Mad Catz Inc Announce G.L.I.D.E Mouse Mats

Mad Catz have announced a new range of G.L.I.D.E. Professional Gaming Surfaces, which promise twice the responsiveness of other mouse mats or gaming surfaces currently available.

The new range boasts four different surfaces, and will come in a variety of sizes and materials optimised for both optical and laser sensors.

The mats that have caught our notice are the G.L.I.D.E. 7, with its low-friction silicone surface, as well as the G.L.I.D.E. 9, which is manufactured from anodized aluminium. Both surfaces are ideal for laser sensors.

The G.L.I.D.E. mats are also sized larger than standard mouse mats, with the G.L.I.D.E. 3 being 38% larger, the G.L.I.D.E. 9 and G.L.I.D.E. 7 140% and 150% larger, and the G.L.I.D.E. 5 ringing in at a whopping 317% size difference.

“We believe the new G.L.I.D.E. range will prove to be the ideal companion for our R.A.T. gaming mice,” said Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. “The announcement of the G.L.I.D.E. range continues our strategy of growing our portfolio of premium gaming products which resonate with the passionate gamer.”

We will update the mats’ pricing and availability once we get word from the local distributor in Singapore.
