Available on Fnatic.com and Amazon Europe, the new gaming peripherals are also available online at BestBuy.com and will be coming to Best Buy stores on May 20th.

Those in gaming communities may recognize Fnatic as one of the world’s leading eSports brands with teams competing in games like CS:GOPaladinsHeroes of the StormLeague of Legends, and more. Founded in 2004, the company also has a limited lineup of mechanical gaming keyboards and gaming mice and are adding to that lineup with the introduction of two new keyboards and two new mice.

First up is a pair of mechanical gaming keyboards featuring Cherry MX switches: the STREAK RGB mechanical keyboard and the miniSTREAK tenkeyless RGB mechanical keyboard. Both keyboards feature a comfort-focused and precision engineered metal design build and are optimized for eSports. The obvious main difference between the two is the fact that the STREAK includes a number pad while the miniSTREAK does not.

On the gaming mice side, the CLUTCH 2 and FLICK 2 are lightweight, professional-grade mice. Offering the same internal components and functionality, the CLUTCH 2 is designed for right-handed users while the FLICK 2 has a more symmetrical look and feel for gamers who prefer that style instead.
