Corsair has added a new member to its keyboard family called the Strafe. This full-size unit is equipped with linear Cherry MX red switches and matching red backlighting. Although the color isn't configurable, the backlight can be toggled on a per-key basis. Users can choose from six preset lighting effects or customize their own via Corsair's CUE software. The Corsair utility also provides macro functionality and profile sharing.
The Strafe has a pass-through USB port and the standard set of multimedia shortcuts. Other amenities include textured key caps for the QWER/ASDF block that are contoured to prevent gamers' fingers from straying. The contoured caps can be swapped for standard ones, but there's no alternative to the textured spacebar.
Corsair says the Strafe will sell for $109.99 when it becomes available in June.
