Keychron Q1 QMK/VIA Fully Assembled Custom Mechanical Keyboard
The Q1 is a revolutionary all-metal keyboard with customizable capabilities for every switches, keycaps, stabilizers, and even the plates. It’s designed for a personalized experience and premium typing comfort.
Master Any Keys or Macros with QMK/VIA – Compatibility with macOS, Windows and Linux
Simply connect the Q1 to your device with a cable, import the Q1 keymap JSON file into the VIA software, drag and drop your favorite keys or macro commands to remap any key you want on macOS, Windows, or Linux operating systems and save two different layouts on the keyboard, e.g.: create a macro command of a screenshot on macOS.
A brand new ultra-low-power Arm structure MCU which is powerful, and armed with 128K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers.
Full Aluminum 75% Layout Custom Mechanical Keyboard
The PCB socket of Q1 is compatible with almost all the MX style 3pin and 5pin mechanical switches on the market(including Cherry, Gateron, Kailh, Panda, etc.) without soldering required.
Type-C Wired Connection
A reliable USB Type-C wired connection with 1000 Hz polling rate and NKRO make sure you won’t miss a beat no matter cranking out emails or code.
Note: Please avoid connecting the Q1 with a laptop through a hub to ensure enough power supply. For the same reason, please turn off the keyboard backlight if the Q1 is connecting with a tablet.
Keychron Q1 Version 2 Highlights: QMK & VIA Support Hot-Swappable Sockets For macOS, Windows & Linux Double-Gasket Design Full Aluminum Body OSA Profile Double-shot PBT Keycaps Pre-lubed Gateron G Pro Brown Switch Pre-installed Screw-In PCB Stabilizers
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 shaky. The big keys’ (space bar, shift, enter, delete) typing experience is now more stable and smooth. The Q1 version 2 also supports third-party stabilizers, including Cherry or Durock.
Allows the Q1 keyboard to maintain the flexibility of the gasket structure and improves the overall typing sound. We added silicone pads between the top and bottom cases besides gaskets on the plates to significantly reduce the sound resonance between the metals and reduce the noise of the impacted metals.
OSA Profile Double-shot PBT Keycaps
Equipped the new double-shot PBT keycaps with OSA profile (OEM spherical angled) will provide excellent oil resistance, enhance the type feel, and prevent the legends from fading out. 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.
South-facing RGB LED Lights
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 with other OEM or Cherry-profile alternative keycaps.
All-Around Customizable Keyboard
To build a fully customizable keyboard, we designed every component easily assembled. Therefore, you can customize and adjust each component you want.
Body Material Full CNC machined aluminum Plate Material Steel Keycaps Double-shot keycaps, not shine-through MCU Ultra-low-power Arm Cortex-M4 32-bit STM32L432 (128KB Flash) Polling Rate 1000 Hz Stabilizers Screw-in PCB stabs Connectivity Type-C cable + Type-A to Type-C adapter Backlight South-facing RGB LED Switches Gateron G Pro Brown Switches Pre-installed Hot-swappable Support Compatible with most of the 3 pin & 5 pin MX style mechanical switches such as Gateron, Cherry MX and Kailh, etc. Weight 4.02 ± 0.02lb（1825 ± 10g） Dimension 12.89 * 5.7 * 1.41inches（327.5 * 145 * 35.8mm）
Program The Q1 with QMK & VIA: With the QMK/VIA support, you can intuitively remap your favorite keys and create macros with any key on any operating system (macOS, Windows, or Linux) for a fluid workflow. The open-source firmware means endless possibilities for keyboard layouts, shortcuts, backlight effects, and more.
Hot-swappable Gateron Pro Mechanical Switches: Pre-installed the pre-lubed Gateron G Pro mechanical brown switch providing unrivaled tactile responsiveness with up to 50 million keystroke lifespan. The hot-swappable sockets are mounted on the PCB and compatible with almost all the MX style 3pin and 5pin mechanical switches on the market (including Gateron, Cherry, Kailh, etc.), you can install or change the switches without soldering.
Double Gasket Design: In addition to the gaskets on the plates, we added silicone pads between the top and bottom cases to significantly reduce the sound resonance between the metals and reduce the noise of the impacted metals. This design allows the keyboard to maintain the flexibility of the gasket structure and improves the overall typing sound.
All New Screw-In PCB Stabilizers: The screw-in design increases stability and makes it easier for changes and upgrades. The big keys’ (space bar, shift, enter, delete) typing experience is now more stable and smooth. Note: The Keychron Q1 V2 also supports third-party stabilizers including Cherry or Durock.
