Kira Stealth Full Metal Upgrade Case
Brought to you by Heavy Shell, the Kira Stealth metal case is a powerful, subtle upgrade to the underglow-oriented Kira. Its hefty frame provides serious stability — this keyboard won't budge once it's on your desk.
Assembled Weight: 2.366 kg
You must have an original Kira to use this case as intended. The Kira Stealth metal upgrade case is compatible with the original Kira PCB, its switches, and its keycaps. The lower case, plate, and upper (modular) frame from the original Kira are not compatible with the metal upgrade case.
Shadowy keycaps (not included — available here) are optional. They'll keep your RGB lighting tamed, but not constrained, allowing your modified keyboard to shine in all the right ways.
Note: This is a group buy. It is currently in the manufacturing phase! Please view the Weekly Update page to stay informed.
