Of course it's a wired board. How many full aluminum and brass custom boards are wireless? I'll answer that for you...Zero. Metal boards do not work with wireless technology.

This might sound like a silly request, but please make the gaskets black this time and allow us to purchase extras.

The board looks fantastic, I really want to try a 50% board. I'm currently waiting for a Lynx L50 by Wixxzblu but it's looking like it's simply never going to arrive :(

Love almost everything about this board.

I love the idea of base kit compatibility, but for me it's a means to an end, and that end is having accented escape and accented enter.

Unfortunately, this has a 1.5u escape, which means I can't get that accent combo.

If this board had a 1u esc with a 0.5u blocker next to it, I'd buy it at pretty much any price.

Use an ISO enter and you can get your accent

I'm just pushing the feature of it being able to have an ISO enter. But I do get the point. 1.5u ESC is scary. I know I don't have any thing that would fit there

How about tab? Everyone's got that. As a (neo)vim user, I remap caps lock to LCTL_T(KC_ESC) which makes this layout pretty great.

Can't think of a single keyset that doesn't come with a tab key...You know, the key that almost always goes in that position on 99% of keyboards

this is that one percent my dude.
im gonna take it as you being funny, but physical fit is not an issue.
but go find me a set that has a 1.5u R2 ESC.
it's fine if you don't.

This is NOT one of those circumstances. A tab key will fit absolutely fine in that position, regardless of the text/icon on it. The key will function the same no matter if the text is wrong.

That's nice you want it to be an esc key...Again, it doesn't matter what the cap is labeled as, it still functions as whatever you have it programmed to.

And are you serious about how do you use numbers? You do know that modern custom keyboards have programming that allow you to set layers/key combos/literally any key to anything you want. You can make any key on the keyboard into any number you want, you could replace every key with the number 1 if you wanted.

Maybe this board isn't for you.

I think you're having your leg pulled, mate, haha.

I don't mind not having legend compatibility, but I do like that pop of colour in the top left.

This might actually be a nice board for a gradient set. KAT Great Wave. Splishy splashy.

I guess I need this since the Lynx L50 seems dead!

Would be amazing if it supported an HHKB/Tsangan bottom row too though

If this is an equinox XL 


Then what exactly is the normal equinox size ?
