Fanatec ClubSport DD Racing Wheel F1 Rim

Officially licensed by Formula 1®, the iconic 270 mm ClubSport Formula wheel features a stunning blue forged carbon finish with perforated leather grips. Programmable RGB RevLEDs can show motor RPM and optimal shifting point, and the two RGB FlagLEDs can be triggered by telemetries, such as tyre slip, fuel level, or warning flags.

The combination of PlayStation®5 console performance with FANATEC® Direct Drive technology delivers responsive and incredibly dynamic force feedback. Of course, the ClubSport DD+ Wheel Base works on PC too.

ClubSport DD+ Wheel Base

By splitting the rotor into offset segments, cogging torque is naturally reduced. Combined with our patented FluxBarrier technology which increases efficiency and smoothness, the result is crystal-clear force feedback information in every driving situation.

Engineered to meet strict cooling requirements, the ClubSport DD+ is the most thermally stable Wheel Base in its class, so you can have absolute confidence that the torque output and force feedback will remain consistent, no matter how long you drive.

The speed of the ClubSport DD+ servo motor allows us to fine-tune its behavior with more accuracy than any previous Fanatec Wheel Base. This means your steering wheel can feel very active, clearly communicating the smallest details, while also feeling perfectly stable, and resistant to unwanted oscillation.

Fanatec Quick Release

The existing force feedback protocol was designed for gear and belt-driven devices – the only hardware available at the time. FullForce is a new force feedback protocol tailored specifically for FANATEC® Direct Drive. Leveraging the instantaneous response and zero backlash of direct drive technology, FullForce generates high-frequency vibrations for a new level of immersive effects. Feel the engine revs, and details of the road surface like never before. Only FullForce gives you the full experience of driving a race car.

ClubSport DD+ Inputs

Class-leading slew rate performance combined with the powerful processor makes every motor reaction incredibly fast and dynamic while remaining perfectly stable. This behavior lends itself to traditional force feedback signals as well as enhanced FullForce signals (in supported games).
