Howdy! Welcome to your About Us web page.
In the beginning the computer gamer scene was devoid of any real mouse surface that was anything more than the token $1 mouse pad that your dad brought home from a trade show and now you’re using it as your main mouse surface. This my friends, was in 1999.
During that year a friend and I decided to hold our first LAN party. If you’re not sure what that, please search it using your search engine of choice.
At this LAN party I designed a really cool pattern that seemed to make my Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer (introduced to the market in 1999 by the way) track significantly better than just a plain surface. So I printed up the pattern and heated it to a blank mouse pad. Now I was up and running with our very first mouse pad. This was not intended to become a business mind you, I was working as a Microsoft contractor at that time and was making a lot of money so I didn’t really consider making this a business.
As I was saying, I had this awesome mouse pad and brought it to the LAN. Lots of people walked by where I was sitting and noticed my new pad, I even let some of the gamers there try it out. Everyone was asking me where they could get one so that’s when my friend and I had the idea of making some of these for sale at our next LAN.
Moving forward in time to March 2002… we opened our business, PCXmods.com and introduced our first mass produced mouse surface, the X-Trac Pro. It was an 8.5″ x 11″ cloth pad with our first HD hex print on it. It was a true thing of beauty and there was nothing like it on the market.
I don’t want to bore you but suffice it to say, my friend and I started a really cool thing that today is known as XTracGear. We (XTracGear) continue to innovate new products and materials and bring them to market after doing a lot of testing. We have a full line of products and are coming up with new stuff all the time.
Don’t buy a copy of one of our products when you can buy the best, choose XTracGear for a tried and true product. We’ve worked hard to bring the best for you!
