MOUNTAIN follows up modular Everest keyboards with modular mouse

, ,

We’re pretty big fans of MOUNTAIN here at Techaeris. In case you’re unfamiliar with the company, they make peripherals including keyboards that you can customize with add-ons. Following up on their Makula gaming mouse, the company has announced the Makula Max modular wireless mouse with swappable side panels and weight rings.

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

While there are a few other modular mice available on the market, the Makula Max from MOUNTAIN offers four swappable side panels (two for each side) and three weight discs — a feature missing from many mice lately. Not only do the three discs allow for different weights for the mouse, but their grooved design let you re-adjust the balance to better suit your preferences.

“Makalu Max’ incredible flexibility and modularity brings to mice what Everest brought to keyboards. It enables users to choose their perfect loadout for the task at hand, be it a competitive gaming session or office work.”

Bram Rongen, Head of Product at MOUNTAIN
