Simraceway SRW-S1

Hands on: Steelseries Simraceway S1 Wheel

Adam Oxford at

Steelseries' Wii inspired column-free wheel has just arrived in the office for review in this month's mag. The Simraceway S1 is a cockpit controller with everything but the wheel removed. Grasp it in two hands and take to the track without worrying about whether you bolted it down firmly enough on your desk. Just wave it left and right to turn corners.

Is it a liberating experience experience to be free of those clunky desk mounts, or consolisation of the PC gone too far?

Steelseries Simraceway SRW-S1 out now

Wheels? Where we're going we don't need wheels. At least, not in the traditional sense of bolting a giant steering column to your desk and planting huge metal pedals beneath your chair.

Steelseries' new Simraceway SRW-S1 is a motion sensitive controller which works like the one that came with Mario Kart for the Wii, but has enough buttons to keep even the simmiest of driving sim fans happy.
