Unleash Your Typing Power with the Keychron Q5 Mechanical Keyboard - Now in Sleek Black!

Introducing the Keychron Q5, the compact powerhouse with a 96% layout, delivering all your essential functions and number keys in a stylish full-metal CNC machined body. Packed with a double-gasket design and QMK/VIA support, the Q5 is the ultimate choice for those seeking an almost full-size keyboard.

Barebones Edition: Before we dive in, a quick heads-up - the Q5 comes as a barebones edition, meaning it doesn't come with switches or keycaps. It's a blank canvas, ready for your personal touch!

Premium Aluminum Body: The Q5 is crafted to perfection, featuring a 6063 aluminum CNC machined body with a polished, anodized, and sandblasted finish. This results in a keyboard that's not only sturdy but also exudes a premium build quality, ensuring a solid and satisfying typing experience.

Double-Gasket Design: Get ready for a typing experience like no other. The Q5's unique gasket design delivers a flexible, responsive typing feel paired with a satisfying sound. Silicone pads placed between the top and bottom cases significantly reduce sound resonance between the metals, ensuring quieter typing sessions.

Programmable Knob: Elevate your creativity with the premium rotary encoder. It's designed to enhance your workflow, allowing you to customize your favorite keys and macros with ease using the innovative VIA software. Want to zoom in/out, adjust screen brightness, control brush size, opacity, volume, select video clips or photos, or tweak backlight hues? Customize the Q5's knob to make it happen!

Hot-Swappable PCB: Say goodbye to the hassles of disassembly and soldering. The Q5's hot-swappable PCB lets you switch out switches effortlessly. Explore your favorite switches or try out new ones without worrying about damaging your keyboard. This PCB supports both 3-pin and 5-pin MX mechanical switches.

Gateron Screw-In PCB Stabilizers: Stability is the name of the game, and the Q5 nails it with its screw-in design. The silver-plated stabilizers are ultra-stable and virtually wobble-free. Experience a smooth and stable typing experience, especially on big keys like the space bar, shift, enter, and delete, with significantly reduced rattling. Plus, the Q5 supports third-party stabilizers, including Cherry or Durock.

South Facing RGB: Brighten up your workspace with the Q5's unique South Facing RGB lighting. LEDs placed at the bottom of the switches create a dazzling effect, making your keyboard appear brighter and more vibrant. This feature pairs perfectly with PBT, Cherry profile, and non-shine-through keycaps, making it a favorite among customization enthusiasts.

Sound Absorbing Foam: Bid farewell to noisy typing! The Q5 is equipped with sound-absorbing foam that reduces vibrations and drastically improves the sound signature, allowing you to type in peace.

Mac OS and Windows Support: Crafted with Mac users in mind, the Q5 maintains compatibility with Windows devices. It even lets you save two different layouts on the keyboard, one for each system. Get the best of both worlds!

QMK and VIA Support: Unleash your creativity with full QMK and VIA support. Customize and remap every key on your keyboard with ease using the open-source firmware. Create unique layouts, shortcuts, and captivating backlight effects that reflect your personality.

Cases Available in Three Colors: The Keychron Q5 Barebone case offers three captivating colors: Black, Grey, and Blue. Choose the one that suits your style and workspace.

Dimensions: Despite its compact design, the Q5 delivers a spacious typing experience, measuring 145mm in width and 390.4mm in length.

Tools Included: We've got you covered with all the essential tools: a switch puller, keycap puller, screwdriver, and hex key.
