Leading gaming accessory maker Turtle Beach Corporation (Nasdaq: HEAR) today announced the newest addition to the brand’s growing lineup of gaming simulation accessories, the VelocityOne Rudder, is now available at participating retailers globally. VelocityOne Rudder further elevates flight simmers’ setups to new levels of realism.

The pedals have a smooth rudder axis and contactless hall-effect sensors on all axes for fluid movements and a longer product life.

Plus, multiple stable mounting solutions keep VelocityOne Rudder firmly planted on a variety of surfaces. Turtle Beach’s VelocityOne Rudder is available today at www.turtlebeach.com and participating retailers for $299.99 MSRP.
