This is a pre-order, and we expect these keyboard chassis to ship in mid-October.
The Keychron Q1 is the latest keyboard from Keychron, and their first 'barebones' style keyboard chassis, designed so that customers can customise their typing experience by selection the switches, keycaps and other accessories which suit their tastes. This product does not include any of these items, so they will have to be purchased separately to make a complete keyboard. The kit does include a set of Gateron stabilisers pre-fitted to the board.
There has been a lot of positive hype about this board, and it's sure to make custom keyboards more accessible to everyone. It's often difficult to find custom keyboard chassis in-stock and ready to go, but finally there are some decent options for those who don't want to wait a year for a custom keyboard group-buy.
