If you’re looking for a new pad for your desk, manufacturer Razer has two new models up its sleeve for you. The Razer Strider Chroma mouse pad comes with the manufacturer’s typical RGB lighting, while the Goliathus Chroma 3XL – also including lighting – almost completely covers medium-sized desks with a width of 1200 mm.
Razer Strider Chroma gaming mouse pad unveiled
The Strider hybrid gaming mouse pad gets an addition in the form of the Razer Strider Chroma. Full-bodied, they talk about the “world’s first hybrid mouse pad with multiple lighting zones”. So, if you like it colorful and are in the Razer cosmos anyway, you can now also let your desktop pad shine in colorful colors in sync with your mouse, keyboard and more. Thus, the Strider Chroma offers 19 individually customizable lighting zones.
It features hybrid, soft and hard, materials, like all models in the Strider series, and is designed for an optimal balance of speed and control, offering a high level of glide.
The Razer Strider Chroma also features a non-slip underside complete with a dimpled pattern that keeps the mouse pad securely in place on the table or surface, even during quick movements.
It’s water-resistant, making it easy to wipe away accidental spills of refreshments, while the illuminated edges blend seamlessly into the mouse pad. The Strider Chroma measures 900mm long and 370mm high, coming in at 4mm thick. Made of polyester, it connects to PC or notebook via USB-A for RGB lighting.

Razer Goliathus Chroma 3XL: Can it be a little wider?
If the dimensions aren’t enough for you, then the new Razer Goliathus Chroma 3XL gaming mouse pad might be a better choice for you. It comes in at 1,200 mm wide and 550 mm high, but is a bit slimmer with a thickness of 3.5 mm.
The surface consists of a microtexture and is much softer than the Strider. Of course, you don’t have to do without the Razer Chroma RGB lighting here either. Due to the soft surface, Razer promises maximum precision for mice such as the Viper V2 Pro, which we recently tested ourselves.
Of course, with such a large surface area, you can easily position your keyboard on the mouse pad. Or you can simply place it next to it to give the rodent additional freedom of movement.
Here, Razer does have various solutions at the ready, such as the new and extremely low DeathStalker V2 Pro (our review) with innovative low-profile keys.
Prices and availability
The two new gaming mouse pads, Razer Strider Chroma and Goliathus Chroma 3XL, aren’t quite cheap, though. Both variants are available now on Razer.com, as well as in RazerStores worldwide.
