The mouse pad measures 900x420x4mm (LxWxD) with a large surface area. When you unroll it, ensure it’s flat on the surface for smooth mouse tracking during use. The mouse pad features a red XPG logo on the top right, a black controller housing with a button for changing RGB lighting modes, a USB Micro-B interface, a 1.8m detachable black cable with gold connectors, and anti-slip rubber on the backside for stability during use.

CORDURA, developed by E.I. du Pont in 1929, is a durable fabric. The mouse pad’s use of CORDURA provides a splash-proof and scratch-resistant surface, making it durable with a 4mm thickness.

The RGB lighting runs along the entire border, and a two-zone RGB lighting option is activated by double-pressing the controller button. The product is made in Taiwan.
