What are Hyperglide Mouse Skates?
What are mouse skates ?
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.
- 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.
- 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.
results were obtained via feedback from various
gamers who have adhered strictly to application
and maintenance instructions given on this site.
Results vary in response to unmeasurable and unstandardised
factors like pressure exerted and surface used on.
Please refer to disclaimer.
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.
