Breaking news on the new Fanatec CSL universal Hub and we got it covered.
Here is what Fanatec had to say:
“The CSL Universal Hub supports a wide variety of wheel rims, combining many of the advanced features of the ClubSport Universal Hub at a lower price”.
With that in mind I am sure that many wheel owners in the sim racing community would love to have this as a viable option to add to the existing hardware they own or the ever growing Fanatec ecosystem.
The CSL Universal Hub supports a wide variety of wheel rims, combining many of the advanced features of the ClubSport Universal Hub at a lower price.
EASY WIDTH ADJUSTMENT.
An innovative slider mechanism allows effortless positioning of the button islands and shifter paddles to suit different wheel sizes. Stepless slider for precise adjustment.
ATTACH ANY RIM YOU WANT.
Threaded holes for wheel rims with a 3 x 50 mm or 6 x 70 mm pattern means that all current Fanatec wheel rims can be attached to the CSL Universal Hub. It is also compatible with many wheel rims from brands such as MOMO, Sparco, or OMP.
Packed with features.
The design of the integrated button islands, display, and shifters provides a very neat appearance with several wheel rim combinations. The button layout is optimised for training muscle memory, with different sizes, shapes, and heights that will become familiar by feel alone.
PLENTY OF INPUTS.
Alongside eight standard buttons with snap-dome activation, the integrated button islands also feature a 2-way rocker switch, two 2-way toggle switches, and a 7-way FunkySwitch™ with rotary encoder functionality.
SNAP-DOME SHIFTER PADDLES.
Reinforced with a honeycomb structure, the paddles are shaped to fit most wheel rims. The width of the paddle positions is adjusted together with the button islands as part of the slider mechanism. Snap-dome activation gives a reassuring click with every shift.
Tuning Menu access.
You can access the FANATEC® Tuning Menu with just the press of a button. Adjust your wheel base force feedback and other hardware settings while you drive.
