SteelSeries is no stranger when it comes to gaming peripherals, and their latest foray does not lie so much in high tech hardware but something that often goes unappreciated or unnoticed: the humble mousepad. No matter how sensitive a particular gaming mouse’s sensor is, it’s performance can be helped through the proper mousepad. SteelSeries has just the thing in mind by expanding its iconic QcK mousepad range that comprises of the new QcK Edge, QcK Prism Cloth, and QcK Hard.
The QcK Prism will feature a cloth surface alongside dynamic two-zone RGB lighting, which will be powered by SteelSeries Engine for a personalized RGB lighting experience. You will be able to enjoy the extra large desktop size, and with the SteelSeries Engine via the PrismSync app, you will be able to customize multi-color lighting effects between all of your SteelSeries Prism-enabled gear easily. The cable is cleverly positioned out of the way on the left side, ensuring that your mouse’s cable will not get in the way of performance. Expect the QcK Prism Cloth to retail for $39.99 and $59.99 for medium and XL sizes, respectively.
As for the QcK Edge, this particular model will rely on the similar cloth surface as the rest of the legendary QcK mousepads, although it will now boast of a stitched edge that ensures there is no fraying or peeling. The line sports the iconic minimalism SteelSeries mousepads design, and it has a high thread count and smooth surface that optimizes mouse tracking accuracy regardless of whether you are rocking to optical or laser sensors. On the underside lies a durable, non-slip rubber base, specially designed to prevent movement. Expect the QcK Edge to arrive in medium, large and XL sizes for $11.99, $14.99 and $23.99, respectively.
Last but not least, the QcK Hard offers professional-level speed courtesy of a hard polyethylene surface that has been optimized for both low and high DPI tracking. It also has a multi-layer construction and solid polymer core that further increases durability, ensuring a consistent surface texture for the most dedicated gamer. There is only one size for the QcK Hard, measuring 320mm x 270mm x 3mm with an asking price of $29.99 apiece.
