More importantly, it allows you to position your mouse much closer to your neutral hand position so you donít have to reach as far, minimizing wrist and shoulder Pain, Numbness, and Tingling.

The Most Comfortable and Best Optical Mechanical Keyboard
Our new Truly Ergonomic Keyboard helps You work in comfort and helps You reduce the typing pain commonly caused by conventional keyboards.

The Truly Ergonomic CLEAVE Keyboard is the most advanced ergonomic mechanical keyboard, representing our mission to completely redefine what the best ergonomic keyboard should feel like, and prove that it can truly feel like an extension of You.

Relative Finger Strength
The moment you first sit down in front of the Truly Ergonomic CLEAVE Keyboard, one of the first things you'll notice is that some of the most commonly used keys have been moved to the center of the layout. There's a very good reason for this, and it's all about relative finger strength.

Your thumbs and index fingers are much stronger and faster than your pinky fingers will ever be. This is why we've reorganized the layout to bring the most commonly used keys within easy reach of your strongest fingers.

For example, heavy use keys like Shift & Enter can now be quickly actuated by the thumbs, and Backspace & Delete keys with the index fingers, allowing you to keep your hands in a comfortable position without having to constantly stretch your fingers. Optimizations like this are important because they reduce strain on your weaker fingers by leveraging your stronger fingers for most of the work.

A New Benchmark for Speed and Durability
The Truly Ergonomic CLEAVE Keyboard benefits from state-of-the-art optical mechanical key switches using Infrared Light to register every keystroke, providing an extraordinary comfortable feel and the fastest actuation.

Instead of relying on outdated metal-to-metal contacts or dreadful rubber domes, each optical key switch on our keyboard contains its own laser emitter and sensor for lightning fast actuation to help make the typing experience feel swift and effortless.

Guaranteed for 100 Million keystrokes

Optical Infrared switches offer instantaneous actuation, while eliminating all of the common wear and tear issues that come along with all other mechanical keyboards.

Problems like duplicate key presses, key chattering, oxidation, debouncing glitches, performance degradation, double letters and missing letters, will all soon be things of the past as Optical Infrared Mechanical switches become the new standard.

Our switches are also a dream come true for your hands. Soft, sturdy, comfortable, consistent, and offering an amazing reliability. So even after years of use, rest assured that the switches on your CLEAVE Keyboard will still feel strong, comfortable, and satisfying.

A Perfect Fit, Anywhere
When it comes to putting together your dream workstation, we know how important cable management is. That's why the CLEAVE Keyboard comes with built in cable re-routing functionality.

Whether you prefer the cable to run straight out the back, or on either side of the keyboard, you can pick the style that suits your workstation best.

Convenient cable management coupled with the overall compact design of the keyboard allow you to easily pair it with laptops, so you can take the ultimate ergonomic typing experience with you anywhere you go.

Reclaim Your Desk Space
We've all seen those cheesy 'hacker' movies where computer geniuses seem to be able to work all kinds of digital magic by furiously tapping away on the keyboard, without ever reaching for the mouse. But in reality, most computer work involves a combination of keyboard and mouse input.

After spending a few hours constantly switching between keyboard and mouse input, it'll quickly become obvious that the distance between your keyboard and your mouse is vital to your comfort, and that the closer the two devices are to each other, the faster and easier the whole input process becomes.

Evolutionary Progress after 150 Years
When it comes to the arrangement of the keys on a computer keyboard, the shocking problem with today's conventional options is that they are still stuck in the 1800's.

The staggered key arrangement found in most computer keyboards comes from 1860's typewriters, and while it's believed to be somewhat effective in terms of typing speed, it's pretty terrible in terms of ergonomics.

Fast forward to today, and you'll notice that while the technology behind the keys has advanced by leaps and bounds, the conventional arrangement of the keys themselves remains archaic and unimproved.

Some manufacturers have tried to solve the ergonomic problems inherent in the 1860's design, but their 'solutions' usually involve simply dividing the already uncomfortable staggered key arrangement into two halves, while leaving the rest of the layout unchanged.

The reason these keyboards fail to improve user comfort is that they're still big and awkward, and don't do enough to enhance the actual ergonomics of typing.

Pain Free Productivity
Here's something to think about Ė when you sit down in front of a pad of paper to write something down, do you place the pad perfectly straight in front of you and then twist your wrist in order to write out a line?

Of course you don't. What you do is angle the pad slightly so that your hand and forearm form a nice, straight, comfortable line to write with. No one taught you to do this, you just did it instinctively. You automatically found the most ergonomic position to write in, and it just feels right.

By changing the angle and arrangement of the keys, the CLEAVE Keyboard allows you to place your wrists, forearms and hands in a neutral position, keeping you safe from Pain, Numbness, Tingling, Weakness, and CTS/RSI, while also enhancing your typing speed.

Imagine being able to swiftly and effortlessly type up any document, write a novel, dive into the most demanding essay, or write long lines of code, all while minimizing any potential wear and tear on your body. The CLEAVE Keyboard allows you to have your hands and forearms in the angle you feel most comfortable, while keeping your wrists straight and supported. It's the perfect blend of comfort and productivity.

It's All About The Feel
Any computer enthusiast will tell you that when it comes to keyboards, nothing beats spring-loaded mechanical switches.

Our switches deliver a consistent, high-quality feel with each and every keystroke. We obsessed over the tactile feel of our keys, making sure that the travel distance, debounce time, and actuation point for each is absolutely perfect.

Our Optical Mechanical switches deliver actuation speeds that seemed impossible before, and because we've done away with the vulnerable physical contact points, our switches are as durable as they are fast!

The end result is a keyboard that helps you type indefinitely.

A Light in The Dark
We believe that when it comes to keyboard backlighting, most other manufacturers can't quite resist the temptation to turn their keyboards into pulsating disco balls of distraction.

By contrast, the Truly Ergonomic CLEAVE Keyboard keeps things comfortable and classy with a simple, powerful, bright white LED backlight under each key, delivering the most comfortable color for visibility in any light condition.

Since the CLEAVE Keyboard is designed for easy customization with swappable switches, we deliberately installed our LEDs on the PCB itself instead of on the switch. This allows you to replace any switch while still retaining full backlight functionality.
