DESIGNED BY GAMERS: THE STEELSERIES KANA
We do more than talk a good game. We play, we create, we push the standards in peripheral design. Kana can mean many different things in different languages. In Swedish, canary. In Azerbjjan, blood. In Hawaiian, demigod. To us, gaming is a culture combined of many languages. Kana means, precision, control, winning and the ability to make you a better player.
The Steel Series Kana bridges the gap between the kinzu and the Sensei. With 6 buttons, a tournament grade optical sensor, teflon feet, it strikes an ideal balance in size, features and performance.
