Our Pineapple Grips for the Moza GS Wheel are now available to pre-order* Designed using the same engineering techniques implemented in our Fanatec grips, we launch with the Pineapple Grips Standard Edition in a choice of 9 Faux Leathers. *currently shipping 13th August.
WARNING!!! PLEASE BE AWARE THAT ITALIAN CUSTOMS IS BY FAR THE SLOWEST OF ANY OF THE COUNTRIES WE HAVE SOLD INTO SO FAR.
OUR GRIPS NORMALLY LEAVE THE UK WITHIN 48 HOURS BUT NORMALLY TAKE 4 TO 6 WEEKS TO CLEAR ITALIAN CUSTOMS! WE ARE NOT SURE OF THE REASON BUT IT IS CONSISTENTLY THE SLOWEST AND WE DO UNDERSTAND CUSTOMERS FRUSTRATIONS (HENCE WHY WE DECIDED TO PRE-WARN YOU).
WE CANNOT SPEED UP THE PROCESS SO ONLY PURCHASE FROM ITALY IF YOU DO NOT MIND A POTENTIALLY LONG WAIT.
We are now using eco-friendly packaging. The outer has now changed from a cardboard envelope to a proper compact box. The box is made from one side in recycled card and the other in recyclable card. This box has been designed to stay within royal mail's 25mm maximum height, to keep international shipping costs down. The plastic grip retainers, cardboard mounting sleeve and plastic bags have all gone and in its place, new biodegradable (compostable) bags. There is also a coloured card divider (colour matched to your grip choice) to protect rubbing between grips during transit.
We hope you like the new look!

13th October 2021 - We have just received a fantastic review of our product from Will Ford of Boosted Media. Inevitably this has seen sales "spike" of the product. If you are interested in purchasing our product please bear in mind there is currently an ever increasing demand so only place an order if you are ok with the current lead times (see at top of website for the latest estimations). All grips are genuinely hand built with care and attention so we promise they are worth the wait... Peter
31st August 2021 - Teqqles Does Sim Racing's David Long recently did an in-depth review of our product and services including a full video installation guide (go to 2 mins 58 secs)....
29th AUgust 2022 - The SimPit's legendary Shaun Cole recently did an in-depth review of our product and services....
Kenny said.... "These chunky grips are game changers. The Fanatec V2.5X rim size caused a lot of cramping in my hands during long sessions but these feel so natural and the finish miles ahead of how the Alcantara felt. Install was simple and well explained in the product guide. Great Product!"
Kenny said.... "The wheel covers by Pineapple Grips are incredible. This hobby ain't cheap so why not cover what you love!"
Michael said...."The grips have exceeded my expectations! Both in fit and feel I think some people would struggle to differentiate them from OEM parts! I'm now able to use my rims without fear of wearing out the alcantara. Worth every penny."
Butch said...."Hey Peter!! I just wanted to send a message with an image of the installed grips.. Friggin’ LOVE them!! Amazing work!!"
Shaun said...."Very Sexy!!!!" ( Grip Fatigue - Are your Fanatec Formula Rim grips worn out? - Pineapple Grips to the rescue!! - YouTube)
Stefano said..."I've just finished installing the Pineapple Grips on my Fanatec Formula Carbon.
It feels great, thank you so much for this amazing service! Please feel free to use the attached photos as you wish.
I am so satisfied that I think I'm going to send the original grips back for refit."
Luke said..."Just received and fitted my grips, couldn’t find on your website where to leave a review. But just wanted to let you guys how happy I am with them. Great fit and amazing quality. I’ve recommended you to a few friends who are also in the market for new grips. Wish you guys the best of luck and I will definitely be a returning customer."
Daniel said...."I’m absolutely in love with the recover you did. It genuinely looks like it should come out from Fanatec looking like this. I took time to look at each half and I’m so impressed with how well it’s been done.
I honestly couldn’t be happier with the result. Teamed with my new Advanced Paddle Module it’s really transformed the look and feel of my wheel."
Markus said.... "After I had cleared the handles, they were installed immediately. As you can see the handles look wonderful!"
Kamran was not too confident in doing the grip replacement for his Podium wheel himself (Fanatec blue Alcantara grips to Pineapple Grips Black Faux Leather) so he approached us here at Pineapple Grips where we were more than happy to help.
Michael said...."Absolutely BETTER than Fanatec's original grips - Feels AWESOME. I can't believe no one's done this yet and done it this good."
Eugene was our first ever customer. He put his faith in us very early and we didnt let him down....He sent over his very worn black Alcantara fanatec grips for a refresh. Eugene hates wearing gloves so wanted a solution that gave him good grip but also good wear resistance.
*pineapple grips design is continually being improved in appearance and design functionality and therefore is subject to change without notice, but it will always remain compatible with the Fanatec Formula Wheel range listed on our website.
Further personlise your new Pineapple Grips with up to 10 characters, bespoke printed in a raised and painted format.
Subtly placed on the left grip thumbstick surround, the default will be a colour match. But, we can always change it to any one of the other 7 standard colours if you prefer or just leave unpainted.
Fanatec Formula Steering Wheel
Early builds do not have removable grips, latter ones do. Check for screws on the rear of the grips which means its compatible.
