Fanatec Clubsport steering wheel flat 2 Review
A few weeks ago a good friend of mine was kind enough and let me try his Clubsport steering wheel flat 2, he´s so in love with this steering wheel that I wanted to know what’s the big fuss. First, let’s talk about the characteristics: perfect for open-wheel racing and any race car requiring fast steering inputs, this steering wheel is a bundle of the ClubSport Steering Wheel Universal Hub for Xbox One® and the ClubSport Wheel Rim Flat 2, the rim is made in polished and anodised aluminum and covered in high-quality synthetic suede and the diameter is 27.5 cm. Now let’s look it closer.
If you like to stand out in the crowd this could be the rim for you, I mean, It’s glowing red and perfect for playing F1 games, Iracing, Rfactor 2 and so many other, I am confident that with this steering wheel you get an ultra-realistic driving experience. What I really appreciate is the classic design and the polished silver and red color scheme that is a nod to classic Formula cars.

The promise that will be a chance that I can use the most of the wheel system in the future is amazing but is not 100% sure; despite of that this steering wheel was a pleasant surprise, by attaching any wheel rim you want you can play it on many platforms.
As they say is great for open-wheel racing and any race car requiring fast steering inputs my experience was an enjoyable drive and very smooth also, about the unlimited customization you can place as many buttons as you want and where you want them, either use the integrated buttons on top of the Universal Hub or position additional buttons wherever you want them this is a great advantage.
Who is this product for? Well for me is not that hard to answer, if you are a die-hard fanatic of sim racing games like IRACING of F1 this is a nice piece to have in you rim inventory, with it you can stand out from the crow, the red color is fantastic and the size is like in a regular open-wheel car, I really like this rim, should be your only rim ? not sure of that, but If you have the money to buy one of this for extra fun, go for it you won’t regret.
