The latest addition from Gomez Sim Industries is the X-29, a rugged-looking, formula-style sim racing steering wheel with the familiar top-class build quality. Gomez Sim Industries recently announced their latest weapon and entry-level model, the GSI X-29. And wow, what an incredibly beautiful steering wheel! We are raving about this new entry-level model from GSI. Want to know more? Then read on quickly!

GSI does not compromise with the X-29

The GSI X-29 steering wheel is ideal for any (semi) professional sim racer. With only the best materials and construction, it feels just like rock-solid immersion without any flex or compromise. With this, GSI has, as with their top product the GSI Hyper P1, made no compromises in quality and materials. Indeed, with the X-29, GSI has suddenly become a serious competitor to the popular GRID MPX Sim Racing Steering Wheel.

Material and finishing

The steering wheel is made with two main materials: 6061 aluminium and direct-injected silicone rubber grips for maximum grip and comfort while racing. In terms of materials finish, you can choose from aluminium or carbon fibre.

The handlebar features no less than 10 illuminated LED pushbuttons, a pair of multi-switches, three rotary knobs and, at the back of the base model, a pair of manual switches. More than enough options to quickly adjust on your handlebars! A big plus as far as we're concerned.

GSI X-29

The perfect steering wheel with impeccable quality

Without a doubt, the perfect steering wheel for the unyielding sim racer at an affordable price. Just by looking at the X-29, you will be overwhelmed by the impeccable quality and new standard that GSI sets with it. The X-29 is a joy to behold!

Price of the GSI X-29

With a price tag starting from ? 601.95 ($650 USD), the X-29 seems to be on the expensive side and the higher price segment. However, by GSI standards, where quality is paramount, this is their cheapest entry-level model to date. Marketing-wise, it is an interesting move by the US manufacturer to include a cheaper model in their range. By doing so, they lower the threshold for potential customers to experience GSI's quality.

Additional options

The X-29 steering wheel from Gomez Sim Industries is a Formula style steering wheel with a button pattern. The "entry-level" model still comes with many of the usual GSI options and features. For an extra cost of just under ? 180 euros, you have a total of 4 pedals at the back with two extra (dual clutch) shifters. If you opt for the carbon fibre finish, you will pay a good ? 50 euros extra.
