Razer gives their Goliathus mouse mat the LED treatment

Taking the “Why not?” mantra to heart, Razer has just revealed the Razer Goliathus Chroma: a soft gaming mouse mat outfitted with multi-color LEDs. Together with its larger sibling, the Razer Goliathus Chroma Extended, both mouse mats offer preset and custom lighting effects, and will be available worldwide in Q2 2018.

This isn’t Razer’s first Chroma-enabled mat — that honor belongs to the Razer Firefly, a hard mat that released all the way back in 2015. Other than the softer mat properties, described as a micro-textured cloth optimized for “all sensitivity settings, sensors and playstyles,” the Goliathus also features a built-in cable catch by the top-left corner. Like any good gaming mat, it also has a non-slip rubber base.

All Chroma products may be synced through the Razer Synapse 3 application, though all those glowing lights aren’t going to magically improve your gaming ability.

The Goliathus Chroma measures 255 x 355 x 3mm and is priced at US$39.99 (approximately $53). The wider Goliathus Chroma Extended comes in at 294 x 920 x 3mm with a US$59.99 (S$79) price tag.

Update (28 March): The Razer Goliathus Chroma is now available in Singapore for S$59.90.
