The Fully Assembled version includes:
- The keyboard PCB, the case, and the steel plate.
- Keycaps (included Mac & Windows keycaps).
The Barebone version does not include the keycaps and switches.
No discount codes can be used for the Q1.
Gateron Phantom Yellow & Silver Switch version uses the double-shot ABS keycaps and aluminum plate.
The Q1 is a revolutionary all-metal keyboard with customizable capabilities for every switch, keycap, stabilizer, knob, and even the plate. It’s designed for a personalized experience and premium typing comfort.
The sculpting of a piece of art.
This keyboard is not just a tool, but a piece of art on your desk. The Q1 is created with a 6063 aluminum CNC machined body, polished, anodized and sandblasted finish, and twenty-four manufacturing processes.
You can assemble every part.
To build a fully customizable keyboard, we designed every component to be able to assemble easily. Therefore, you can customize and adjust each component as you wish.
PS: Changing the knob with a badge or key requires an additional PCB (sold separately).
Double Gasket Design is an industry innovative structure. In addition to the gaskets on the plates, we added silicone pads between the top and bottom cases. It significantly reduces the resonance between the metals, which in return, reduces the noise of the impacted metals. This Double-Gasket Structure allows the keyboard to maintain the flexibility of the gasket structure and make the overall typing sound better.
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 right out of the box, which makes the latency hardly noticeable even in competitive games.
*The special edition (Orange Yellow and Champagne Gold version) is equipped with MCU ATMEGA32U4.
Designed to enhance your creative workflow, the premium rotary encoder allows you to customize your favorite keys and macros through the innovative VIA software with ease.
You can easily customize the knob to your desired key or macro commands like zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, brush size, opacity, volume, selecting video clips or photos, or backlight hue.
Switch layouts between
macOS & Windows.
Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining the compatibility for Windows devices, the Q1 is one of the only few in the market that comes with a Mac multimedia key layout for Mac enthusiasts. With VIA, you can configure your keymap for both Mac and Windows devices.
OSA Profile Double-shot PBT Keycaps
For the new double-shot PBT keycaps, we built a new profile. It has a similar height to that of 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.
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 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 user installs Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on their keyboard.
Note: The Q1 V2's top case has sharper corners to make it much more compatible with third-party keycaps, such as MT3, SA, XDA, etc.
Pre-lubed Gateron G Pro Switch
Every detail counts when it comes to a premium typing experience. An optimized mold with more precise positioning and less wobbliness will certainly improve your fingertip feel. Pair that together with our revamped stabilizers and factory pre-lubed Gateron G Pro switches, a smooth travel experience is guaranteed.
Note: The Phantom switches have phantom light effects that allows the RGB backlight to have the switches' own case color.
We have the Q1 purple mounted with Keychron K Pro banana switches, offering a slightly different tactile typing feel to G Pro browns for your choice.
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 wobbly. The big keys’ (space bar, shift, enter, delete) typing experience is now more stable and smooth. The Keychron Q1 V2 also supports third-party stabilizers including Cherry or Durock.
Looking for ISO Layout?
The Q1 ISO collection comes with fully assembled keyboards with 🇬🇧UK, 🇩🇪German, 🇩🇰🇫🇮🇮🇸🇳🇴🇸🇪Nordic, 🇨🇭Swiss, 🇫🇷French, and 🇪🇸 Spanish layout, and the “Barebone ISO" option is suitable for all ISO countries (e.g.: 🇮🇹Italy, 🇵🇹Portuguese, 🇭🇺Hungary, etc.) to build their keyboard with keycaps in their preferred languages and switches.

The keyboard is great. All I had to do was install switches and keycaps and the keyboard was ready to go. The sound is incredible.
This board is amazing and sounds like God calling down to me from heaven when I type on it.
Thanks, keyboard is fantastic. I have just received it from you.
First purchased the Purple SE w KeyChron pro banana switches. They're great out of the box. Was a nice clackier sounding keyboard that would end up gifting to my nephew.
Bought another Q1 for myself, but got silver with the keychron hacker mint keycaps. i ordered some oil kings and did several dampening mods and stabs. i couldn't be more happy with this thocky like piece of technology.
There's great foam mods and electrical tape works well. The one thing I would recommend if you have old fingers like mine is finding a POM or some other type of plate to replace the stock steel plate.
Ordered a purple special edition, and it's wonderful. I had a Q6 already, so I had high expectations, and those expectations were surpassed. Awesome 75% with an incredible purple finish. I'm not a huge fan of the keycaps or switches that came with the board, but it's nice to have some extras in case I want to switch it up. If you have the time/budget, it's worth the time to (re)lube the stabilizers or replace them with durock v2 stabs. Also tempest tape mod works wonders on this board. I would recommend this to anyone with the budget for it. Also keychron, if you read these reviews, please release a Q0 purple and/or Q6 purple! The purple color is awesome!
