The Kova itself is very sleek looking with a hard plastic shell that’s matt black with a very smooth surface. Running along the body is an embossed “Roccat” logo that looks pretty cool.
Along the left and right hand sides are two buttons sat just above a rubberised grip; one for your thumb, the other for your ring and little fingers.
Along the front are the usual left and right click buttons, with the central scroll wheel which is double sized with a peak which makes it at least a little different from the average mice. There’s also a couple of clear plastic slats that will allow LED light to shine through when turned on.
Flipping the Kova over you have four teflon mouse feet to help the mouse slip and slide across your mat.
The cable is the usual rubberised affair, and its nice to see Roccat didn’t waste money on using a gold leafed USB connector. However, I do like that they’ve made the plastic surround for the USB look rather unique. That way if you’re ever fishing around at the back of your case, you know exactly which cable the mouse is – should you wish to unplug it.
