Customize Your Q1
Choose the keycaps, switches and more accessories for your Q1.

The sculpting of a piece of art.
This keyboard is not just a tool, but a piece of art on your desk. The Q1 is created with a 6063 aluminum CNC machined body, polished, anodized and sandblasted finish, and twenty-four manufacturing processes.

You can assemble every part.
To build a fully customizable keyboard, we designed every component to be able to assemble easily. Therefore, you can customize and adjust each component as you wish.

Switch layouts between macOS & Windows.
Built with the Mac users experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, Keychron Q1 comes with a system toggle and an additional set of customized keycaps for both Windows and macOS systems. You will be able to save two different layouts in the keyboard, one for each system.

Gasket-mounted design makes typing more flexible.
The gasket design provides the board with a nice, flexible typing feel and a satisfying typing sound. The Q1ís maximum flex is up to 2.5mm, which makes the board one of the most flexible out there.

Program Q1 with QMK & VIA.
With full QMK and VIA support, you can program and remap each key on the keyboard with ease. The open-source firmware means endless possibilities for keyboard layouts, shortcuts, backlight effects, and more.
VIA is a keyboard keymap programming software. Using VIA, you can define every key and even write MACROS for the key combinations you want on your Q1. VIA supports macOS, Windows & Linux.

The hot-swappable sockets are mounted on the PCB, so you can install or change the switches without soldering. The PCB supports both 3 pin and 5 pin MX mechanical switches.

South-facing RGB LED Lights.
The south-facing RGB SMD LED lights are easy to be seen because they are facing toward the typer. Itís also good for the PBT, Cherry profile, and non-shine-through keycaps which are popular for customized keycaps.

All new Gateron screw-in PCB stablizers.
The screw-in design increases stability and makes it easy for changes and upgrades. More precise craftsmanship makes the silver-plated stabilizers more stable and less wobbly. The big keys (space bar, shift, enter, delete) typing experience is more stable and smooth.
Keychron Q1 also support third-party stabilizers including Cherry or Durock.

Cable management is easy with the premium coiled cable.
Whether your computer's interface is on the left, right, or front of the desk, the premium coiled cable can be laid out in any manner. We have also designed the coiled cables in different colors to match the different color cases.

ISO layout.
ISO layout is widely used in Europe.
Note: If you live outside of Europe, we recommend you to purchase the ANSI version.

Fantastic keyboard. Takes mods well and the build quality is excellent! South facing LEDs can be a pain to get good keycaps for so be warned but the board itself is fantastic. KeyboardCo is also a fantastic company with great customer service.

What a fantastic keyboard, at a great price too. Took me some time to find the right switches, keycaps and install the PC flex board but I got there.. What a pleasure to work on, not looking forward to the Winter though, the frame is SO cold !

Bruce & Helen were fantastic during my purchase and I will definitely be back for more toys soon !

I was very impressed with the quality of this barebones keyboard, and the price (on sale) made it a steal. The keyboard was also promptly dispatched and delivered by a reliable courier.

I hadn't shopped with The Keyboard Company before, but I will be doing so again.

Got this for an absolute steal of a sales price. This is a chunky, sturdy chassis that can take a bashing, with fantastic acoustics and a beautiful finish.

No complaints here!

Fantastic keyboard. Needs the thicker foam in the bottom removing and the force break mod doing but both of those are free or very cheap and make it a great keyboard. I also have the V1 and this is defintely a step up.
