The Fanatec CSL Universal HUB V2 is the native solution from Fanatec to get your favourite wheel rim working with a Fanatec Wheelbase.  I’m happy to report that after testing the CSL Universal Hub V2, our main concerns from the original CSL Universal Hub have been addressed quite well!

There is now metal bracing across the back of the unit which has definitely increased the overall rigidity of the unit.  The shifter paddles have also been overhauled and have far less flex than the original.  There is still some flex present, but I would say the shifters are now as solid as you would expect for a product at this price point.

Watch our full review video for all the details and our experience with the Fanatec CSL Universal Hub V2, or check out the pricing and features below.

Fanatec CSL Universal Hub V2 Pricing

The price will remain the same as the original at 149.95 EUR/USD, but they’re offering a deal on the CSL Universal Hub V2 + 9 selected wheel rims for 199.95 EUR/USD which you can find in the “Steering Wheels” category on the Fanatec site.

These can also be combined with their current CSL DD promotion, meaning you get a wheel and 5NM DD base for under 400 EUR/USD if you also add a set of pedals, which is pretty awesome if you don’t want the pedals they bundle in their other Ready2Race bundles.

If our reviews have helped you, and you’d like to help make sure Boosted Media can keep reviewing Sim Racing Hardware, by purchasing your Fanatec gear through these links a small percentage of your sale will come back to us and no additional cost to you.  Your support here is very much appreciated.
