SteelSeries Unveils the Ergonomic Multi-Genre Gaming Mouse Rival 5

Exceeds the Changing Needs of Gamers, No Matter What They Play

Steelseries is the worldwide leader in gaming and esports peripherals and they just released a game-changing piece of new tech: the Rival 5 gaming mouse. We’ve covered their gear before, from controllers to headsets to the Rival 600 gaming mouse, so we’re more than happy to put a spotlight on this newcomer. Engineered for both performance and style, the Rival 5 is designed to function as the only mouse a gamer who plays multiple games across different genres will need. It’s made for MOBAs, Battle Royales, FPSes, MMOs, and all other fast-paced games, and with a universal ergonomic shape, it’ll be an incredibly comfortable fit for any hand. The Rival 5 draws on SteelSeries’ history of innovative mouse design to ensure that it’ll work with any grip style and provide easy access to the side buttons, allowing you to make lighting-fast decisions in the middle of a game. In short, it’ll fit like a glove.

The Rival 5 weighs just 85g, 30% lighter than the competition, features a Super Mesh Cable to allow for rapid movement, and delivers custom true 1-to-1 tracking thanks to its TrueMove Air Sensor. Its next-gen Golden Micro IP54 Switches are rated for 80M clicks, which is about three times the durability found in other gaming mice, and resist dust and water to make sure your clicks are perfect.

This mouse will follow you when you switch from Fortnite to Hitman 3 to Apex Legends, bringing with it 9 programmable, fully customizable buttons ready to be hooked up to your most important hotkeys. There’s also a 5-button quick action side panel layout, which includes a toggle switch to make your in-game actions that little bit faster and more efficient. Plus, the Rival 5 can change its color scheme with Brilliant PrismSync Lighting, which provides 10 zones of 16.8 million beautifully crisp colors, bringing RGB to the next level. The color can be synced up with other SteelSeries products or even react to specific in-game cues. Why pick between form and function when you can have both?
