MOUNTAIN introduces the "world's first" 60% keyboard with modularity and mechanical switches
MOUNTAIN has debuted its new Tactile 55, Linear 45 Speed and Linear 45 switches with its latest keyboard, which, despite being 60%, has arrow keys as standard. The Everest 60 can thus be configured with a set of either of these 3 types. However, as the stabilizers underneath them are from Cherry, the user can also replace them with a choice of any 3- or 5-pin switch from this brand.
On the other hand, MOUNTAIN asserts that the stock switches will keep any gamer happy: they are apparently hand-finished at the OEM's factory for a pleasing sound and action. The Everest 60 is touted as more customizable yet, as it is compatible with not 1 but 10 different sets of new PBT keycap sets.
Therefore, the buyer could opt for 1 of the company's new colorways (from plain black to dual bubblegum-hued "Quartz") or mix and match between the OEM's new "extremely durable" cap options. Then again, should the user opt to bundle a new Everest 60 with its detachable, either-handed numberpad, it apparently comes in the same colors as the main set.
The Everest 60 ships to European customers at prices of between €139.99 (~US$151) and €209.99 (~$227), depending on the mix and match of options as above.
