All Fanatec sim racing products reviewed

Here is our hub for all of our expert Fanatec sim racing product reviews. Above are all of our latest sim racing wheel base, racing wheel, pedal and peripheral reviews from the German sim racing brand.

You can sort the above reviews by highest rating to see the absolute best products available, or search reviews by the most recent. We love reviewing Fanatec sim racing products. The German sim racing manufacturer produces some of the absolute best sim racing wheels and products available.

Their wheel bases are often looked at as the pinnacle of sim racing. Most professional sim racers agree that the German brand produces some of the best racing wheels.

The German manufacturer‘s direct drive wheel bases are the best in class, offering the best force feedback available from a direct drive wheel. To go along with this, they also produce the most accessible direct drive wheel base available.

The ClubSport DD+ is Fanatec’s most recent all-console racing wheel. It works across Xbox, PlayStation and PC platforms, much like the GT DD Pro does and the DD1 before it. This lets sim racers purchase a single direct drive racing wheel and use it across all console platforms.

Many sim racing brands split their products into individual console-compatible products. And this will often mean you won’t be able to race on both Xbox and PS5 with the same racing wheel. However, that is not the case with the ClubSport DD+ and GT DD Pro wheel bases.

How do we review Fanatec products?

All of our reviews include our thoughts from hundreds of hours of testing. Most of the sim racing products that are reviewed above have been purchased by ourselves. And we have been running them as part of our main sim rig for months if not years.

Our main sim rig consists of a Sim-Lab P1X Pro, with an ultra-widescreen monitor which forms one of the best sim racing setups suitable for all forms of racing wheels and pedals. We try to use this same rig for all of our testing, so we have a level playing field for all reviews.

This cockpit can handle strong direct drive wheel bases, right up to the powerful 25Nm DD2. When we find ourselves reviewing new sim rigs, such as the RennSport V2 cockpit, we utilize our second sim racing setup. Our second sim rig is designed to be much more configurable, and interchangeable.

We always look to create in-depth reviews for every product, including all racing wheels, pedals and peripherals. We give each product at least a week on our sim rig at the very minimum so we get plenty of time to race with it. We then expertly compare it to other sim racing products in the same category to form our final opinion and thoughts.
