What are Hyperglide Mouse Skates?

What are mouse skates ? (updated)

When we first defined what mouse skates are, it was the year 2003 and multi-player PC gaming was growing fast but still young. Hyperglide Mouse Skates were created as a replacement for stock mice feet that provided a much better glide and longevity. This glide is what the word "skates" describes. However, although gamers loved using Hyperglides, they weren't comfortable removing the stock feet and preferred to use Hyperglides ontop of the stock feet. As the entire gaming scene grew, gamers realised that replacing the stock feet was the better option and Hyperglides became the chose of many top level professional gamers.

Hyperglides are made to help you play your best.


The Hyperglide difference


Hyperglide skates are built around three main strengths.

Glide - Because Hyperglide skates are made from 100% Virgin Grade Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), it delivers premium glide across any surface. There are many different grades of PTFE and Virgin Grade is the highest quality and purest form.

Durability - Other brands of mouse skates are so thin that the material wears out quickly (roughly 2 weeks of heavy use). However, Hyperglide skates are at least 0.50mm thick (see specifications). This results in skates that lasts for months1. Take a look at tested durability results here.

Consistency - This refers to Hyperglide skates being able to provide the same "feel" from the first day you use it till when its worn thin months down the road. As a very picky gamer myself, I understand the need to have a constant feeling of the mouse when gaming. I believe that only through consistency can gamers truely improve on their playing skills.
This is why we all invest in mousepads and mouseskates. We all know that tape based skates lose their original glide and feel after a week of usage. After a couple of weeks they become sticky.
This is why Hyperglide mouse skates are the best.
