Fanatec CSL Elite Steering Wheel P1 Review By Inside Sim Racing

John Sabol of Inside Sim Racing presents his Fanatec CSL Elite Steering Wheel P1 review.

Back in August, Fanatec announced that they had expanded their range of CSL and CSL Elite steering wheels with the CSL Elite Steering Wheel P1  which is an official Xbox One licensed product compatible with both the Xbox One and Xbox One X. The 30cm/11,81″ diameter rim is based on the popular P1 steering Wheel but comes with a list improvements.

The realistically sized steering wheel (Ø30cm/11,81″) has a lightweight design of only approx. 970g which makes it the lightest steering wheel Fanatec currently offers. The design incorporates aluminum spokes, a fiber enforced back cover, as well as genuine Alcantara with an eye-catching red cross-stitched seam. The newly designed durable shifter paddles utilize Snapdome technology and have an intensive and positive click feeling. The Xbox One button caps can be exchanged easily to racing style button caps (included), with symbols that match the most popular functions needed during a race.

The CSL Elite Steering Wheel P1 is available at the Fanatec web store for 179.95€ Incl. 19% VAT.
