UNIQUE AND RETRO 60% LAYOUT
The Q60 is a fully customizable mechanical keyboard that has a unique 60% layout. It has a mini design that only keeps the essential keys on the keyboard. However, you can still access any function keys through key combinations. The Q60 comes with a complete aluminum CNC machined body, double-gasket design, and QMK/VIA support, all designed for a minimal desk setup and premium typing comfort.
A Refined Piece Of Metal Art
The entire metal body is crafted with 6063 aluminum that is processed through CNC machined, polished, anodized, sandblasted, and undergoes 24 more manufacturing stages to make this solid metal piece of art that is the Q60.
Outfitted the unique Q60 board with a retro-style color scheme looks as good in the office as it does in the game room.
All-Around Customizable Keyboard
To build a fully customizable keyboard, we designed every component easily assembled. Therefore, you can customize and adjust each component you want.
Special Extra Keycaps
Q60 is equipped with special extra keycaps, two "System" Keycaps, for the Windows system to better satisfy your needs.
The Double Gasket Design is a new innovative structure in the industry. In addition to the gaskets on the plates, we added silicone pads between the top and bottom cases to significantly reduce the sound resonance between the metals and reduce the noise of the impacted metals. This design allows the keyboard to maintain the flexibility of the gasket structure and improves the overall typing sound.
An Epic Core Inside The Keyboard
A powerful ultra-low-power ARM architecture MCU equipped with 128K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers. The polling rate is 1000 Hz right out of the box, which makes the latency hardly noticeable even in competitive games.
Cherry Profile Dye-Sub PBT Keycaps
Q60 comes in Cherry Profile for a classic feel and features dye-sublimated technology that ensures the legends are beautifully printed on the keycaps, while the legends will not shine or wear out for decades. And it's fully compatible with MX mechanical switches.
Switch layouts between macOS & Windows
Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility with Windows devices, the Keychron Q60 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.
Designed to enhance your creative workflow, the aluminum rotary encoder allows you to easily customize your favorite keys and macros on the knob through the VIA software.
You can easily customize the Q65's knob to your desired key or macro commands such as: zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, brush size, volume, selecting video clips or photos, or backlight hue.

Program Q60 with QMK & VIA
With full QMK and VIA support, you can easily program and remap each key on the keyboard. The open-source firmware means endless possibilities for keyboard layouts, shortcuts, backlight effects, and more.
Get the Q10 keymap working on VIA
Since the VIA code for the Q10 is still awaiting approval from Github, it is not yet automatically recognized, you will need to manually download and import the Q10 keymap.
To get started, please follow the steps: Download the appropriate keymap JSON file below, open VIA, turn on "Show Design tab" on "Settings" tab, and drag the JSON file into the “Design” tab on VIA to get the Q10 keymap working on VIA.

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 LED 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 users install OEM or Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on the keyboard.
Pre-lubed Gateron G Pro Switch
By optimizing the switch mold, the G Pro switch wobbles less than a standard mechanical switch and feels smoother on each hit. Plus, the factory pre-lubed process on all the G Pro switches (exclude the clicky ones), no doubt this will ensure the best smoothness at your fingertips when typing.
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 shaky. The big keys’ (space bar, shift, enter, backspace) typing experience is now more stable and smooth. The Keychron Q60 also supports third-party screw-in PCB stabilizers.
ANSI & ISO layouts.
ISO layout is widely used in Europe while the ANSI layout is widely used by the rest of the world.
Note: If you live in Europe, we recommend you to purchase the "Barebone ISO” version with the corresponding ISO keycaps. The "Barebone ISO” is suitable for all ISO keyboard countries like the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, etc.
