Every good gaming set up requires a great gaming mat to facilitate responsive mouse movements, prevent your keyboard from moving around and protect your desk from stains or spills. Many gaming mats are presented in a black coloring, to suit much of the standard gaming equipment available on the market.
Black gaming accessories do not fit into everyone’s setup, since it may not match up with the aesthetic you are aiming for. Some people prefer to have a white gaming setup, which can be difficult to build due to the limited amount of products available. Here we will explore some options for some white gaming mats to protect your desk and enhance your gaming experience.
Glorious GW-E Extended Full Desk Pro Gaming Surface
While traditional mouse pads are fairly small to just encompass the mouse, some more extended gaming surfaces have emerged to incorporate both the mouse and keyboard, protecting the desk in the process. The Glorious GW-E Extended Full Desk Pro Gaming Surface is available in a clean white finish, with extremely large dimensions of 914 x 3 x 379mm.
This extra space will allow wide turning circles that are particularly useful for first person shooter titles.
To ensure that the gaming surface does not move around the desk while you are playing, it features a non-slip rubber base. To prevent the edges of the gaming surface from becoming frayed, it features robust stitched edges.
The surface itself is a premium cloth that is perfect for optical sensors and is low-friction for full control and speed. Being 3mm thick, the gaming surface is not intrusive on your desk and it features a foam core for full durability.
It is inevitable after some time for the surface to get dirty but luckily the product is fully machine washable.
Razer Pro Glide XXL
The Razer Pro Glide XXL is another large gaming surface but is available in an off-white or even gray color which can fit into a wide variety of gaming setups. The size of the surface is very generous, with dimensions of 71.6 x 71.6 x 26.9cm to facilitate a full range of mouse movements.
The surface itself is manufactured from a thick, high density rubber foam for enhanced comfort, durability and control. Similar to the previous option, the Razer Pro Glide XXL is 3mm thick for a cushioned but unobtrusive feel.
The cloth is a textured micro-weave for quick and accurate mouse movements, perfect for all kinds of optical sensors. The base also features an anti-slip design to keep the mat in place with a special grip texture. Razer offers a whole range of white gaming peripherals that will pair effortlessly with the Razer Pro Glide XXL.
Razer Goliathus Extended Chroma Gaming Surface
Here is another option from Razer in the Goliathus Chroma Extended gaming surface in a muted mercury color. This option is different to the previous options since it includes a chroma RGB edge light that extends around the full perimeter of the surface. This allows you to customize your lighting profile with 16.8 million color options to suit your taste.
The Goliathus is available in a range of sizes up to a maximum size of 1200 x 550 x 3.5mm to fit into your setup. The surface itself is a micro-textured cloth which ensures a comfortable feel and precision mouse movements. Like the previous options, the Goliathus gaming surface features a non-slip rubber base with a grooved texture to keep the product firmly in place even in intense gaming sessions.
Logitech G Mouse Pad
For a smaller, simpler white gaming mouse pad, the Logitech G Aurora collection is a fantastic choice. Available in green, white and red, this mouse pad is much smaller at 400 x 460 x 3mm. If you are looking for a smaller, more traditional mouse pad available in white, this one is for you.
Odin Gaming Zero Gravity Mousepad
Odin offer a range of white mousepads with many different sizes. The two white options are solid white or white with a pink trim to suit a range of users. Their innovative zero gravity surface allows for high speed movements while maintaining complete control.
As is standard, the Odin features a stable rubber base for a non-slip design. The stitching is ultra thick to enhance the durability and reduce the irritation on the wrist. It is slightly thicker than the previous options at 4mm to provide extra padding for your wrists while smoothing out uneven surfaces.
BattleBull Grazed Extended Mouse Mat
For an option that features a more gaming style graphic printed onto the white gaming surface, the BattleBull Grazed Extended Mouse mat is a great option. It is also available in green, black, blue, purple, red and gray. This extended mouse pad is 900mm wide, giving you enough space to achieve full control. It features a heavy duty, anti-slip rubber base with a textured finish to keep the mouse mat in place during intense gaming sessions. The edge features heavy duty stitching to prevent fraying and ensure a comfortable wrist feel.
Although most gaming mouse pads and full desk surfaces are black in color, this will not fit in with many gaming setups to suit different personal tastes. The products identified above offer a variety of great options for white gaming mats to protect your desk, enhance your gaming experience and look amazing.
