Cube Controls Formula Pro Sim Racing Wheel – validated and used by Lando Norris
How do you decide to buy a product? Most of us use other users’ reviews. Who can be more qualified to make a racing wheel review than a Formula 1 driver?
It is really true, the Formula Pro Sim Racing Wheel is used by Lando Norris himself in his private simulator. Do you ask why he chose the Cube Controls steering wheel over the competition?
Driving the real thing
First and foremost, it is the design and engineering of the Formula Pro Sim Racing Wheel, which makes it a very realistic imitation of a real Formula 1 steering wheel. The materials it is made from are top notch. The front part of the steering wheel is made of 100% carbon fiber composite, the rest is made of a carefully selected combination of carbon fiber composite and high quality CNC machined aluminum. The combination of all materials and controls gives you the feeling, you are holding a steering wheel just removed from a real Formula 1 racing car. Weight of the steering wheel is reduced to only 980 grams. The first reason Lando Norris loves the wheel that much, is obvious.
When we are dealing with the controls, we cannot forget to mention their layout, which is also very close to the real Formula 1 steering wheel layout. Durable resin pushbuttons, switches, and rotary knobs with precisely defined operation clearly show the level of workmanship, that the Formula Lite Sim Racing Wheel can boast with. At first glance perhaps small, but for the professional immediately noticeable feature are – the shift lever and clutch. They don’t use a traditional mechanical pushbutton, but much more accurate magnetic sensors, and measure the degree of compression.
The best driver training tool
Racing simulators are perfect Formula 1 drivers training tools. They spend more time driving them than a real Formula 1 race car. Driving on simulators, the F1 drivers can learn the track, ideal line, braking points, overtaking maneuvers and car response. The task of engineers is to create realistic tracks, set up track conditions and to recreate the car physics as much as possible. What is a good simulation without proper hardware, which allows the Formula 1 driver to feel the simulation how it is designed to be felt – as near to the real thing as possible. And one of the most important parts of professional simulation hardware is the steering wheel. No wonder Lando Norris opted for the Formula Pro Sim Racing Wheel, which price/quality ratio hasn’t been matched.
The Formula Pro Sim Racing Wheel is compatible with Thrustmaster, Logitech, AccuForce, Fanatec and SimuCube 1/2
