Key features

Adjustable Split

Tenting

Low Profile

Compact Design

Separate the modules to shoulder-width to keep wrists straight. 

Tenting accessories enable 5, 10, and 15 degrees to reduce forearm pronation caused by flat keyboards.

Zero-degree slope and available cushioned palm supports eliminate wrist extension.
Tenkeyless layout results in a smaller footprint for closer mouse placement. * PC USB includes embedded 10-key.

Low Force Keys

8 Office Hotkeys

Adjustable Splay

Vertical Tenting

Custom membrane key switches offer tactile feedback and 25% lower activation force than traditional keyboards.

Boost productivity and eliminate awkward key combinations with convenient hotkeys for Windows or Mac.
Connect the pivot tether to splay the key modules to achieve a neutral wrist angle to eliminate ulnar deviation.
For individuals with special needs, the Ascent accessory supports tenting from 20 to 90 degrees.

Sleek, low profile design

Most keyboards, including ergonomic models, have a 10 degree positive slope from front to back. These designs tend to bend your wrists. 

The Freestyle2 has a zero degree slope which minimises the height, effectively creating negative slope and reducing wrist extension.

Accommodates a wide range of individuals

From small to tall and body types in between, the Freestyle2 allows for maximum flexibility catering to each individual’s unique needs.

Out of the box both modules are connected together by a flexible pivot tether allowing an infinite range of splay. Disconnecting the pivot tether allows up to 20cm of complete separation of both left and right keying modules.

Perfect for individual needs ranging from a narrow footprint to complete separation. This design greatly reduces and or/eliminates ulnar deviation.

Low-force, tactile key switches

The Freestyle2 utilises a quiet, low-force, tactile membrane key switch. The typical average maximum key force of a switch is 45 grams. This is at least 25% less than most traditional and many ergonomic keyboards such as the Microsoft 4000 with maximum key forces of over 60 grams.

2-Port 2.0 USB hub

The 2-port 2.0 USB hub enables you to easily connect other input devices such as mice without having to access USB ports on your computer.

Driverless hot keys and Bluetooth Multichannel keys

Driverless hot keys for commonly used mouse actions. (Internet Page Forward and Back, Undo, Web Home, Cut, Copy and Paste). A vertical rib is located on the inside row of hot keys to provide tactile notification to the user.

Standard key layout

Familiar key layout provides for minimal adaptation time.
