Midway60 — Bolsa Supply

60% O-ring Sandwich Mount Keyboard designed for Bolsa Supply — Felix Jen

Released on July 23, 2021


Bolsa Supply Midway60

The Midway60 is the first board designed in house by Bolsa Supply. The goal Midway60 aims to achieve is extremely simple: to look, sound, and feel good. Midway60 is essentially a combination of features and aspects that we as keyboard enthusiasts like in keyboards. 60% layout, flex, and o-ring sandwich gasket because of the sound signature that it provides. Special thanks to case design, N.Rdy.

The name convention is not related to keyboards, but holds meaning to us and Bolsa as a brand. Being deeply rooted here in Westminster CA, there is a city named Midway City in which Bolsa Avenue (where the brand name comes from) is the main street.

The PCB features a unique gold-plated wrap-around edge adding to the aesthetics of the board as well as allowing the edge to feel extremely smooth to the touch. The electrically isolated gold plating further provides a layer of resistance against ESD strikes during assembly and usage.
