Sharing the general lines of their design, both Kone Pro and Kone Pro Air are presented with a medium-low size body, with an ergonomic right-handed shape in which long click buttons stand out, a pronounced rest for the palm, a curvature in the central part of both sides, and a small rest area for the thumb. In addition, both models have a small non-slip finish, only interrupted on the left side, where we can find a textured non-slip rubber surface with grooves to improve grip.
However, the first changes come with weight. And it is that although both Kone Pro and Kone Pro Air have the internal structure Roccat Bionic Shell presented in their latest mice, which with a pattern of holes in the shape of a honeycomb (the one that we will only appreciate in the front part of the clicks when we have the RGB lighting active), it is still curious that weigh 66 and 75 grams respectively, the Pro Air being slightly heavier. Although it is still a really light figure, placing them among the lightest mice on the market.
So the big difference is in connectivity. While the Kone Pro equips a PhantomFlex cable To achieve the sensation of unrestricted movement, the Kone Pro Air presents us with absolute freedom thanks to your dual wireless connectivity system, being able to switch between the 2.4 GHz frequency through its USB connector or the Bluetooth connection.
Finally, as good gaming peripherals, we cannot ignore that both models will include the option to synchronize their lighting with the products. AIMO RGB compatible. Something that will allow us to connect and synchronize these mice with other desktop products of the brand and that multiple devices share a pattern to offer a unique atmosphere and lighting.

Already available in the official Roccat web store, we can currently find both mice available in two models of black and white colors, starting with the Kone Pro under a recommended price of 79.99 euros, and ascending up to 129.99 euros in the case of the Kone Pr Air.
Although it is expected that during the next few weeks greater availability will be added through other local distributors such as Amazon.
