The Rival brings together unmatched performance, an all-new design, and
high levels of customization to make it the ultimate
professional-grade, right-handed mouse.
The Rival’s performance reigns over the competition thanks to a cutting
edge sensor, newly developed switches engineered by SteelSeries, and a
suite of tweaks to give you the edge over your rivals.
It had been many years since we last built a right-handed mouse so we
felt Rival was long overdue. We went back to the drawing board and
built off classic gamer favorites to make this mouse the ultimate
solution in ergonomic feel.
Rival is incredibly customizable with 16.8 million color, 2-zone
illumination, a 3D printable nameplate for individuality, and
SteelSeries Engine 3 for finely-tuned performance adjustments.
POWERFUL OPTICAL SENSOR AND LONG-LASTING SWITCHES
ADVANCED OPTICAL SENSOR
At the heart of Rival is the Pixart PMW3310 optical sensor. The 3310
promises zero hardware acceleration, offering true 1:1 tracking and
precise movements no matter how fast things get during the heat of
battle. The CPI is best-in-class with adjustments from 50 to 6500.
Our proprietary SteelSeries engineered switches have a lifetime of over
30 million clicks and are the high-speed conduit between the sensor and
mouse clicks. The audible mouse click is subtle, while delivering
quick, tactile responsiveness.
When it’s time to get competitive you can really dial-in your settings
thanks to SteelSeries Engine 3. Adjustable CPI, programmable buttons,
polling rate, angle snapping, acceleration and deceleration are among
the customizations that will make the mouse perform as you see fit.
SHAPED BY HISTORY, CLASSIC COMFORT
Rival’s shape was molded from some of the most iconic gaming mice of
the past. We took great lengths to ensure a comfortable fit thanks to
the right-handed orientation, a raised back end, and sleek contours.
SURFACE & GRIPS
The black version of Rival features soft-touch paint for a unique
experience. It’s a matte finish while still feeling incredibly smooth.
The anti-sweat coating helps to maintain great contact even during
intense gaming sessions.
Rival can also be decked out in a white, glossy surface. This makes the
mouse easy to clean and gives players who prefer a smooth surface a
choice as well.
Both versions offer real, molded rubber grips that aren’t just a
sticker. These are direct injected rubber for better control and grip.
No one wants to do finger gymnastics just to press a button on their
mouse. We engineered Rival with ergonomic button positioning and size
so clicks and movements feel natural, quick, and don’t take away from
Rival features two independent lighting zones that are capable of 16.8
million colors. Colors can be adjusted in each zone, per specific
profile, game or application. Four brightness levels and three lighting
effects to choose from—Steady, ColorShift and Breathe—will help make
Rival your own.
STEELSERIES ENGINE 3
Our new software suite is where you take control of the mouse and its
many features. This new version of SteelSeries Engine gives users a
unified application to control all of their SteelSeries products,
offers cross platform support, and will feature a cloud syncing system
to make sure you always have your Rival settings.
3D PRINTABLE NAMEPLATE
Handy with a 3D printer? Why not design your own Rival nameplate?
To switch out the nameplate, simply pry the existing one off at either
end (a fingernail or the tip of a pen can do the trick) and pop your
new one in.
