Wind x98 by Wind Studio
WIND X98 is a fresh and flexible new keyboard from WIND Studio based on the excellent WIND X, featuring a modified 1800 layout and a plethora of options to customize your typing experience!
Brought to you by Wind Studio, WIND X98 is an aluminum gasket-mounted keyboard with a modified 1800 layout, based on the WIND X (65% + Numpad) with added function keys. Following the minimalist style of the WIND X, the board features a slender brass weight on the back and a brass accent above the arrow keys on top, as well as a multicoloured PVD ‘X’ logo on the front between the Escape key and the F-row to catch the eye.
The WIND X98’s internals utilize a gasket mount structure, sporting a split 1.5mm plate and split 1.2mm PCB with numerous ‘flex cuts’, allowing for a softer, more comfortable typing feel. Plates are available in a variety of materials – Aluminum, Carbon Fibre, FR4, Polycarb, and Brass – and include silicone gaskets that can be attached to the plate. As for connectivity, wired QMK (solder or hotswap PCB) and Bluetooth LDN version (hotswap PCB) keyboard kits are available to best suit your needs. Each WIND X98 keyboard also includes a kit of Gateron Ink stabilizers, as well as feet, a foam kit, and a 3-headed screwdriver that can be used for assembly.
WIND X98 is available in 8 different case colour combinations: Blue + Red, White + Pink, Grey + Chocolate, Black + Grey, Grey + Blue, Silver + Purple, Black + Orange, and White + Yellow. Combine your colour combination with an Aluminum, Carbon Fibre, FR4, Polycarb, or Brass plate and your choice of solderable, hotswap, or bluetooth hotswap PCB!
