-in seat slider. Lock out and slide forwards or backward to your liking, forget everything around you, lock-in, and focus on the task ahead.
Our seat slider doesn’t only provide adjustability, it also adds extra support to your seat in the most critical areas. The aluminum structure functions as a harness, surrounding the areas that are prone to flexing when not supported. Resulting in extreme rigidity that can’t be matched by multiple layer fiber seats.

FINISH

We’ve chosen to abandon the easily scratchable anodising and traded it for a sweet layer of durable powder coating on both the connecting brackets and aluminum profiles.
The result is absolutely stunning and incomparable with other brands.

Wall of Fame

Our Avanzata Formula Sim is the pinnacle of Formula sim rigs on the market. This top-of-the-line cockpit is the ultimate choice for sim race enthusiasts with a profound preference for Formula-style racing. It is designed to handle the forces of direct wheel drives and heavy load cell pedals, even when they’re turned up to their most extreme settings. No flex in our dictionary means no flex! This seating position screams speed and the elevated position of the pedals gives you the ability to be even more consistent with your applied braking pressure.

The “strapped in” position provides support over your entire body, giving you the ability to use all your accessible force to push that brake pedal down. Therefore, the force applied in this seating position supersedes that of a normal driving position. With the double uprights, you are no longer relying on brackets' rigidity on a separate pedal deck. The Avanzata is ready to use load cell pedals up to +200kg to its total capacity. The elevated upper leg area gives more support while still having the freedom to choose a lower pedal position.

    My take on the experience with FSR Simgs;
    After a lot of google I came up with the FSR Avanzata first of all the looks appealed to me enormously. Of course you wonder if it is as comfortable as you hope, does it work well, is there flex in it etc….
    You know what, no shots are always missed I just call them and go through my questionnaire to see if I have the right answers so that it is confirmed. After a good and very nice conversation it almost sounded too good to be true, but because I didn’t want to go overnight, I was allowed to come by to test it.

    I drove to FSR and yes there it is.
    First impression… WOW super cool jep looks check!!
    After a test ride, which fortunately all went without any problems, my second impression… Not normal at all, no flex in the rig, everything is adjustable, so you always have the perfect fit.
    Sitting position wonderfully comfortable and super tight. I did not expect this (by the looks of the chair you think you are sitting in a hard bathtub) but this was certainly not true.
    The chair is very comfortable and you immediately imagine yourself in a kind of racing position so that you are completely ready.

    After a long and very pleasant conversation I immediately noticed that this is designed and built with passion and that splashes with everything!

    The click was so good that I thought, if I buy the rig I’d go “all-in” right away. So I immediately bought the Avanzata, Heusinkveld sprint pedals, Rexing steering wheel and other upgrades outside of FSR Simrig.
    If you want to do it right, don’t do it halfway.

    Conclusion;
    Provided you really like sim racing, this is the ultimate sim rig to experience all your fun. I say again TOP done and thank you very much that I can now always race with pleasure!!!

    Team FSR thanks for providing a quality and unique Formula Sim Rig.

    The hospitality to come and test the products first and the personal contact convinced me that your products are of high quality. The finish and the use of robust materials ensure a very strong (zero flex) and eye-catching design.

    The packaging of the products has been carried out very carefully, whereby the risk of possible transport damage upon delivery can be minimized / excluded.

    I can advise anyone with a racing heart who is looking for a perfect F1 Sim to make an appointment with FSR.

    I bought the FXU (the rig is now called Avanzata) from Formula Sim Rigs in silver in Q1/2021 – at that time it still had the MK8-1S seat from Lusomotors, which I didn’t manufacture myself. I’ve been using the rig regularly for a year now and I’ve also recently been using the new Nascita formula seat (produced by FSR itself).

