The Tahko GT-21 is SimuCube’s first sim racing steering wheel. IT is fully compatible with all SimuCube wheel bases and is designed to be a high-end sim racing wheel.
What is the Tahko GT-21 sim racing wheel?
This brand new sim racing steering wheel rim is the first from long-time sim racing wheelbase manufacturer Simucube. It is the first time Simucube have designed and manufactured their own first-party sim racing wheel rim. And it has been designed to work harmoniously with their wheelbase hardware.
Being a Simucube product, this steering wheel is designed for high-end sim racing. And it was even created with the help of professional drivers, to ensure it fits the bill perfectly.
Let’s take a look at this exciting new sim racing wheel, and see why you should be interested in it.
From the outset, you can see that the Tahko GT-21 is designed as a GT-style steering wheel. The wheel itself is semi-circular, with a flat bottom. In fact, it looks very similar to a Cube Controls GT Sport wheel.
On the face of the wheel itself are a whole host of buttons, designed to make sim racing as seamless as possible. These feature ten push buttons, a 7-way switch and a rotary encoder. These are laid out in a classic three-cluster layout, with three in each corner of the wheel.
These buttons and inputs will allow the sim racer to adjust force feedback settings in real-time while racing, as well as adjusting functions within the car itself such as traction control, ABS etc.
Simucube have ensured that the whole wheel stands up to some rigorous sim racing. It has been manufactured to an industrial level, meaning there shouldn’t be any flex at all during use.
Simucube have described the paddle shifters on the rear of the wheel as a combination of the best properties that other wheels offer. This allows the Tahko GT-21 to achieve an immersive paddle shifting experience for all-around racing requirements.
How much does the Simucube Tahko GT-21 cost?
The Simucube Tahko GT-21 is reasonably expensive, although it is in line with other competition from brands such as Cube Controls.
The price tag sits at a cool €822.96.
While this is more expensive than a regular sim racing wheel rim from brands such as Thrustmaster and Fanatec. It is actually not too badly priced for a professional wheel rim of this quality.
The Tahko GT-21 wheel rim is designed to compete with brands such as Cube Controls and Ascher racing, where sim racing gets as close as possible to reality. Wheel rims from these brands tend to cost more due to their more high-end design, putting the Tahko GT-21 in line in terms of pricing.
When will the Simucube Tahko GT-21 be available to buy?
The SimuCube Tahko GT-21 was released in November 2021, and is currently in stock to buy now.
How compatible is the Tahko GT-21?
Without a shadow of a doubt, the newly released Tahko GT-21 will be compatible with all current Simucube hardware. This means it will work like a dream with the Simucube wheelbases, from the Sport to the Pro and Ultimate models.
