Our ALT High-Profile added some bulk to a small footprint and an undeniably solid foundation—and our new ALT High-Profile V2 added so much more. Now, we’re bringing you that bulky base, with all the V2 essentials you need to build your own compact high-profile dream board. Meet the ALT High-Profile V2 Barebones: the stripped-down, superlative follow-up to our space-saving flagship. Taking input from over five years of reviews, we made several key changes to this second-generation standout—including an upgraded PCBA with 5-pin switch support, a new STM32 chipset with better QMK performance, a range of RGB LED improvements, and an updated configurator for on-the-fly keymapping. On this barebones offering, you’ll also find an array of PORON foam and IXPE foam for a refined typing sound and feel, new to V2. Of course, we also kept the things our community loved—like the CNC-machined aluminum case and dual USB-C ports. It’s the streamlined, highly anticipated sequel, with all the greatest hits. It’s the ALT High-Profile V2 Barebones.
