About the Razer Goliathus Speed Edition

Recognizing that every gamer has a different gaming style with different
profiles, the highly adaptable Razer Goliathus Speed Edition successfully melds
the full-scale speed, acceleration and razor-sharp responsiveness of hard mats
with the precise control and comfort offered by uncoated soft pads. The Razer
Goliathus Speed Edition features an improved iteration of Razer’s proven woven
fiber technology, and is available in three sizes.

About the Razer Goliathus Control Edition

The Razer Goliathus Control Edition enhances the precision and tactile
response of gaming-grade mice without introducing excessive drag and premature
surface degradation. Also available in three sizes, the tournament-tuned
textured weave in the Razer Goliathus Control Edition enables all mice to
register even small movements, providing unprecedented targeting and tracking
accuracy while maintaining a controlled, consistent glide.

The Razer Goliathus – co-development with pro-gaming teams and their

Field-validated by world championship professional gamers and teams specializing
in different gaming genres, the Razer Goliathus is a legacy written with the
footprints of gamers from Amazing Gaming (Ukraine), Fnatic (Sweden), Lunatic-Hai
(Korea), Team Dignitas (UK), Team EG (Canada) and Team World Elite (China) and
with Razer’s lab scientists.

“The Goliathus Control Edition is my choice for two simple reasons. It has an
ultra-responsive textured surface for unsurpassed mouse control, and is built to
withstand the brutal frictional wear of professional eSports use. No other cloth
mat compares,” declared Xiaofeng “Sky” Li, Team World Elite’s Warcraft 3 player.
WE.Sky is China’s top professional gamer and arguably the best Human player in
the world. Inducted into the WCG Hall of Fame for becoming the first back to
back Warcraft III champion in history (with his gold medals in 2005 and 2006)
and coming in 2nd in 2007, Sky has accomplished everything a Warcraft 3 player
could ever wish for. He dominated the first two PGL seasons, and has earned
notable victories in events such ACON 5 and the International E-Sports Festival.
In 2006, he was lauded as the best Warcraft 3 player by the world’s leading
eSports media.

“With the improved smoothness of the Razer Goliathus Speed Edition, I am able
to consistently hit those crucial shots that determine whether I win or lose,”
said Jason "stryfe" Dourlaris, Team EG’s Unreal Tournament player. Boasting an
accomplished history with the Unreal Tournament (UT) franchise and a 1st
runner-up placing in the Rise to Glory tournament held at the tail-end of 2007,
Jason "stryfe" Dourlaris has emerged as one of the biggest names in the UT3
community. He currently captains Team EG’s UT3 side, and is poised to take them
to the leading position once the game gains traction in the competitive circuit.

Quote from Razer’s president:

“The Razer Goliathus was developed after much field-study with our scientists
and professional gamers. The Razer Goliathus is suited for all mouse types,
sensitivity setups and playing styles, and is engineered for any professional
gamer,” said Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, president of Razer.”
