Due to the possibility to mount steering wheels with 70mm as well as 50.8mm rim holes, you also have a wide selection of possible steering wheel rims in this regard. A complete list of compatible Fanatec products can be found on the product page.

Order and shipping

The hub is now available for €149.95 + shipping directly from Fanatec. However, the bundles with different steering wheels should be especially interesting. They only cost 199.95€ each in combination with a steering wheel rim and the CSL hub, which means a saving of 70€ compared to buying them individually.
