ASUS Announces ROG Scabbard and ROG Strix Edge Mouse Pads
Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced two new gaming mouse pads: the extra-large, splash-proof ROG Scabbard and the vertically-oriented ROG Strix Edge. Both mouse pads are a result of the ROG commitment to deliver only the best gaming experience, and each has special features that are sure to meet the demands of even the most hardcore gamers.
ROG Scabbard: Superior durability and splash resistance
ROG Scabbard is a classic large-surface mouse pad, at least when it comes to the format. The mouse pad measures 900 by 400mm and its 2mm thick. The size isn’t what’s special about this pad, it’s the material. The pad is specifically designed to offer splash resistance as well as superior durability.
ASUS used the exceptionally tough Cordura Lite fabric for the Scabbard. The material is the choice of top military and outdoor gear manufacturers, and now also ASUS. With it, you don’t need to worry about drink spills or similar accidents. It makes it extra easy to clean and also adds scratch resistance. With the large size, you also protect your desk itself against spills and scuffs.
Scabbard ensures precise cursor movement for both laser and optical mice. The added 2mm thickness also provides a slightly cushioned surface for added comfort during those long gaming sessions.
The design is rounded off with glow-in-the-dark lettering. A non-slip ‘ROG red’ rubber base grips firmly onto any surface, making sure it stays where you place it.
ROG Strix Edge: Vertical, flexible, versatile
The ROG Strix Edge is also a large-format mouse pad, but it is designed for vertical use. The specially engineered horizontal-weave surface provides optimal friction for smooth mouse gliding and control. Just like the Scabbard, the Strix Edge ensures precise movement with both laser and optical mice.
Measuring 400 x 450mm, Strix Edge provides ample space for mouse movement. It is also 2mm thick for the extra padding and comfort of hands and wrists. A non-slip rubber base will firmly grip onto any surface.
Strix Edge was designed with the latest full-colour, anti-fray stitching technology to protect the pad from fraying and give any gaming setup an edgy look. It is also light, thin, and portable; a perfect pad for everything from home use to LAN parties.
