Helix Keyboard Kit
$30.00 - $35.00
Did you resolve to spend more time with your soldering iron in 2020?
If so, you are in luck :)
We have sourced for you a (very nearly) complete kit to build your very own Helix split keyboard.
The PCB accepts both MX switches and Kailh's new low profile 1350 (Choc) switches.
We have sourced custom laser-cut cases (clear), PCBs, OLED screens, and TRRS, in addition to our normal range of switches.

- Keycaps: We have an EXTREMELY limited quantity of 1350 low profile keycaps that we have sourced from Kailh. These are hard to find and we are not sure we will be able to re-stock them.
