With the ambidextrous and well-proportioned SteelSeries Kana in your hand, you can be confident in hitting your mark when the pressure is on. While the Kana CS:GO Edition is limited to six-buttons, it still offers a great amount of customization via the SteelSeries Engine and a paint job fit for some intense CQB action. 

 

Overview

 SteelSeries Kana CS:GO Edition

 

The SteelSeries Kana CS:GO Edition is an optical, ambidextrous mouse designed for all three grip styles: palm, claw and swipe. The functionality, ergonomic button layout and size was perfected alongside SteelSeries’ professional gaming teams, who also tested and validated the precision and power hidden in the Kana’s modest exterior. Make no mistake; this mouse was built for consistency and accuracy even in professional tournament conditions. The SteelSeries Kana CS:GO Edition bridges the gap between the kinzu and the Sensei. With 6 buttons, a tournament grade optical sensor, high performance UPE feet, it strikes an ideal balance in size, features and performance.

SteelSeries Kana CS:GO

Featuring a CounterStrike: Global Offensive™ unique design, the SteelSeries Kana CounterStrike: Global Offensive Edition is an optical, ambidextrous mouse designed for all three grip styles: palm, claw and swipe. Based on the Steelseries Kana mouse, the functionality, ergonomic button layout and size was perfected alongside SteelSeries’ professional gaming teams, who also tested and validated the precision and power hidden in the Kana’s modest exterior. Make no mistake; this mouse was built for consistency and accuracy even in professional tournament conditions.

 

The SteelSeries Kana

We do more than talk a good game. We play, we create, we push the standards in peripheral design. Kana can mean many different things in different languages. In Swedish, canary. In Azerbjjan, blood. In Hawaiian, demigod. To us, gaming is a culture combined of many languages. Kana means, precision, control, winning and the ability to make you a better player.

The SteelSeries Kana CS:GO Edition bridges the gap between the kinzu and the Sensei. With 6 buttons, a tournament grade optical sensor, high performance UPE feet, it strikes an ideal balance in size, features and performance.

 

You Want More Buttons?

The SteelSeries Kana CS:GO Edition features 2 XL-sized, side buttons (one on each side) for easy rapid-fire. If you choose to not use them, then head over to the SteelSeries Engine to disable. You’re welcome.

 

Ambidextrous

The SteelSeries Kana CS:GO Edition has an ergonomic, ambidextrous design makes it a natural fit for both right and left handed users.

 

The SteelSeries Engine

The SteelSeries Engine allows you to customize your mouse settings like never before. With the SteelSeries Engine installed you are able to:

  • Set custom CPI settings
  • Set LED intensity per CPI
  • Program your mouse buttons
  • Set polling rate
  • Record macros
  • Track button usage statistics
  • Set game triggers for profiles
  • Setup unlimited profiles for the settings above...

 

Lighting With Purpose

The illuminated scroll wheel is both stylish and functional. Utilizing the SteelSeries Engine, the LED intensity can be assigned to indicate the currently active CPI profile.

 

Easy To Adjust CPI

The centrally located toggle button allows you to quickly switch between two sensitivity settings. The pre-defined CPI settings in the Kana CS:GO Edition are used and recommended by professional gamers all over the world. These CPI settings, which reach up to 3200, are also easily adjustable via the SteelSeries Engine.

 

Mouse Glides

Material: High performance UPE material covers 16 % of mouse bottom to ensure maximum glide. We recommend changing glides regularly as they will eventually be worn down.

 

Stability

The SteelSeries Kana CS:GO Edition is made to be stable on every kind of surface with the help of its top of the line optical sensor. This sensor is also designed to eliminate jitter and provide optimized stability for the user.

 

Superior Tracking

The SteelSeries Kana CS:GO Edition uses advanced, optical technology that operates at 3600 Frames Per Second and supports stable movement speeds at 130 Inches Per Second. These specs simply say that regardless of your frantic movements, the mouse will consistently deliver, especially for fast-paced FPS games.
