The Roccat Kone Pure is an entry-level version of their successful Kone XTE but the Kone Pure is not to be talked about lightly as it still functions as a highly customisable mouse ideal for eSports thanks to its precision and weight.
In terms of design, the Roccat Kone Pure is a nice looking mouse, we were sent the white version in this review and was surprised by how nice it looked combined with the black bottom half. It has a glossy coating which some will like as it provides a very smooth finish that does not get sticky if you suffer a little from hot palms.
It does mean that overall there is not a lot of secondary grips you find with other mice thanks to rubber or textured housing and sides. It would be a matter of preference and even when using it for gaming for MMOs and FPS games, not once did the mouse ever “slip”.
First, of in terms of size and weight, it is smaller than your standard mouse measuring 6.8cm x 11.5cm x 4xm and would be useful for those with smaller hands. It also only weights 88g which for eSports means very little drag but that is only if you are a gamer who likes a mouse which is more flighty.
