Hexgears X-1 Wireless Low Profile Mechanical Keyboard


Note: This is a pre-order for incoming stock. X-1s are currently expected to arrive in late June or July. Join this Waitlist for a restock notification.

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.

The X-1 revolutionizes on-the-go input. It combines multi-device Bluetooth capabilities, a sleek aluminum case, and cutting edge per-key RGB lighting technology to launch a completely new class of keyboard.

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, lighting-fast USB Type C connectivity enables NKRO and speedy charging.

This is, without a doubt, the sort of input device that your gear deserves. It's the keyboard that companies like Apple and Microsoft should be making... but better.
