SteelSeries Reveals Snazzy New Ultra-Lightweight Gaming Mice

Aerox Ya Socks

The gaming peripheral wizards over at SteelSeries have just announced a brand new line of ultra-lightweight gaming mice, dubbed the Aerox 3 and Aerox 3 Wireless.

The new mice take cues from a few other recent players in the market with their slightly Trypophobia-inducing honeycomb designs that reduce mouse weight by carving out as much excess materials as humanly possible. Where these mice differ from similar, existing products is in their inherent technology, which is significantly more high-end and fitting of SteelSeries’ pedigree.

Check them out below:

Aerox 3 Wireless

The big boy of the new Aerox line, the Aerox 3 Wireless is a (you guessed it) wireless gaming mouse with six buttons, using the same TrueMove Air Optical Sensor as the Rival 3 Wireless, co-designed with PixArt and coming in at 18,000 CPI.  The Aerox 3 Wireless weighs a teeny 66g, significantly lighter than the Rival 3 Wireless, is IP54 water and dust resistant and has up to a 200 hour battery life with USB-C fast charging.

The Aerox 3 Wireless will retail for A$189 when it releases this November 4.

Aerox 3

The Aerox 3 is a wired gaming mouse with six buttons, packing the TrueMove Core 8500 CPI sensor and comes in at a ridiculous 57g weight. It’s also IP54 water and dust resistant with the same RGB lighting and Dual-Spring SteelSeries switches rated at 80m clicks as the Aerox 3 Wireless.

The Aerox 3 will retail for A$119 when it releases this November 4.