    My experiences with FSR and the rig/seat are consistently positive:

    – Order/delivery quickly and without problems
    – Direct contact and very good support also via WhatsApp/by phone (thanks Jordi)
    – Quality, stability 1A, zero flex
    – Sophisticated solutions (movable seat construction for easier entry/exit)

    A few words on the seat comparison (MK8-1S to Nascita)
    The current seat has a slightly more upright position (better lower back support) as well as better thigh support (steeper rise). The arms also have a little more freedom for acute steering angles. So minimal improvements in the right place.

    Conclusion:
    If someone wants to do sim racing without compromise in a formula position, I can unreservedly recommend Formula Sim Rigs and their products from personal experience.

    Very happy with it! Super comfy! The best is no flex. My last rig would flex quite a bit under heavy braking and long corners.

  5. Christian

    Absolutely amazing product. Even with my 190cm size and long legs fits everything perfect!

Frequently Asked Questions

When will my order ship?

Unless stated otherwise we have a lead time of 5 days.

Do you ship to my destination?

Yes we shop worldwide. When you enter your address at checkout you'll automatically see the shipping costs.

Why can't I see shipping cost?

Shipping costs are automatically calculated when an address is entered.

Do you have stock?

Yes we do. Unless it's listed as "sold out", then we don't.

What is your return policy?

We will offer a full refund (including shipping costs) if you decide to return the product. You only have to cover the shipping costs from you to us.

Can I order with my EU VAT number?

Yes. Please contact us so we can set this up for you.

Can I just buy the seat?

Unfortunately we don't do this. We get this question a lot, but (assuming you want to mount it to a rig you already own) adapting a normal rig to Formula is not an easy task. There are a lot of things that need to be considered or you won't have a good experience at all. This is why we don't sell the seat by itself to non FSR rig owners. In order to have the best experience everything needs to come together or people will blame the seat for being uncomfortable and the contrary is the case. It took us 14 prototypes and about 8 months of R&D to get it right and we have access to infinite material.

What’s the difference between the Inizio and the Avanzata?

The Avanzata is the top of the line, no compromise, fully tool free adjustable rig made by us. It's designed to withstand all high end gear and is so strong and rigid that it will last multiple lifetimes.
The rig has infinite options to adjust to your liking, but it takes about 4-8 hours to assemble.

The Inizio is also strong, but it's more designed towards console players and the gear that fits on both console and PC. We've taken the angles of certain pedal sets and wheelbases into consideration and adjusted the design accordingly.
The rig has less moving parts, can still be adjusted, but not tool free like the Avanzata. The assembly only takes about 30 minutes.

What's the difference between Fiber and LineX?

The LineX version is the exact same seat as the fiber but it has an extra coating that protects the seat against scratches. If you wear jeans a lot and if you are allergic to scratches then definitely go for the LineX.It's an amazing technique which is used in the back of pick up trucks for example. You can spray it on a watermelon and throw the same watermelon from a high tower and it just bumps.

Why is there no padding?

Padding is on the roadmap, but to be honest; it's really not needed.
 
One rule that really stands out is that ergonomics beat padding any day of the week. In our seat, your entire body weight is divided over a huge surface. You'll have to see it like this; a 50kg woman with high heels will leave dents on a wooden floor while a 200kg man with size 45 doesn't. This makes the seat extremely comfortable as mentioned by others above.
 
Besides that, it's not only the seat that can cause pain and discomfort in your body. Most sim racers will recognize the feeling of lower back pain. There is a very simple explanation for this. When braking hard in a GT position your body is trying to compensate for the force that's applied. It will basically create a curve in your lower back which, after some time in the sim, will most likely become painful.
 
In our design, your knees are very slightly touching your wheelbase. This results in you sitting pretty much in the fetal position when applying force to the brakes and is very comparable with a leg press in the gym for example. Instead of a curve in your lower back, you press into your lower back, and since it's a bucket seat and your body can't go left or right. The result is an insane precision when applying braking force. You're able to apply more pressure and be more consistent. A rig without flex is worth nothing more if you end up creating flex in your own body.

I also drive GT cars often. Is that possible?

Do you have a headrest?
