Even since the original KAT Walk, KATVR have been focused on making their VR treadmill unrestrictive. With the newer KAT Walk C2, the company maintains the same focus and made it better than the original.

Users still walk in place on a low-friction parabola and wear special low-friction shoes. But unlike the old shoes the new ones now have adjustable friction to suit the users preference. They've also made movement a lot more accurate with imperceptible latency and equal speed. In order words, you move exactly when you want to in the virtual world, exactly at the same speed, and be exactly where you want to be.

A flexible waist harness and four layers of protective belts provides safety and stability while you run, walk, lean forward, sneak, jump, dance, go prone and more. There's also a built-in seat for situations in the virtual world where sitting is involved. The seat retracts automatically when you stand up.

The C2+ has an integrated haptic feedback system to allow the user to feel physical interaction with the virtual environment. For example, when there' s an explosion you will feel the impact through the KAT Walk C2 haptic system. You can even feel the ground under your feet as you move through the terrain in the virtual world.

Compatible with  Valve Index, Oculus Rift, Oculus Rift-S, HTC VIVE, HTC VIVE Pro, Windows Mixed Reality Headsets, PSVR, and Pimax. To use it with Oculus Quest and Quest 2 requires Airlink and Virtual Desktop. All Steam VR titles and all Oculus Home PC VR exclusives are compatible with C2. PlayStation VR games that support free locomotion like Resident Evil 7 work with the C2 with a special PSVR 1 adaptor.

Two Versions KAT Walk C2 and C2+

The price difference between the C2+ and C2 is about $200 (during the preorder period). For the extra $200, the C2+ provides haptic feedback, a sitting posture module, and the VR vehicle hub. We think the upgrade to the C2+ version is worth it unless you don't want haptic feedback and don't want to sit down during VR games.
