Aesthetics wise, at the top left corner you can see the laser-cut ROG logo. Taking a closer look, you can see the Mayan inspired patterns on the fabric. On the bottom, it’s the silicon base itself with the “The Choice of Champions” branded on the top center.

We tried it for both daily and gaming usage with the Gladius Gaming Mouse. There is barely any difference compared to a generic cloth mouse pad. Gliding experience was great and there are no noticeable issues in regards to the Mayan patterns for the surface. The great thing about this mouse pad is that, it doesn’t absorb moisture and sweat thanks to the silicon base. So, there won’t be any odours left behind. Plus, it’s easy to clean the fabric surface whenever needed.
