Angle is a TKL/80% custom keyboard kit designed by the beloved Chinese custom keyboard shop - Vertex Studio. They have spent over a year polishing the design to perfect every single aspect of Angle. With Angle R1's overwhelmingly high demand in the Chinese custom keyboard community, we are thrilled to collaborate with Vertex and bring Angle to the international market.

We are collaborating with China's No.1 Customize Keyboard Studio Matrix Lab to bring their premium coating technology to Angle.

Each keyboard kit will be shipped in its own shipping box.
As pandemic greatly increased the international shipping cost, we work with a group of shipping partners in China to optimize our delivery cost globally. They will choose the regional shipping partner based on real time shipping cost quote, which means the delivery company would be different over time. So we can’t say for sure at this point which local shipping company will handle your package.
We pay the import tax through them, and whenever possible our shipping partners would clear customs for the recipient.
We are not making any profit from the shipping.

Q: Why R1's Bianco/E-white is not supported?
A: Bianco is e-white and it is using another coloring technology (electrophoresis). Adding additional coloring technology will greatly increase the difficulty of production.
Q: If I buy Extra Angle PCB, does it come with another daughterboard?
A: Unfortunately, daughterboard can not be purchased separately and does not come with PCB. However, Angle is using ai03 unified daughterboard. You may be able to find an aftermarket version as alternative.

A: Yes. Internal Badge is available for customize at here
