The original Icemat was launched in 2000, targeted at one of the most demanding consumer groups in the world: gamers. Since then Icemat has expanded the portfolio and today offers a wide range of products. Everything is created by people who demand as much from the visual design as they do from the performance of the final product. The 2nd Edition Icemat mouse pads are (just as the original) made of glass and offers unprecedented precision and style in no less than 8 different colours. The Icemat Siberia headsets come in different flavours and sizes with both full-size and in-ear models available. For further information please visit http://www.icemat.com.
