Substantial & Customizable
The Paragon Keyboard is a 75% Keyboard with design and usability in mind. The keyboard features a rotary encoder which can be programmed to various functions including changing volume or brightness. The keyboard can be mapped with VIA or QMK. The keyboard was tested with the VIA firmware programmer; this allows you to customise your keyboard with ease to exactly how you want it.
Flex , a lot of flex.
For the first time, Keebwerk is offering two gasket variants and two plate types to provide a variety of flex and dampening characteristics when typing. Over the span of 10 months, we tested different plate thicknesses, gasket materials, gasket types, and plate flex cuts. We came to the conclusion that Poron and Silicone gaskets in tandem with a flexible polycarbonate plate and slightly stiffer aluminium plate provide the best typing experience for the Paragon.
Colors and Colors...
The Paragon features 5 different colors, 1 colors is e-white finish. You can select the color of the PVD to match your liking in gold or silver, and you can also have a PC plate or a aluminium plate which is fixed in anodised black. The anodisation has been tested with other keebwerk. products over the years and the feedback has only been positive with long term of use. The 5 available colors are listed as: Black, Deep Navy, Gunmetal, Purple and E-White.
