Logitech Announces Logitech┬« G27 Racing Wheel
Logitech - Aug. 17, 2009 - Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today announced the Logitech┬« G27 Racing Wheel. Designed to deliver the definitive sim racing experience for the PC and PLAYSTATION┬«3, the G27 features a powerful, dual-motor force feedback mechanism that smoothly and accurately delivers high-fidelity force effects to the hand-stitched leather wheel, so you can feel traction loss, weight shift, and the surface of the road. The helical gears deliver exceptionally quiet steering action, virtually eliminating noise and unwanted vibration. A six-speed gated shifter lets you choose exactly the right gear for the turn, while new RPM/shift indicator LEDs let you know just when to up- or down-shift. And the clutch pedal makes heel-and-toe downshifting possible, keeping your gear changes quick and your RPMs high all the way around the track. The Logitech G27 Racing Wheel is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe in September for a suggested retail price of $299.99 (U.S.).
