A Better Keyboard Built Around You
Sized for efficiency, our 67-key ALT keyboard wastes no space. Fully-featured at just over a foot in length, it's the perfect compact companion.
Streamlined Aluminum Build
Heavy enough to stay put no matter how hard you type, the ALT features a solid aluminum frame with a low profile for a streamlined look that complements any setup.
RGB Backlighting
Bring a colorful lightshow straight to your fingertips with customizable RGB backlighting and shine-through PBT keycaps.
Shine-Through PBT Keycaps
Known for their durability, PBT keycaps are built for the long haul—and because the legends are shine-through, not printed, they never fade.
Removable Magnetic Feet
Type at an ergonomic angle or lay your keyboard flat. Fitted with removable magnetic feet, the ALT seamlessly adjusts to fit your needs.
Elevate Your Typing Experience
Like the satisfying pop of bubble wrap, or the crisp flick of a light switch, mechanical switches deliver a satisfying feel you'll notice immediately.
Find Your Type
Each keyboard comes with your choice of switches, so you can get just the feel you like—whether you prefer something heavy and tactile, or lightweight and linear.
Tactile Halo Switches
Choose our Halo True or Halo Clear switches for that distinct "mechanical" feel. From the tactile bump of each press to the satisfying sound of the actuation, each keypress will keep you coming back for more.
Smooth Silver Switches
Choose Silver switches for a silky smooth keypress from start to finish. They're great for gamers who need to press keys quickly in succession, or people in a quiet office setting.
Classic Cherry Switches
Already have a favorite Cherry MX mechanical switch? We have you covered. The ALT is available with classic Cherry Blue or Brown switches.
Your Keyboard, Your Way
From backlighting and key commands to switches and keycaps, our mechanical keyboards offer customizable options for today's tasks and trends. Fine-tune yours as much (or as little) as you want.
Silver & Black Case Colorways
Set the stage for your keycaps. Choose from the sleek silver aluminum case or the stealthy black aluminum case to suit your style.
Keycap Sets & Artisans
Customization starts at your keycaps. Choose a specially themed set, or swap out a single key with something from our vast collection of artisans—the possibilities are endless.
Hot-Swappable Switches
Ready to switch up your switches? Thanks to the ALT’s hot-swappable PCBA, you can swap in new switches on the fly—no soldering required.
Customizable LED Lighting
Keep the lights off, dial in one of our presets, or customize each key color for a spectacular light show. Our keyboard case features a built-in diffuser to spread light evenly across the board.
Program With QMK Firmware
Programming our keyboards is easy with QMK firmware. Whether you’re creating macros or altering the keymap, use our online configurator to fine-tune your board for gaming, work, or play.
