- The worldwide leader in gaming and esports expands the Aerox family of ultra-lightweight mice to every gaming genre -
CHICAGO – APRIL 12, 2022 – SteelSeries, the worldwide leader in gaming and esports peripherals, today unveiled three new additions to its award-winning family of Aerox mice, creating the fusion of ultra-lightweight design and customizable button options for maximum precision, speed, and comfort to every style of gamer. Similar to the way innovations in aerospace bring advanced technologies and design improvements to new product categories, the ultralight and structural designs first seen in the Aerox 3 expand their reach with the new Aerox 5, Aerox 5 Wireless, and Aerox 9 Wireless mice.
Less weight equates to speed and endurance. Speed and endurance equate to wins. Whatever the game, players want an edge, the ability to play better, and the ability to win. Whether they’re playing competitively online or trying to advance past the last boss of a Souls game for the 17th time, the ultra-lightweight Aerox line of mice gives gamers the ability to move quicker, more precisely, and with less fatigue so they can maintain their level of gameplay no matter how long the gaming session.
Customization is key. From the apps and shortcuts on a mobile phone to a coffee at Starbucks, nearly everything in life is customizable today. The way people play games should be no different.
Now, gamers can customize the programmable buttons on the Aerox 5, Aerox 5 Wireless, and Aerox 9 Wireless and have immediate access to whatever they want, whenever they need it, at their fingertips.
From shortcuts and macros for Fortnite or League of Legends to the synced RGB lighting for a gamer’s battlestation, the new lineup of Aerox mice can be customized to suit any style of play or environment.
