About Fanatec CSL Elite

The Fanatec CSL Elite wheel base features ultra-strong brushless servo motor which delivers up to 6Nm of torque on the steering axis, up to 1080 degrees of rotation, a single belt drive unit with ultra-low lag and cogging, and big ball bearings for lowest friction.

The base is compatible with PC, PS4 and Xbox. It can be paired with a selection of wheel rims, pedals and shifters; offering great flexibility and variety.

Our recommendation: Who's it for?

The Fanatec CSL Elite is one of the best value higher-end wheel bases available. It's for serious race sim fans who are ready to take the next step with their rig. Even when the cost of a wheel rim and pedals is added on top, it's a great setup for under $1000.

Game Reactor (10/10)
"If you're serious about your sim-racing and you want equipment that will help you shave tens of seconds off your lap times and that will last, then it is well worth the investment."
GT Planet (4.5/5)
"Fanatec’s latest model has set the bar very high for its part of the sim racing market. If you’ve got the means, we highly recommend checking it out. It isn't cheap, but the CSL Elite does what no other single competitor does at its price point."
Trusted Reviews (4.5/5)
"The Fanatec CSL Elite is the best racing wheel I’ve used. It’s smoother, more powerful and its pedal set is excellent. The best PC and Xbox One racing wheel you can get for under £1,000."
"If I had to choose between the competition, including older Club Sports, and Fanatec CSL Elite, I’d choose the latter. Especially with the load cell kit, this is a highly competitive setup, enabling you to compete for podiums in race. Clear winner!"
"The theme running throughout all of my time with the CSL Elite Racing Wheel for PS4 is that while it can be awkward to set up, it then provides enough settings, possibilities and customisability to cater to the most discerning of sim racing fans."
"The Fanatec CSL Elite Racing Wheel for the PS4 really is a solid package. It cleans the rough edges off of the CSL Elite Racing Wheel for the Xbox One and PC and really opens up your options. It's a wheel that begs your consideration, no matter what platform you race on."
