    ROCCAT today announces the availability of its cutting-edge gaming mousepad: the Siru. The unique, knife-edge thin gaming surface is less than a single millimeter deep, making it one of the thinnest mousepads ever created. Top side a battle-ready, easy-to-clean surface with high glide and control, bottom side an easily reusable non-slip backing that anchors to your desktop - the Siru is comprised of just one ultra-thin layer. The innovative form factor of the mousepad provides direct desktop feedback, allowing for exceptionally precise tracking and lightning-fast aim corrections.

    Available in two stylish colors - Cryptic Blue and Pitch Black - the Siru works well with both laser and optical mice.

    KNIFE-EDGE THIN FOR THE MOST DIRECT FEEDBACK
    At 340 x 250 x 0.45mm, the Siru is truly knife-edge thin. The benefit of having such a blade-like gaming surface is that your mouse is on exactly the same level as your desktop, and you're provided with direct desktop feedback. This means exceptionally true and precise tracking, and the ability to make rapid, accurate cursor corrections.

    OPTIMIZED GAMING SURFACE FOR GLIDE AND CONTROL
    The specially developed Siru surface is built for speed. It lets your mouse glide over it unopposed, so you can accurately track your enemy with ease. In spite of the Siru's superior glide, the innovative surface has precise control, preventing under- and over-aim. Available in Cryptic Blue and Pitch Black, the surface is as stylish as it is deadly, and has been field-tested with over 80 laser and optical mice.

    SOLID GRIP AND HOLD WITH REUSABLE NON-SLIP BACKING
    Despite being comprised of just one ultra-thin layer, the Siru makes no sacrifices. Using only the best materials, the bottom side of the mousepad features an easily reusable, non-slip backing that anchors to your desktop. The benefit: a reliable, immovable surface that won't drift when you go to war.

    Interesting. Might pick this one up to replace my Roccat Sota. Too bad there's no word on pricing

    I own the Sota and the Alumic, and see no reason to buy into this :D

    One isn't enough? :p

    I wanted to replace the Sota actually since it's bent. I tried the whole iron thing but it'll just happen again after a couple days. I'm assuming this one won't have that problem.

    Ah yes, my sota does have a bit of concavity in it, but that's why I use it for work with my Tt esports mouse. The Alumic is awesome, being solid metal, it doesnt bend and is silky smooth, and gets to be ridden by a Roccat Kone XTD all day long.

    That one seems a bit out of my price point. Unless it's extremely durable, I won't spend too much for a mousepad. However, since my Sota does remind me of an important point in buying a mousepad, durability, maybe I'll spend a little bit more this time and get something that could last longer.

    Local price will determine which route I'll go though.
