Logitech G, a Logitech brand and gaming gear provider, today announced the PRO Racing Wheel and PRO Racing Pedals, designed to take the setup of passionate SimRacers to the next level. The price is at least on the next level: it is over 1.000 euros for the steering wheel alone as the manufacturer's recommended retail price. 

The PRO Racing Wheel was developed for the most realistic racing experience possible and therefore has a new, powerful Direct Drive engine which, in combination with the TRUEFORCE feedback technology, delivers gripping racing action. “The new PRO Racing Wheel from Logitech G makes racing simulation incredibly realistic. I can literally feel the track conditions and how the car reacts to them. Using the Racing Wheel at home gives me the feeling of being right on the track,” says Lando Norris, McLaren F1 racer.

Steering wheel for simulation enthusiasts

The PRO Racing Wheel's brand new Direct Drive engine achieves an impressive performance of 11 Newton meters with minimal latency. Coupled with TRUEFORCE, Logitech G's proprietary high-precision force feedback technology, the Direct Drive engine delivers unparalleled racing realism with higher responsiveness than ever before. This allows SimRacers to experience the physics and sound of the game more immersively and with near-instantaneous feedback - from road conditions to engine vibrations.

"Fans of our racing wheels and pedals can look forward to a major upgrade in terms of realism, performance, control, design and durability," said Richard Neville, director of simulation and controllers at Logitech Gaming. "We analyzed every parameter - from the number of shifts, twists and bumps that an 11 Newton-meter wheel can withstand, to the materials and components that withstand even the toughest racing conditions."

The result is a PRO racing steering wheel system that offers and combines unsurpassed realism, driver information, a connection to the car and almost no delays. The PRO Racing Wheel was developed for professional SimRacers and has the following features:

  • Intuitive steering wheel design - The buttons and controls are arranged in such a way that they can be reached with a flick of the thumb. The racers never have to take their hands off the steering wheel and can fully concentrate on the track.
  • Magnetic Paddle Shifters - The integrated paddle shifters are magnetic, utilizing non-contact Hall-effect sensors and additional tactile magnets. In this way, the gear changes are reminiscent of the experience in a real racing car. The paddles are designed to effortlessly handle millions of switching operations.
  • Dual-Clutch Paddles - Analog paddles support a variety of racing functions where response is key. If they are arranged in the form of a double clutch system, the advantage at the start becomes even greater. Alternative configurations include a handbrake and two additional axles, allowing SimRacers to easily use the paddles as accelerator and brake pedals.
  • Custom Racing Profiles - Sometimes different racing games require different racing settings. For this purpose, SimRacer can create a total of five different racing profiles via the integrated display, which they can then call up again and again with just a few clicks.
  • Easy attachment - The newly developed clamping system makes it easier to assemble the racing wheel. At the same time, the standard screw holes required for mounting on a racing seat are retained.

The PRO Racing Pedals feature realistic load cell braking and are fully customizable to suit racing setups and styles. The most important features are:

  • Pressure Sensing - The pedals register the force applied to brake for a realistic brake feel. In this way, confidence in the car increases and SimRacer can push their limits even further.
  • Adjustable Pedals - The three pedals can be easily adjusted to your own preferences. For example, the clutch and accelerator pedals can be made harder or softer, while a selection of elastomers is available for the brake pedal. Both the accelerator and clutch pedals are equipped with non-contact Hall effect sensors that ensure long life.
  • Modular Pedal Design - Each pedal can be moved on a horizontal plane, allowing SimRacers to create the ideal spacing for them. The detachable pedal modules make customization a breeze.

The Logitech G PRO Racing Wheel is available in two versions: one compatible with PC, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 consoles and one supporting PC, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One. The Logitech G PRO Racing Pedals are compatible with PCs running Windows 10/11 via a USB port and with Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 4 consoles when connected to the PRO Racing Wheel. The Logitech G PRO Racing Wheel and PRO Racing Pedals are expected to be available in September 2022 on LogitechG.com and in retail worldwide at an MSRP of €1099 (wheel) and €389 (pedals).
