Founded in Italy by racing enthusiasts, Cube Controls has carved a niche in the sim racing market with its premium, hand-crafted hardware. Their philosophy revolves around two key aspects: authentic motorsport experience and uncompromising Italian craftsmanship.

This brand spotlight will delve into the unique selling points of Cube Controls, exploring their product range, design approach, and the values they hold dear.

About Cube Controls

Born from the love of speed and a desire for real-world racing immersion, Cube Controls emerged from the sun-soaked shores of Sardinia, Italy. Founded by two individuals with contrasting backgrounds – an ex-motorcycle racer and a sim racer with a knack for DIY hardware – Cube Controls embodies the thrill of motorsport and translates it into meticulously crafted sim racing peripherals.

Their dedication to Italian craftsmanship shines through in each product. Steering wheels are hand-assembled, meticulously checked, and individually packed, with premium materials like carbon fiber and CNC-machined aluminum chosen for both performance and aesthetics. This artisanal approach extends to their design philosophy, drawing inspiration from real-world motorsport to deliver an authentic on-track feel within your virtual cockpit.

Cube Controls doesn't simply replicate racecar components; they collaborate with professional teams to gain insights and translate them into tangible benefits for sim racers. Whether you're a seasoned competitor or a passionate enthusiast, their hardware aims to bridge the gap between the virtual and the real, putting you in the driver's seat for an adrenaline-pumping experience.

Cube Controls products

Cube Controls doesn't just create sim racing hardware; they sculpt immersive experiences. Each product, meticulously hand-crafted in Italy, reflects their commitment to two core principles: uncompromising realism and Italian elegance.

Imagine gripping a steering wheel forged from the same materials found in real racecars, feeling the satisfying click of magnetic shifters, and immersing yourself in the tactile feedback of hand-stitched leather grips. That's the Cube Controls difference.

Whether you're a seasoned competitor pushing for tenths of a second or a passionate driver seeking the thrill of the virtual track, Cube Controls has something for you. Explore their range of premium steering wheels, button boxes, and accessories, each designed to elevate your sim racing experience and bring you closer to the real thing.
