The mouse offers a polling rate of 1,000 Hz and a lift-off distance of 1-2 mm. The rodent offers a whole 8 buttons, which brings it to a size of 127 mm x 70.2 mm x 42.2 mm. The Makalu Max is made of ABS plastic and weighs around 110 grams. 5 profiles can be stored on the onboard memory, while the two main buttons are supposed to be particularly durable thanks to Kailh GM 8.0 switches.

One special feature of the Mountain Makalu Max, however, is its customizable design. Basically, the gaming mouse relies on an ergonomic design, but comes with customizable side grips that can be easily attached magnetically.
Thus, wide grips can be attached to both sides, which can serve as a rest for the thumbs and other fingers. You can choose between one or both sides. Metal rings can also be attached to the underside:
