Logitech, a leading innovator of gaming peripherals, today announced the Logitech® G29 Driving Force, a force feedback racing wheel licensed for PlayStation®4 (PS4™) and PlayStation®3 (PS3) and the Logitech® G920 Driving Force™, its first force feedback racing wheel available for Xbox One®, as well as PC, that will be available this fall. 



Built for precision racing and long-lasting reliability, the Logitech G29 Driving Force features a dual-motor force feedback transmission with anti-backlash helical gearing, hand-stitched leather-wrapped rim, and stainless steel throttle, brake, and clutch pedals.

 

Logitech G920 Driving Force is also compatible with the optional Driving Force Shifter, a six-speed manual gear stick with push-down reverse. This is the first Logitech racing wheel available for Xbox One.

 

Realistic Force Feedback

 

Engineered with dual-motor force feedback, the Logitech G29 Driving Force realistically simulates the feel of your car with weight shift, realistic road conditions and tire wear, so you can sense under- or over-steering, traction loss and more. With helical gears modeled after the gearing used in car transmissions, you get exceptionally smooth, quiet and precise steering action. Anti-backlash hardware also keeps the wheel and pedal input tight, to maximize control.




 

Durable Design

 

Built to last, the Logitech G29 Driving Force & Logitech G920 Driving Force features solid steel ball bearings in the wheel shaft, and stainless steel paddle shifters and pedals. High-quality, hand-stitched leather gives the Logitech G29 Driving Force & Logitech G920 Driving Force the look and feel of a high-performance racecar wheel, and ensures a more comfortable and durable user experience. Additionally, built-in clamps and bolt points allow you to securely mount the wheel to a table or racing seat to minimize shifting or wobbling during aggressive maneuvers.

 

Easy Access to Game Controls

 

For seamless access to racing controls, the D-Pad, console buttons and semi-automatic paddle shifters are conveniently located on the Logitech G29 Driving Force & Logitech G920 Driving Force. LED indicator lights tell you exactly when to shift, so you can maintain maximum acceleration without taking your eyes off the track. A 24-point selection dial and plus/minus buttons let you also fine-tune your driving preferences. 



 

Responsive Pedal Unit

 

The Logitech G29 Driving Force & Logitech G920 Driving Force comes with a separate floor pedal unit that lets you comfortably brake, accelerate and change gears, just as you would in an actual car, and also allows you to maintain a more realistic body position for driving. The nonlinear brake pedal mimics the performance of a pressure-sensitive brake system for a responsive, accurate braking feel. Additionally, the G29 includes a dedicated clutch, so gamers who want to test their abilities can have a truly immersive racing experience.


 

Optional Driving Force Shifter

 

Available as an optional add-on for  Logitech G920 Driving Force, the Driving Force Shifter is a six-speed manual gear stick with push-down reverse. The Driving Force Shifter features quality construction, with a solid steel gear shaft and hand-stitched leather boot and knob cover. Built-in clamps and bolt points also allow the Driving Force Shifter to be mounted securely.
