Glorious PC Gaming Race has made a significant impression on mouse and keyboard enthusiasts over the last year. The ball got rolling with the Model O, a sensibly priced take on ambidextrous RGB gaming mice with a sleek design, reduced weight and a custom cable to retain flexibility while reducing common issues like cable drag. Now as we get close to wrapping up the year, it looks like the Glorious Model D mouse is close to launch, bringing an ergonomic frame option to the lineup.
As with the Model O and Model O-, the Model D will use a honeycomb shell to reduce weight, bringing the mouse to under 69g, with matte or glossy options available depending on preference.
While this is a ergonomic mouse with more room for your thumb to rest on the side of the mouse, the Model D will still be minimalist in terms of buttons, sticking with two additional buttons on the side for custom controls. Of course, when you are trying to make a range of the world's lightest gaming mice, a minimalist approach is essential as every component matters and needs to be thoughtfully considered alongside other features.
The Glorious PC Gaming Race Model D will be launching in December 2019, hitting the same $49.99 price tag as the Model O. We should get confirmation on the sensor, button switches and other specs closer to the time as the design gets finalised and put into production.
The Model D is the second of four planned mice, so there are still two more on the way that will focus on other body types. Ambidextrous and Ergonomic are now done, so the next two have potential to be particularly niche and interesting.

KitGuru Says: The Model D looks very tempting as I've always had a slight preference for ergonomic over ambidextrous. Looking ahead though, I am particularly looking forward to seeing the next two mice. If we're getting one new model per grip type, then the two most popular options are now sorted. Perhaps we'll see a slim but slightly longer mouse next year for fingertip grip users.
