Replacement shifters for the Fanatec Formula wheel.

We are delighted to announce the launch of our new gear shifters for the Fanatec Formula wheel rim.

 

 

If these are not in stock we can normally make and ship them in 2 days.

New version launched 16th Feb 2018.  With several improvements the new version has a stronger 3mm carbon fibre arm and the shifter is a little wider.  These changes make the shifter stronger and drastically reduce flex. The tollerneces are improved as well making a better finished item.

From the 1st October 2019 these shifters now have a metal bearing on the shaft and we treat the arm sides with anti friction material to give a smoother feel.

Will fit the following Fanatec wheels

  • Formula F1
  • Formula Carbon F1
  • ClubSport Steering Wheel F1® Esports
  • Universal Hub (Requires spacer kit which is included)
  • F1 2018 Limited Edition (Requires spacer kit which is included)
  • F1 2019 Limited Edition (Requires spacer kit which is included)
  • Formula V2 (Requires spacer kit which is included)
  • Podium Hub (Has different cable plug)

Different paddles are available.

Magnets...

The magnets used as standard are 15mm diameter N52 strength rare earth of the highest quality. During our research we found that not all magnets are the same quality and strength despite having the same specification.  We offer 3mm tall and 5mm tall options.  The 3mm tall will offer a good amount of resistance and return spring with a quiet operation.  The 5mm thick offer an enhanced resistance and return spring and will make a snapping sound on return.  Most customers choose the 5mm option.  The magnets are lightly glued in place, we can offer a set of each size and not glue them so you can try both sizes.  be warned though they are very brittle and can break easily when chnaging them over.

 

Transform your Fanatec wheel...

    

Quality assured...

Our gear shifters are a high quality construction made from solid carbon fiber and rare earth magnets. This gives a really solid and positive gear change feel. The shifter is compact and light.

  • Made from multi-layer carbon fiber.
  • High strength N52 rare earth magnets.
  • Stainless steel axis.
  • Cherry IP67 micro switch.
  • Supplied as a pair.

Each shifter is made using a CNC mill and the parts are then hand finished and assembled.  

Simple to fit...

The design of the gear shifter makes changing over from the standard a very quick and easy process. You do not need to take the wheel apart, simply remove the two bolts holding on the original shifter using the supplied 4mm hex key and use the same bolts to fit the new one. The shifter cable has the correct plug at the end to slot straight into the Fanatec wheel, so again, no messing about with soldering. 

Fitting the bolts...

Because the new shifters are a little wider to give additional strength and rigidity, you need a good quality ball end hex key to fit them... This is now included in the box with the shifter set.  You will need to install them using the ball end of the hex key at an angle and tighten each side a little at a time.  This is even more important if using the Universal Hub Spacer, but we promise fitting is not dificult and works perfectly with the supplied hex key.

Take a few minutes to watch our installation video to see just how easy it is...

Fantastic Product and Great Service
I have had these shifters installed now for nearly a week. I have to say these have completely transformed the Fanatec Formula rim. Simon has been a pleasure to deal with, he's pationate about his product and very helpful and quick to respond to any issues or queries you might have. The first unit i received I had a small issue (no fault of Simons, was a faulty switch from an early batch that has since been resolved), but regardless, he was super quick to get a replacement sent out which arrived the following day via special delivery. You can't ask for more than that really.

These shifters are of the highest quality. The snap action feels very positive. The size and positioning of each paddle are perfect. I recently upgraded a lot of my Sim Racing gear and spent thousanads. This probably being the cheapest upgrade and i can honeslty say it's the one I've been most impressed with

Anyone with a Fanatec Formula rim should buy a set of these, you won't regret it!

Fanatec Formula Shifters
I like these shifters a lot, they are a huge step up from the very average stock shifters. They have a proper satisfying click when you shift, and they look much better as well.

