Introducing the Sand Glass Ergo 70%, Fox Lab's latest innovation. Building on the success of our first Alice-layout keyboard, the Sand Glass 80%, we've streamlined the design to create a compact 70% variant—the "small sand glass". Featuring the same distinctive sand glass-inspired shape and frame, the Ergo 70% omits the F-row for a sleeker, more ergonomic experience that effortlessly combines style and functionality. Discover the perfect balance of form and function with the Sand Glass Ergo 70%.

Fox Lab Sand Glass Ergo 70%
The Sand Glass Ergo 70% boasts a captivating design that stays true to its sand glass inspiration, without unnecessary embellishments. With three-section partitioning and varying angles, the keyboard ensures seamless transitions and reduced gaps between keycaps. Enhance your ergonomic typing experience with a matching wrist rest featuring the elegant "沙漏" symbol—expertly crafted for both comfort and style.
The Sand Glass Ergo 70% features a striking three-layer design with contrasting colors for a rich visual hierarchy. The middle layer houses all wiring for easy installation, while the screwless bottom case offers a clean, minimalistic look. Enhanced by a shock-absorbing layer for a cushioned typing experience, the 8-degree typing angle and gasket design separating the plate and PCB ensures a soft, elastic feel with increased stability and horizontal proximity.
The Sand Glass Ergo 70% offers a refined design, achieved by adjusting width and length, and incorporating a compact key arrangement. This attention to detail creates a harmonious and unified layout that is both visually appealing and well-coordinated.
The plate still uses the hollowed-out design of 80%, but it is not so extreme, and more consideration is given to its consistency and stability.
