The CSL Pedals are another attempt by Fanatec to bring build quality and features that sim racers associate with high-end, professional-grade racing hardware to the masses at an affordable price. After their success in bringing Direct Drive technology to the mainstream via the CSL DD, consumers can now have an all-metal pedal set with a load cell brake pedal for a reasonable price.

While the CSL DD’s features relative to its price make it an outlier, the CSL Pedals including the Load Cell kit does have competition. Based on my experiences with entry to mid-tier pedals, the CSLs hold a distinct advantage in build quality, and they are the best pedals I’ve used at this price point.

Without the Load Cell Kit, the $80 / €80 asking price makes the CSL Pedals stand out in the sim hardware market. Add-on pedal sets under $100 / €100 are exceedingly rare, and there are none that I’ve come across that feature construction as robust as the CSL Pedals. The in-game feel of the pedals isn’t as head and shoulders above the competition in this price sector as the build quality, but it is more than adequate and should meet the needs of most sim racers.

Other than some frustrations with mounting them to my rig, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the CSL Pedals so far, and I strongly recommend them to anyone shopping for a set of pedals in this price range.
