Quite possibly your favourite linear switch once you actually have these in your hands!
These are an in-house linear switch design by AEBoards, with an ultra-smooth stem action.
They use the same materials as the R1.5 Naevies, with a custom mixed PE stem material proprietary to AEBoards and factory oiled springs.
Smooth stem with extended pole.
- Bottoms out a little bit earlier.
- Adds tolerances for keycaps with north facing switches.
- This stem mold is owned by AEBoards
Custom Mixed PE (MPE):
UHMWPE stems are one of the smoothest plastics around due to its very low coefficient of friction, however this material suffers from shrinkage rates. Our solution was to create a MPE that enables us to get smoothness and good shrinking rates.
We’re using a Panda derivative with 3 pins for our first run.
R1.5: Nylon Bottom, Polycarbonate Top
