Those bright orange beauties you’re feasting your eyes on are the new FPS Freek Vortex available now for Xbox One and PS4. Because of EXTREMELY high demand from you guys, we’ve gone all next-gen with Vortex and we’re pretty excited about it. We hope know that you are too!
In case you were wondering what makes Vortex so special, here’s a little background:
Vortex represents a number of firsts for KontrolFreek. The most obvious is that brilliant orange color you’re staring at. This is the first time we’ve ever broken away from the standard black, white or grey base color and matched the color of the rubber with the color of the base.
The second thing you’ll notice is that each stick is a different size. The taller, standard FPS Freek is meant for your right thumbstick to give you more leverage and accuracy while aiming. The shorter, CQC-style FPS Freek was designed for your left thumbstick to add grip and comfort, without unnecessary height. We believe when used as intended, this is the strongest combination for most first and third-person games.
The last thing you’ll notice about Vortex is that each of the sticks has a different surface shape for your thumbs. The right stick is convex, giving you a consistent contact surface for fluid movements and more precision. The left stick is concave for optimized grip and comfort.
Though the two sticks differ in height and function, each one employs a soft and comfortable rubberized thumb pad and features a laser-etched design that adapts to the pressure you put on it. The synergistic FPS Freek Vortex is ideal for those who desire enhanced precision for their aiming stick but only wish to add grip to their movement stick.
Please let us know what sticks you’d like to see updated next for next-gen consoles in the comments.
If you’d like to purchase the FPS Freek Vortex for either current or next-gen, you can get them now for only $13.99.
