The sim racing scene is growing fast and, as the environment is changing rapidly, it could be tricky to stay up-to-date. For instance, there are a number of alternatives to direct drive wheelbase on the market and we want to support our beloved community by providing the greatest compatibility possible with our steering wheels while letting you enjoy the challenge at your own pace.
Here at Cube Controls, we work continuously hard to fuel your passion for sim racing and eSports. Making sure that the cutting-edge controllers and unique design of our Formula collection and GT steering wheels can be enjoyed in the greatest and easiest way possible is part of our job.
To ensure the best experience we thought that could be useful a little extra help so, here’s our Comprehensive Guide to Cube Controls Products Compatibility to see if you can jump into the game with us.
Before to start let’s provide some context for the beginners. If you are looking for a great sim experience definitely you have to evaluate the purchase of a Direct Drive Wheel Base. This hardware works as a bridge between your PC and the steering wheel attached to it and produces analogic feedback while you driving, a Force Feedback (FFB). The FFB is a counterforce that follows your commands resulting in a unique sense of reality each time your car is drifting or when you change quickly the direction.
The market is plenty of solutions to improve the quality of your simulations and with an environment full of alternatives could be tricky to understand the level of compatibility, that’s why we wrote this guide.
Currently, all Cube Controls racing wheels are compatible with the best and well-selling direct-drive wheelbases and arrive in your hands with the tool-kit needed to ease the assembly, so if you need a quick adrenaline boost to your races you can consider combining our top-notch steering wheels with the rest of your racing setup. To do so, you just need to check if your current wheelbase needs an adapter. We enhanced the compatibility range introducing our special feature, the Universal Hub, which provides a 50.8mm and 70mm bolt pattern that covers almost the entire sim racing direct-drive catalogue.
Our integrated Universal Hub in addition to an adapter provides a wider range of compatibility. So let’s dig in and see how it works with different brands.
If you are planning to improve your sim experience and you have a Logitech wheelbase setup, you may need an adapter. We can’t guarantee full compatibility due to the latest upgrades released by Logitech.
Thrustmaster owners can rely on a third-party Thrustmaster Adapter compatible with all screw-on quick-release models.

Fanatec DD wheelbases are still a top pick and many of you are asking for more details about compatibility with them. So, is Fanatec compatible with Cube Controls? Yes, our steering wheels can run even with these direct drive wheels. You just need a Fanatec Podium Hub adapter provided by the parent company. Likewise for Accuforce Steering Systems, which requires an Accuforce adapter. If your Cube Controls Wheel is a CSX2 or a GTX has any electric interference with the base here’s our isolator.

With Simagic wheelbase setups, you just need to remove their quick-release and use the standard 50.8 pattern on it.
