The Stratus Duo mirrors the familiar size and layout of console controllers but sports an upgraded design from the Stratus XL with a new trigger design featuring Magnetic Hall Effect sensors that keeps triggers consistent and precise. The controller also includes high performance clickable analog joysticks that feature minimal dead zones and smooth operation. The controller is powered by a lithium ion battery for 20+ hours of play time and includes a Micro USB cable that is 1.8 meters/5.9 feet in length.

The Stratus Duo is now available for $59.99/€69.99/$69.99.

Nimbus
The Nimbus, the world's best-selling game controller for Apple TV , iOS, and Mac, is a full-sized wireless controller perfect for playing Fortnite on iPhone or iPad. The ergonomic shape and familiar button placement of the Nimbus makes it simple for users to jump right into Fortnite or hundreds of other games like Minecraft.

The Nimbus is available for $49.95.

Stratus XL
The Stratus XL is a Bluetooth gaming controller for Android and Windows. It includes 40+ hours of gameplay with two AA batteries, LED notification, clickable joysticks and complete customization of gamer's joystick sensitivity and trigger actuation.

The Stratus XL is available for $59.99.
