The long wait is over... finally there is a decent tactile low profile keyboard switch!

We call it the Sunset switch, and it is the first truly new Choc switch in years. Designed by LowproKB and manufactured by Kailh, the Sunset switch sets a new standard for low profile tactile switches.

This product is now IN STOCK! Orders usually ship in 24hrs.

The Sunset tactile switch uses a 40gf spring, and has a completely redesigned stem which produces the tactile bump and actuates the switch. It comes factory-lubed and ready to add to your keyboard project.

It is actually fairly difficult to produce a nice tactile feedback in a short-throw, low profile switch such as a Kailh Choc. This switch is the result of over a year spent iterating through designs trying to find the right balance. Working closely with Kailh engineers, we feel we have found the sweet spot, and think it will be enjoyed by those who love tactile key switches.

The tactile event (bump) of the Sunset switch can be described as "short and sweet", as it is technically impossible to make a smooth rounded bump on a switch with such a short travel. The switch activates just after the bump, but in practice, it feels essentially instantaneous. Check the feedback for some of our users reactions.

Switches sold in packs of 10.

If you like brown choc switches, even slightly, you’ll love these. Night and day.

Considerable Improvement over the choc browns!

Im new to choc switches. My Voyager came with choc browns and unlike most people, I love the mushy feel, but not the tactile force rate . These sunsets are a game changer for tactile feel on a low profile switch. The tactile sound is very satisfying. These will be a on for a while until the ambient ones are in my hands.

Thanks for your review! And good choice on the Voyager... we are fans of ZSA over here.

Some of the switches make click noises, the tactility is inconsistent on each switch, and the switches pop out with the key caps, despite being 5 pin. But they're still the best lowpro switches you can buy.

Thanks Jake! I think all chocs have variances, so that might not be avoidable, and switches being pulled with the keycaps may have more to do with keycap and switch plate design, than the switches themselves, but your feedback is appreciated.
