Logitech has been involved in sim racing for a long time stretching back over a decade. Primarily Logitech has focused on entry-level sim racing products, but during the past few years ventured beyond and into the realms of direct drive sim racing.

With a few Logitech racing wheels, pedals and peripherals available to buy today, I thought it’d be good to take a deeper look at Logitech’s sim racing ecosystem.

Logitech racing wheels

The first area that I want to look at is Logitech’s racing wheel lineup. This is primarily where Logitech focus a lot of its energy, with its racing wheels making up the majority of its ecosystem. While Logitech has released a more powerful direct drive racing wheel, they do still have a variety of options in the budget racing wheel space.

Below is an overview of each racing wheel that Logitech currently sell.

You can see that the older G29 and G920 are still available to buy at a lower price than the newer G923 racing wheel. The G923 introduced improved force feedback technology and TrueForce to the G29 form factor.

Finally, there is the most powerful Logitech racing wheel available, the Pro racing wheel. This is a direct drive wheel aimed to compete with premium racing wheels from brands such as Fanatec, MOZA and Thrustmaster.

Logitech G29 and G920

The first racing wheels I want to look at in more detail are the two oldest Logitech racing wheels available for sale. These are the G29 and G920 which were released in July and October 2015. These racing wheels are coming up to nearly ten years old, but are still being produced by Logitech and are widely available.

The Logitech G29 took the formula from its predecessor, the Logitech G27. That was a budget-friendly racing wheel that was widely compatible with consoles and most racing games, making it one of the best options for people’s first-ever racing wheel.

Logitech G29 vs G920

The G29 was no different and followed these key points. Logitech updated the design of the G27 to produce a much more modern-looking racing wheel with the G29. It was constructed with leather on the handgrips and a metal faceplate making this wheel feel more premium than any Logitech racing wheel that came before.

While the G29 is compatible with both Xbox and PlayStation consoles, you do need to ensure you’re buying the correct version as no single Logitech racing wheel is directly compatible with both consoles. Instead, there are two different versions of Logitech’s entry-level racing wheel.

The Logitech G29 is PS4 and PS5 compatible, while the Logitech G920 is Xbox compatible. As well as different console compatibility, both racing wheels look different as well. The G29 has more features than the G920 including rev lights, extra buttons and a rotating encoder.

The reason the PlayStation-compatible Logitech G29 has more features than the G920 is that Xbox restricts third-party peripherals to only using specific inputs. This led to certain inputs such as the rotational encoder and extra buttons not working with Xbox consoles. So Logitech decided to remove them completely from the Xbox-compatible G920.

Inside, both the G29 and G920 are almost identical. Both produce the same force feedback and both feel the same to race with. With the introduction of the newer G923, both the G29 and G920 received a price cut, making them Logitech’s cheapest racing wheel.

Logitech G923 Racing Wheel

In August 2020, Logitech released its newest racing wheel, the G923. This looked an awful lot like the G29 that was released five years earlier. However, it was packing a variety of improvements, making this the next iteration of Logitech’s budget racing wheels.

The outside of the Logitech G923 racing wheel took the same design that the PlayStation-compatible G29 had and finished it with an all-black colour scheme. Internally though, the G923 was improved. It introduced a brand-new technology called TrueForce.

This improvement to the force feedback allowed the racing wheel to take the in-game audio and translate it into vibration effects. This meant that as you rev your engine and do other in-game activities, you will feel extra vibrations through the steering wheel.

Logitech also tweaked the overall force feedback performance, increasing the overall strength ever-so-slightly. The last improvement was with the pedal set that is included with the Logitech G923 racing wheel. The brake pedal was much stiffer than before in an attempt to feel more realistic and progressive.

The Logitech G923 replaced the G29 and G920 as the best budget racing wheel you could buy. However, with the G29 and G920 still available to buy, the G923 was slightly more expensive. Read this Logitech G923 review.

