More than ten years ago, Roccat launched the first version of the Kone gaming mouse. For this year’s anniversary, the latest model will follow, which is named “Kone Aimo”. This model extends the already high-quality mouse series by further functions. What these functions are and what we think of them, we will tell you in this test.

Design & Workmanship
The Roccat Kone Aimo is available in three different colours. In addition to black and white, there is also a gray color variant that was used in this test. Those who are familiar with the older Roccat Kone Gaming Mause will not experience any big surprises at the Roccat Kone Aimo. However, if you take a closer look at the rodent, you will notice some changes and adjustments. In addition to a more striking line, the thumb recess or shelf on the left side has become larger and a lower thumb button has been added. In addition, the lighting elements are much more clearly visible, which is to be emphasized positively and results in a harmonious overall picture.
Once again, Roccat does everything right in terms of processing. Like many of its predecessors, the Roccat Kone Aimo has nothing to complain about. Nothing squeaks, creaks or rattles. All components are absolutely solid and do not shake. As far as quality assurance is concerned, one or the other manufacturer could still learn a lot from Roccat.
Where you could possibly subtract a point is the weight. With a combat weight of 130 grams the Kone Aimo is quite heavy. Flexible weights or a generally lower weight would have been desirable to avoid overstraining the wrist during longer gaming sessions. However, this is of course perceived differently by each person, which is why the mouse with its size and weight can be absolutely perfect for some users.
