DD2 motor permanently for DD1

" As you might know, all pre-order units of the Podium Wheel Base DD1 and the Podium Racing Wheel F1 have made use of the motor from the Podium Wheel Base DD2. We originally developed a dedicated DD1 motor but this did not meet our requirements. We therefore decided to use the big DD2 motor on the smaller models as well.

As this motor performs extremely well and new development of a dedicated DD1 motor would take quite some time, we decided to keep the DD2 motor for the lower spec models in the long run.

Functionality and specs remain the same but due to the much higher cost of the DD2 motor we are forced to increase the price of the Podium Wheel Base DD1 and the Podium Racing Wheel F1.

There’s still time to place pre-orders for these direct drive systems at their current prices, but effective from May 7th (09:00 UTC+2), the Podium Wheel Base DD1 will be priced at 1199,95 EUR, and the Podium Racing Wheel F1 will be 1599,95 EUR. The Podium Wheel Base DD2 price will remain at 1499,95 EUR.

Effective from the same date, the standard warranty for the Podium Wheel Base DD1 and Podium Racing Wheel F1 will increase from 2 years to 3 years for all new orders.

Of course there is a chance that we could change to a different DD1 motor in the future, but we would clearly communicate that in advance, and it will not be any time soon.

The entire first batch of Podium Series direct drive systems has now been shipped, and we’ve already been overwhelmed by the positive feedback from our early customers. We believe that the Podium Wheel Base DD1 and Podium Racing Wheel F1’s adjusted prices will continue to offer good value in terms of performance and features. Our recent Podium video series explains the advantages of our direct drive technology, and the quality of the ‘DD2’ motor is highlighted in our latest Motor Dynamics video on our YouTube channel.

Bear in mind that the combination of Podium Wheel Base DD1 PS4, ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 (V2 spec), and Podium Advanced Paddle Module in the Podium Racing Wheel F1 package still offers a significant price advantage over buying the same spec of products separately (DD1 + ClubSport F1 2019 wheel + APM = 1729,85 EUR)."
