As we mentioned earlier in the review, Roccat supplied us with a sample of their Taito gaming surface to test with the Savu today.
Roccat supply the Taito is supplied rolled up inside a substantial clear plastic packet. The front of the packet features little samples of the texture of the surface so you can see what it’s like before you purchase.
There are three different sizes of the Taito which are all available in two different thicknesses, 3 and 5 mm. We have the mid-size 5 mm Taito to test which measures 400 x 320mm. The small version measures 265 x 210 mm and the large version measures 455 x 370 mm.
The heat treated cloth surface of the mate has an extremely fine weave which helps the mouse glide around effortlessly. Underneath this, Roccat has attached a thick sheet of rubber which prevents it from slipping around the desk. The different thicknesses available are suited to different levels of pressure applied. The thicker version that we have to test is spongier than the thinner version and therefore has more give.
