KBO-5000 - Split Staggered 80% Keyboard


Split keyboard based off of the G80-5000 split keyboard. Features a macro left column and dedicated navigation cluster.

PCB Kits and Plate Kits are sold separately, so unless you are having your own case/plates made, you will need both a PCB kit and Plate kit.

Looking for an acrylic case to go along with the PCBs and plates? Visit P3D Store for their KBO-5000 Acrylic Case to really make your board shine!