Logitech Pro Racing Wheel

The last racing wheel that you can currently buy from Logitech is the Pro Racing Wheel. This is a big departure from the normal Logitech formula of budget-friendly wheels. The Logitech Pro Racing wheel is a direct drive wheel that produces up to 11Nm of peak torque from its large motor.

Priced at £/$999.99, it is much more premium than the Logitech G29 or G923 racing wheels. This is a serious racing wheel aimed at competing with racing wheels from other popular sim racing brands. The Logitech Pro Wheel is the first to feature a detachable steering wheel, meaning it can be upgraded potentially in the future if more wheel rims are released.

The Logitech Pro wheel differs from other Logitech sim racing products in another area as well, and that is that it doesn’t include any pedals. All previous Logitech sim racing bundles have included everything you need to go sim racing which includes the pedals. Instead, Logitech sells a set of Pro Racing Pedals separately for an additional price.

The performance on offer from the Pro Racing Wheel is leagues ahead of the G923 thanks to its direct drive technology. There is a much larger internal motor that is mounted directly to the steering shaft. This lets more detail and fidelity through as well as allowing for more extreme performance.

Logitech sim racing pedals

If you are buying either the Logitech G923 or the older G29, you don’t need to worry too much about sim racing pedals. Both of those bundles include a set of pedals with the racing wheel. This makes them incredibly plug-and-play. Simply connect the included pedals to the rear of your racing wheel and you can start racing.

The difference with the more premium Logitech to Racing Wheel is that it doesn’t come bundled with a set of pedals. Instead, you have the choice to use sim racing pedals from a different brand such as Fanatec, Thrustmaster, Asetek or someone different. Or, you can purchase the Logitech Pro Pedals.

If you are planning on sim racing on an Xbox or PS5 console and want to get the Logitech Pro Racing Wheel, you will be required to buy the Logitech Pro Pedals. This is because, on console, you cannot mix and match sim racing products from different brands. However, if you race on PC, you can use whichever pedal set you like with a Logitech Pro wheel.

Logitech Pro Pedals

The only set of pedals that Logitech sell individually are the Pro Pedals. These were released at the same time as the Logitech Pro Racing Wheel, and they feature premium upgrades to fit the “Pro” name.

The brake pedal in particular sees the biggest upgrade with a load cell sensor. This style of sensor measures the pressure applied to the pedal rather than the distance that the pedal travels. By implementing a load cell sensor, you can brake much more consistently and braking feels much more realistic as well.

As well as the load cell brake pedal that is vastly superior to the brake on the cheaper G29 and G923 pedals, you also get a lot more customisation. You can adjust elements from the travel of each pedal, the pedal plate position and the spacing between each pedal.

The Pro pedals are a great set of sim racing pedals. However, they do come with a rather high price tag. They cost £/$349.99 which puts them in a mid to higher price point for a set of load cell pedals.

Other Logitech peripherals

Outside of its racing wheels and the Pro pedals, Logitech has a rather small sim racing ecosystem compared to other brands. There are just two other items that you can purchase from Logitech.

There is the Driving Force Shifter which is a H-pattern shifter compatible with the G29, G920 and G923 racing wheels. Then there is a Logitech G Racing Adapter. This adapter lets you mix and match various Logitech sim racing products. You can use a set of Logitech G923 pedals with the Pro Racing wheel or vice versa by using the adapter.

Where to buy Logitech sim racing products

Logitech sells its sim racing products at a range of different retailers and resellers. You can buy all of Logitech’s sim racing products from its website, which is one of the places I would recommend. By purchasing through the Logitech store, you get a full manufacturer’s warranty should anything go wrong. However, often you can find products cheaper at different retailers.

One retailer that often sells Logitech sim racing products at a lower price is Amazon. They have a good selection of pretty much all of Logitech’s racing products, and they are normally a lower price than from Logitech directly.

Below are quick links to both Logitech’s store and Logitech products on Amazon.
