Did you see the limited-edition (and now sold-out) carbon fiber F1 wheel from Fanatec on Black Friday? Well there’s a more attainable version too, and it comes in plug-and-play package to boot.
Say hello to the CSL Elite F1 Set. It pairs the refreshed aluminum-fronted F1 tiller with the tried-and-true CSL Elite PS4 base and the CSL Elite pedals. The rim is the same one Brendon Leigh and the rest of the F1 Esports drivers used during the season, with a full complement of extra buttons across its 11-inch span. The all-metal shift paddles are also adjustable (or even removable). An LED display allows for telemetry data for compatible games via the Fanatec SDK. Finally, there’s two rumble motors within the grips, helping eke out even more information on the quest for fast lap times.
Curiously, this is the first of Fanatec’s modern day wheel rims that is only compatible with PS4 and PC.
We rate the CSL Elite PS4 very highly in the mid-range market. You can read our full review on it here. We’re also big fans of the CSL Elite pedals, albeit with the optional loadcell kit.
If you’re interested in picking up the kit on this Cyber Monday, you’ll also get a copy of F1 2018 at a sizeable discount (read our review here). Check out the official Fanatec web store for all the details.
