Roccat's Kone Pro Air is the latest wireless mouse on the line from Roccat and it mirrors the Kone Pro.

It comes in either an attractive, black or white design, with the dimensions measuring 1.56in x by 2.88in by 4.97in making it a standard, comfortable shape without feeling compact.

With the wide ergonomic right-handed shape, you notice the mouse helps your hand rest in place rather than your index and little finger gripping the sides.

This allows for you to comfortably use the 5 accessible and customisable buttons on the mouse. The mouse also has an on the underside that allows you to switch mouse profiles unfortunately there is no DPI switch.

The Kone Pro Air design looks similar to other mice until you start to break it down.

The plastic material goes from semi-translucent on the two front buttons to solid white(black) at the back.

The front buttons light up and display a honeycomb effect. I assume this honeycomb plastic mould is how they reduce the weight to only 75grams which almost matches the likes of your high-end esports gaming mice.

Combine all of the above with the wide ergonomic shape and the comfortable grip it provides the Kona Pro Air is hard to dismiss as a contender if you are looking for a wireless gaming mouse.

Roccat has also spared nothing when it comes to the internals with its "Owl-Eye sensor" which can track up to 19,000 DPI. Making it quick and accurate enough for any gaming need but especially useful for first-person shooters.

The mouse also uses Titan switches in the click panels that are rated to last 100,000,000 clicks. Titan switches are tactile buttons that provide a slight bump in the middle of the travel, the instant feedback very helpful for competitive gaming.

Although I didn't get the chance to put it through that many clicks the buttons still give off that tactile feel even though they are not your conventional mechanical switch.

Roccat has again excelled with the mouse supporting both Bluetooth and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi via a dongle.

Having tested both playing competitive and non-competitive games for your average users there does not seem to be any noticeable input lag vai either system but Roccat recommends using the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi connection for any serious gamers.

Roccat claims the mouse has up to an impressive 100 hours of battery life.

After Apples disastrous wireless mouse design, I feel the need to tell you that you can continue to use the Kone whilst charging, pair that battery life with being Bluetooth compatible and storage for the dongle under the mouse itself, it makes the perfect travel mouse.

If you need to customise the set-up of the Kone Air Pro you are restricted to using the Windows-only app called "Swarm by Air".

The app allows you to remap buttons and change the RGB lighting along with some power settings. The app also allows you to adjust off mat distance control and it also tried to create a lighting profile based on your behaviours.

You can save your different profiles and settings from here that you can then switch using the Profile button on the underside of the mouse.

Verdict

Overall the Kone Pro Air is a solid choice for anyone in the market for a wireless gaming mouse. It does all of the essentials flawlessly but for the hefty price of £119.99, it does lack some of the high-end gaming features that its competition has.

With its lightweight and profile functions, it makes it the perfect mouse for either gaming on the go or even for work and switching between apps. I just wish I had the option of adding some weight.

Anyone in the market for a great all-rounder, wireless gaming mouse I would not hesitate to recommend the Kone Pro Air.
