There’s no doubt that all Fanatec products are pretty amazing, the German manufacturer brings joy to my life – not to my wallet – every time they launch a product and this was not the exception, if you prefer the f1 style, I mean, smaller and rectangular design that also allows you fast movements and reactions this one is for you.
Officially licensed for ps4 and Formula 1 the elite set is pure force, built specifically for competition, ultra-realistic (they pay a lot of attention to details), this package includes the ClubSport Steering Wheel Formula 1 Esports rim, the CSL Elite Wheel Base+, and the CSL Elite Pedals. The bundle is compatible with the PC and all PlayStation4 and PlayStation Pro systems.
The CSL Elite F1® Set isn’t cheap but is not too expensive either, if you want to invest in a mid-range set (but with a deluxe feel) do it, buy it, the quality is amazing, smooth and precious, to be honest, I was a little disappointed with the two pedals but I can´t deny it feels nice, the wheel is small but when you get used to the size oooh lord, you completely forget it after a few minutes and the focus on the game goes to the 100%.

Brief Design Overview
Believe it or not, this racing wheel is an entry-point level, but let me explain why, As you might know already, Fanatec produce one of the top simracing products out there, Their setups are pre-made for most hardcore racing enthusiasts, with ultra-realistic effects and one of the stronger force feedback you will ever see, (or feel), but these features come with a price, Fanatec products cost money, and with the release of new technologies like Direct Drive simracing is getting more a more pro-class for the most part.
So, back with the way, If you want to be part of the Fanatec Ecosystem without the concern of “losing” some advanced features, this CSL Elite F1 bundle is for you. What I like the most and at the same time don’t like in this racing wheel is the F1 style, definitely smaller than a real F1 racing car, but don’t get me wrong this machine is well designed with tons of features and a nice set of buttons.
