To truly understand the benefits of a mechanical keyboard, you have to feel it. The first thing you’ll notice about the Space Race is its heft. As opposed to plastic keyboards that rattle as you type, the Space Race features a nearly 3-pound aluminum case for maximum stability with each keystroke (it won’t budge unless you want it to). In addition to its substantial build, we chose some of the most desirable mechanical switches of all time. Known as Holy Pandas, they offer a snappy tactile “bump” that gracefully springs your fingers to the next key. If you ever want to change the feel, you can simply pop in new switches, thanks to the hot-swappable circuit board. Plus, the Space Race has backlighting covered with an array of RGB light settings, and it’s backed by the latest USB-C connections to seamlessly plug in on either side of your setup.
