[GB] Pizza65 R2 | The Made In Italy minimalistic 65% is back | Production

(1/6) > >>


Pizza is finally back! We launched the Pizza Keyboards project nearly 1 year ago with a very specific roadmap in mind, and the response has been amazing.

Our first mission was to offer fast shipping times with no compromise on the product quality, and we achieved it by partnering with local suppliers. Starting from this idea we developed a simple product that aimed at pragmaticism: a seamless, minimalistic top-mount style board with a great sound profile and lot of customization possibilities, thanks to the specifically designed PizzaPCB, supporting ANSI/ISO compatibility and extra broken-out GPIO pins.
We are now ready to launch again our Pizza65, improving our solid recipe to bring it at the next quality level!

The casing is now made of an upgraded, higher quality 6082 series aluminum and then hand-finished with a new sandblasting process. We are also collaborating with a new partner for better anodization: this results in a premium, grainy looking but smooth at touch surface finish. To match this rich texture we decided to add a new sandblasted option for our brass plate (both ANSI and ISO):

And we are also introducing a new clear-anodized Silver Ash colorway to celebrate this beautiful material and the great finish we achieved: this special edition will be exclusively available with our new brass option.

Along with the new improved Pizza65 R2 we are officially launching the most requested feature since our first release, the new hot-swap Slice65 PCB!

Available in ANSI and featuring the newly released 2nd Generation Kailh Hot-Swap sockets, the Slice65 maintains and improves the features of the original PizzaPCB.
 - HASL-Lead Free matte black finish
 - Extra GPIO Pins
 - STM32 F0 Microcontroller
 - QMK and VIA compatibility
 - Redesigned ESD protection
 - 6000 cycle hot-swap sockets by Kailh (vs the 100 cycle original 1st gen available in most PCBs)
*more pics coming soon*

A more limited batch of the original solderable PizzaPCB will be available during the GB.
PizzaPCB supports both ISO and ANSI, stepped capslock and split backspace.
