Drop Black Coiled Keyboard Cable

ENTR The Mechtropolis

Turn back the clock a century, and you’ll find an era roaring with excess and explosion. Filled with factories, polarized by prosperity and poverty, it was a time where dystopia could masquerade as utopia—a dissonance explored in the iconic 1927 sci-fi film Metropolis. In our latest Expression Series installment, we’ve turned this dissonance into a desktop essential that delivers exceptional typing with striking aesthetic duality. Meet Mechtropolis. Built on a stark black ENTR case—and accented with pad-printed, art-deco-inspired gold case artwork by Sakshi Mangal—this is one keyboard that brilliantly balances darkness and light. That balance is echoed in the Black Skylight Series Keycaps, which feature shine-through legends to highlight elegant white backlighting. Inside, Drop Phantom stabilizers pair with Gateron Yellow KS3 Switches to deliver excellent linear action with next to no noise. Further into the center, an ENTR PCBA provides a truly enthusiast experience with steadfast reliability—the Heart Machine of Mechtropolis. It’s opulence, backed by performance. Your desk deserves nothing less.

Our Expression: Streamlined Enthusiast Performance

There’s nothing like the feel of an enthusiast-level mechanical keyboard. Every desk deserves one—but not everybody has the time to source components and build one. That’s where our Expression Series comes in. As the most accessible line in our Icon Collection, the Expression Series is the place to find pre-built keyboards with enthusiast-level quality. Each one is outfitted with a host of excellent components and quality-controlled assembly for peerless performance. In the Mechtropolis Keyboard, dark and light elements play off each other on a black aluminum ENTR case with striking gold artwork inspired by Roaring ‘20s architecture and design. That same interplay happens on our Black Skylight Series Keycap Set, which features shine-through legends to highlight the board’s elegant whitebackling. In the inner workings of Mechtropolis, an ENTR PCBA delivers ultra-reliable hardware responsiveness, while Phantom Stabilizers and Gateron Yellow KS3 Switches combine to create a smooth, near-silent linear typing feel. Treat your fingertips to 2020s’ engineering, with a touch of 1920s’ style.
