Hexgears Nova - Metal RGB Mechanical Keyboard
Get metal, and don’t settle for less. The tenkeyless Nova Mechanical Keyboard packs a CNC machined aluminum chassis and stunning RGB lighting at a budget-friendly price point. It’s a luxurious, high performance gaming keyboard for everyone.
stylish and durable
The Hexgears Nova uses CNC machined anodized aluminum for its upper and lower case — a huge improvement over big-brand offerings that use cheap ABS plastic for lower shells. The Nova’s consistent, pleasant finish and serious heft anchor it on your desk. Flex and creak, which affect keyboards with cheap materials, are nonexistent. Our designers also took care to use a refined font for the Nova’s letters, avoiding the edgy gamerfont that plagues so many keycaps. Other affordable keyboards simply can’t match the Nova’s unique aesthetic and remarkable build quality.
miniature keyboard benefits
Most gamers and typists don’t need a number pad / tenkey on the right hand side of the keyboard (check out the full size Supernova if you do). Small keyboards are quite popular due to their portability, which shines at tournaments and old-school LAN parties. Small keyboards also allow for better desk layouts — your mouse hand isn’t pushed way off to the side.
dynamic rgb lighting
The Nova is inspired by flagship design cues in the mechanical keyboard industry. It contains the first truly affordable, yet buttery smooth, RGB ring lighting implementation in a metal mechanical keyboard. Numerous per-key backlighting modes and shine through keycaps, which respond to onboard function layer controls, help the Nova match your battlestation. Hexgears’ engineers designed the ring light and keycaps to look good at all times — they’re subtly cool even when the backlighting is off.
mechanical kailh box switches
Kailh Box switches are rated for 80 million presses — significantly above the industry standard. They come equipped with drainage ports and self-cleaning assemblies to ensure long lifetimes. Box switches also feel excellent, as they’re less wobbly and noticeably smoother than standard models. Tactile Box switches result in quiet mechanical keyboards when compared with competing designs, but the clicky versions go all out.
Clicky Box switches use a revolutionary click mechanism, the click bar, to create their signature noise. Click bars provide a cleaner click than Cherry MX-style mechanisms, which tend to rattle. They also have a nicer tactile response — see this guide to learn more.
The Nova is designed to be a plug and play device. Its feature set offers exactly what you need to get up and running fast. Angle adjustment feet help match your preferences. In addition, basic onboard functions like Windows key locking enhance your gaming experience.
