Mountain Makalu 67 – Lightweight mouse with high-end sensor in test

Mountain – as an up-and-coming manufacturer from Germany – wants to roll up the peripheral market with innovative and high-performance products. Reach Your Summit – in German: “Erreichen deinen Gipfel” – is the motto. The requirement speaks for itself: Every gamer should reach his performance peak with Mountain products. Due to the fact that Mountain itself was founded by gamers, the requirements for gaming are well known and that’s exactly what the hardware was optimized for.

The Makalu 67 is a very light mouse with a new sensor – the PixArt PAW3370. You can find out how this mouse does in the practical test here in the review.

Design and workmanship

“Reach Your Summit” already characterizes the packaging. In a beautiful and simple packaging, the package reached us safely.  As expected, the scope of delivery is manageable – besides the mouse, there is a manual, replacement gliders and some stickers in the box.

We are testing the black version of the mouse – this is also available in white. At first glance, the holes catch the eye – to save weight, plastic was saved. You can look directly into the mouse’s interior through elongated cutouts with small bars.

Basically, the mouse has six buttons: left and right click, two thumb buttons, a DPI button and the scroll wheel push button. These can be freely assigned in the in-house software. There is a small LED strip around the scroll wheel and the DPI button. There are also four small LEDs at this point to indicate the current DPI level.

We are particularly taken with the cable. This has a very soft fabric sleeve, which glides very smoothly over all common surfaces. In addition, with the connection to the mouse running upwards in a small bend, the mouse feels almost wireless – there is no noticeable restriction due to the cable.
