Fanatec DD2 Podium Wheel Base for PC and XBOX One
The definitive direct drive system
Podium wheelbases use an outrunner-type motor specifically designed for sim racing. Instead of using any industrial motor, our custom motors are custom built with no compromise for sim racing. Excellent acceleration, ultra-low cogging and exceptional holding torque performance provide an unprecedented driving experience.
German design with 5-year warranty
The Podium DD2 is the ultimate expression of our direct drive technology, thanks to our robust electronics designed for its extreme torque levels. Built with German precision and built to last for many years, the Podium DD2 is suitable for commercial and professional use; This is the last wheelbase you'll ever need.
Direct drive without the hassle
It's all in the details. Our thousands of design times mean you can just ride and enjoy. The endless rotation of our direct drive motor inspired the development of a unique solution to transfer data and power to the wheel inputs and display it wirelessly. This means no USB cables flying around that can be easily damaged and make it difficult to keep the wheel spinning in a drift.
Fully certified, Plug and Play
The Podium DD2 is the first plug-and-play direct-drive wheelbase with integrated electronics in the main housing. It is as easy to set up as our CSL and ClubSport series products. Rigorous EMI and ESD testing ensures stability and longevity.
Ready for the future
Not only is the Podium DD2 fully compatible with the existing Fanatec ecosystem, it is also prepared for future upgrades.
On the front of the housing is an OLED display. This offers endless possibilities, not only for tuning your wheelbase, but also features for advanced users, displaying real-time motor and forced feedback data. Check temperatures, torque curves and avoid force feedback. Too complicated? Just enjoy the graphics.
Full compatibility with previous versions
Our proven QR for automotive class has been upgraded with a new locking system, maintaining compatibility with all existing Fanatec steering wheels, as well as being fully interchangeable. All new wheel bases and steering wheels have interchangeable quick release fasteners; in the future you will have the option to upgrade to a new QR system.
