Hardly any other manufacturer manages to bring new products onto the market as regularly as MOZA Racing. With the new Formula style steering wheel and the 12 Newton metre wheelbase, it’s going into the next round.
MOZA Racing KS GT Style Racing Wheel
With the KS GT Style Racing Wheel, MOZA closes the gap between the ES Steering Wheel with Formula Mod and the GS Steering Wheel, fulfilling a long-held desire of the community for a Formula Wheel in the €300 price range.
The 300-millimetre steering wheel is equipped with rubber grips and uses a material combination of steel, carbon and polymers:
Crafted with a blend of carbon fibre and high-performance polymers, this racing wheel combines durability and lightweight construction for optimal performance.
The carbon fibre reinforced composites and high-strength steel construction of the KS GT Style Racing Wheel ensure exceptional strength and rigidity whilst keeping weight to a minimum.MOZA Racing
In addition, the MOZA-typical quick release and 8 RGB LEDs for the RPM bar are installed, each of which can be set in eight colours. In total, the steering wheel has the following function keys
- 10 illuminated RGB-Buttons
- 3 12-Posiition Rotary Encoders
- 2 20-Posiiton Thumb Encoders
- 2 Joysticks (multi-directional de-pressable)
- 2 Magnetic-Shifter
- 2 Clutch-Paddles

MOZA Racing R12 Wheelbase
With the R12 Direct Drive Wheelbase, MOZA closes the gap between the R9 Wheelbase with 9 Newton metres and the R16 Wheelbase with 16 Newton metres and now offers an almost gap-free ecosystem:
- R5: 5.5 Newton metre
- R9: 9 Newton metre
- R12: 12 Newton metre
- R16: 16 Newton metre
- R21: 21 Newton metre
The base is not a big surprise on the outside or inside and complements the existing products. MOZA Racing lists the following as key features
12Nm DD power: With a widely regarded industry sweet spot of 12Nm sustained power, the MOZA R12 flawlessly replicates the steering forces and feedback of real racing cars providing complete immersion to the driver.
The Motor: The R12 shares the same cutting-edge motor technology found in MOZA Racing’s flagship R21 base, such as the unique slanted pole design and tri-segmented rotor. The result is significantly reduced cogging, electromagnetic vibration and an ultra-low torque ripple compared to conventional motors. This revolutionary motor design ensures a wide high torque speed range with an incredibly low power consumption thanks to its high slot fill rate and high permeability cores.
Next Generation Force Feedback Filtering Algorithm: The R12 is powered by MOZA Racing’s latest generation force feedback filtering algorithm, providing industry-leading enhanced dynamic feedback that communicates oversteer and understeer with unbelievable clarity and richness.
Industrial Conductive Slip Ring: The R12 connects to the wheel via a military-grade conductive slip ring. With a life span of well over 5 million revolutions, this patented system provides extremely high stability and durability with an infinite steering angle.
Intelligent Temperature Control: The R12 advanced control system constantly monitors the motor and electronic components, employing intelligent control strategies to deliver stable and reliable performance in all conditions.MOZA Racing
Aviation Grade Aluminium: The entire housing is constructed from aviation grade aluminium utilising automotive grade laser etching, providing an extremely durable, long-lasting finish.

Prices and availability
Just like the KS Steering Wheel, the R12 Base is now available in the MOZA Racing Shop from a price of 649€ plus VAT and customs. As expected, the price therefore sits between the R9 and the R16 Wheelbase. The German partner Sim-Motion will also offer the base at a later date at a price of 649€, but then including taxes.
