Fanatec has always offered some profitable “Black Friday” offers, but the business has gone all-out this year, kicking off the holiday shopping season with some of its most aggressive discounts on a wide range of products.
For the past week, Fanatec has been adding fresh discounts on its Black Friday website, and to help organize things, we’ve sat down and ranked the finest deals available this season.
ClubSport Universal Hub V2 for Xbox (22% Off)
The Clubsport Universal Hub V2 for Xbox provides Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S compatibility on a variety of Fanatec systems. The hub contains a 7-way FunkySwitch, 16 integrated buttons, a Tuning Menu button, and a three-digit LED display for rapid access to Fanatec hardware modifications such as force feedback.
Podium Button Module Endurance (25% Off)
The Podium Button Module Endurance is a full-scale copy of a GT3-class endurance button module made of real carbon fiber, internal metal reinforcements, and encased in a rubber-coated, glass fiber-reinforced backplate. It features 10 buttons, two 2-way toggle switches, a 2-axis analogue stick, a 7-way FunkySwitch, and two 12-position switches. The 2.7″ OLED display shows vehicle information and is encircled by RGB RevLEDs and FlagLEDs. The adjustable display supports Intelligent Telemetry Mode (ITM) with five different game telemetry data layouts.
ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 2023 + APM (26% Off)
The ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 2023 is fully licensed by Formula 1 and features a 5 mm-thick carbon fiber front plate with a forged carbon finish and a cutaway F1-style grip design. The 270 mm wheel diameter features a green synthetic suede grip and aluminum and carbon fiber paddle modules. The shifters, which are available with either the ClubSport Magnetic Paddle Module (see below) or the Podium Advanced Paddle Module, have strong magnetic resistance and precise ‘clicks.’ The wheel has a sophisticated QR2 Wheel-Side, an OLED display, multi-color LED bars, and input choices for up to 67 customizable in-game functions.
ClubSport Magnetic Paddle Module (30% Off)
The magnetic paddles on the ClubSport Magnetic Paddle Module, made with a CNC machined aluminum cage and 3 mm-thick carbon fiber paddle plates, provide a more genuine shifting sensation. The module is compatible with a variety of steering wheels and hubs, including the ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 20xx and Podium Hub, and operates on a magnet providing a more solid, positive feel during rapid shifting. The padded shifter arms reduce metal-on-metal contact noise, and the set includes Formula-style and GT-style paddles, extension plates for larger wheels, and spacers for adjusting the distance between the wheel rim and the shifter.
ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 2023 + MPM (33% Discount)
If you are prepared to exchange the Advanced Paddle Module (APM) for the Magnetic Paddle Module (MPM), you can actually save a little more money with this cheaper combo.
CSL Elite Pedals V2 (33% Off)
The V2 pedal set has been modified with a revised load cell brake, Hall sensors on the throttle and clutch, and other design changes. The brake pedal measures pressure for a realistic 90 kg resistance, thanks to a new load cell sensor. The adjustable elastomer stack requires no tools to install and simulates the initial brake pad movement.
Podium Wheel Rim Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (33% Off)
This officially approved Porsche 991 GT3 Cup car wheel is available in both Leather and Suede variants and is compatible with the CSL Universal Hub, ClubSport Universal Hub, and Podium Hub.
ClubSport Pedals V3 Ultimate Bundle (40% Off)
This bundle contains the ClupSport Pedals V3 as well as the V3 Brake Performance Kit and V3 Damper Kit. It comes with a custom-designed load cell, redesigned D-shaped pedal plates, and new pedal extension and adjustment options. The included Brake Performance Kit lets you further tune and reduce brake pedal travel, while the Damper Kit lets you vary brake resistance without using any tools.
ClubSport Shifter SQ V1.5 with USB Adapter (43% Off)
The ClubSport Shifter is entirely constructed of metal, giving it a more sturdy and genuine feel. Its H-pattern enables up to seven speeds and may be switched from sequential to parallel mode with the flip of a switch.
Podium Wheel Base DD2 (47% Off)
In terms of pure monetary value, Fanatec’s Podium Wheel Base DD2 reduction offers the greatest savings opportunity this season, with its price reduced by nearly half. The DD2 is a well-known direct-drive wheel base that can provide up to 25Nm of torque. This version incorporates the new QR2 base-side adapter for maximum compatibility with modern Fanatec wheel rims, as well as a “emergency stop” button in case of an emergency.
CSL DD / Gran Turismo DD Pro Upgrade Kit (48% Off)
This CSL DD or Gran Turismo DD Pro upgrade kit includes a variety of accessories for upgrading either of these popular wheels and their pedals. The 8Nm Boost Kit power adapter unlocks the full capability of the direct drive motors, while the CSL Pedals Tuning Kit adds anodized aluminum pedal plates and the CSL Pedals Load Cell Kit transforms the brake pedal into a pressure-sensitive input device.
QR2 Base-Side Type-C (71% Off)
The long-awaited “Quick Release 2 (QR2)” hot-swap wheel connection system from Fanatec was launched earlier this year to much fanfare due to its improved design and reliability. This “Type C” base-side connector (which, of course, connects to the wheel base) converts the Gran Turismo DD Pro or CSL DD wheel bases to the QR2 system.
QR2 Base-Side Type-M (80% Off)
The Type M QR2 Base-Side connector, which is normally priced at $149.95, is the most highly discounted piece of Fanatec hardware this year, having been reduced by 80% to only $29.95. The “Type M” base-side connector is the more “heavy duty” of the two, allowing it to accept a broader range of Fanatec’s most powerful wheels. If you’ve been thinking about getting one, now is the time to do it.
