X Marks The Switch

The Holy Panda experience has evolved. Introducing the Holy Panda X: the next iteration of tactile typing, optimized for an authentic feel with unrivaled consistency. Departing from the original Holy Panda production process (disassembling two switches and combining their parts), we worked closely with Gateron and a few familiar faces to recreate the Holy Panda experience through a fully engineered product. With carefully selected components, the Holy Panda X feels incredibly similar to its predecessor, but with greatly reduced stem wobble and improved consistency across the board. Among tactile offerings, it’s nothing short of a treasure—and you can only find it here. X marks the switch.

Note: Choose a 35-pack of 5-pin or 3-pin switches. 3-pin switches are compatible with Drop CTRL, ALT, and SHIFT Keyboards. 5-pin switches are most commonly used on PCB mount keyboards.

Design Intervention

A fan-favorite found on many keyboards, the original Holy Panda switch was community-created by combining housings from the Invyr Panda Linear Switch and the stem of our Drop Halo Switch. The result was an ultra-satisfying tactile feel with a truly unique sound, but the invention was not without flaws. Disassembling two different switches and combining them can lead to a number of consistency issues, especially when the parts aren’t fully designed to work together. From this original “Frankenswitch,” dozens of unofficial Panda-variants have been created trying to replicate or improve upon the Holy Panda’s signature. We took our time to get the build just right. We collaborated with the Holy Panda’s original creators to help us refine the typing experience. Finally, we teamed up with a trusted manufacturer, Gateron, to make our designs come to life.

Holier-Than-Thou Performance

The Holy Panda X is fully engineered from start to finish. Taking our time to faithfully replicate the Holy Panda feel, we outfitted this smoky-colored successor with a polycarbonate top case, nylon bottom case, and POM stem. Manufactured by Gateron with exacting quality assurance processes, the Holy Panda X easily outstrips its predecessor with improved stem stability, lubrication reliability, and overall consistency. Meet your next tactile switch.

The Holy Panda X improves upon all of the things I loved about the original. The smoother, rounder, and more refined tactility lends itself to a much more modern day typing experience that I personally prefer over the original. They're honestly just better.” -Quakemz

“Cutting back on the harshness of the Holy Panda yet still retaining the majority of the desirable traits, The Holy Panda X is a distinctly unique yet familiar switch. The switch features negligible stem wobble, a smooth downstroke, and of course, pronounced tactility. I will definitely be using these in my next daily keyboard!.” -Invyr

“A step forward from what made the original switch so fantastic, the Holy Panda X improves on every aspect, with the smoothness, tactility, and solid build construction that I've always been looking for. I'm done searching for my perfect switch." -mech27
