    Great add on for Mario Kart

    Ok, let's be honest, do you NEED these wheels? No. Will you have fun playing with them? Absolutely! I purchased these so that my kids (4 and 3) could play Mario Kart 8 without feeling overwhelmed. The game features options for auto acceleration, tilt steering, and smart steering (keeps the player from driving completely off the track). With all of these options turned on and the joy-cons snapped into their wheels, anyone can feel like they're a veteran Mario Kart player. As someone who's been a gamer since the original NES of the 80's, it's so much fun to watch my kids enjoy themselves while playing a game that without these wheels and options be completely over their heads. I highly recommend purchasing these wheels.

    Works for what it is

    I haven't used the Nintendo wheels, but these seem to work perfectly fine for Mario Kart. I had no trouble fitting in the joycons into to wheels or taking them out, and the triggers work perfectly. The triggers have a decent amount of travel, but they really register the click with very little travel. My kids love the colors and think it's more fun than just using the joy cons alone. These are small as others have noted, but that's the standard for these wheels. I'm only taking off a star because it's really just a piece of plastic, and there is no cutout to show the controller light indicators. You can still sort of see them if you look at the gap between the wheel and the joy con, but other wheels seem to have a cutout for them.

    I purchased these because they were $5 less than the official ones from Nintendo. I also have the official Nintendo ones but I chose to use these instead because they came in red and blue whereas the official ones were both black and I have gray Joy Cons. Comparing the two sets, the official ones look like it was better made and I was a bit concerned. However, I used these during races and they were great! They L/R buttons worked perfectly--something I was concerned about when I first look at them. Now I use these exclusively due to the colors. When I get other color joy cons, I will take out my Nintendo ones to use.

    Works well, just pricey for what it is.

    The controllers fit perfectly and they perform as expected - just giving you a more comfortable/familiar grip on things when playing multiplayer racing games on a single switch console. Would have given it five stars if it weren't for the price. It's just pretty expensive for what are basically two plastic doughnuts. Their dock is ridiculously priced, the replacement controllers, ac adapters, gaming controller - everything that's sold as an accessory from nintendo for the switch is just overpriced for what you get. Bottom line. I'd actually buy more of them if the price was more reasonable just to duplicate our setup on multiple tvs in different rooms - if it just didn't cost so much.

    Does what it’s supposed to

    I don’t know how these compare to the official ones, but these are good quality steering wheels, at first you think you might use this as a stinger and we’l I don’t know how these compare to the official ones, but these are good quality steering wheels, he’s are more useful as reps and they are actual steering wheels, because Mario kart is more responsive if you play with the analog stick instead of turning these to turn in the game, with that being said there’s two trigger button behind the wheels that you can’t seeing these pictures,

    Fun accessory

    I really enjoy using these when playing mario kart. I am glad I bought this cheaper option since its just a tiny piece of plastic much smaller than the Wii wheel. The joy con is also much smaller so I guess it makes sense and it feels good in my hands. The box for this wheel set was the same size as the box for the authentic Nintendo ones so I believe they are the same size. I haven't tried the authentic Nintendo wheels but my advice would be to get a set of wheels but make sure they are on sale and as cheap as possible.

    I wasn't going to buy joy con wheels but they were the right price. I brought them home and played about 50 hours of game play with each wheel before the buttons on the bottom of the wheel became inoperable; making the game play impossible to play while the joy con was inserted in the wheel. I am still giving these three stars because I might have been too rough on the buttons. I am sure they would last longer if played with kid gloves on. I would buy them again if I thought they really improved my game play, but they are more of a novelty than necessity.

    Feels like a whole new way to play Mario Kart

    I'll start by saying the Joy-Cons fit very well in these steering wheels. That being said, using these with the controller buttons just doesn't feel right. We ended up using them with the auto acceleration to rely on buttons as little as possible. They are fun for a new challenge playing with friends, but neither me or my 4 year old prefer them over just the Joy-Cons so they stay in a drawer most of the time. I'd recommend them only if you have gotten bored of Mario Kart and are interested in a new way to play it.

