As a gamer, the right setup can make a world of difference when it comes to taking on the competition. Take your gaming to the next level with the KinesisGaming Freestyle Edge Split Ergonomic Gaming Keyboard. Place the two halves of the keyboard close together for a more traditional keyboard experience, or split the keyboard with up to 20 inches of separation. You can even move one half of the keyboard out of the way completely to make room for a mouse if your gaming only requires the use of the keys on one side.
This ergonomic gaming keyboard has it all - form and function. The sleek black keyboard features blue backlighting for visibility even in the darkest of conditions. Detachable plastic wrist supports mimic the low-profile design of the keyboard while offering support for your wrists. The Freestyle Edge Split Gaming Keyboard places your hands at a zero-degree slope to keep your wrists in a neutral position. Add the optional Lift Kit to tent the keyboard at a 5, 10, or 15-degree angle to eliminate the forearm pronation that has become standard with traditional keyboards.
The Freestyle Edge Split Gaming Keyboard is plug-and-play, getting you back in the game in no time. The Kinesis SmartSet App comes pre-loaded for Windows users. This application lives in the keyboard, doing away with downloadable drivers. Configure the keyboard to your exacting taste to increase your keying efficiency based on the game at hand. Mac users may download the SmartSet App to enjoy the same functionality.
The cherry on top? The Freestyle Edge Split Gaming Keyboard features 100% Cherry Mechanical Switches. Choose between brown, red and blue Cherry MX Switches for a keyboard that provides the tactile feedback you desire for faster, more accurate typing.

Take your gaming to new heights without putting strain on your wrists and forearms with the Lift Kit. This attachment tents the Freestyle Edge Split Gaming Keyboard at 5, 10, or 15 degrees. Tenting the keyboard halves at an angle, will reduce the unnatural forearm pronation that comes with a traditional keyboard. If a 15-degree angle is too jarring to type on at first, you can start with only 5 degrees and work your way up.
The Lift Kit is extremely stable at all angles, so there will be no bounce while you are gaming at high speeds. Game ergonomically with the Lift Kit on your Freestyle Edge Split Gaming Keyboard.
Please note - The Lift Kit is the only kit that works with the Freestyle Edge Split Gaming Keyboard and will not work with other Kinesis keyboards. Lift Kit requires wrist rests (included with keyboard) to be attached to the keyboard.
The Freestyle Edge Split Gaming Keyboard comes with detachable plastic palm supports. Most users will enjoy the added comfort of cushioned palm pads. These cushioned pads are covered in a silky, Lycra fabric and feature close-cell foam for a gel-like feel. They are easily removable, if need be.
Convert your Freestyle Edge Split Ergonomic Gaming Keyboard to be used specifically with a Mac. Easy to install and include a keycap puller.
Please Note: After switching your keycaps you must use the SmartSet App or onboard programming to reconfigure your keyboards actions to match the keycaps.
Textured WASD and Arrow keycaps help improve your performance and comfort during gameplay. The texture and shape of these rubberized caps allows you to quickly locate them by touch alone. This allows you to keep your eyes on the game and never lose your place on the board.
