Next-Gen Side Button Layout
The current number grid design seen on competitive mice forces so many buttons in such a small space, making it very hard to distinguish which button you are actually clicking. When seconds matter, you don’t want to be doing finger gymnastics trying to find the right spell.
On top of that, the number grid design was only built to fit in the hand, they are not designed to work with how your hand actually moves on the mouse to reach each button.
The Rival 500 features our Next-Gen side button layout where the buttons are pressed by a rotation of the thumb, rather then pressing in to click. This design makes it much easier to identify the individual buttons and combo spells. This way you actually know what button you are clicking, thus mitigating any margin of error by miss clicking.
