Set Sail on an Aquatic Adventure

Even for those of us who haven’t dedicated our lives to marine research, the ocean is an intriguing fixation. The deep, bottomless blues, the push and pull of the waves, the abundance of life (especially those damn jaguar sharks!): it can drive a man crazy if he’s not careful. Inspired by the ocean and the legendary explorers who help reveal it, GMK Belafonte is a quirky keycap set that takes place aboard an aging research vessel manned by a crew of misfits and surrounded by not-so-intelligent dolphins. Featuring aqua alphas, cyan modifiers, and mustard, crimson, and white accents, it’s the perfect set for aquatic adventure.

Note: At checkout, add the matching Belafonte Custom Coiled Aviator Cable (+ $71). Looking for GMK Belafonte’s companion set, GMK Hennessey? Click here.

Durable Doubleshot ABS Construction

Made with ABS plastic with a semi-matte finish, the keycaps are doubleshot injected, which means the legends won’t fade over time. They’re also sculpted in German-designed Cherry profile, known for its comfortable feel for programmers, writers, and more. As far as compatibility, the keycaps will fit on Cherry MX stems and related clones.

Anchor Your Keyboard With a Matching Belafonte Cable

Made in collaboration with MiTo and Space Cables, the Belafonte Custom Coiled Aviator Cable is the perfect match to our cinematic, seafaring keycap set, GMK Belafonte. Made in the bright and vivid Belafonte colorway, it's a  playful finishing touch to any desktop setup. Even if aquatic adventures aren’t your thing, this cable's quality is undeniable. Crafted with double-shielded, USB 2.0-compliant, 28-gauge, 4-conductor PVC wire that’s sleeved in 550 paracord, it's built for the long haul.
