Overview

The TKO Tournament Keyboard is a powerful and premium compact keyboard designed for gaming, coding and conventional typing.

Standard 60% Layout

The TKO features a conventional standard 60% layout so all the important keys are right where you expect them for both gaming or typing. Lesser used keys are relocated to the embedded “Fn” layer to minimize the keyboards footprint for closer mouse placement. Access arrow keys and keypad actions without ever leaving the home row. Frequent Fn-Layer users can assign the Fn key to one of the 3 HyperSpace keys for unrivaled layer navigation. The smaller footprint makes the TKO ideal for portability and for closer mouse placement for improved ergonomics.

HyperSpace Triple Space Bar

Perhaps the greatest innovation found on the TKO is the unique HyperSpace modular space bar. Out of the box the TKO features 3 thumb keys instead of a single space bar. Each key performs space by default but can be independently programmed (in both layers) to perform a different action to boost your gameplay or productivity by 300%. We’ve assigned example actions to Profiles 2-9 for Gaming, Typing, and Coding just to give you some ideas but the possibilities are endless.

Just want a conventional Space bar? No problem, the TKO is fully-modular so you can quickly remove the HyperSpace keys and install the included full-size space bar in 60 seconds.

Hotswap Design

Unlike conventional keyboards, the key switches on the TKO are 100% removable for maximum customization and durability. Use the included extra switches to customize the feel of WASD or HyperSpace, or install your favorite brand of switches and make the TKO a one-of-a-kind.

Dual Zone RGB Lighting

Choose from a dozen RGB Backlighting effects including Wave, Spectrum, Rain, Ripple, Reactive and Rebound. Configure the subtle Edge lighting independently or match the Backlighting effect. And you can assign unique effects and colors to the Fn layer to help you navigate layers.

Premium Keycaps

The TKO keycaps are made from high-quality PBT plastic designed for an improved feel and sound, and best of all, they are shine-resistant. And since the legends are “double-shot” instead of printed or laser, they won’t wear off.

Ergonomic Zero-Degree Slope

Most conventional keyboards feature a 5 degree positive slope. This typing posture may feel familiar but its actuallly quite bad for your wrists and its made even worse if you use pop-up feet to increase the slope. The TKO features a natural zero degree slope to reduce keep your wrists to improve circulation and reduce the risk of repetitive strain injuries.

Learn More about Wrist Extension

We recognize that one-size does not fit all. So we’ve added two sets of SMALL LEGS to support 5 degrees of both positive and negative tilting so you can achieve that familiar feel of a conventionally sloped keyboard, or tilt the keyboard down if you have sensitive wrists.

Ergonomic Tenting

Tenting is a feature that has historically been reserved for those using a split keyboard. Tenting allows you to elevate the thumb-side of your hand to reduce harmful forearm pronation. The TKO features two additional set of BIG LEGS that allow both right and left handed gamers to experience the added comfort and stamina of tenting on a conventional one-piece keyboard. *Note: Tenting with the TKO is NOT recommended for conventional typing when both hands are on the keyboard. If you want to type in a tented configuration, checkout the Freestyle Edge RGB.
