Background and Identification
The Logitech G27 is an electronic gaming steering wheel for driving and racing simulators. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather and includes six programmable buttons, steel paddle shifters, and an LED shift indicator. The steering wheel features a smooth helical gear and a dual-motor force feedback system to realistically simulate road and car conditions. The six-speed shifting module also has eight programmable buttons and a directional pad. The pedal board includes three pedals, for acceleration, braking, and clutch. Many of the included parts are made of stainless steel, and the whole assembly is made with durability and superb performance in mind.
The G27's predecessor was the G25 steering wheel, and though they look very similar, the two have a few differences. First, the G25 does not have the helical gear system that the G27 does. This gear system makes steering the G27 much quieter and smoother than the G27. Also, the G25 included a switch to change from 'H-pattern" shifting to sequential shifting that was removed in the G27 model. Other differences between the two include stainless steel pedals (compared to the G25's aluminum pedals), and real leather on the steering wheel instead of fake leather.
