Simucube proudly presents OverPower, one of Simucube’s Official OEM Partners!
OverPower is an esports peripheral manufacturer based in Finland. OP specializes in designing and manufacturing ergonomic simulator rigs, with a passion to deliver outstanding aesthetics and performance.
OP currently offers four different rig solutions with color variations and customizable liveries. OP flagships, OP Formula and OP GT offers great performance for the most demanding racing simulations and high-end sim hardware. The Lite variations of the Formula and GT are affordable and easily upgradeable rigs with performance suitable for mid- and low-range sim racing peripherals up to SC2 Sport and Heusinkveld Sprint pedals.
The story of the OP began in 2015 when Olli Pahkala, a professional sim racer known from championships like F1 Esports, iRacing World Championship Grand Prix Series and Visa Vegas eRace, had a need for an affordable yet ergonomic and performance packed sim rig. During his winter break, he handcrafted Woodboost rig from spruce to win two additional bronze medals in the iWCGPS with the rig.
Few years went by and the Woodboost found its way to Olli’s cousin Jouni Aartola, a wood artisan with the skills learned from premium furniture projects including royal furniture handcrafting in the UK. Jouni put his hands dirty and the OverPower catalogue was born and launched in Q4 2020.
The OP family business was founded by Olli, Jouni and Olli’s father Risto Pahkala, who welcomes you to join the OP team with open arms!
