Unmatched PerformancenThe SteelSeries DeX mousepad is the new standard of excellence in high-performance mousepads. We have a history of building exceptional gaming surfaces, starting out with the Icemat, later the QcK and then the HD series. DeX is the culmination of more than a decade of inspired research, rigorous testing and cutting-edge technology. It delivers unmatched performance making it the ultimate mousepad for competitive gamers. DeX is the last mousepad you will ever need.nnFast & SmoothnThe DeX was designed with a main mission in mind – to create a surface with the lowest possible friction on the market, prioritizing the speed and accuracy of your mouse movements. The speed-optimized 3D surface of the DeX features a tooled pattern that maintains a smooth and consistent glide in every direction, even over the iconic SteelSeries logo. Your mouse movements will feel effortless.nnCutting-Edge TexturenTake a close look at the surface of the DeX – this isn’t your typical mousepad. What you’ll notice is that most of the material actually sits below the surface edge, a special textured pattern of raised hexagonal ridges reduces the contact points between the mouse and the pad. Less contact means less friction. These incredibly small ridges minimize friction while maintaining the precise tracking of a high-end surface.nnPro-gamer DesignednWe create products for all gamers alike. That being said, we find the valuable input and rigorous testing from competitive gamers extremely important when designing peripherals. When DeX met and exceeded their high standards we knew it would be an integral part of your gaming setup. With their input, the comfortable, low friction polymer surface was chosen and tested to be the perfect choice.nnHeat-bonded edgingnThe cloth surface and silicone base of the SteelSeries DeX come together in a perfectly covered edge. The two parts are heat sealed which means the edges won’t wear down or fray further adding to the pad’s overall durabilitynnWashablenIf your SteelSeries Dex starts to get dirty cleaning it is a breeze. The pad is water resistant so you can wipe it down using water without consequence. After it gets wet just dry off the moisture and get back to the gaming.nnHeavy Silicone BasenMousepads shifting around on your desk can be real hassle when the gaming gets frantic. The other part of our mission is to eliminate this problem whenever possible. The Steelseries DeX continues this trend with a heavy silicone base so your mouse is free to move but the pad won’t. The orange silicone has no harsh smell to it and maintains a smooth, yet tacky bottom surface.nnLong-lasting DurabilitynDuring its development DeX was put through all sorts of trials and tribulations. We ran wash, resiliency and abrasion tests to ensure it maintained its incredible feel even after long-term use. Pro gamers were also involved in the durability testing. They have been testing DeX for quite some time, and while they didn’t take a grinder to it, their feedback has been universal – DeX was built to last.
