Kailh GO Optical Switches
The XM2we features Kailh's latest release, the Kailh GO optical switches, which have been optimized based on our feedback throughout 2022. Despite being an optical switch, the Kailh GO switch has a distinct actuation point with the result of a pleasant, almost mechanical-like click feeling. The GO switches have a lifespan of 80 million actuations without the risk of unwanted double-clicking, even at fast debounce times.
The CompX CX52850 MCU provides stable wireless connectivity at a 1000Hz polling rate. Combined with the PixArt PAW3370 sensor running in corded mode, it guarantees optimal gaming performance. The XM2we Configuration Software lets you remap all your buttons and adjust debounce time, polling rate, and sensor settings (CPI, LoD, etc.).
An all-new mouse wheel construction enables a mechanical micro switch in the form of Kailh's GM2.0 for the middle mouse button combined with a (wide) TTC silver scroll wheel encoder. The new side button construction of the XM2we uses the same Kailh GM2.0 switches for a crisper click feeling and vastly improved durability over the XM1r side button switches.
The XM2we's design is sleek and durable, with reliable components and a new large skate design. It's the same shape as XM1 but with a lower overall weight while using a 410mAh battery. The coating is still the same matte UV coating from XM1 and XM1r, which offers a perfect grip even with sweaty hands. The XM2we charges by a supplied USB-C cable (180cm) with an angled connector.
