Six-Speed Shifter and Clutch Pedal The Logitech G25 Racing Wheel is the company´s first to include a six-speed gated shifter, complete with a push-down reverse gear, offering a new level of control. Now racers can quickly shift into any gear as they decelerate going into turns and accelerate out of them — rather than cycling through gears sequentially or hoping an automatic transmission selects the most appropriate gear. Advanced driving techniques such as heel-and-toe downshifting are made possible with the included clutch pedal.
Two-Motor Force Feedback Logitech, which has sold more force-feedback wheels than any other company, introduced the industry´s first two-motor force-feedback mechanism with the G25 wheel console, providing stronger and more precise feedback. With a second motor, the directional forces are more realistic and evenly distributed throughout the wheel — drivers will feel everything from the banks in the road to impact with walls, structures and other cars. The two-motor system is also much quieter than other force-feedback solutions.
Sturdy Design, Premium Materials The 11-inch wheel and the shift knob are wrapped in leather, providing comfortable grips over extended periods of intense racing. The wheel´s spokes and two paddle shifters are made of stainless steel, and the pedals consist of stainless-steel faces and steel frames. The pedal platform includes rubber feet that adhere to hardwood floors and a unique carpet grip system, ensuring that the pedals won´t shift or slide across the floor during a close race to the finish line. Both the shifter and steering console feature secure clamping systems and can be easily attached to a table or desktop.
900-Degree Steering, Advanced Controls The G25 wheel turns 900 degrees lock-to-lock, much like a typical race car, allowing drivers to navigate hairpin turns with greater accuracy. And with anti-backlash gearing, there is no slack in the steering response, making any race a smooth, realistic and quiet experience. The wheel also features 12 programmable buttons — four buttons on the wheel, and eight buttons and a directional pad on the shifter — allowing gamers to put the most important controls where they want them.

The Logitech® G25 Racing Wheel has lapped its predecessors and even the offerings from other companies that sell racing wheels in the under $1,000 price segment. No small accomplishment for a product with an MSRP of $299 USD.
We have worked with the G25 racing wheel for just over 3 weeks now and there hasn’t been a time where we have been disappointed. There have been friends come over and use it too and the return was all smiles. Logitech has hit a home run here and if the price can stay in the mid $200s, we at Techgage
Without a doubt the G25 is the best racing wheel that Logitech has ever produced. The steering is accurate to a tee, the force feedback is unparalleled and the feel of the pedals is realistic, all this combined greatly improves the experience you will get from any race game.

Racing games were meant to be played with a wheel. The option of being able to use either the paddle shifters, h pattern, or sequential shift mode is great depending on what you like and what you are playing. Although I enjoy using it, my biggest pet peeve is that either it gets in the way when it's not in use or that it takes a fair amount of space to store.
By far the best wheel ever. It is probably the best accessory i've ever purchased. If you are into racing games this is a must. the only weakness is the stiffness of the brake pedal - I have to push it so hard it slides on the wood floor :(
I've only used this with GRID for PC so far, but it adds a whole new dimension to the game. The pedals are great and absolutely destroy a gamepad with digital 0/100% only acceleration. No real cons, since I got it for $199 on sale (besides having to re-learn how to drive and temporarily driving like a rookie again!)
This is probably one of the best wheels you can have to experience racing games at the moment. It has excellent forcefeedback and a very good build quality overall. I've tried this game with Live for Speed, GTR2, and Grid so far. It works beautifully with LFS. I definitely recommend this to driving enthusiasts.
I bought this wheel to play racing games the way there are meant to be playedThis is by far the best steering wheel I have ever used. It adds a whole new dimension to racing games. Grid, TDU, NFS are much better and fun to play with the wheel. All the parts are high quality and feel right, just like in a car. It's great that there a clutch, brake and gas pedal. Also the H shifter is the best. Also the force feedback is great. I would highly recommend this wheel :)
This is, by far, the best steering wheel I've ever used. It adds a whole new level to racing games (whether they're actual driving sims, or simple arcade games like Need For Speed: Carbon). It works great on both my PC and PC3 (Gran Turismo 5!), which is a great bonus.
Overall this is pretty awesome. It's my first time purchasing something like this.....but I'm very pleased. I play more GT5P now than in the past... It's nice having 3 pedals and a 6 H shifterIt's currently mounted on a desk, but honestly looking into buying an actual game chair to mount on.Those go about 120-600 depending on quality and brand I guess.
I do recommend racing finatics to purchase this... if you're still unsure I would go on youtube and watch some of the people play...
I use this unit on a PC and I play GTLegends, GTR, GTR2,RFactor, NASCAR Sim Racing, Race 07 and GRID and I love it. My laptimes have improved considerably from using a keyboard and the fun-factor is off the chart.
I have been a racing Sim enthusiast for many years now and I can tell you this product is Exceptional! I have never use a wheel that is more realistic. Basically it is like they took the wheel off of a race car and adapted it for the PC.
