With a 3D Pattern Surface and Incredible Durability, the DeX Mousepad Offers an All New
COLOGNE (GamesCom), Aug. 13, 2014 – SteelSeries the leading global manufacturer of gaming peripherals today introduced a new surface for gamers called the DeX Mousepad. Made of a low-friction polymer material, its surface features a unique 3D optical pattern that is designed to provide a superior level of tracking accuracy for all applications. The SteelSeries DeX offers a highly-responsive, fast glide for mouse movements while its heavy silicone base keeps the pad anchored in place. The DeX is the most durable mousepad on the
market with its heat-sealed edges that will keep it from fraying over time.

“We designed this for gamers who prefer to have a low friction surface that want and prefer a fast glide; it’s a very different feel from our QcK family of surfaces,” said Tino Soelberg, SteelSeries CTO. “In addition to how it feels and glides, the DeX could very well be the last surface they will ever need to buy with its incredible durability.”

The SteelSeries DeX will be available for pre-order this Fall at $39.99 / €39.99 MSRP. For more details and images of the SteelSeries DeX visit To be a part of the conversation about this product and all things SteelSeries related, join us on social media at and
