KontrolFreek Launches Limited-Edition Saints Row Performance Thumbsticks

- KontrolFreek x Deep Silver celebrate the sprawling new world of Santo Ileso -

CHICAGO – AUGUST 23, 2022KontrolFreek®, the creator of Performance Gaming Gear™, today unveiled the limited-edition Saints Row Performance Thumbsticks® to celebrate the unique sprawling, weird, wild west of Santo Ileso – the biggest and best Saints Row playground ever created.

Taking inspiration from Saints Row cover art, the iconic cowboy landmark has been reimagined as a symbol of the new world and laser-etched within a two-tone vibrant teal and orange color scheme. KontrolFreeks’ proprietary rubber compound offers exceptional grip and requires less force to move – reducing wrist, hand, and thumb fatigue to keep the squad in the fight. Increased accuracy is generated from a pair of Mid-Rise Thumbsticks that add 8.0 mm of height to original stock controller sticks for maximum precision, maneuverability, and speed of target acquisition.

Utilizing the science of ergonomics, KontrolFreek’s performance gear helps improve gameplay by increasing range of motion, comfort, exceptional grip, and control while delivering maximum precision.
