Genius Speed Wheel 6 MT Racing Steering Wheel with Gear Shifter

Right out of the box, the Genius SW 6 MT is a good looking wheel. The use of all black as the foundation, with pops of red on the wheel and the use of the chromed plastic for the buttons is a sleek combo that anyone should be able to get into.

To the left of the large round badge at the center of the wheel you will find the four buttons of the provided D-pad that is in easy reach of your left thumb, while still securely gripping the wheel with that hand.

Under the badge, you have five more buttons. These are given an identity with the L2, Select, Menu, Start and R2. I also like the touch of the leather-like appearance of the center section of the wheel; it is just an extra step that could have been easily left out.

In easy reach of the right thumb, there are four more buttons provided using a PlayStation iconography with the Triangle, Square, X and O buttons.

Just behind the wheel, you will be able to feel a pair of curved paddle shifters. This allows you the option to use these for shifting of course, but you could program them to look behind you, or honk the horn or something corny.

To make life easier when looking to program the switches in any favourite driving game, the paddles are numbered.

Same goes for the paddle shifter on the right side of the wheel, but this time it has R1 painted on the black metal paddle.

Down on the base, to the right of the wheel, is the gear shifter with three switches in it. The buttons are marked L3 at the top of the stick, R3 at the bottom, and pushing the shifter to the right will press the L1 button. That is right; there are two L1 buttons on the setup.

Spinning the wheel around as if you were looking at the wheel from your monitor's perspective, the front cover for the internal components is designed to look like the tread on a tire.
