ROCCAT Tyon Gaming Mouse Overview
The Tyon is a great looking mouse and has a design that is similar to ROCCAT’s Kone, obviously there are differences with the added buttons. The Kone was one of ROCCAT’s most popular gaming mice so using its base as a design for the Tyon makes sense. There are two different color version of the Tyon, you have white and black, as you can see we received the black version.
Taking a look at the top of the mouse you have your typical right and left mouse buttons. On both top edges of the mouse there are two programmable buttons. These give you quite a lot of options considering their placement.
Of course you have your scroll wheel which has rubber on it for a better grip. The scroll wheel also can be clicked, adding another programmable button there. Below the scroll wheel is the new dorsal fin-switch. This switch is designed to be controlled mid-knuckle and can be moved left or right. ROCCAT has a great video showing off the function of this new switch.
Moving over to the left side of the mouse you can see the new X-Celerator single axis analog thumb paddle. This paddle was specifically designed to work with FPS games that use vehicles. It can be used to easily tilt planes and jets and adjust pitch, and to rotate tank turrets. It is made to eliminate the use of a joystick. Below the X-Celerator button is are two more buttons that typically serve as back and forward buttons. Finally where your thumb sits in another button. Its position makes it quite easy to activate.
On the opposite side of the mouse there are no buttons at all, which is pretty typical. You will notice a small LED bar that goes all the way around the bottom of the mouse. This is a RGBA which means you can configure it to any color that you would like.
Flipping the mouse over there are two large mouse feet, one at the front and the second towards the back. These will help the mouse glide across your gaming surface. At the center of the mouse is the 8200 DPI PRO-AIM R3 sensor.
Taking a look at the cabling we can see that is it nicely braided, which means that it is not going to easily tear or rip.
