Logitech made a $599 cockpit to go with its $1,000 racing wheel - The Verge

Logitech G’s first racing cockpit costs $599 and is designed to fit its even costlier premium gaming wheels and pedals. The company teamed up with gaming chair maker Playseat to create the Playseat Trophy - Logitech G Edition — a rebadged version of Playseat’s fully adjustable Trophy cockpit.

Its seat is made with the same Actifit material, which is supposed to conform to your body and keep you cool while you’re on the virtual racetrack. You can also make adjustments to the seat hardness, the position of the backrest, the pedal, and the steering plates. The main difference between this cockpit and the one created by Playseat is that it features Logitech branding and a 37-pound dark gray carbon steel frame instead of black. Desk Chair For Gaming

Logitech’s marketing the pricey accessory as the ideal home for its G Pro Racing Wheel and Pro Racing Pedals, although you can still use it with the wheels and pedals from other brands, like Thrustmaster. “The Playseat Trophy-Logitech G Edition works great with our recently announced PRO Racing Wheel and PRO Racing Pedals,” Jim Hoey, the head of simulation marketing at Logitech G, says in a statement. “Now drivers will have the correct setup and racing position to feel the thrill of racing.”

Unlike other racing wheels made by Logitech, the G Pro Racing Wheel comes with Direct Drive technology that eliminates the gears or belts between the steering wheel and the motor, allowing for more immersive force feedback when racing. But with the Pro Racing Wheel priced at $999.99 and the pedals costing $349.99, you’re looking at nearly $2,000 for the whole setup including the cockpit, which probably makes it better suited for pro racing sim players or hardcore hobbyists.
