Shallow Gasket Structure & Bottom Foam
The GK980 keyboard is adapted with the patented Shallow Gasket design, which comes with an all-in-one silicone pad, which is meticulously made of lightweight liquid silicone with high precision to match each switch. Inserted in between the PCB board and the plate, the Shallow Gasket silicone pad not only eliminates the traditional design’s drawback of lacking support in the main typing area, but also cushions the shock under every keystroke. The keyboard also contains a foam at the bottom layer to reduce hallow sounds, as well as enhancing the feeling of typing stokes.
1800 Exploded Hotswap Keyboard with a Rotary Knob
GK980 comes in 1800 exploded size, which skips the home clusters in a full keyboard and retain the numpad, and leaving some space with arrow keys. By adding a rotary knob, the keyboard can change the volume by simply rotating left and right.
Note: Hot-swappable for Gateron / Skyloong 1-pin Optical switches only. Not compatible with 3-pin & 5-pin mechanical switches.
Pre-lubed Gateron Optical Switches
The Gateron Optical switches are 1-pin switches. Unlike the traditional mechanical switches, the optical switches are triggered by laser though the contact point. In this way, they can last longer than general mechanical switches. Being factory lubed, the Gateron Optical switches can present better sounds and pro-long the life span. With the keyboard of GK980, there are linear blacks, yellows and reds as well as tactile browns and clicky blues for choosing.
High-quality PBT Pudding Keycaps in GK7 Profile
The GK980 keyboard adopts the PBT material for the surface of keycaps, which is proved to be sturdy and oil-proof even after long time use. With the transparent sides, the keyboard glows brightly in dark atmospheres. Skyloong made the keycaps in the customized GK7 profile, which can keep the typing angle ergonomic and also fit the north-facing LEDs without any interference.
16.8 Million RGB Backlight
Set up the colors and rhythm in the way you like it and match up the lighting effects with your mode every day! There are different backlight effects available for you to choose, and you can even customize your own gaming light modes in the software. Make your keyboard unique by matching its color scheme with your room!
Select the best switch for your style.
Before choosing what type of mechanical or optical switch, we need to understand it is mostly about preference. You need to look into what will work best for you and what you will use your keyboard for the most. Our Epomaker GK series, and some of our other keyboards allow for hotswappability. This means that even if you dislike the current switch you bought, you can swap it to another switch. Which switch you can swap to depends on your keyboard type.
