As the second mouse from Roccat’s updated Kone series to hit our labs, the Kone Pure looks to offer the same excellent gaming performance as its sibling – the Kone XTD – while reducing the physical dimensions and retail price. Does the Kone Pure have what it takes to impress as much as the ‘Must Have’ Kone XTD did?
Packing an 8200 DPI Pro-Aim laser R3 sensor and a 32-bit Turbo Core V2 72MHz processor into a form factor that is 91% the size of the Kone[+], Roccat’s Kone Pure targets gamers that lust for a mouse that has the ability to offer outstanding performance while maintaining a sleek, user-friendly style.
Accompanying the Kone Pure during testing will be Roccat’s Hiro gaming mouse pad. The surface’s large 350 x 250 x 2.5mm size and vulcanised silicone surface give gamers a good degree of free movement that is required when contesting at the highest levels.
Is the Kone Pure a worthy addition to Roccat’s flagship series? And is the Hiro gaming surface its perfect partner?
