AMAZING!!

This is my first ever "custom" mechanical keyboard that I've ever owned. I've always wanted to dabble into building mechanical keyboards and I figured having a pre-built one would be a good start for getting into this hobby. The sound that this keyboard has out of box is simply amazing! I definitely am going to recommend this keyboard to friends and family!! The brown switches are legit!

excellent product

Keychron V1. Great customer service and communication - delivered quickly to far-off New Zealand in robust waterproof padded packaging. A solid, quality product that was easy to set up on Mac and is great to use. An impressive upgrade from the stock Mac Magic keyboard. My first mechanical keyboard and I'm hooked. Excellent product, excellent service, excellent value for money. Thanks!

An Epic Core Inside The Keyboard

A powerful ultra-low-power ARM architecture MCU equipped with 128K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers. The polling rate is 1000 Hz out of the box, which makes latency non-existent for the competitive game.

OSA Profile Double-shot PBT Keycaps

These double-shot PBT keycaps have a similar height to the OEM profile and has an SA-like shape. We named it the OSA (OEM spherical angled) keycap. The PBT keycaps will provide excellent oil resistance, enhance the type feel, and prevent the legends from fading out.

Switch Layouts Between macOS & Windows

Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, the Keychron V1 comes with a system toggle and an additional set of customized keycaps for both Windows and macOS systems. You can now save two different layouts on the keyboard, one for each system.

Program V1 with QMK & VIA

With full QMK and VIA support, you can easily program and remap each key on the keyboard. The open-source firmware means endless possibilities for keyboard layouts, shortcuts, backlight effects, even the knob, and more.

Get the V1 keymap working on VIA

Since the VIA code for the V1 is still awaiting approval from Github, it is not yet automatically recognized, so you will need to manually download and import the V1 keymap.

To get started, please follow the steps: Download the appropriate kemap JSON file below, open VIA, turn on "Show Design tab" on "Settings" tab, drag the JSON file into the “Design” tab on VIA to get the V1 keymap working on VIA.

Hot-swappable

The hot-swappable sockets are mounted on the PCB, so you can install or change the switches without soldering. The PCB supports both 3-pin and 5-pin MX mechanical switches.

South-facing RGB LED Lights

The south-facing RGB LED is designed to better illuminate the keyboard backlight from the typist’s angle with the premium non-shine-through PBT keycaps installed. The south-facing RGB is also free from interference when the users install OEM or Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on the keyboard.

Pre-lubed Keychron K Pro Switch

By optimizing the switch mold, the K Pro switch wobbles less than a standard mechanical switch and feels smoother on each hit. Plus, the factory pre-lubed process on all the K Pro switches (exclude the clicky ones), no doubt this will ensure the best smoothness at your fingertips when typing.

All New Screw-In PCB Stabilizers

The screw-in design increases stability and makes it easier for changes and upgrades. Precise craftsmanship makes the stabilizers more stable and less shaky.
