Lichicx is a relatively new manufacturer, but they have proven themselves to be one of the most trustworthy factories that can steadily produce high-quality products. Today, let's take a look at another great linear switch which was designed by Suixin Studio and manufactured by Lichicx. Allow me to introduce to you the Yalasuo linear switch!

Lichicx and Yalasuo Switch


If you are a switch addict (like me), and you have been following the switch market trend for some time now, you would have noticed that most of the Lichicx switches in the market are silent linear switches. A few memorable examples include the XCJZ Lucy switches, Hape switches, and gentle switches. There is one common thing about these switches is that they all have a trichromatic dust-proof stem and a wing-latch top housing. This is usually the stereotypical Lichicx switch that most people would think of when they remember Lichicx. However, this time Lichicx is showing us something different than usual.

What we see right here is a regular linear switch with an MX-style stem and a 4-pin top housing. To produce high-quality MX-style linear switches, Lichicx created this new set of molds and went through multiple rounds of adjustment to make them precise enough. MX-style switches are not uncommon, but how about MX-style switches that have minimal stem wobble and unwanted noises while still being super smooth regardless of the materials being used? Also, Yalasuo switches are manufactured using the 4-point injection molding technique; This means that each set of mold only produces 4 switch components. This technique drastically increases production costs and lowers production speed, but it makes sure that each switch component is precise and up to a very high standard. Lichicx was trying to make everything as accurate as possible to create an ultimate typing experience.

Materials:

The materials used on the Yalasuo switches are pretty standard. Suixin Studio decided to add some fiberglass to the PA66 bottom housing, and the reason is that it refines the sound of bottoming out while not affecting the smoothness of the keystroke. Thanks to the accurate molding, the POM stem does not feel or sound scratchy, and the bottom-out feedback is very clear.

Hi there, we are still accepting orders now. We ship switches to Clackbait all the time, and he lives in TX. His last package took 5 days to be delivered.
