The Xtrfy M42 has long-held a place in the hearts of PC gamers, with its ultralight design, snappy response, and top-tier sensor. So has the MZ1, a mouse designed in collaboration with Rocket Jump Ninja, one of the internet’s favorite mouse reviewers. However, both have always suffered from being wired, given that wired mice are slowly becoming a thing of the past, many gamers have opted for other gaming mice, like the Razer Viper Ultimate or Glorious Model O wireless. Cable-hating minimalists can rest easy now, as Xtrfy has announced wireless variants of the M42 and the MZ1, alongside a new series of mousepads and mouse kins in collaboration with Lizard.

In a rare change from the norm of gaming peripheral releases, we can actually see some concrete specs, instead of having to speculate from images and make educated guesses as we had to do with the recent Model I announcement from Glorious. So, let’s have a look at what we have to look forward to with the release of the Xtrfy M42 and MZ1 wireless.

Xtrfy M42 wireless specs

It would appear that the Xtrfy M42 wireless boasts very similar specs to its wired counterpart, with a couple of interesting additions.
