2019 has been an awesome year for us here at MAINGEAR so far.

We started the year with our biggest CES ever, launching a MAINGEAR exclusive, industry-first RGB solution for liquid cooling called APEX SPECTRUM.

In March, we launched the first of our new desktops, the VYBE enthusiast platform. With the VYBE, we took a new approach, offering an entire ecosystem around one of our most popular products. The VYBE is available with our standard custom cooling options making it the most affordable way to get a truly custom liquid cooled MAINGEAR PC. In addition, we also introduced new enthusiast pre-configured systems, which are, by far, the easiest and most affordable way to get a new MAINGEAR PC we’ve ever offered. To complete the ecosystem, the VYBE is also available as a DIY chassis with our APEX cooling block. Available through our website and Micro Center, this opens up MAINGEAR to the massive DIY PC building enthusiast community who love our products but prefer to build their own rigs. And not to brag, but in the first half of the year our VYBE won several editor’s choice awards – from Maximum PC, PC Magazine, Hot Hardware, and Tom’s Guide.

Since then, we’ve been quiet – keeping our heads down, hard at work on the exciting news we’re finally able to share with you today.

First, welcome to the new MAINGEAR.

Launching today the new MAINGEAR.com offers a totally new shopping and community experience for our customers and fans. The new website incorporates all new branding, and a dramatically updated new look that’s gorgeous, it’s now easier than ever to buy your new MAINGEAR PC. Aside from the new looks, the new MAINGEAR.com offers an expanded store. In addition to the PCs you know and love, we’re now offering apparel, backpacks, accessories, swag, and more to come in the future. The new MAINGEAR.com also features new community aspects (like alerts when we go live on Twitch, Mixer, etc), and a new blog where we’ll be sharing company news, product announcements, technical articles, and how-to’s.


Next up, we’re excited to announce the launch of our new notebook that was designed in collaboration with Intel, the ELEMENT. The all-new ELEMENT fuses MAINGEAR’s passion for design and performance into a truly modern gaming notebook with a thin, minimalist profile that doesn’t compromise on raw power. The ELEMENT is optimized for the most demanding gamers and content creators, pairing a 9th Gen Intel i7-9750H processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 2070 Max-Q GPU to hit peak performance in today’s most demanding games. An ultra-smooth 144hz 15.6” IPS display with a narrow bezel delivers an incredibly immersive gaming experience. Top all of that off with an RGB keyboard with individually-lit silent mechanical switches and a real glass touchpad. The Launch Edition of the Element is limited to 50 units, and comes with either 16GB RAM and a 1TB NVMe SSD for $2199, or 32GB of RAM and a 2TB NVMe SSD for $2399. Both versions of the ELEMENT Launch Edition include a hardshell travel case and a MAINGEAR Classic Backpack, and are available now on MAINGEAR.com

The MAINGEAR Classic Backpack

Yes, I said backpack. FINALLY. We’re also launching one of our most requested products ever, the MAINGEAR Classic Backpack. We set out to design a tech-focused backpack with classic styling that you can proudly wear in any setting. The Classic Backpack has pockets for all your tech – and we mean ALL your tech – with dedicated compartments for a 15” laptop, a tablet, a portable gaming console, notebooks, pens, sunglasses, a battery pack, passport/ID, and even a super secret hidden pocket for a Tile Tracker. And yes, we include a Tile Tracker with every backpack. We made sure to go with the best materials available for a backpack, including 900D nylon, and YKK zippers, and it’s available in 3 colorways: Aspen (white with black trim), Nero (black with red trim), and Slate (grey with red trim). All three are available now for $99 on MAINGEAR.com.

There’s so much more to come, but we’ll leave some mystery for the coming months. This new website and these new products are the culmination of months of hard work by our entire team. We hope you love them as much as we loved making them.
