The Rival 100 is set at an unbeatable price, if those statements are correct. I look forward to testing the Rival 100 so what are we waiting for lets get going!

WE ARE GAMING
SteelSeries has fueled the gaming industry by creating innovative new products, designed specifically for eSports and passionate gamers everywhere.
Here at SteelSeries, we are obsessed with “firsts”. Dating back to 2001, our company was formed to meet the surface needs of hardcore gamers by introducing the first glass mousepad, the Icemat. Since that original innovation, we created the first mechanical gaming keyboard, the first suspended headband for gaming headsets, the first World of Warcraft mouse and endless other innovations. SteelSeries is dedicated to building products that push professional gaming further than anyone dreamed. Those innovations make gaming more competitive and more fun for gamers everywhere.
Our fans, customers and professional eSports teams demand the ultimate performance from SteelSeries. We combine the necessity of professional-grade quality and durability with our unyielding pursuit of simple, modern design. Every surface, button, dial, key and wheel is designed with the gamer’s every move in mind. It’s our goal to deliver gaming peripherals that feel like an extension of you. Our designers hand-pick every material to make sure you have a beautiful product and our engineers test every feature, ensuring tournament-ready quality.
