The V5 is a fully customizable 96% mechanical keyboard and a great introduction to the custom keyboard world. With its compact 96% layout to save your space efficiently while retaining the function keys and numpad, QMK/VIA support, acoustic silicone pad, and double-shot PBT keycaps, the V5 is designed for excellent typing comfort and productivity.
**Note: the Barebone edition does NOT include any switches or keycaps**
All Around Customizable
Every component has been conveniently assembled so you can customize and adjust every part the way you want.
Designed to enhance your creative workflow, the premium rotary encoder allows you to customize your favorite keys and macros through the innovative VIA software with ease. You can easily customize the V5's knob to your desired key or macro commands like zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, brush size, volume, selecting video clips or photos, or backlight hue.
The V5 hot-swappable PCB allows you to easily swap out switches without disassembly and de-soldering, so you can use your favorite switches or try out new switches without the risk of damaging the keyboard. The PCB supports both 3 pin and 5 pin MX mechanical switches.
Gateron Screw-In PCB Stabilizers
The screw-in design increases stability and makes it easy for changes and upgrades. More precise craftsmanship makes the silver-plated stabilizers more stable and less wobbly. The big keys’ (space bar, shift, enter, delete) typing experience is more stable and smooth and rattling is significantly reduced.
South Facing RGB
A unique RGB feature where the LED’s are located at the bottom of the switch rather than the top, which make them appear brighter because they are facing the typer. It’s also good for the PBT, Cherry profile, and non-shine-through keycaps which are popular for customized keycaps.
Sound Absorbing Foam
The V5 features a sound-absorbing form that reduces vibration and drastically improves sound signature.
Silicone Acoustic Pad
Apart from the sound-absorbing foam, the V5 also features a silicone pad between the PCB and bottom cases to significantly reduce the sound resonance between the metals and reduce the noise of the impacted metals.
Mac OS and Windows Support
Built with the Mac users experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices. It also allows you to save two different layouts in the keyboard, one for each system.
QMK and VIA Support
With full QMK and VIA support, you can program and remap each key on the keyboard with ease. The open-source firmware means endless possibilities for keyboard layouts, shortcuts, backlight effects, and more.

The fully-assembled version of the Keychron V5 comes pre-built with Double Shot PBT keycaps and it includes additional Mac and Windows-specific keycaps. The OSA profile has a similar height to that of the OEM profile and has an SA-like shape. The PBT keycaps will provide excellent oil resistance, enhance the type feel, and prevent the legends from fading out.
