Our recommendation: Who's it for?

Offering comparable performance to other high-end direct drive wheels, the Fanatec Podium DD wheel bases provide a very realistic experience. It's especially compelling if you want something easy to setup that also works on consoles and is compatible with all Fanatec wheel rims, pedals, shifters etc.

Reviews from the web

"The Fanatec direct drive offerings are compelling, with console compatibility and a solid ecosystem already in place, they're the first to bring direct drive to the mainstream."
"The DD1 and DD2 are pretty damn good. What really stood out was how the OSW, the Fanatec DD1/DD2 and the Bodner fit into their own bracket (NB: not all wheels were optimally setup)."
"I'm pretty darn impressed. The wheel genuinely feels close to my OSW and also adds in elements of the Fanatec ecosystem to create a well rounded product (though only based on 3 hours of testing)."
"If you want a realistic setup and love sim racing, I think you'll be really happy with your purchase. I've had no buyer's remorse."
