The original F1 Esports wheel was an essential part of the F1 Esports Pro Series, and became a really popular product as the lowest-priced Fanatec ClubSport-grade formula-style wheel. Despite increasing manufacturing costs, and the feature improvements, Fanatec managed to set the price of the V2 at 269.95 €/$. This is the lowest priced formula wheel on the market with RGB LEDs and magnetic shifters, and is shipping today!
Now the entire Fanatec ClubSport Steering Wheel range features magnetic shifters and an exchangeable quick release, so they are all ready for QR2. See all available new V2 ClubSports Steering Wheels in our Fanatec Sim Racing Buyer’s Guide.
Fanatec is still using a CNC-machined and anodised aluminium front plate for the F1 Esports V2, but it has been changed to accommodate the improved LEDs. They added RGB FlagLEDs to match the Formula V2.5 wheels, and the main RevLEDs are now RGB too. This means you can customise the colours using FanaLab and more accurately match the appearance of the car you’re driving.
Fanatec also upgraded to magnetic shifters, built from polymer composite, with metal paddles. Like the other magnetic shifters, the actuation feels more precise and satisfying. The revised electronics means it can also be upgraded to the ClubSport Magnetic Paddle Module and Podium Advanced Paddle Module.
