Based on the profile from the iconic IBM® beamspring terminals of the 1970s, this custom set is fully sculpted from dye-sublimated PBT in Hi-Profile. What's Hi-Profile, you ask? Many computer terminals of old were constructed with a slanted switch layout from front to back. Because of that slant, the keycaps sat at an angle atop the switches, too. This set is a reimagination of that unique slanted build, but optimized for modern keyboards. Thanks to some significant design work from Matt3o, 3D modeling, and a whole lot of elbow grease, we're proud to bring these innovative caps back for a second run. Here, we’re offering kits specifically for our CTRL, ALT, SHIFT, Preonic, and Planck keyboards—or other, similar boards, if they’re compatible.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of the TKL kit (base price), 65% kit (- $10), Ortho kit (- $15), or 1800 kit (+ $5). See below for more details on each kit. For your early support, these kits will be available at this limited-time preorder price—until they go into our store at a higher price, after they’ve been produced.
Made from PBT plastic—long considered the superior keycap material—this MX-compatible set is both long lasting and resistant to the shine that occurs after long hours of typing. The legends are dye-sublimated so they won’t fade over the long haul. As for the layout, the set comes with an angled bottom row for a comfy feel. The colorway is a combination of neutral grays and colorful accents for a subtle look on your favorite board.
