    Podium Advanced Paddle Module: The Most Authentic Paddle System Ever


    Featuring magnetic shifters and Hall sensors, the Podium Advanced Paddle Module is the ultimate upgrade for your Fanatec steering wheel.

    Automotive quality
    CNC machined aluminium cage and carbon fibre paddle plates combine with magnetic shifters and dual analogue paddles to deliver an authentic mechanism at the highest quality.

    Podium spec paddle upgrade
    The Podium Advanced Paddle Module is compatible with Fanatec steering wheels such as the ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 2018 and ClubSport Universal Hub for Xbox One.

    F1-Style Dual Clutch Paddles
    Add two analogue axes behind your steering wheel; use them for optimising launch starts, configure one as a handbrake, or even drive without pedals.

    Incredible durability
    Contactless Hall sensors with unlimited lifetime mean that your dual analogue paddles will function with precision and consistency.

    More than just dual clutch
    The paddles allow for four different modes (on supported steering wheels): F1-style clutch bite point mode, clutch/handbrake mode, brake/throttle mode, and mappable axis mode.

    Dual Magnetic Paddles
    Replace the standard shifter module with two inputs on each side, easily accessible for important functions like DRS.

    Sensational feel, unbeatable performance
    The magnetic ‘click’ generates a solid, positive feel to every shift. Allows for rapid shifting. Two sets of paddle plates are included, suitable for small and large steering wheels.

    Springless mechanism for durability
    Paddle operation uses strong magnets rather than springs, just like a real race car. Automotive grade switches combined with the magnet system result in higher durability.

    I noticed a couple of unused JST headers in the universal xbox hub a while ago but never got around to seeing if they could be used for anything, guess this is what they will be used for.

    Slightly related, I hope xbox update their policy of not allowing more button bindings than what is available on their controllers so we can properly map all the new wheels and accessories from Fanatec.

    I would guess not less than 200€. If they hit this price tag, I would say it is reasonable and a good deal. 250€ would be borderline, everything over that just too expensive.

    LOVE the idea of things being very modular like this. I can't wait to see what you guys come up with for Podium Pedals.
