PRESS RELEASE

Durable, splash-resistant ROG Scabbard and versatile, vertically-oriented ROG Strix Edge mouse pads meet the needs of even the more hardcore gamers

KEY POINTS

  • ROG Scabbard is a splash-resistant extended gaming mouse pad with superior durability, giving users the most solid battleground for gaming
  • ROG Strix Edge is a large, vertical gaming mouse pad designed for versatility in any gaming scenario

TAIPEI, Taiwan, August 31, 2017 — ASUSRepublic 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 an extended gaming mouse pad specially designed to offer splash resistance and superior durability. Crafted from exceptionally tough Cordura® Lite fabric — the material of choice of top military and outdoor gear manufacturers — Scabbard is capable of withstanding accidental drink spills that might happen in the heat of battle. It's also stain and scuff-resistant, and provides a consistent and responsive tracking surface that's easy to clean and maintain. Together with a textile-weave that offers optimal friction for mouse gliding and control, Scabbard ensures precise cursor movement for both laser and optical mice.

Measuring 900 x 400mm, Scabbard provides gamers with a large surface for mouse movement and offers plenty of extra space for all gaming gear and accessories. The extended size also ensures the desk is protected against drink spills and scuffs. And at 2mm thick, the slightly cushioned surface brings an added level of gaming comfort.

Made with the demands of gamers in mind, Scabbard goes beyond durability and reliability with a clean design with glow-in-the-dark lettering that matches any gaming setup and adds a touch of ROG pride to the atmosphere. And with anti-fray stitched edges and a non-slip 'ROG red' rubber base that grips firmly onto any surface, Scabbard is a long-lasting choice and every gamer’s best ally. 

ROG Strix Edge: Vertical, flexible, versatile

Designed for vertical use, the versatile ROG Strix Edge is a large gaming mouse pad that offers gamers a competitive edge regardless of the gaming scenario. The specially engineered horizontal-weave surface provides optimal friction for smooth mouse gliding and control, and ensures precise movement with both laser and optical mice.

Measuring 400 x 450mm, Strix Edge provides ample space for mouse movement, and its 2mm thickness creates a slight padding for extra ergonomic comfort of hands and wrists.

Strix Edge was designed with the latest full-color, anti-fray stitching technology to protect the pad from fraying and give any gaming setup an edgy look. But beyond its carefully considered design, Strix Edge was created for gamers who prize versatility on the go. Light, thin, portable and with a non-slip rubber base that firmly grips onto any surface, it's the perfect gaming battleground whether for home use, at LAN parties, or anywhere else.
