Gateron Double-Rail Magnetic Hall Effect Switches

With the first invented dual-rail structure, extended tube structure design, and the special pre-lubed, these switches ensure unparalleled stability and smoothness like never before.

Installed with an optimal magnetic sensor with a sensitivity of only 0.1 mm, it offers more precious feedback. You can customize actuation points and assign multiple actions to a single key based on the travel depth you personalized, enhancing gameplay and providing a customized typing sensation.

Adjustable Actuation Point

Customize each key with ultra-precise 0.1 mm sensitivity and adjustable actuation points ranging from 0.1 to 4.0 mm. Setting the actuation point to 0.8mm or 1.0mm shortens the trigger and increases sensitivity. The reset occurs once you release the key, ensuring a faster response.

Dynamic Rapid Trigger

Activate or deactivate keys based on travel distance rather than fixed points. They activate precisely upon pressing and deactivate upon letting go, allowing for immediate repetition of keystrokes in mod-motion. This enables you to execute a chain of actions in quick succession during gameplay.

Multiple Actions, One Keystroke

Assign four actions to a single key based on the depth of your press. For example, lightly press a key to walk forward in a game, and press deeper to run. Additionally, releasing the key also supports two-stage settings. This allows for smoother, personalized combinations that can give you an edge in competitive gaming.

A Piece Of Metal Art

The entire metal body is crafted from 6063 aluminum, a material known for its increased durability, stability, and premium feel. Not only is this aluminum more resistant to physical damage, wear, and tear, but it is also environmentally friendly and recyclable. These qualities ensure both aesthetic appeal and a commitment to sustainability.

Customize Every Part

To build a fully customizable keyboard, we designed every component to be able to assemble easily. Therefore, you can customize and adjust each component as you wish.

Structure ofKeychron Q1 HE QMK Wireless Custom Keyboard

Double-Gasket Design

Silicone pads between the top and bottom cases reduce acoustic resonance, maintaining gasket flexibility and enhancing typing sound. The keyboard's bottom has an acoustic pad, improving sound quality with a slight impact on flexibility. Users seeking more flexibility can opt to remove the acoustic pad.

An Epic Core Inside The Keyboard

Engineered with a powerful chip (MCU) with 256K flash and QMK open-source firmware to provide more flexibility for developers. The polling rate is 1000 Hz out of the box in Type-C wired mode and 2.4 GHz mode, which greatly helps when competitively gaming.

Suitable for All Devices

Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, the Q1 HE comes with a system toggle and an additional set of customized keycaps for both Windows and macOS systems. You can now save two different layouts on the keyboard, one for each system.

OSA Profile Double-shot PBT Keycaps

It has a similar height to that of the OEM profile and has an SA-like shape. We named it the OSA (OEM spherical angled) keycap. The PBT keycaps will provide excellent oil resistance, enhance the type feel, and prevent the legends from fading out.


The hot-swappable sockets are mounted on the PCB, so you can install or change the switches without soldering. The PCB supports both 3 pin and 5 pin MX mechanical switches.

South-facing RGB LED Lights

The south-facing RGB is designed to better illuminate the keyboard backlight from the typist’s angle with the premium non-shine-through PBT keycaps installed. The south-facing RGB is also free from interference when the user installs Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on their keyboard.

All New Screw-In PCB Stabilizers

All New Screw-In PCB Stabilizers

The screw-in design increases stability and makes it easier for changes and upgrades. Precise craftsmanship makes the stabilizers more stable and less wobbly. The big keys’ (space bar, shift, enter, delete) typing experience is now more stable and smooth.
