ROCCAT™ Sota – Granular Black Gaming Mousepad
Pointer positioning – at the highest level
Any mouse will glide over the ROCCAT™ Sota Granular Gaming Mousepad with apparent effortless ease and as if fitted with a tracking booster. The granular surface combined with the integrated metal film offers unparalleled gliding characteristics. At the same time, the Sota occupies a smaller footprint on the desktop compared to standard mousepads, without restricting the gliding area in the slightest.
The Sota was given a granular surface inspired by the geophysical characteristics of granular matter. This gives the pad unique gliding properties which make it seem as if the mouse is almost moving by itself. Accordingly, pointer positioning is improved and aiming is optimized to such an extent that every gamer will benefit. The
wrist cut-out on the lower side of the mousepad and its compact dimensions mean
the gliding area is extremely comfortable – perfect for high-sense-gamers in particular.
The Sota mousepad is one of the first mousepads to combine a hard granular plastic surface with an ultra-soft, flexible base. Despite that it achieves a thickness of just 3mm. It lies completely flat on the desktop and thanks to the non-slip base remains rooted to it – it also provides an additional layer of padding for comfort. The surface itself is extremely easy to clean so anything causing friction can beremoved in a flash meaning the mouse is never slowed down.
INTEGRATED METAL FOIL
Integrated between the hard and soft layers of the mousepad is a thin metal film. On the one hand this gives the mousepad a discreet metallic shimmer which sets this pad apart from the others in terms of looks as well. On the other hand, this film
improves the tracking characteristics of the Sota – the metal film reflects the light back to optical or laser sensors without distorting it in any way thereby providing outstanding tracking and amazingly precise aiming.

"A solid performance from this mat, way better than I had expected as I'm not usually a fan of the hard topped surfaces.[...] I even tried peeling apart the layers in one corner to get a feel for how durable it would be and they are stuck together really well. The Roccat has impressed me so much that this has now replaced my existing mat and will be my normal day to day pad of choice."

Measuring in at 250x270mm, the Roccat Sota isn’t just something for high-sense gamers; it’s also great for normal PC users. The generous size, build quality and cool looks make the Roccat Sota a really interesting mouse companion."
"the Sota uses a very hard, granular surface offering very low gliding resistance – so low in fact that I managed to blow the Pyra right off the mat."
