TKL with multi-layout hotswap PCB — Felix Jen
Released on August 15, 2021
A seamless aluminum enclosure featuring no branding, thin side bezels, and an optional winkeyless top case for a vintage aesthetic — fit to be the centerpiece of any workspace. And the centered USB-C daughterboard provides a symmetrical cable setup with quick and inexpensive repairs. Scarlet allows you to customize the way it feels and sounds by offering the two most popular mounting styles — top mount and gasket mount. It delivers a soft and comfortable typing experience, making the keyboard fade into the background so you can focus on creating your best work.
Designing a quick, simple, and beginner-friendly assembly process was made possible with kailh hotswap sockets without compromising on layout compatibility. One PCB supports both 6.25u and 7u spacebar, and double flex-slots provide a soft and cushioned typing experience when paired with a half-plate. All PCBs come with VIA Configurator compatible firmware installed out of the box.
The PCB supports both QMK and VIA by default.
