After our first successful voyage into the great beyond, we’re preparing the spacecraft for another mission. From MiTo (the creator of Canvas, PuLSE, and Overcast), the Godspeed Custom Keycap set features NASA’s iconic colorway from the original Apollo 11 lunar module cockpit—the first spaceflight in which man set foot on the moon. This time, however, the keycaps are done in uniform XDA profile so you can mix and match them with ease. We’ve made the ship stronger for our second trip, too: Instead of ABS, the keycaps are now crafted from durable shine-resistant PBT plastic to withstand the perils of outer space . . . and your desktop. Grab the Ares version for a Mars-inspired twist.
One small step for man. One giant leap for mech keys. Godspeed.

Note: To avoid confusion with the current checkout system, we will be changing the drop points manually for this drop. We are paying attention to the number of child kits being bought as well. If they reach certain quantities, we will adjust their prices accordingly. You may notice fluctuations in your checkout price as we make these adjustments on the back end, but you will not be charged more for anything.

The Alphas are essential to every MX mechanical keyboard and available in three different colors: warm beige, soft blue, and cool white. Number monolegends are included for a minimal look.
For the Apollo colorway, there’s both a regular legends kit and a novelty/iconography set to choose from. As for the Ares kits, novelty and iconography are also available. All Base Modifiers include extra 2u SHIFT, extra 2.25u SHIFT and a center stem CAPS LOCK in order to cover standard 60% layouts or tenkeyless keyboards including the XD60 and the Leopold Cherry MX models.
Covering both the standard/novelty versions of the Apollo colorway and the Ares novelty/iconography, these kits provide the necessary add-ons to cover the Vortex Core, non-standard 60%, tenkeyless, 96% and 100% keyboards. There are appropriate non-standard add-ons to complement different bottom rows and off-center CAPS LOCK mounts. The corresponding Base Modifiers kit and prefered Alphas must be included as well for complete coverage of a non-standard keyboard.
Since the Godspeed XDA interest check went live, this kit has been improved. In order to cover the majority of 40% keyboards (such as JD40, JD45, Minorca, MiniVan, Sebright, Quark, Mobik, MechMini, MechMini 2, and various others), get this kit and your preferred set of Alphas. The Cadet Base kit can virtually cover any 40% keyboard. For those who don’t mind novelty legends or prefer iconography references, the appropriate kits are available on both the Apollo and Ares colorways.
The Ortho Modifiers standalone kits will properly cover non-staggered keyboards such as the Planck and Preonic. The appropriate kits are available on both Apollo and Ares colorways, featuring regular legends, novelty legends, and the iconography convention. Like the 40s Modifiers and Ergo Modifiers, the Ortho Modifiers kits are standalone kits, which means they only require Alphas to completely cover a keyboard. No Base Modifiers are required. The 1u spacebars for the GRID layout are convex.
The Ergo Modifiers standalone kits will cover the ErgoDox and similar standard split keyboards. For non-standard split keyboards, you’ll need the appopriate Space Bars kit, too. Available on both colorways—together with boring, novelty and icon legends—the Ergo Modifiers kit only requires the desired Alphas to properly cover an ErgoDox. The 2u keycaps are all convex.
These add-ons are for fullsize keyboards such as Filco, Razer, Cooler Master, and Corsair, as well as standalone number pads. Along with the Alphas kit, they will cover a numpad.
These are appropriately colored ISO keycaps to complete the UK and Norde layouts.
The Solar Alphas, Lunar Alphas, and Supernova Alphas provide proper coverage for the United Kingdom, Nordic, German, and some European mechanical keyboard layouts.
This minimal add-on kit features punctuation symbols for a monolegend look. It’s available as a single kit covering the three Alphas variations.
These are deep dish homing/reference keycaps for both Dvorak/Colemak layouts. F and J are already included in all three Alphas kits.
These are appropriately colored F5-F8 keycaps to match both modifiers colorways for an alternate look.
These are appropriately colored accents matching both modifiers colorways for symmetry.
Ge the original Godspeed SA novelties look with this set, which features buttons like Panic, ROLL, PITCH, YAW, ABORT, MAL, and GODSPEED.
This kit features hand-designed astronaut novelty logos applied on color-coordinated keycaps as a tribute to the Apollo 11 crew.
Also designed by hand, these planetary, celestial bodies and space paraphernalia novelty logos are applied on color-coordinated keycaps as a tribute to the Solar System and NASA research. The set includes 13 keycaps, which is enough to completely cover the Esc + Function Row on 75%, tenkeyless, 96% and 100% keyboards, or enough to replace the entire Number Row on 60% keyboards. This kit can also be used as a whole set of modifiers on some mini keyboards like the Planck. The designs cover the nine planets that orbit the solar system, plus the sun, the moon, Halley’s Comet, and the Voyager I probe.
This set has color-coordinated 1u, 1.25u, 1.5u, 2u (convex), 1.75u, and 2.25u blanks to complete unorthodox layouts.
Depending on your keyboard layout, you may need extra spacebars—and it’s good to keep an extra on hand sometimes. This kit has what you need to match the colorways offered.
