Logitech G has unveiled its lightest wireless esports gaming mouse yet, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight Complete with ‘Lightspeed’ wireless technology, the HERO 25K sensor, and a highly refined mechanical design, this featherlight gaming mouse is quickly becoming the new gold standard for the world’s most elite esports professionals. Now, the ultra-fast mouse is available for everyday gamers who want the best of the best gaming equipment.
The new Pro X Superlight, lightweight gaming mouse joins an impressive line-up of Pro Series gear. To ensure it met the demands of competitive gaming, the device was field-tested and played a key role in helping ASTRALIS win the Season 12 ESL Pro League Final, and G2 Esports win the 2020 League of Legends European Championship.
Logitech G says its new Pro X Superlight, mouse removes all obstacles to winning and I can’t fault them there. It is indeed a mouse built for performance. The new mouse weighs less than 63 grams and is nearly 25% lighter than the standard Pro Wireless. The uber-premium esports mouse is the lightest wireless gaming mouse I’ve ever used, and it’s easy to see why it would be an asset in a competitive setting.
It’s also got a few bells and whistles that make it a pleasure to use, such as a wireless dongle storage area and an extra, glide-friendly base panel, but the real shining light of this mouse is its streamlined design. Logitech G says the Pro X Superlight, was meticulously redesigned and engineered to reduce weight while enhancing performance.
The result is a mouse crafted with simplicity in mind; it’s got just five buttons and has large, zero-additive PTFE feet, for a low-friction experience that delivers precision, speed and manoeuvrability. The five-button, right-handed design features two click panels, a clickable scroll wheel and two side buttons. Its lightweight design is especially impressive for a wireless mouse, considering it requires a battery and additional components that add weight.
Even more impressive is the size of the mouse. Many esports mouse manufactures chasing the illusive title of ‘lightest gaming mouse ever’ tend to opt for a smaller size mouse, that is more difficult to hold, to shave off precious grams. But, measuring 1.56 by 2.5 by 4.94 inches (HWL), the Pro X Superlight is an average size mouse that fits easily into the hand with no compromises on size and manoeuvrability. The device’s low-sloping chassis fits super well in hand, and it’s comfortable to use for long periods of time.
Equipped with Logitech G’s HERO 25K sensor at 25,600 DPI, Logitech says it’s the industry’s first mouse sensor that can accurately track movement at the sub-micron level — approximately 1/50th the thickness of a human hair — without compromising on accuracy. The sensor does this without the use of smoothing and spurious motion or parasitic counts.
The HERO 25K sensor utilises a smart power management system to continuously adjust frame rates based on the movement of the mouse to minimise power consumption. Even at high DPI, the HERO 25K is 10X more power-efficient than previous Logitech G sensors.
The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is extremely responsive, and it’s reassuring having a mouse like this on your side when every second and every click counts. It makes gaming a real pleasure and is a must-buy for anyone looking to invest in the best of the best for their gaming experience. This mouse may have been designed for the pros, but there’s no reason discerning amateur gamers can’t enjoy its professionalism in the comfort of their own homes as well.
While the minimalist approach of Logitech G’s design for Pro X Superlight may make its price hard to swallow, the mouse is too well-designed to be ignored. If you like nice things and are the type to invest in gaming as a serious hobby, you’ll love the edge the Pro X Superlight provides.
