Fanatec CSL Elite Steering Wheel P1 Unveiled

For those who have been looking to make their CSL Elite PS4 or other Fanatec wheel Xbox One compatible without breaking the bank or sacrificing quality, the German sim gear manufacturer might now have the right item in store – the Fanatec CSL Elite Steering Wheel P1.

Wasn’t their already such a rim?

In fact, there was, but it was just called Fanatec CSL Steering Wheel P1.The now added “Elite” in the name indicates that it is a step-up version and primarily aimed towards the Fanatec CSL Elite PS4 wheel, which was released not so long ago.

However, EVERY other current Fanatec wheel is compatible and able to take advantage of the instant Xbox One (X) compatibility added by attaching said rim.

The wheel itself features an “automotive grade Alcantara wrapping”, Fanatec’s most light-weight design ever (970g) and improved shifter paddles. It comes with a diameter of 30cm/ 11,81″ and includes a RevStripe, which is both centre stripe and rev metre.

As with the PS4 rim, the console-style buttons can be changed to racing-style buttons, with symbols of the most essential functions one would use in a race car.