PC/XB1/PS4 universal hub upgrade.
This shifter/paddle set works flawlessly and the feel and sound from the unit is excellent. I'm using a Momo Mod 30 wheel and the shifter/paddle placement is an absolutely perfect match for this wheel, so much more comfortable than the stock unit. Installation is very straight forward, I like to make sure everything is perfect and it only took about 45 minutes. This is a high quality shifter set the materials look beautiful and at this price it's a must have upgrade. Thanks SRM.

Replacement Fanatec Shifters
I bought these shifters to use on my Porsche 918 wheel after consulting with Simon to understand the minor difficulties involved when installing to this rim. I have to say that communication with Simon was swift, comprehensive, and first class. this convinced me to go ahead with the purchase.

It was a little fiddly to attach them to this wheel, but worth the hassle. They have a precise response and are a noticeable improvement to what is already a very good wheel. I used the GT3 paddles and they feel and look excellent.

Thank you Simon!

Fantastic Shifter Set for Fanatec
I am using these shifters for a month now, they are made of high quality carbon and precisely fitted. I wanted a stronger snap action for the shifter so I went with upgraded magnets. Feeling of every shift is great. Using it with Momo Mod30, paddle size and position are perfect since you can move them to your liking. Installation process is straight forward. A must have upgrade to Fanatec.

Also, Simon is a great guy. He answered my emails very quickly and he is very helpful. He even added a new payment method to solve my situation. 10/10. Great service and product. Thank you, Simon.

Excellent service and product
I have other wheels with carbon fibre magnetic shifters from elsewhere so I have a baseline expectation, and the workmanship of these are on the same level. Excellent quality.

I've had my eye on replacing the stock shifters on my Formula wheel for some time to improve the placement of the paddles which have always felt a bit awkward. These are a great upgrade, and now feels perfect. Also, having become accustomed to the added tactile feel of magnetic shifters on my other wheels, it's nice have that too.

Fanatec Formula Carbon (PS4)
Wow what a transformation. I would never of expected to see shifters of this quality for commercial wheels made by Fanatec for example, more expected on industrial scale DD wheels and high end setups.

However this eliminates that and provides a professional feeling shifter at a fraction of the professional price whilst maintaining impeccable standards and plug and play ability crucial for Console gamers like myself.

It's only when you realise using a magnetic shifter how you used the stock shifters but, that's the essence of understanding your issues and having the skill set to rectify that in an efficient high end purposeful product that actually dramatically increases the "Sim" feeling to this wheel.

I can't thank you enough.

Takes the Universal Hub to a new level
The one thing that disappointed me with the Fanatec Xbox Hub was the OEM shifters.  They felt no better than the shifters on the old Logitech or Thrustmaster wheels that I have used in the past.  That has all changed now with these shifters from Simon.  They are in a different class.  The microswitches are extremely high quality, there is no chance of a missed shift with these.  The tactile feel is second to none.  The 15mm magnet option I went for feels just right for me.  I guess you can tell from this review that I am very impressed.  If you are serious about Sim racing, and if you have Fanatec kit, which you have probably have reading this review, then I can report that these are a mandatory upgrade in my book.  Any questions I had about the product were answered very quickly, and Simon is a true gentleman.

I purchase these, together with a Fanatec wheel from Simon.

I won't go into specifics, but after I received my wheel, there were some things about the Fanatec design that I found I didn't like.

Simon patiently worked with me to make things just how I like them.

SRM gets my highest recommendation.

Great shifters, huge upgrade over stock fanatec(universal hub). Worth the price for sure. Only thing to make them better would be spacers to move the paddles farther or closer to you.

Universal hub paddle shifters
These paddle shifters completely change your sim racing experience, The finish is beautiful to look at, there's no flex, the magnets are strong giving a very distinct snap action, Simon was great in giving me extra information on the paddle shifters with quick replies, If I get any new wheel rims I'll certainly be buying again.

