Derived from the Neo65 but specifically designed for the FRL TKL layout, the unibody case of the Neo70 exemplifies the elegance of minimalism while offering a sturdy foundation for effortless assembly.
Neat Side Profile
We chose an inward-sloping edge to complement the minimal design on the front. This also makes it easier to pick up the keyboard.
Function keys are separated from the alphas to minimize potential hollow sounds and allow for individual adjustment. The cover plate above the arrow keys is attached using magnets, making it easy to remove the PCB whenever needed.
We believe that providing an easy assembly/disassembly experience is crucial for making mechanical keyboards more accessible, which is always a top priority in our product design. Building upon the feedback we received from the Neo65, we have further simplified the disassembly process of the Neo70 into 2 steps: removing the badge, which is attached to the case using magnets, and pushing out the PCB.
Ribbon cables have long been a source of frustration for keyboard enthusiasts, which is also the main complaint we received for the Neo65. To address this issue and enable the 2-step disassembly, we replaced the ribbon cables with magnetic connectors. These connectors automatically connect and disconnect when you insert and remove the PCB.
Same as the Neo65, the Neo70 supports both PCB gasket mount and gummy O-ring mount in the alpha section (not compatible with plateless configurations). The gaskets have been further upgraded to be more durable.
