Roccat introduced Sota, a new granular gaming mousepad that will be available this month for around 22.99EUR. The Roccat Sota combines a hard granular plastic surface with a flexible base. The mousepad measures 350mm x 270mm and is just 3mm thick, it will be available in black and blue.
The Sota was given a granular surface inspired by the geophysical characteristics of granular matter. This gives the pad unique gliding properties which make it seem as if the mouse is almost moving by itself. Accordingly, pointer positioning is improved and aiming is optimized to such an extent that every gamer will benefit. The
wrist cut-out on the lower side of the mousepad and its compact dimensions mean
the gliding area is extremely comfortable – perfect for high-sense-gamers in particular.
The Sota mousepad is one of the first mousepads to combine a hard granular plastic surface with an ultra-soft, flexible base. Despite that it achieves a thickness of just 3mm. It lies completely flat on the desktop and thanks to the non-slip base remains rooted to it – it also provides an additional layer of padding for comfort. The surface itself is extremely easy to clean so anything causing friction can be removed in a flash meaning the mouse is never slowed down.
INTEGRATED METAL FOIL
Integrated between the hard and soft layers of the mousepad is a thin metal film. On the one hand this gives the mousepad a discreet metallic shimmer which sets this pad apart from the others in terms of looks as well. On the other hand, this film
improves the tracking characteristics of the Sota – the metal film reflects the light back to optical or laser sensors without distorting it in any way thereby providing outstanding tracking and amazingly precise aiming.
