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.

Hot-swappable Module for Knobs and Switches

The Skyloong GK980 keyboard is equipped with hot swappable terminals, with which you can install 3/5 pin switches directly without soldering. In this version, GK980 is with hotswappable modules specifically designed for both knobs and switches. By simply pulling it out, you can easily swap the knob with a regular mechanical switch and keycap. Thanks to the powerful proprietary software, you can also customize the knob's function at will.

Wired and Wireless: Type-C, 2.4G & Bluetooth 5.1 Connections

Designed for versatility, the GK980 can be used in distinct three ways: Bluetooth 5.1, 2.4G USB wireless, and Type C wired connections. You can connect the keyboard to your devices with the included Type-C cable, using a 2.4G wireless dongle, or simply using the latest Bluetooth 5.1 connection. Connecting up to 2 devices via Bluetooth and wireless 2.4GHz simultaneously. The signal transmission is stable to meet the needs of diverse work, study, and entertainment.

Split Spacebar Module & PBT Keycaps in GK5 Profile

As a member in the GK Lite series, GK980 keyboard also includes an extra split spacebar module (2.75U/2.25U/1.25U) with which you can customize it based on your own typing habit. As to the keycaps, we go with premium PBT material to achieve an ultimate experience. With the scrubbed surface texture, they feel smooth and it is oil-proof, so it won't remain your fingerprints even after a long time use. The GK5 profile makes the classic shape provide a comfortable typing experience while using the GK980 keyboard.

    Great keyboard, software hard to use.

    Love the keyboard and its versatility with knobs, macros and hot swap. The software has a fair few bugs and can be annoying to use. The usb-c cable port is a bit of a pain as it doesn’t fit larger/thicker usb-c connectors. I was forced to use the cable that comes with the board.

    Love it

    Its a really nice Keyboard.
    I really like the fealing of typing on it.
    I changed the switches and the Keycaps.
    Changed to Aflion Blue Sky since they are my favorite Switches

    Punches above its Price Point!

    I got the Alu Top Case + FR4 Plate / Blue Pink Keycap / Iceberg Brown Switch. In the pre-order it took about a month from purchase date to arrive.

    The case is very nice, the gasket and plate make it rigid enough to not give when heavy pressure is applied but soft enough to absorb normal typing.

    The colors look better in person. The key caps and switches are very nice and are thocky. The knobs are nice and have both a tactile press and tactile turn clicks. Each rotation direction and press can be programmed separately.
    The packaging is very nicely designed and comes with plenty of padding and a clear plastic top cover.
    The cord that comes with the keyboard is good quality, however, the color of the cord that came with mine did not match, but it is braided and coiled with a quick disconnect like many other keyboard cords.

    Overall the Sky Loong GK980 punches way above its price bracket and is hard to beat if you need a 96%/98% that has an aluminum case with knobs.

    great option at the price!

    i got the full plastic case with steel plate and it's honestly great for $100 USD! It's pretty stiff out of the box, the case seems pretty filled and sonically solid. I got the iceberg brown switches which according to the Q&A section are epomaker-produced? So the build i got is pretty "poppy" sounding which is very much up my alley. I think these switches are a little scratchy so i am gonna lubricate them and then they will be perfect for me personally. I am not going to mod this board but i can definitely see a lot of people not liking this option for how stiff it is out of the box. Obviously steel plate has a different experience than other more flexible materials.

    Took about a month for me to receive the product after ordering it (upstate New York)
