There aren’t many companies active in the sim-racing industry, at least not those offering quality products. Logitech, Thrustmaster, and Fanatec are among the top 10 manufacturers of high-quality peripherals for people who love sim racing.
I’m a big fan of Fanatec and its products. I love them, and they’re simply the best as far as I’m concerned. I remember the first time I got on one of their peripherals, a steering wheel. From the first contact and the first time I held it, I knew that quality and premium were the watchwords of this brand, and that’s still the case today.
Sim-racing seduced me many years ago, and I plunged heart and soul into this discipline. And to get started, you have to get the products, or peripherals in our case. Between the CSL DD base, Podium Wheel Base DD2, McLaren GT3 steering wheel, and Clubsport Pedals V3, the choice is vast at Fanatec.
In this article, I’ll discuss where to buy Fanatec peripherals.
Where to find Fanatec products?
With the democratization of the Internet, Fanatec has used this “platform” to boost sales and reach new regions. Today, the brand sells its products in several countries worldwide, both Europe and America. It has to be said that its fans are everywhere and, above all, very numerous. If you weren’t a fan of sim-racing and Fanatec, I’m sure it would only take 30 minutes with a good game and the brand’s peripherals to fall in love with it.
So, Fanatec sells its products on its website with categories and all available peripherals. You’ll find all the steering wheels, pedals, shifters, bases, etc., currently available for sale on the Fanatec site, sometimes even with promotions and bundles.
Where to buy Fanatec products?
Please get in touch with us if you’d like to buy one of Fanatec’s peripherals today. FanatecI regret to inform you that they are only available online on the brand’s website. Fanatec has no partnerships for the resale of its products and prefers to handle distribution itself.
On the one hand, this is understandable regarding delivery, bundles, pricing, etc. But, on the other hand, it poses a problem: that of availability. As sales are limited to the Fanatecy, you cannot purchase these products on the same day. You’ll have to place your order and wait a few days – typically 3 to 5 – to receive your items, only if the products are in stock. If not, you’ll have to wait longer.
Also, this approach isn’t optimal for getting to grips with the brand’s peripherals. Since sales are exclusively online, you won’t be able to try out the steering wheel or any other of the brand’s peripherals before you buy. You are obliged to base your purchase on tests and comparisons. Online and not on a sim-racing session.
If you want to plunge into sim-racing and buy Fanatec products, I advise you to make friends who already have Fanatec products. Setups with peripherals Fanatecto, try them out at home and see if this or that peripheral suits you. It’s not optimal, of course, but it has the luxury of working.
Alternatively, you can do your research on the Internet about this or that product from Fanatec. You’ll find many articles, YouTube videos, and tests on almost all the brand’s products.
