The New SixtyFive
Now Available for pre-order

Originally launched in 2021, the SixtyFive ushered in a new era for mechanical keyboards featuring a bold yet refined design and unparalleled customization. After three years of learning, growing, and listening closely to the voices of our community, we find ourselves ready to bring back one of our most popular keyboards ever. For us this project was a labor of love and we went into it with great care and attention to detail in order to preserve the defining elements of the original SixtyFive while simultaneously revisiting every detail to bring the board up to date with the advancements we’ve made over the years.

All in the details

The design of the SixtyFive is at a glance simple, but upon a closer look every inch of the board has subtle detailing and thoughtful decisions that all contribute to a harmonious blend of materials, textures, and accents.

Magnetizing Design, Snap-on Simplicity

Embrace a keyboard that's as dynamic as you are. With magnetizing design and snap-on simplicity, redefine your workspace.

Make it heavy

The bottom weight and badge allow you to add more heft to your board while also provide a visual point of interest.

Or go even heavier

The two-piece design allows for the use of full-copper or brass bottoms which provide a shocking amount of heft to the board.

Our most versatile mounting system

The new SixtyFive retains the classic isolated top mount while introducing our new mounting block system.
