Logitech G, a gaming-focused division of the parent company, today announced three new accessories aimed at the professional sim racing crowd. The Logitech G PRO racing wheel features a high-end direct drive motor and support for the Trueforce feedback engine, allowing for an incredibly responsive and intense simulated driving experience.

Alongside the wheel, Logitech G PRO pedals are designed as a companion set and feature a modular design. A customizable layout allows for the complete removal of individual pedals for semi-automatic racing, and the brake features a load-cell sensor rated for up 100kg of force. Consistency is the primary aim of these high-end pedals, with hall effect sensors on the gas and clutch designed to endure a lifetime of use.
