The ultra-portable Hexgears X-1 is engineered with German precision and steeped in American innovation. Its adventure oriented design is inspired by the world’s first supersonic aircraft — the legendary Bell X-1. This mechanical keyboard has proven itself in harsh field conditions (like Antarctica, see photos); it will excel anywhere, any time.

upgraded new version

The original X-1 revolutionized on-the-go input. We doubled down to further improve your experience. Important firmware tweaks and a larger battery — with 2.4 times the X-1's original capacity — were implemented based on user feedback. Its multi-device Bluetooth connectivity, sleek aluminum case, and cutting edge per-key RGB lighting have been optimized as well.

performance on the go

Everyone, including gamers and creatives, can benefit from the X-1's extreme performance. Mechanical Kaihua "Choc" switches provide direct size, comfort, and press time advantages when compared with larger models. In addition, USB Type C connectivity enables NKRO and speedy charging.

This is the sort of input device that your gear deserves. It's the keyboard that companies like Apple and Microsoft should be making... but better.
