    A new steering wheel in the CSL Line.  Something related to XXX..So I'm saying a XXX.

    P.S.  Maybe the rollover name for the image file should have been something less descriptive :) :)
    EDITED by moderator: Thanks for the hint ;)
  • I agree, looks like a new formula rim
  • looks like two new rims, one CSL rim and finally a new ClubSport Rim?! :-)
    Black Friday can't come soon enough :-)
  • You can see the Fanatec CSL logo in the top left but what is throwing me is there are two QL systems in play, one the same as the other CSL systems and one metal like the clubsport with ball bearings. Presumably something like the Formula Black and Formula Carbon with one slightly more expensive but nicer components and in this case Clubsport QL instead of a CSL QL?
  • Bin gespannt.

    I love the Fun Games but Given the fact that this will be for pre order only thanks Giving weekend and thats Next Week and Less than 10 days i think it would be very relevant to post full information and Price point of the New Product so we can better judge if its a Must have item and Budget accordingly ---> I dont want to waste My $$$ buying a Turkey and all the trimmings when i can put that $$$ to better use buying Sim Racing Gear $-)
  • So Spagetti for your family, Lorrell :)

    And I real Quick Release System!!!!
  • So watching there's 2 rims and the CLS look like will have a release system like the others in the line. Thomas you will have to talk with Racing Sim Girl because one of the two cons she talk was the lack of options in the CLS range!!!!!
    To the record yesterday I put the Formula Rim in my shopping cart.... Will wait.
  • i think there is two wheels
  • A formula wheel compatible with Xbox One. 
  • Could one be an F1 rim for the Podium series?

    Ooooohhhhh Yes!
    About time. As the caption states "there is no finish line" I would hope for a Rally rim but I'm not getting my hopes up.
    With all the carbon fiber, I would lean toward a F1 rim.
    Black Friday sales my finally get me to order my setup.

  • I hate you, Thomas...in the nicest way possible!

    I can't even focus at work right now.  However, you may have just lost a sale, albeit replaced with a new one(!), as I was about to pull the trigger on CSW V2.5 and accessories... but I can be patient, though!
  • there is no finish line

    a (csl elite) F1 rim with a big data Display and a nike Logo

  • Guys I got it!!!!! theres a Mclaren Official Rim!!!!!!! for sure the Nike Logo is part of it and almost for sure is the 650 GT3 one, Yesssss!!!!!
  • It's allways exciting to see new Fanatec products. And so this thread at least reduces the attention on the CSL-Elite compatibility issues which are posted below this new guessing game...

    From my perspective it's much more important to see the CSL Elite wheel fully working with PC 2 and GTSport on the PS4 console. I hope we will see some progress here soon...

     
  • look this video and you will see all the similarity's


    Yesss!!!!! hope this one is is the CLS

    Off Topic

    Thomas please make shure Assetto Corsa solve the problem of the ABS and TRAC get solve to the next upgrade!!!!!!



  • Could be this one as well...

  • Hope 650s GT3 the 12C is out of production. 
  • If it is for the CSL line (which it looks like one of them is)...man, if we got an F1 rim, with xbox one compatibility...wow.
  • edited November 2017
    Yes I think this is a F1 styled Rim for the CSL Series  :) Would be a smart decision to offer this for black friday as the F1 Rim of the Clubsport Series is one of the best sellers  ;) Im really looking forward to all new upcoming rims Fanatec has yet to reveal   :D

    The only thing that says two different wheels to me are the two QR mechanisms pictured.  I don't see anything else that points to two totally different products. I'm going to guess that the wheel will be available with either CS/CSL/or Podium(?) QR system.  I also think it points more towards a sports car wheel (like those pictured by other posters) as opposed to an F1 wheel.  The current F1 wheel is fine, although the difference between today's F1 rims and a modern GTE/P1/P2 rims are negligible from a sim racing perspective. Hopefully this one will provide a more robust grip diameter for larger hands than the current Fanatec F1. The main thing missing from any of the wheels is a detailed display, but there are too many variables from the game manufacturers to spend time developing a display that works well with only one or two games.  This is a shame because it would be awesome to have a wheel with a generic screen that could mirror the real life steering wheel display of the car you are driving.......someday maybe.
  • If you look two and three boxes above the "Th" in "There" you can see what looks to be a nice digital display.  I can see the "S1" in the lower left corner which is probably Settings #1 and there looks to be a 'P" with the rest of it cropped out.

    I agree with what others have said ... it looks VERY similar to a McLaren GT3 steering wheel.

