For years, G-Performance has been providing expert advice to customers on the best components for sim racing. Based on our most frequently recommended products and customer purchase data, we have created combinations of the most sought-after components for new sim builds.
Cube Controls Formula F-PRO
The unmistakable carbon fibre front plate with the embossed Cube Controls logo exudes quality and innovation.
The assignable RGB LED lights are a standout feature and adding your own personalized RGB colour and sticker placement has never been easier. If you’re looking for the ultimate racing wheel experience in 2023, this is it.
The F-Pro boasts a dual mode connection, offering both USB and Bluetooth connectivity for versatile use. No more having to choose between wireless or USB. The new Q-Conn connection replaces the traditional DIN socket with a robust magnetic connector, reducing stress on the cable and ensuring durability.
The latest generation of Cube Controls wheels raises the bar for construction, with refinements in CNC machining, paddle shift mechanism, and ball bearing for added responsiveness. Visually it’s clearly a very nicely manufactured sim steering wheel.
The wheel can be mounted on any QR hub with either a 50.8mm or 70mm PCD fitment and comes with the necessary tools for quick and easy installation. The M5 bolts needed for installation are also included.
The 285mm wheel weighs 1100g and has adjustable paddle throw, ranging from 3 to 6mm. The “zero play” shifter paddles are magnetic, switchless, and have adjustable stop ends, ball bearings, and improved tactile feedback. The paddles are 4mm thick and 52mm wide, made of carbon fibre. The analogue clutch paddles can be configured in the setup utility.
The 12 backlit momentary buttons have a tight resistance to avoid accidental presses, while the on/off toggle switches have status LED lights within reach of the thumbs. The wheel features thumb rotary encoders on either side and two more on the wheel chassis, with backlit surrounds for custom sticker placement. The wheel also includes four front panel rotaries with backlit surrounds. The two multi-directional “funky switches” with integrated encoders give you complete control of in-game software. Cube’s revised aluminium rotaries have a high-quality, tactile feel and an ergonomic grip design.
