Sunset Tactile Choc Switches

Regular price $7.75

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.

Just perfect

After years of using browns and many tests with several other switches these were my final choice, the firm bump provides the necessary feedback without being clicky.

These are much louder than browns, almost clicky. I had to take them off and put them away after one day of use. Not my cup of tea I guess. No complaints about the quality though.

Love the tactile bump on these switches. About as close to a love child between the Apple keyboard and an MX brown

These are great to type on. Well worth it!

My favorite Choc v1 switch so far, much more defined tactility than the original Brown/Orange Choc v1s, and doesn't sound as rattley as the other ones.
