Hexgears Gemini Dusk Kailh BOX Switch Mechanical Keyboard

Hexgears Gemini Dusk Mechanical Keyboard 1

The Gemini Dusk mechanical keyboard pairs warp speed input with super-bright RGB LEDs and advanced programming features — it's the ultimate gaming peripheral. A machined all-metal case, custom PBT doubleshot keycaps, and Kailh hot-swap switch sockets CPG151101S11 set the Gemini Dusk light years ahead of lesser offerings.

Twin Styles

Match your desk, rig, and peripherals with a Gemini Dusk. You can also investigate the Gemini Dawn, its quicksilver twin. Both have keys that shine like suns in more than 16 million colors.

Durable pbt Keycaps

The Gemini Dusk's doubleshot PBT-plastic keycaps, produced by Tai-Hao, are massively better than the cheap ABS-plastic caps used in big-name keyboards. ABS keycaps get shiny, discolor, and often have painted legends (letters) that wear off quickly. Tai-Hao's custom PBT keycaps resist shine, shrug off discoloration, and maintain a comfortable texture. Their two-part manufacturing method means that the legends are virtually impossible to wear off — each one goes all the way through its keycap.

Premium Features

Comfort and style complement Gemini Dusk's performance. Dual USB-C ports provide future-proofing and effective cable management options. Flip out feet (an irritating relic from the 80s) are nixed in favor of a magnetic angle adjustment bar. Custom-made LEDs pump out extra light. All of those features, and more, are amplified by unmatched control over your gaming experience.

Open Source Advantage

Hexgears partnered with Input Club, a group of keyboard enthusiasts, to make their vision of keyboard precision widely accessible. Optimized Open Source firmware and a powerful microcontroller translate your finger movements into onscreen action.

Hot-Swap Sockets

Customization doesn't stop at the firmware level — you can change switches at will with the Gemini Dusk's hot-swap sockets. Try different mechanical switches easily and quickly; create the perfect switch layout based on your preferences. No soldering necessary. That means you can have linear switches, tactile switches, and clicky switches in the same keyboard (if that's your thing).

Updated Gaming / Media Layout

Hexgears and Input Club are changing a few keys on the default TKL layout to increase functionality without losing features. We will have more to announce in the future.
