DUCK SWITCHES 🦆

In development for over the past six months, we are excited to introduce our latest innovation - the DUCK switch. Working closely with our manufacturing partners, we have translated our MUTE mounting platform (found in the KARA, M60-B, M65-B and U80-B) into an MX switch. The implementation acts as an elastic medium between the top and bottom housing, thereby creating tighter tolerances. This will allow the switch to have a deeper and consistent sound profile whilst eliminating the need for switch-films. 

FEATURES 💡

The DUCK switch is linear and comes standard with a long pole POM stem, a polycarbonate top housing, two-stage spring, nylon bottom housing, polished stem rails, and the MUTE mounting pads which are co-moulded to the bottom housing.

LINEAR 📏

We have opted to make the DUCK a linear progression switch which produces a smooth and consistent actuation. This will allow you to focus and enjoy the sound of it when bottoming out.

LUBED 💦

To provide the best experience from the get go, these switches come pre-lubed from the factory.

NYLON BOTTOM HOUSING 👨‍🔬

With a focus on creating a distinct sound profile, we have opted for a Nylon bottom housing which will produce a deeper acoustic note when in tandem with the long pole POM stem. The MUTE mounting pads affixed to the top of the bottom housing further enhance this.

To enhance the smoothness of actuating a keypress, we have opted for polished stem rails to allow maximum downstroke glide.

SPRING ⚖️

The DUCK switch utilises a two-staged spring, allowing for more forceful/snappier upstrokes and stable/consistent downstrokes. This will provide a unique typing experience - giving you a subtle weight change toward the middle actuation.

63G 🏋️‍♀️

Having assessed the market, we have decided to use a 63g spring weight as this would cater to most users and pair well with the two-staged spring to allow typists to make fewer mistakes and enjoy their typing experience.   

PARTS 🧰

For those wanting to create their own frankenswitches, the DUCK switch comes with some fantastic components that are compatible with other switches in the market. The bottom housing with MUTE pads provides an excellent platform to build from and we look forward to seeing how they are used and what great creations come of them.
