After selling more than 10 million mousepads, SteelSeries provides the most options in gaming surfaces.

CHICAGO – October 30, 2018SteelSeries, the global leader in gaming peripherals, today announced the expansion of the iconic QcK mousepad family, making the line the widest variety available in the gaming industry. The line includes the new QcK Edge, QcK Prism Cloth, QcK Hard and updates to SteelSeries’ legacy mouspads. These new additions come after the celebration of SteelSeries’ 10 millionth mousepad sold, selling more mousepads than any other gaming company.

QcK Prism

The new QcK Prism has a cloth surface and features dynamic two-zone RGB lighting, powered by SteelSeries Engine for personalized RGB lighting and comes in an extra large desktop size. With SteelSeries Engine and through the PrismSync app, users can easily customize multi-color lighting effects between all of their SteelSeries Prism-enabled gear. From one-click lighting effects to complex light shows, PrismSync gives gamers the power to perfectly personalize the style of their setup. The RGB lighting can also be integrated with Discord to display custom lighting effects for chat notifications for new messages, mute status and more.

Unlike all other RGB-lit mousepads, SteelSeries has intelligently positioned the cable out of the way on the left side, where gamers’ mouse cables won’t get caught on it during gameplay.

The QcK Prism Cloth is available in both a Medium (320mm x 270mm x 4mm) and XL (900mm x 300mm x 4mm) variant. The QcK Prism Cloth is available for $39.99 and $59.99 respectively.

QcK Edge

The QcK Edge uses the same cloth surface as the legendary QcK mousepads, but now uses a stitched edge to ensure it will never fray or peel. The line features the iconic minimalism SteelSeries mousepads design. The QcK Edge has been tested by the top mouse sensor manufacturer and its high thread count and smooth surface optimizes mouse tracking accuracy for both optical and laser sensors. The underside of the mousepad is a durable, non-slip rubber base designed to prevent movement and be a solid platform for competitive gaming.

The QcK Edge comes in three sizes: Medium (320mm x 270mm x 2mm), Large (450mm x 400mm x 2mm) and XL (900mm x 300mm x 2mm). The QcK Edge is available at SteelSeries.com for $11.99, $14.99 and $23.99 respectively.

The mousepad measures 320mm x 270mm x 3mm. The QcK Hard is available for $29.99.

QcK Mousepads
In addition to the new QcK Edge, Prism Cloth and Hard mousepads, SteelSeries is also refreshing its original line of mousepads.
