For years Logitech has been making some of the most popular racing simulator wheels and pedals but sadly they seem to get clamped onto crappy desks or mocked up lounge room arrangements – that is until now – with the Playseat Trophy Logitech G Edition.
We’re currently reviewing the latest Logitech racing wheel the Pro – and boy, is it a cracker. At EFTM we’re fortunate enough to have a Playseat F1 Ultimate at the office and an original Red Bull F1 Playseat at home, so we can put these wheels on something that makes me feel like I’m a driver.
For those looking for something comfortable and to take their racing to the next level, it looks like the Playseat Trophy Logitech G Edition will be a winner. It’s the same Playseat Trophy chair, just with some solid Logitech branding and customisation.
At $999 it’s not cheap, but it’s also not short on quality. A solid frame keeps everything in place, with the seat seemingly floating at the back, with adjustable wheel and pedal positions for all sizes of driver
Jim Hoey, head of simulation marketing at Logitech G says “With more than 20 years of research and working with pro drivers, Playseat® has become the de facto standard for delivering unrivalled, real-track realism for drivers around the world,”
“The Playseat® Trophy-Logitech G Edition works great with our recently announced PRO Racing Wheel and PRO Racing Pedals. Now drivers will have the correct setup and racing position to feel the thrill of racing.”
Tako Dijkman, CEO at Playseat added “Logitech G and sim racing are inextricably linked. From the early days of racing games to the modern simulation masterpieces that parallel reality—which IRL racing professionals use to train—Logitech G has provided continuous innovation for racing and simulation enthusiasts at home,”
“Because Logitech G provides design and technology innovation unlike any other in the world, it seems only natural for us to pair our revolutionary products with theirs. This partnership has enabled us to create a truly one-of-a-kind racing rig. With a foundational legacy in the simulation industry and our combined DNA of breakthrough engineering, we can bring the most versatile and immersive racing solution to more people who want to experience the thrill of racing.”
Here are the features of the Playseat Trophy Logitech G Edition
STRENGTH & QUALITY– The patented and revolutionary design has set a new standard for the ultimate, immersive racing experience. The frame is made out of lightweight carbon steel and is developed to provide extreme rigidity. Durable powder coating finish, high-grade steel alloys, anodised aluminium parts, and the use of PU leather allow for unrivalled durability for in-home and professional use. This game-changing racing seat is capable of supporting the full range of Logitech G Wheel and Pedal products, including additional accessories by using add-ons.
ActiFit™️ MATERIAL– The Playseat® Trophy-Logitech G Edition racing seat allows racing enthusiasts, of any age or size, to experience the thrill of racing, just like in a real race car. This seat has been developed with Playseat®’s Innovative ActiFit™️ material, which comfortably conforms to your body to give you the best support and allows you to feel the full input from your Logitech G wheel products. The ActiFit™️ material also dissipates heat, allowing for racing in long stints without overheating.
FULLY ADJUSTABLE– The Playseat® Trophy-Logitech G Edition has a fully adjustable seat, pedal plate, and steering plate, to provide ultimate flexibility in wheel and pedal positioning. The seat can tilt forward, backward, and move up or down to give you the ideal driving position to suit any racing style from single seater to stock car.
OPEN DESIGN– The open cockpit design allows free movement of the legs for throttle, brake, and clutch for optimal performance. The backrest can recline separately and provides additional, fully adjustable lumbar support as needed. The seat has a built-in option to make the seating area softer or more firm depending on preference.
ADJUSTABLE PEDAL PLATE– Another unique feature of the Playseat Trophy-Logitech G Edition is the forward and backward movement of the pedal plate. This was strategically developed to accommodate any adjustments needed to suit multiple racing drivers quickly. To provide high rigidity in all circumstances, these adjustments can be bolted down to be completely tolerance free.
LIGHTWEIGHT & EASY TO STORE– The Playseat® Trophy-Logitech G Edition’s carbon steel frame is strong and exceptionally lightweight. At 17 kg, it’s one of the lightest chairs on the market. The Trophy’s design and weight are ideal for easy storage when not in use.