    I initially bought these thinking I would use them for motion steering in Mario kart. I quickly decided not to use them for that lol, not because of the wheel design but because it’s too finicky to use motion controls on Mario kart. ANYWAY, these are great for adding grip to the tiny joycons when playing any game. The bigger shoulder buttons are very nice and comfy. My friends all liked using these versus the small shoulder button attachment.

    Way better then OEM Nintendo wheel (SAVE $5!!!)

    These are 10X better then the original Nintendo Joy-con wheel, plus you'll save $5!!!! The neon colors (Blue/Red) matches perfectly with the joy-cons, including it feels like an OEM Nintendo product as-well. You won't regret buying these :). I truly love this product, and also it would be highly recommended for those who purchased the Grey joy-con bundle, which helps differentiate the two (+,-) Joy-cons. Overall rating 9.5/10

    Good, But Hard To Reach Buttons

    These racing wheels are just as good as the ones from Nintendo. They feel comfortable in the hand and the top button extensions are as responsive as can be. However, for kids and adults with smaller hands, it is difficult to reach the buttons or the stick if they're close to the center of the wheel. Other than that, they're a great addition for playing Mario Kart or even to use as a grip when holding a Joy-Con horizontally.

    Worthy competitor to the OEM version

    I bought this two-pack of steering wheel controllers for my joy-cons with the hope that it would help my kids get into the spirit of Mario Kart a bit more. They definitely had the desired effect! These peripherals are just about on par with their counterparts from Nintendo. I only give them 4 stars because the fit between the wheel and the controller itself is a bit too snug at times, making them hard to separate from one another. Otherwise, a solid product.

    A little Small but here's why

    So they work great. They're designed to be used with either the left or right joyconn. The size of the wheels are much smaller than say the ones that were used for the Wii. Does seem a little odd when play mario karts, but to be fair the joyconns themselves are small and it would be hard to press the buttons with a large wheel. I imagine its perfect size for children and young teens, but as a large man with an inner charger, it's not the best solution but still fun nonetheless

    I thought these would be fun, especially for my children and wow, they loved them! They have a blast playing Mario Kart and actually winning lol. They’ll get the hang of the “traditional way” of playing Mario Kart later on once they’ve played enough but for now, they can get 1st place finally. Plus, their confidence went up sooo much after winning so many times. These are great and loads of fun! Highly recommended for children.

    Switch controller wheels small but work well!

    I was shocked at how small the steering wheels are... but it makes sense because the Switch system is all about portability and on the go fun! The wheels are lightweight plastic, but seem up for the job. They do make playing Mario Kart much more intuitive. I bought two sets for our 4 controllers and would do it again...

    A cheaper alternative to the Nintendo version

    The wheels were bought for my boys 5 years old then. They quickly grasped the idea and were able to use without much effort. I do have the Nintendo version as well. Compared to the Nintendo version, these feel like they are made from inferior material but the price does justify the material. Overall really good product if you prefer to have a wheel for racing games

    The wheels are smaller than the Wii U wheels due to the controllers being a lot smaller but are still comfortable to use and hold. Since this brand is not from Nintendo I am very impressed how it matches the red and blue color controllers exactly. The price was excellent and was half the price of the Nintendo brand wheels. The wheels work great with the system and would recommend to all.

    First off, the price on these are great. They're fun and quaint and, realistically, look nicer than they officially licensed nintendo options. They do all the same things but they'll cost you less. This is the second pair I've own and I've gifted these as well. Couldn't be happier.

    Don't be afraid to buy these because they're not the "Nintendo-brand" originals. They work just as well and look twice as cool. There's something about having neon-colored steering wheels in your hand that makes Mario Kart 8 and similar racing games that much more fun. We have experienced any issues with functionality and have been using them consistently for about 2 to 3 months now. 5/5.

    The Joy-Con Wheel was a well purchased item. It's great for anyone, including myself, with big hands since the remote control are so hard to control while playing Mario Kart. It has a few hiccups such as popping out while playing, and sometimes the LT/RT button doesn't work as well. However, just push it back in and continue on. Worth the price.
