    Pro gamers are often faced with the awkward choice between a mousepad the offers speed, and that which offers control, which makes them carry both kinds of them to tournaments, and swap based on the usage. Roccat attempted to solve this with the Alumic. This double-sided mousepad offers a surface that's optimized for speed, and the other side that's all about control. So, switching between a sniper and a grunt in a match would just need you to flip the mousepad to suit the role.

    The two surfaces sandwich an anodized aluminum core that maintains its shape and flatness. On both sides, the corners are decked up by rubber feet that prevent slipping. A gel-based attachable wrist-rest is also bundled. The Alumic mousepad measures around 331 x 272 mm, with 3 mm thickness. Slated for market release by the end of this month, the Roccat Alumic double-sided mousepad will be priced at €39.99.

    I like the blue one :eek: but I already got a Razer Destructor mat that serves me very well and im not un a hurry to get a new one. If that mouse mat had ble LEDs in it however. maybe i would have gone with it just for the bling factor

    There are no two color-schemes. The blue one is Alumic with its "speed" surface, the black one is the same Alumic with its "control" surface.
