Portico Keyboard

$189 AUD

Welcome to your gateway into mechanical keyboards. Portico is our entry-level keyboard designed to give you the perfect balance between form and function. It has a polycarbonate case and a compact 65% keyboard layout.

🌟 Hotswap PCB – No soldering! It's easy to build the keyboard and change switches when you want.

🛠️ Assembly Required – Building the Portico will take you 60–90 minutes. We've designed this to be a perfect starting place if you've never built a keyboard before. We've created a Build Tutorial with photos to walk you through every step.

⚠️ Switches and keycaps are not included. You'll need to buy these separately.
