82 Keys 75% Compact Layout
EPOMAKER Skyline custom wired mechanical keyboard DIY kit is designed in a favored compact 75% layout by the community to maximize the function while not waste a minimum of space. This layout is widely used and loved by the community and Skyline will surely beyond your expectation with the hot swappable socket, programmable software and amazing RGB backlights.
Gasket mounting is a type of keyboard mounting, where no screw holes are drilled into the switch plate. Instead, the switch plate is wedged in between the case layers and PCB through the support of rubber strips, or gaskets. Compared to a top mount system, a gasket-mounted keyboard has a cleaner sound profile because the gaskets cushion the shock of each keystroke. Gasket-mounted keyboards also give a softer typing experience, which helps avoid hand fatigue for those who type for long periods. On the other hand, top-mounted keyboards tend to be stiffer.
Hot Swappable PCB, Compatible with 3Pin/5Pin Switch
EPOMAKER Skyline Kit is equipped with hot swappable PCB to ensure free replacement or change of switches. You don’t need to solder it. It is compatible with most 3 pin and 5 pin mechanical switches, such as Cherry, Gateron, Otemu, Kailh and other MX switches and its clones.
Amazing RGB Backlight & Music Rhythm Mode
RGB backlight is always considered as one of the important elements for mechanical keyboards thus this DIY kit makes more than simple RGB backlight. It features a mesh structure at the bottom of the kit and side RGB lights design. The keyboard will be fully surrounded by amazing RGB effects.
Rotary Knob Control

Easy, simple and elegant, EPOMAKER Skyline DIY Kit is such a functional mechanical keyboard kit for any one who is looking for something new and want to try customization.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
- Keyboard Customized Kit (PCB, Mounted Plate, Stabilizers)
- Type-C Cable
- Keycap Puller
Came earlier than expected, and was in perfect shape. A great budget option for a custom keyboard, though mods(like tape or foam) are harder.
I love the design but my keyboard is not level basically crooked so it moves when I type, I have to put a thick layer of tape for it to be stable
EPOMAKER NEXT TIME Skyline 75% Kit
This is easily one of my favorite keyboards, very sturdy, sounds great, works flawlessly, and the lighting is beautiful . Also for the price this can't be beat. the only issue is the knob is a little shaky.
First of all, the case itself feels like a cheep plastic and collects dust and oils very quickly. And when you try to take off the case you kind of have to rip it off. It hurt my hands trying to take it off. And even after taking the case off it wouldn't let me take off the daughter board. And since I couldn't take off the case I couldn't take off the spacebar stabilizers. So I had to cut off the case foam to take it out. And even though people say that this has one of the best staock stabs, its not that good. They have rattling and lots of ticking. And, on tope of that some of the keys aren't registering, specifically the s key and others. And, when I put on my GMK laser, there was this weird high pitch clicky noise, but when I put my XDA keycaps on, the werid clicking goes away. This kind of ruined my keyboard and even after putting lube on the stabs it just made it much and terrible. I don't even use it anymore; it is just collecting dust. I don't know if you will accept it anymore, because I have already owned it for a while. But if I allowed, I would request to get a different board, like the IK75 or something. god bless please read before ordering.
