Neo65 Design

Unibody Case

Our design code is based on minimalism. The Neo 65 features an ultra-slim side bezel that blends seamlessly with any desk setup, regardless of the theme.

Neat Side Profile

We chose an inward-sloping edge to complement the minimal design on the front. This also makes it easier to pick up the keyboard.

Brass Weight with Orbit Engraved Logo

The name Neo not only refers to the designer but also represents Near Earth Objects.

We opted for the orbit as the logo for the Neo series to symbolize the interconnection and alternation of our products.

Dual Mounting System

  • Support both PCB gasket mount and gummy O-ring mount (not compatible with plateless configurations)
  • With our specially designed gaskets, the PCB and plate can be securely held in place, even if the case is flipped upside down
  • Finely-tuned sound profile - no hollowness nor case ping without the use of any foam
  • Reserved groove for the O-ring at the blocker - no need to forcefully bend the O-ring anymore, so the assembly experience can be more efficient and enjoyable
  • O-rings with different stiffness levels are available to provide varying typing feedback

Key Notes:
  • Please note that PVD doesn’t equal to mirror-polished. PVD usually refers to glossy surfaces like the weight on Spring, but it is only a coating technique that applies colour, similar to anodization or spray-coating.
  • Tri-Mode PCB means Bluetooth, 2,4GHz and USB-C connection possible. These boards will come with a battery included. All Tri-Mode PCBs support Hotswap.
  • ISO is supported with a multilayout PCB that uses a East/West facing sockets.
  • Single plateless solder builds are sadly not possible at this moment. You can purchase additional Solder PCBs and build it plateless if you want.
