  • Razer Atlas

    The Razer Atlas is a tempered glass mousepad. Yes, tempered glass.

    Although it sounds gimmicky, the Razer Atlas actually offers a smooth and durable surface for your gaming needs. It features a micro-etched surface that prevents dirt and scratches and ensures the optical sensors at the bottom of your mouse function accurately. Further, an anti-slip base keeps the mousepad in place.

    In our experience using the mousepad, the etched surface allows for supreme tracking in games where keeping your crosshair at a moving enemy is vital. We never really had a problem with regular mousepads when it came to tracking, but now that we've experienced how effortlessly the mouse glides around the Razer Atlas, it is impossible for us to go back to a regular fabric mousepad.

    Maintenance for the Razer Atlas is essentially non-existent. Unlike a traditional fabric mousepad, the Atlas doesn’t get dirty or grimy over time. You’ll likely only need to wipe it off with a damp cloth once a month to keep the mousepad in optimum condition.
