Kinesis Advantage2 LF Contoured Linear Feel USB Keyboard for PC and Mac

Linear feel switch technology provides a smooth, consistent keystroke action

Enjoy a comfortable and ergonomic typing experience for the ages.

When your workday requires the use of a computer for multiple hours a day, give yourself tools that help you keep your arms, shoulders, and body in alignment for safer typing throughout the day. This quiet keyboard is great for open work environments where background noise is a reality, it's a great solution to help keep ambient noise levels down and help your employees maintain better focus.

The keyboard features a consistent force throughout the full stroke of the key, so there's no tactile feedback unless the switch bottoms out. And thanks to having no “peak” or tactile force, the total effort required to reach the activation force of 45 gm is slightly less than Kinesis keyboards with the tactile (brown stem) switch.

The Advantage2 LF Keyboard includes 2 MB of onboard memory, offering the space for more than one hundred macros. Create your own macros to replace repetitive key strokes and then share them with friends as a text file. Advantage2 uses generic HID (human interface device) drivers provided by the operating system. It can be operated and programmed without any special drivers in most environments supporting USB devices, including the following operating systems with an available USB port.


  • Linear feel switch technology provides a smooth, consistent keystroke action that's ideal for gaming
  • Concave key wells and 20° lateral-tilt design encourage a relaxed typing posture that prevents hand and finger extension
  • Vertical key layout repositions keys in columns designed around the natural range of motion of your fingers
  • Custom hotkey layouts open up your keyboard to an efficient world of possibilities
  • Integrated palm support and reduced physical footprint improves typing posture
  • Onboard memory provides 2 MB of space for 100+ macros
  • Programmable onboard memory allows for remapping of keys and can be switched between QWERTY and DVORAK modes without any loss of function

Numeric Keypad

Use the Kinesis Low-Force Numeric Keypad for quick and easy data entry. Featuring the same low-force keys as the Kinesis Advantage2 Keyboard, as well as four hot keys and two USB ports, this is a handy addition to your workstation.


Kinesis Foot Switch

Single Action Foot Switch

This simple, textured foot pedal can be programmed to provide quick and easy access to common keyboard functions. Compatible with all Kinesis Advantage2 keyboards, this foot pedal can be anchored to the floor with the included self-adhesive hook and loop tab.

Triple Action Foot Switch

The triple action pedal provides even more functionality for your Kinesis Advantage2 keyboard. This pedal can be configured to activate any user-defined macro or keystroke.


Jar Opener

Don't let a jar of pickles, olives, or your grandmother's jam cause pain or injury. Trying to open a stubborn jar requires high hand forces which lead to unnecessary strain. A jar opener decreases the grip strength necessary to open the often-stuck jar. Keep your hands safe with an UPLIFT jar opener, free with your purchase.

    Great keyboard! Well worth the effort and investment

    Posted by Alan on Mar 19th 2014

    This is a very well designed keyboard. The Advantage layout is a proven design of Kinesis and after using it for a month, I appreciate the work they've done with it. Given the unique design, there may be a bit of a struggle when you first use it, often you will be pressing the wrong keys, but you'll eventually adjust and recover your typing speed after a month or so. With proper use, my wrist pain has been minimized so I would recommend this for professional use. The linear keys are also very welcome reducing stress on the keypresses and the hardware based macros are also very useful particularly for programming.

    The only minor thing that detracts from this keyboard would be the seemingly shoddy top function keys especially in comparison with the mechanical switches used with the rest of the keyboard.

This product comes standard with a 3-year warranty.
