Felix Guerra, who has 20 years of experience in developing equipment for gamers, lead a team of engineers and designers to create the new keyboards and advice while taking advice and feedback from Fnatic players across all of their teams.
Fnatic says the new range meets all the demands of professional esports players but is accessible to gamers of all levels. The new products are available to buy now and will ship May 10th.

As usual, you can purchase the products from the Fnatic Store and Amazon Europe but now, American fans are also included. Fnatic have partnered with American retailer Best Buy to bring the Fnatic Gear products to 330 stores across the US.
Fnatic founder Sam Mathews says the partnership is a huge coup for the organisation: ‘At Fnatic, it is our mission to help bring esports into every household in the world, and the partnership with Best Buy, a household name across North America, is another important step on the way. This is a unique opportunity to make the best esports equipment available to millions of gamers and continue contributing to the rapid growth of the esports industry.’
The STREAK – €129.99
The STREAK is metal build with CHERRY MX switches and hundreds of RGB lighting options
Following the Rush keyboard is the STREAK, which has fully RGB mechanical keyboard. The design is sleek and thin with a focus on comfort with nice ergonomic features such as rest for your wrists.
Like most gaming keyboard, you have a choice of CHERRY MX switches which will decide how tense and loud the buttons are. At €129.99 (£114), it’s a fair bit more expensive than Fnatic’s previous keyboard, the RUSH which costs €89.99 (£79)
The miniSTREAK – €99.99
The miniSTREAK has most of the STREAK’s features but is smaller in a tenkeyless form
This keyboard does what it says on the tin, it’s literally a smaller version of the STREAK keyboard. It’s another fully-RGB mechanical keyboard but in a tenkeyless form – removing the extra number buttons on the right.
Fnatic says the miniSTREAK has almost all the features of it’s big brother but hasn’t detailed exactly what. It’s easier to pack if you’re traveling and cheaper at €99.99 (£87)
Clutch 2 – €59.99
The new Clutch 2 mouse is suited to right-handed gamers and has a ‘best-in-class sensor’
The Clutch 2 is the successor to the Clutch and is designed to suit right-handed gamers. It’s a lightweight mouse with a ‘best-in-class sensor’, tier-1 build quality, textured grip and a refined shape for extra precision. Unsurprisingly, it’s slightly dearer than it’s €44.99 predecessor at €59.99 (£52).
Flick 2 – €59.99
The Flick 2 mouse has a shape and grip for gamers who prefer a more symmetrical feel
Similar to the Clutch 2, this is the second version of the Flick mouse which Fnatic says is used by their LoL and DOTA 2 teams. The Flick 2 features a shape and grip for gamers who prefer a more symmetrical feel. This is also more expensive than it’s predecessor but at a bigger margin, the first Flick costs €39.99 while the new one costs €59.99 (£52).
