A Keyboard That Puts You in Control

To put it simply, the CTRL mechanical keyboard has it all. Constructed with a solid aluminum frame with a built-in switch plate, it’s stable and fortified. And thanks to the hot-swap switch sockets, it allows you to change switches whenever you want with no soldering required. It’s also fully programmable via QMK, meaning you can assign macros or custom keybinds to every key. With dual USB-C connectors, the CTRL is outfitted with the fastest available connections. Aesthetically, the keyboard is equally impressive. Featuring customizable RGB backlighting and underlighting, it puts on a colorful show; or you can set it to a single color for a more subtle look. The shine-through PBT keycaps only enhance the performance. What’s more, the keyboard comes with your choice of switches, so you can get just the feel you like—whether you prefer something heavy and tactile or lightweight and linear.

Note: This item is in stock and will ship within 1 business day with standard shipping. Your payment method will be charged 2 hours after joining. Cancellations are accepted until that time.

At checkout, you’ll have your choice of Cherry MX,  Kaihua, and Halo switches. Pricing will vary depending on your selection.

Optimized Per-Key Lighting With Millions of Colors

The switches on the CTRL feature light pipes that are optimized to deliver the most light possible through the keycaps. No matter what tone you want, you’ll have your choice from millions of colors for every single key. Feel free to program the lighting to cycle through the entire spectrum, or set it to a two-toned look to match your setup. There’s also a built-in translucent LED diffuser to minimize hotspots found in many other keyboards. Worried about flickering? Don’t be. The LEDs operate at a frequency of 100 Hz, so there won't be any visible flicker.

Fully Programmable Via QMK

Customizing your keyboard is a lot of fun. That’s why the CTRL features a fully programmable layout, designed for modification. Using QMK firmware, you have total control over every key. Plus, the configurator allows you to program macros and customized keymapping, so you can easily fine-tune your keyboard for gaming, work, or play. It’s also outfitted with two USB type-C connectors (one on each side), allowing you to transfer data and charge devices at USB 2.0 speeds.

Hefty Aluminum Frame & Hot-Swappable Switches

Known for its toughness and ability to hold a quality surface finish, anodized aluminum plays the starring role in the CTRL’s frame. Heavy enough to stay put when you're cranking out an email or locked into an intense FPS match, the frame also has a low profile to complement your desktop. Thanks to the built-in switch plate and hot-swappable PCB, the CTRL gives you the freedom to change out your switches whenever you like. Best of all? You don’t need to solder each switch. Just pop them in and they’re ready to go. Fitted with removable feet, the keyboard can be adjusted for height, too.

Shine-Through Doubleshot PBT Keycaps

To make the CTRL really pop off your desktop, it comes with shine-through PBT keycaps. Long a staple in the keyboard community, PBT keycaps help resist the shine that occurs from oils and sweat on the fingers. In addition, PBT is super durable and long-lasting—and because the legends are shine-through, they won’t rub off over time.
