With the U80, we at Rama Works are re-engineering our refined aesthetic from the ground up, with function and design paramount at all stages for our most anticipated board to date. U80 represents what our future holds at Rama Works. It is bold in a way that we have not ventured. You can see it transferred and refined with each sequence--every technical pass. The journey with U80 has been exceptional, there have been insightful lessons we hope to utilize in our projects for years to come. This keyboard is designed to dominate any desk it sits on. The monolithic structure is machined entirely from high-end metals and informs stability in any setup.
Beyond the new custom design, the U80 boasts per-switch RGB LEDs and USB-C. Also highlighted with this new board is a thoughtful layout which provides all the keys you’ll ever need, for any game or task - elegantly spaced out. Each element of the keyboard is meticulously crafted, from our new countersunk screws to custom-made laser etched Stainless Steel TORX T10 fasteners.
Designed for the ultimate performance. A fully machined brass switch plate sits isolated from the enclosure. The mirror polished PVD brass weight is also included for that extra weight, a signature touch to the overall product. The switches sit on a signature PVD coated brass plate, hand-Polished to a mirror finish.
In addition to these enhancements in our offering, we are proud to introduce MUTE, our newly engineered mounting technology, made of non-conductive silicone. This new system provides yet an extra layer of response as it deadens the sound while cushioning each keystroke.
RAMA WORKS MUTE
With the U80-A we’re introducing our new plate mounting & dampening solution. The Rama Works MUTE.
The MUTE isolates the plate inside the enclosure providing a unique typing experience.
SOLDERLESS OR SOLDERABLE & IN-SWITCH RGB
In an effort to provide the best end-user experience available, the U80-A PCB requires no soldering to construct with any Cherry MX-compatible switches. The U80-A offers a USB-C connection attached to the USB Extension PCB. There will be additional PCBs also available for individual sale. The board includes in-switch RGB LEDs under the PCB, which require no installation. PCB design by Wilba.
The U80-Ax variant is a solderable version without hotswap sockets for those who are discerning with their switch choice.

MIRROR POLISHED WEIGHT
Brass - Hand Polished - PVD coated - Heavy
There is also an optional interior weight for extra heft and resonance. The optional interior weight is a beadblasted brass weight which has been PVD coated. The weight adds some extra stability to the exceptionally solid build of the U80-A.
The optional interior dampener is a moulded silicone insert which absorbs the sound inside the keyboard for an adjusted acoustic signature.
RW FT MX-X T10 A FASTENERS
The U80-A utilises our custom fasteners. You’ll only need one tool, a Torx T10 driver (included), to assemble and disassemble most of the keyboard. Except for the CSK screws in the plate which uses a T6 driver (included)
