The CSL DD with Boost Kit 180 is significantly cheaper than the ClubSport Wheel Base V2.5, and yet it has much higher performance as a result of direct-drive technology. While peak torque is similar, the fidelity, responsiveness, wheel speed, and acceleration are all superior to the belt-driven system, and this is why the ClubSport Wheel Base V2.5 is also no longer in production.

The new ClubSport Steering Wheel Formula V2.5

This new variation of the Formula wheel has a timeless black and white colour scheme, the highly requested perforated leather grips, and magnetic shifters as standard. This wheel is compatible with PC, and can be used on PlayStation systems if combined with a PlayStation-licensed wheel base.

Fanatec is starting to ship the quick release in a separate package for these new steering wheels, so it requires a small amount of assembly. So when you add a ClubSport Universal Hub V2, or ClubSport Steering Wheel Formula V2.5 to your basket, and see the quick release listed separately in the basket, this is normal.

Introducing the ClubSport Universal Hub V2 and ClubSport Universal Hub V2 for Xbox.

The ClubSport Universal Hub is back, with revised electronics, magnetic shifters, and an upgradable quick release. It is now available in two variants: Xbox-licensed, and non-Xbox licensed.

The ClubSport Universal Hub V2 is compatible with PC, and can become compatible with PlayStation systems if connected to a PlayStation-licensed wheel base. It is pre-installed with the ClubSport Magnetic Paddle Module as standard and includes small and large paddles to suit a wide selection of wheel rims. It has an exchangeable quick release so it is ready for the transition to QR2. 

The ClubSport Universal Hub V2 for Xbox has the same specifications as above, with the addition of Xbox compatibility. This version comes with removable Xbox button caps, plus racing-style caps and an ‘F’ sticker for the FunkySwitch if you wish to configure it for multi-platform use.

Fanatec already hinted to even more new products, such as new Fanatec steering wheels to be announced shortly.
