Drop CSTM80 Decorative Case

A New Custom Keyboard Experience

To get to the endgame, sometimes you have to change the game. Where customization meets innovation, where performance meets elegance, and where community meets ingenuity—we’ve created a keyboard like no other. Introducing the CSTM80: an enthusiast desktop centerpiece that’s doing customization differently. How? For starters, with a never-before-seen component, purpose-built for personalization. We’re calling it the decorative top case, and it fits magnetically—and seamlessly—onto the CSTM80’s specially designed polycarbonate case. It’s a breakthrough in the world of keyboard modifications, and we’ll be rolling it out in more than a few styles to match community-favorite keycap sets, colorways, and more. At launch, we’re also supporting the CSTM80 with a host of additional add-ons—including several keyboard weights and switch plates—to tailor your typing experience even further. Combine it all with a top-tier spec sheet, and you have a custom keyboard ready to take center stage on any desk.

Designed to Refine—& Redefine

Understated, sophisticated, and armed with at least one trick up it's sleeve, the CSTM80 is the culmination of modern keyboard design, with a little disruption thrown in for good measure. That’s courtesy of the decorative top case—and while it’s certainly a disruptor in the keyboard space, it’s anything but disruptive on your desk. It attaches easily, securely, and inconspicuously; and it’s available now in several styles (and two materials), with many more to come. Around the top case, we designed CSTM80 with a refined aesthetic that’s both minimalist and classic. To this end, we choose the ever-popular tenkeyless layout, adding an extra F13 key for extra functionality and accent key real estate. We also opted for sleek ABS keycaps with front-facing, laser-etched shine-through legends to complement the community-requested south facing per-key RGB lights. Creating your custom lighting experience—and well as your macros—is both intuitive and in-depth, thanks to an STM32 chipset with QMK, VIA and Vial support.

Uncompromising Typing, From Top to Bottom

The CSTM80 isn’t all looks and electronics. Under the hood—or rather, the top case—you’ll find a host of components designed to deliver an uncompromising typing feel. At its core, that feel starts with the polycarbonate inner case, specially crafted to securely hold the decorative top case and deliver just the right amount of flex for your typing. Inside this case, we’ve added in a custom gasket-mounted system with easily replaceable gasket pegs so you can easily switch pegs when changing plates. We’ve also installed a full array of foam—including PORON plate foam and case foam, IXPE switch foam, and a special silicone patch that fits out the bottom case and acts as a bottom gasket for the keyboard. Throw in the hot-swappable PCBA with south-facing LEDs for an enthusiast-preferred feel—plus a flexible polycarbonate plate and solid aluminum case weight—and you’ve got an exceptional typing experience, with plenty of room for customization. Check out our selection of interchangeable CSTM80 plates and case weights to get yours just right.

Is a 100% version on the roadmap? Gotta have my numpad and having a separate numpad just doesn't work for me.
