The size of the keyboard body is about 328mm×150mm×44mm. The moderate body size also makes it more suitable for the user scenario of a small desktop, and it is friendly enough for users. The frame of the fuselage is slightly wider, and with the compact 75% layout, it can also meet the daily input needs of most users.


A three-stage switch is provided on the left side of the fuselage, which is used to quickly control the lighting mode, corresponding to the constant light mode, breathing mode and light off, so that users can quickly adjust the lighting effect according to their needs.
