Officially licensed for PS4™

It’s finally here. The Direct Drive revolution comes to PS4. Take your racing experience to the ultimate level with Fanatec Direct Drive technology. Our partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC means that the Podium Racing Wheel works seamlessly with all PS4™ and PS4™ Pro consoles.

The First Ever Direct Drive System for PS4™
The First Ever Direct Drive System for PS4™

The Podium Racing Wheel combines breakthrough technology with years of simulation hardware experience. Fanatec Direct Drive has no equal. It is quite simply the most realistic force feedback system ever on a console.

The Definitive Direct Drive System

Podium wheel bases use an outrunner-type motor engineered from the ground up specifically for sim racing. Instead of using a random industrial motor, our custom motors are tailored without compromise for sim racing.

Direct Drive Without The Hassle

It’s all in the details. Our thousands of design hours means that you can just drive and enjoy.

Wireless Data and Power
Wireless Data and Power

The endless rotation of our direct drive motor inspired the development of a unique solution to transfer data and power to the wheel inputs and displays wirelessly. This means no USB cables are flying around which can easily get damaged and make it difficult to let the wheel spin in a drift.

Fully Certified, Plug and Play
Fully Certified, Plug and Play

The Podium DD1 is the first plug-and-play direct drive wheel base, featuring integrated electronics within the main housing. It’s as easy to set up as our CSL and ClubSport series products. Rigorous EMI and ESD testing ensures stability and longevity.

Direct Drive Without The Hassle
