Toggle On-the-Fly

With “Toggle On-the-fly” we introduce an option for gamers to have 2 different sensitivity settings and switch between them with only 1 button click below the scroll wheel on the mouse. This allows you to switch your sensitivity settings quickly, whehter it’s for different weapon types in FPS games or in player vs. player action for MMORPG games.

Reasonable Price

To us, it’s important that when we remove the “extras” in a piece of hardware, the price should follow. This is why the SteelSeries Ikari Optical is in a reasonable price range, compared to other optical mice in the market. The balance between options, price, and quality is what makes this product one of the best in its category.

Driverless, Plug and Play

There are no external drivers needed to configure your settings for the Ikari Optical. All you need is in the mouse itself, which makes it perfect for travel and when using multiple platforms or computers.

Maximum Performance

The SteelSeries Ikari Optical mouse is designed for one thing, to perform. FPS gamers love this mouse for its straight forward no-nonsense approach to gaming. But don’t be fooled by its simplicity, it’s whats “under the hood” that makes this mouse and FPS gamers ultimate weapon.

Large Glide Surface for Maximum Control

The large glide pads underneath the mouse give it a smooth and fluent glide on any surface. This provides extra stability and reduces friction for maximum control.
We recommend to change glides regularly as they eventually get worn down. See our made to fit SteelSeries Glide Ikari.

The Solution for First Person Shooters

The unique shape of the Ikari Optical was more than a 15 month long journey of design innovation and testing in order to create an optimal FPS gaming mouse. If you like a mouse that can deliver high performance with a simplistic look and feel, then the SteelSeries Ikari Optical is made for you.
