Turtle Beach are well-established within the gaming industry, with their headsets found across major retailers throughout the world. They also sell a selection of Flight Sim hardware.

They now enter the Sim Racing scene with their VelocityOne Race package, comprising of a Sim Racing Wheel and Pedal System complete with a 300mm D Shape Wheel with an array of buttons and dials, a 7.2NM Peak Direct Drive wheel base with integrated dash, button box, and a 3 pedal set with Load Cell brake.

The complete package will set you back US$649, which is competitive given how much you get in the package, but is a significant investment in a market where there are quite a few options.

So for around twice the price of a Logitech G923, and similarly priced to some of the Fanatec Ready To Race Bundles, the Turtle Beach VelocityOne Race needs to deliver on more than just the feature list.

We took a close look at Turtle Beach’s first Sim Racing product to see if the build quality and overall user experience of the VelocityOne Race is worth your attention and a place in your gaming setup.
