Say hello to Rockpit! | Launch 🚀
When you have a rock-solid cockpit you have a… Rockpit! yeah! ✨💥✨.
With the second prototype on the way this long and very rewarding dev process has come to an end.
Check out the final prototype 3D Spin ⬇️
The first official version Rockpit V1 is similar to the first prototype I described in my previous post, with a few improvements.
☑️ Made the wheel mount compatible with vertical wheels & yokes with a 0° or 20° inclination option.
☑️ Added mounting holes to the pedals, wheel and shifter mounts for out-of-the-box compatibility with more Logitech, Thrustmaster and Fanatec gear.
⬇️ Redesigned the base:
- ☑️ Changed the hole for the chair to a channel so you can slide it in & out.
- ☑️ Made it lighter and 120 mm shorter.
☑️ Redesigned the pedals mount for + strength.
☑️ Tweaked some other parts for looks and material use optimization.
How to get one.
Costs and materials are different in every country and I won’t ship cross-borders so I made an official listing and index page. Check it out here it has full specs, features, animated demos, the styler, assembly animation and links to offers 4 each country with its available materials and cost. No links yet because I’m still negotiating partnerships.
Please don’t try to purchase the listing from another country, be patient, I’ll add countries as I arrange partnerships with the best makers.
Thank you everyone that followed my dev process, read updates, sent props, feedback and many AWESOME ideas. I’m very proud of this design and given the amount of energy I put into it, I’m positive rockpits will give users years of racing happiness.

Congrats Javier! I love it. Looking forward to the new prototype.
Thanks john, me too!! I’ll publish an update about it soon, hopefully this week.
I want one, how much and when will you ship to Miami?
Hey Jorge!!! don’t know yet! stay tuned I’ll be announcing it everywhere!
that was so cool, i want buy from you. I wonder how much cost? im in california!
Hey Sergio! thanks for your props! Unfortunately it’s not on sale yet. The potential maker I was talking to gave me a ridiculously high estimation a few months ago so I ditched it. I’ve also been very busy with my regular job so haven’t been able to progress much here but my plan is to get back, improve the design a little bit with new ideas i got and get other suppliers.
I run a CNC shop in the UK, we are interested in making and disruption of your products for you. We make a lot of very similar products for other designers. you can look up our company online. http://www.CEL-CNC.com
What’s up Chris? thanks for writing!
I saw your site but didn’t find products at cel-cnc.com and ovano.com didn’t load. I did find you own a large enough CNC machine to mill my designs.
I haven’t been able to put time on this turnifure.com for the last year or so and truthfully Rockpit isn’t yet production ready. I plan on getting back to this ASAP and will contact you as I’m pretty positive my future business model includes partners like you.
Thanks and talk to you soon.