    I'm excited

    SA
  • hopefully a fully compatible F1 style wheel for Xbox one X.....please
  • Well Joe, 

    In my point of view Thomas like the intelligent guy it is will make the rim to work with the 3 bases the two CLS and the CSR if possible.
     
  • Looking again that is 100% a McLaren logo

    Yes you are right!! :)
  • I wonder, Podium rims have to be a step up from CS rims. Will we get magnetic paddles?
  • Phillip, the V2.5 (and old V2.0) is only compatible with PC and Xbox(with hub).... there are two F1 style wheels for PC and  PS4  ,,, none for Xbox , been waiting since the hub came out for an F1 wheel . and Thomas as good as he is to us, can only give us what Sony and Microsoft allow.
  • First i was thinking the picture is just a puzzle and i simply have to sort it. :D
    2 minutes later i realized ..... this doesn't work. LOL

    Yes, i agree about a McLaren branded wheel rim.
  • Loosing interest....
    I was hoping for some podium series items.

    I guess I'll have to wait till next year for more information on that
  • Hopefully it's larger than present F1-rim, that wheel is too small for ie. prototypes, modern gt.cars, dtm etc, which wheels are in 29-32cm.

    That's why I don't like to use that wheel with those cars 'cause it's not realistically sized. F could also bring that kind of rim(and cut wheelrim in general) to add to un.hub.

    There is more than one rim in that picture and one could be the podium version, I'm sure they must have a new podium rim for the podium DD bases. Looking at the display it looks very similar to the OLED display they showed on the Podium base, also we can see the textured back of one of the copper shifters but below that there is also a similarly texture black piece, I'm thinking 4 paddles. Still can't work out what that fin looking piece is, could be the front of the other paddles or just design flair?
  • Some similarities to a McLaren GT rim can't be dismissed. -> https://abload.de/img/15327editkuoij.jpg
  • I think the new podium serie
  • I think the new podium serie
    there is a part of the pic that says "CSL" so maybe a CSL wheel and a Clubsport or Podium wheel?

    According to the facebook post, thats only one wheel and it will be availble for preorder next friday.
    Tomorrow they should announce couple of deals for Black Friday.
    That's that at least

    There are 2 different QR types in that pic sooo maybe 1 Rim style but at different price points because of the QR. Im Not a Huge fan of Branding---> I Hope its just the Fanatec Logo The Fanatec Logo is More than Good Enough and i proudly Display it in My Man Kave for All to see <--- I dont Let regular None Sime Racer people Touch it though ---> You have to be a fellow Sim Racer to operate any of My Gear.... Bottom Line and im Very Firm about that.
  • I think there is going to be a Mclaren gt3 rim in 2 or 3 versions Clubsport lite, Clubsport or/and maybe Podium. For example the csl version will come with the ''plastic" QR like the stock csl wheel and the clubsport will have the normal QR version + more features and maybe the podium will have more exotic materials like magnesioum , carbon etc. 

    I can see Fanatec making wheels - bases - pedals , for CSL, CS, Podium line. Everything you want for every budget you have.

    I like this aproach. Csl base , Cs base , Podium base. Csl pedals Cs pedals why not podium pedals? Why not the same with their wheels?

    I am selling my t300rs Ferrari alcantara to a friend just to move to fanatec. 
    C'mon Black Friday. . . . . . 
  • looks like two sets of paddles, gear and clutch ??

    Hi Joe.

    I am a prospective Fanatec buyer, and I have been waiting to see what the holidays will bring from fanatec before I decide to make a purchase. In your post you mention the V2.5 and V2.0 wheel base being compatible with the Xbox but with the hub. Is the hub necessary for the V2.5 and V2.0 wheel base to be compatible with the Xbox? Or can I just buy a V2.5 wheel base with an Xbox compatible wheel?

    And about the mystery new products...

    I really hope that there is a new Xbox One compatible wheel but in a "normal" GT3 style wheel design, kind of like the current Fanatec BMW GT2 wheel which is for the PC and PS4. 

    I am not crazy about the oddly shaped F1 like Mclaren wheel. I am really hoping for a nice GT3 style wheel of high quality for the Xbox One as I feel the current options for a wheel for the Xbox One is a bit lacking.
  • Damion, any Xbox compatible rim will work. The hub allows a variety of rims. I have the Forza rim on my hub for Xbox. It works well as a GT size wheel but more options would be nice.
  • ...This steering wheel will be available for pre-order only during the Black Friday weekend and available early next year.

    And of course we will have several other Black Friday offers which will be revealed about one week before.
    I'm counting the days already...
  • Think it is a CSL and CSW LMP style rim. I see two different quick release systems. Lots of carbon and a dial switch.
