Fanatec has announced the CSL Elite Pedals V2

German swim racing giant Fanatec has this afternoon unveiled a new version of their wildly popular CSL Elite pedals and judging by the information provided, this looks to be a really attractive upgrade to already super affordable swim racing pedals. The brake is new, includes magnetic sensors and a load cell, and the CSL Elite V2 is built from steel and aluminum powder coated matte black. The price then? SEK 2999.

Excerpted from the official press release:
Magnetic sensors.
Both the throttle and brake axes use precision Hall-effect sensors. By measuring pedal position with magnets, the system is contactless, meaning no wear on the sensors and consistent performance.

Solid, full-metal design.
The pedal arms, faces, and heel rest are made from cast and machined aluminium, with a durable ‘powder-coated’ finish. Additional bracing towards the rear of the assembly helps with stiffness and stability under heavy load.

Brake with confidence.
The brake pedal has been completely reworked, with an all-new custom load cell sensor.

Muscle memory.
The load cell sensor measures pressure rather than position. Tuned to a genuine 90 kg (adjustable) at the pedal plate, this realistic level of resistance trains your muscle memory and you’ll brake with confidence and precision every time.

Dual-stage brake action.
The adjustable, tool-free elastomer stack incorporates a coil spring to simulate the initial movement of the brake pad to the disc. You can easily adjust the firmness of the pedal travel by selecting between elastomer springs (included).

Drive your way.
CSL Elite Pedals V2 connect directly to any supported FANATECĀ® Wheel Base via the included RJ12 cable. Alternatively, they can be used as a standalone USB device (on PC) using the included USB cable.

Choose your pedal surface.
Detachable rubber pads on the pedal faces give you the choice between high or low friction. For example, you might prefer more grip on the brake pedal for applying very high forces, but a slick throttle to assist with smooth acceleration out of corners.

Electronically adjustable.
The amount of braking force required can be easily tweaked through the Fanatec Tuning Menu (or Fanatec Control Panel on PC)*. Manual calibration of all three pedal axes is also possible.

Only metal, hall sensors and load cell brake with 90kg pressure. For 3000 bucks? Yes, thank you! Competitors charge more than double for the same type of product.
