About this deal

It’s no secret that MOZA is taking the fight to Fanatec here, as the R5 bundle ticks very much the same box as the Gran Turismo DD Pro. The MOZA Racing ES Steering wheel is only available as part of the R5 bundle and is designed to maximise the cost to performance of this affordable sim racing bundle. Also, a slightly confusing design choice is to have three buttons that are all labelled pretty much the same thing.

small form factor aluminium base, a comparatively cheaper and more simplified wheel rim, a set of pedals (throttle and brake only), and a desk mount. It is fully selectable and customizable in the MOZA Pit House and significantly improves vehicle balance and smoothness during downshifts. There are no rotary encoders to be found and the layout looks similar to a lot of basic console compatible steering wheels.This is also hinted at with the buttons on the steering wheel which utilise the classic Xbox configuration of A, B, X and Y. They utilise the same footplate, and same all-metal pedal arm, but with slightly different pedal face plates. I do have to say that all of the buttons other than the radio and start buttons feel good to engage with.

Turning off the personalised advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive. You can simply ignore this and map the buttons to any in-game input you like, but it just seemed like a strange choice of wording to me. You can change the curve to allow for braking at the start or end of the pedal travel to be slower or faster depending on your preference.Each pedal is fitted with a precise Hall sensor to give you fine control over your footwork when driving, ensuring maximum consistency and performance. I’m going to start with the R5 wheel base as that is possibly the most intriguing part of this whole bundle. The clamp features two clamping points on the underside, with a very large area of adjustability, measuring around 8cm.

There’s almost not as much else to say when it comes to the overall feeling, as the R5 does pretty much what it says on the tin, which is a good thing.

There’s six programmable buttons, two joysticks and two rotary encoders, as well as a ten-LED shift indicator.

Disclaimer: Etsy assumes no responsibility for the accuracy, labelling, or content of sellers' listings and products. A - The MOZA R5 bundle comes packed with a table clamp which makes it easy to mount to any desk or table. This 13-inch rim is based on an aviation-grade aluminum frame, with microfiber leather grips and forged carbon fiber shifter paddles with magnetic actuation. And the spring design in the brake pedal doesn’t allow for any progression on the brake as you start to push it harder. Luckily they provide a desk mounting bracket with the bundle but on my rig, I found this mount to be too close to my knees.

As its own entity, the MOZA R5 is a well-produced, solid shout for anyone wanting to give sim racing on PC a try, and not wanting to shell out literal thousands for a top-end direct drive wheelbase. We often say that better hardware doesn’t make you faster but Pedals are a big exception to that rule.There are inputs for the Pedals and a dash on the rear but you cannot connect the handbrake directly to this unit. That’s just to make sure that absolutely everything I say is my own opinion, for better or for worse, that’s a risk that I take. The one saving grace is that you can completely change the linearity curve of each pedal using Moza’s Pit House software.
