The Kinesis Freestyle2 Ergonomic Keyboard is now available for the Mac! A split-design ergonomic keyboard, the Kinesis Freestyle2 Ergonomic Keyboard for Mac allows users to split the two keyboard halves at a comfortable distance. This results in less strain and improved long-term health. Also available are numerous accessory kits which allow the user to easily tent and angle the keyboard halves.

We also offer the Kinesis Freestyle2 Adjustable Split Keyboard for PC users.

The Kinesis Freestyle2 Ergonomic Keyboard for Mac is available in both a standard model as well as the exteneded version. The standard Freestyle2 for Mac keyboard features 9 inches of separation, which works for most users, but the extended Freestyle2 for Mac offers 20 inches of separation between the split keyboard halves, and it works well for users with very broad shoulders or for someone who would like to angle their keyboards up to 90° with the Ascent accessory.

  • KB800HMB-US-20: Freestyle2 Keyboard Mac - Black with up to 20 inch separation between keyboard halves

Freestyle2 for Mac Accessory

The Kinesis Freestyle2 ergonomic keyboard for Mac is designed with two separate halves, which can be manipulated in a variety of ways with the accessories listed below. Use a tenting accessory, like the V3 or the VIP3, to angle and tent the keyboard to your desired position. If you prefer a more dramatic angle, the Ascent accessory will allow you to select any angle from 20 to 90 degrees for your keyboard.

V3 Accessory Kit [KB830HMB-US]

With the Kinesis V3 Accessory Kit, tent the Freestyle2 keyboard for Mac to 5, 10 or 15 degrees. The V3 accessory tents the two split keyboard halves without the palm rests. The V3 can be used with or without the optional tether.

  • Left and right V-lifters to define the slope of the keyboard

Ascent Multi-Tent Accessory Option [AC740-BLK]

For the ultimate in angle flexibility, we recommend the Kinesis Ascent Multi-Tent Accessory which allows for vertical typing with the ability to choose any angle between 20 and 90 degrees. The Ascent Multi-Tent Accessory eliminates all twisting of the forearms and pronation of the wrists. The Ascent accessory includes:

  • Two multi-angle tenting modules, which attach to each side of the keyboard
  • Modules are independently adjustable allowing each side to be angled independently of the other
  • A linking plate, which may be used to connect the modules, if desired
  • Accessory works with the standard model Freestyle2 for Mac, but is recommended for the Extended Freestyle2 for Mac keyboard with the 20 inch separation
  • Black color

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

The Kinesis Freestyle is an excellent ergonomic keyboard we recommend frequently. It has a very unique feature: it splits completely in half and allows the halves to be placed in optimal positions to maintain a neutral wrist posture. The quality of this keyboard is extremely good; we get very few problem reports. I recommend that users add the VIP or V3 option that tents the keyboard to reduce forearm pronation. If you like the idea of having more flexibility with how far you separate the keyboard halves (or you want to use this keyboard with the Ascent for vertical typing), you can purchase the extended 20" cord version of the Freestyle. Be conscious of separating the extended keyboard halves too much: if your mouse is too far to the right or left, then this can lead to extensive reaching for your mouse and possible shoulder fatigue. The Kinesis Freestyle in combination with one of the accessory options is an optimal ergonomic keyboard solution. I like the VIP, V3, and Ascent accessories.

Excellent keyboard with the vip3 accessory
July 17, 2014
I just received the unit today, assembly was very easy and I'm loving the ability to space out my hands. I've looked into seperated keyboards because of my wrist problems, and it's amazing how the high tenting and the spacing really helps alleviate strain. Also, the mac hotkeys are great, many ergonomic keyboards don't come with mac options so this keyboard wins the token. Highly recommend! Also, the action of the keyboard is quite nice, it's amazingly easy to type fast due to the low 45g key action. Still not mechanical cherry switches, but pretty darn good.

Kinesis Freestyle2 Ergonomic Keyboard for Mac

This product is fantastic and after only a couple of months using the keyboard the pain in my wrists has virtually subsided so mission accomplished. The only things that prevented me from giving 5 stars are the following: 1) The picture on the website is a little misleading as it suggests that the keyboard is wireless, however it is not a wireless keyboard. 2) If the colour of the keyboard was white and silver to match the Mac iPad that would be awesome.

Great Product
October 18, 2013
Well constructed, very user friendly, comfortable. I have "tennis elbow" and keyboard a lot. This keyboard is just fantastic for reducing the pressure and tension on my wrists and theyefore, elbow. What was especially cool for me was that I wrote the company, requesting advice, and I got a prompt and friendly response that was very informative and helpful. Great product; solid company! Right on!

Almost a 5 star

All things considered, I think it's a pretty good keyboard. Pros: - Key action is awesome. So much easier to press the keys than my old MS natural elite. - The split keyboard design along with the VIP adjustment kit allow you to customize the placement in ways that other keyboards can't compete with - I've been having less RSI issues with this keyboard. (To be fair though, I have done a lot of things to help with my treatment so I can't say for sure that this keyboard did the job). Cons: - I have one major con that irritates me on a daily basis. I bought the mac version of the keyboard and the function key only supports a full toggle rather than behaving like all other osx keyboards. It locks, and doesn't obey the os setting for making it behave differently. This may seem trivial, but it is extremely annoying because I use the function keys in both modes quite frequently throughout the day. Even more irritating is the company response to this in that they believe the existing functionality is "better" and are relatively dismissive of the idea that it should work like other OSX keyboards. My response from technical support was that they feel it's better like this and that they hope I get used to it. I'm giving this 4 stars because I don't know of anything equivalent that has a properly functioning function key. Otherwise I'd rate it much lower and switch in a minute.
