Razer is a company many gamers look to for all their peripherals, from mice and keyboards to mouse pads and even headsets. Recently, Razer introduced four new mouse pads to give gamers that little something extra, with three being of the hard variety and the last a hybrid pad. The new Invicta, ManticorDestructor 2, and Megasoma 2 have been engineered with "an all-new surface coating" that is specially suited for different game types.

Razer's Invicta is a dual-sided pad that has a Speed coating on one and a Control coating on the other, the Manticor is single-sided with a Speed coating, and the Destructor 2 is single-sided with a Control coating. The Speed coating is a sensor-reflective one, meaning the mouse sensor has more light reflected back to it for quicker movements. The Control coating has small "crystalline specks" just below the top layer to "increase surface reflectivity" to the mouse sensors, ensuring your mouse is as precise as possible. Razer's Megasoma 2 is a new hybrid mouse pad that has the precision of a hard pad with the comfort of a soft one. It's surface is made of silicone for the perfect balance of control and support without compromising on either.

All three mouse pads are available to pre-order now from the Razer Store, with the Invicta priced at $59.99, the Manticor at $49.99, and the Destructor 2 and Megasoma 2 at $39.99 each. Razer expects the first three mouse pads to ship in the next two to four weeks, while the Megasoma 2 is expected later this year.
