Mad Catz® Strikes Again At CES 2019, Announcing All-New Range of S.T.R.I.K.E. Gaming Keyboards

Two New Professional Gaming Keyboards Deliver Power and Customization for PC Gamers

Mad Catz Global Limited, leading gaming hardware innovators for nearly 30 years, today announced an all-new line of S.T.R.I.K.E. professional gaming keyboards, including a S.T.R.I.K.E. with ultra-reliable mechanical keys, ideal for the Esports community.

Expected to begin shipping from Spring 2019, the S.T.R.I.K.E. range is a perfect addition to the Company’s recently announced range of G.L.I.D.E. gaming surfaces and R.A.T. mice., forming part of a complete PC eco-system. With two S.T.R.I.K.E. keyboards to choose from, gamers can pick the keyboard that suits their preference and budget.

Armed with Cherry mechanical switches, the S.T.R.I.K.E.4+ is the gamers’ new secret weapon. Tested to withstand at least 50 million hits, the Cherry switches provide perfect travel and precision every time. With anti-ghosting featuring on every key, gamers can combine with the powerful F.L.U.X. software, which allows for staggering customization and control over every aspect of the keyboard including individual key lighting and control over the USB report rate. Chameleon RGB Lighting baths the keyboard in 16.8 million colors, fully adjustable and customizable via the F.L.U.X. software and creating a new standard in keyboard lighting.

Elegantly simple, yet built to withstand the rigors of professional gaming, the S.T.R.I.K.E.2+ is precision-engineered to provide impressive durability. With a toughened aluminum faceplate designed to withstand the most heated of gaming sessions, the S.T.R.I.K.E.2+ is created with a double-shot injection process, fusing the chassis together and creating a seamless and extremely durable keyboard, battle-ready and always maintaining a clean and minimalist appearance. 

The S.T.R.I.K.E.2+ features a custom designed membrane, mimicking the reliability and precision of a mechanical keyboard, but without the associated noise. A 26 key anti-ghosting matrix gives gamers the power they crave, and the advanced Chameleon RGB Lighting can be programmed to adjust speed and brightness.

“Earlier this week we were pleased to announce the shipping of our G.L.I.D.E. Gaming Surfaces, the perfect partner to out new range of R.A.T. mice. We’re delighted to grow our range of professional PC hardware yet further, with the new range of S.T.R.I.K.E. gaming keyboards,” said Selena Chang, Director of Sales and Operations for Mad Catz Global Limited, “We remain seriously committed to the PC gaming community, aiming to deliver an entire eco-system of high quality hardware, designed to use the latest technology and engineering prowess to provide a winning edge. We look forward to shipping these products soon and to announcing further product in the year to come.”