Excellent shifters and service
As other reviews have said, the difference these make over the standard Fanatec shifters is remarkable. But the thing that struck me most was the quality of the finish, they look and feel fantastic. I went for the GTStyle 1 paddles and they're downright beautiful. Simon is also a pleasure to deal with and was happy to answer any queries I had.

Overall, thoroughly recommended!

Fantastic !
Purchased October 12th and arrived the following Tuesday as it was the weekend.  

I will break the review in to a few points,

    Delivery and packaging were First class. In a timely fashion and very secure.  

    Inside the box was the Shifters and you can see the craftmanship that had gone into them. Very impressive. The Universal hub spacer was inside the box that ordered, and I would recommend using this as it lift the mounting point way from the wheel side wall. For me I wanted it to be just perfect and with this it was.  

    I watched the YouTube video first and its very easy to understand and explains everything you need to know.  

    Installation took less than Ten minutes for both shifters including the hub spacers. Use the 4mm bolts from the hub spacers, they are longer.  

    Initial feel are fantastic and jumping into a GT3 race on Iracing at Bathurst with a full field and only raced this circuit once before I wasn’t expecting anything. The response from the shifters was incredible and fast fluid and never missed a downshift. With the generic I sometimes had a double tap. The ability to relax your hands and not grip and yank the shifter for a down change massively improved my race experience. Going from a 30 strong field to 5th wasn’t just luck. IT gave me confidence, I felt more in control and the laps just seemed so much more fluid and not like I was slapping the back of the wheel like Bongos.

Highly recommended and a customer for life now.  

Kind Regards

Excellent!
Very fast delivery and fitted these to a Fanatec Formula carbon wheel in less than 15 minutes.
What a transformation! The feel and look is just what I wanted and so good to replace something that works so well straight out of the box.
I will be looking to replace my other shifters width these products soon.
Well done Simon, excellent product and customer service.
Thanks.

What a difference
After watching Barry from the sim racing garage on YouTube rave about how great these shifters were I decided to finally upgrade from my standard paddles, installation was easy apart from 1 of the bolts was a pig to loosen up from the original shifter as it seemed like it had been glued in, installation was a breeze the supplied ball Allen key was a blessing as the gap can be very narrow I was very happy that Simon anticipated this and provided 1.

Customer service has been excellent throughout responding to emails within a few hours.

Build quality and experience of shifting gears with these paddles is 2nd to none.

A worthwhile upgrade to any sim rig!!!

Perfect shopping
Very perfect gear shifter, reviving my formula carbon, a wonderful shopping process with me and Simon. I make a small suggestion, if you can process one more shielding sheet, it will be more perfect to cover the displayed electronic board. Hope Simon can consider my opinion.

Replacement shifter
The four bolts are a bit too brittle. I tried to adjust my paddles and I already have one bolt with a warped head. Now I can't adjust one of the paddles...Unless I use a torx or the elastic band-trick. I just leave it as it is. The bolts and the nuts are the weakest link of the product.  Probably bolts from China / Chinesium. But only Simon knows

Now the good news: Great paddles. Smells quality. Installation can be bit of a hassle, but it's basically install and forget. It changes from a toyish shift-feeling to something more clicky-feeling, which is good.

Great product!
Few days ago I have decided to upgrade shifters on my Fanatec Formula Carbon Rim. I didn't like the feel that I was getting from original shifters as well as their size and position. So I bought SRM replacement shifters. Wow what a difference! I like that you actually need to use a bit of a force to shift, I like the noise that they make and how quickly they go back in to the position. Paddles are a bit bigger, better shaped and quite a bit thicker. And they look so much better matching my carbon rim.
Overall great quality product. Very fast shipping and delivery. Came nicely packaged. Very happy with the product. Highly recommended!

The tactile feel of the click is very pleasant. It is very light and can be upgraded without adding any extra inertia. If you are worried about the arm rubbing, a thin PTFE sheet will make it perfect.
