09/23 Angle update:
1. Base on the result from first round of GB, Vertex is confident to make Angle an UNLIMITED Group buy.
2. We are looking at around late Oct or early Nov for international GB, because Vertex team will need to finalize some of the feature requests from you guys and GB options (these need to be sampled too).
3. Orders from first round of GB are being packaged and fulfilled. Sample units to content creators will be send out soon too.

So.. There are some rumblings on the discord that one of the feature requests includes changing this board to an F13 layout. I posted there, but wanted to post here too for more visibility. I really hope this is not the case, or that if it is, it is offered in addition to F12. I'm not a fan of F13 aesthetics and barely any of my sets are actually compatible with it. One of the reasons I am interested in this board is because it is F12 when I feel like a lot of TKLs coming out now are F13. I suspect there are others besides me who would also prefer to keep this F12. I'm not going to ask you to not offer F13 if it was indeed highly requested. This is your project after all. But please consider offering both layouts if possible.

Hi Ensaum,

You will have the option to opt out F13.

No worries!

Angle International GB will be starting around begining of December instead of Nov. Sorry about the delay! This delay was because new international GB options and optimizations need to be sampled and validated (base on feedbacks from Chinese GB and International IC). This sample making process is affected by the power shortage across China.

Just found this board today and whoa, what a stunning design.  The work you put in shows and I love the subtle softness of the angles and curves.  The mounting looks innovative and fresh too!  And I especially love that one of your colors is called Fog.  I'll be following!

I also find that slogan a little cringy  :), but it is internal. So, why would you worry about something you won't see.

Because I know it’s there. I guess the engraving on the cloudline was pointless if thats what your saying. If I’m paying $500+ for a board, I want to love the whole aspect of the board.

Hi there, new changes in Angle international GB:
1. Mid layer: Silicon Pad will no longer be required. Instead PORON pad will be offered as an optional part. “Silicon Corner Pieces” will be provided as individual parts.
2. Daughter Board: Angle International GB will replace its own design with ai03’s Unified-Daughterboard.
3. Plates: In addition to ALU, plate using new materials will be provided. Vertex is experimenting with FR4, steel, PC and POM.
4. Vertex is working on optimizing typing sound of Angle.

In the meantime, thank you so much for putting together the build stream for Angle, @alexotos  @Blacksimon! For those of you who is interested watching their build recording, you can find Alex's at: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1185821494 and Blacksimon's at: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1187493196

In addition to this, we also sent first GB version Angle to: Taekeyboards, LightningXI, MechMerlin, :3ildcat and Hamaji.

You may also be interested to watch review of the actual international GB version from Taeha Type and Andy.

Stay tuned!

it's tacky, akin to "See the rainbow. Taste the rainbow." I can't help but think of Skittles when I read that slogan. lol

I have to agree. The board is so beautiful and classy. It's a shame that it has that tacky element to it. It's something I would expect to see on a $30 board on Amazon or AliExpress.  :mad:

Hi guys,

Learnt from Vertex today that there is a COVID-19 outbreak in the city where Vertex office is located. Entire city went into lockdown. They told us that their local authority may stop all logistics in the city at any time. This will add delay for Vertex to get prototypes and test them (which was originally planned for next week). They are not sure whether DHL will be able to pick up packages in that area next week, which means Taeha and Andy's reviews will be delayed too.

We will keep you posted about any updates. Thank you for your patient!

Is there really no option for split backspace?

I know on TKL's it's not as common as other layouts, but I still wish there was the option especially on a solder PCB.
Quite a lot of people use it.

The Fog color is awesome  :thumb:

Covid-19 lockdown has eased. Vertex team is free now 😆 . They just received the international version prototypes. Next step will be testing and taking product photos for GB. Protos for rest of reviewers will be shipped out and we will know when we can start GB right after. A spoiler: the typing sound has been adjusted.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know if there is any difference in sound between brass and sus weights since there will be the option for both? I would assume that if there is any difference, brass would sound a bit deeper kind of like how plates work?
