Mad Catz Announces New S.T.R.I.K.E. Gaming Keyboards | CES 2019

Mad Catz is making a huge comeback and CES 2019 has been a great launchpad for the resurrected company. The company announced a new wave of S.T.R.I.K.E. professional gaming keyboards which will be a welcome addition alongside the company's recently announced range of G.L.I.D.E. gaming surfaces and R.A.T. gaming mice. The new keyboards are expected to hit stores in 2019. Here is some information about each keyboard:


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.

RGB enabled gaming keyboards are becoming the norm and with so many companies vying for gamers attention it is good to see a name like Mad Catz back in the mix.
