Sunset Tactile Choc Switches
This product is a preorder item. Your order will ship once all items are in stock. This item is estimated to ship by July/August 2022 and will then be kept in stock.
The long wait is over... finally there is a decent tactile low profile keyboard switch!
We call it the Sunset switch, and it is the first truly new Choc switch in years. Designed by LowproKB and manufactured by Kailh, the Sunset switch sets a new standard for low profile tactile switches.
Estimated ship date at this point is late July 2022, barring unforeseen circumstances.

The Sunset tactile switch uses the spring from the 35g Choc Pro Red switch, and has a completely redesigned stem which produces the tactile bump and actuates the switch. It comes factory-lubed and ready to add to your keyboard project.
It is actually fairly difficult to produce a nice tactile feedback in a short-throw, low profile switch such as a Kailh Choc. This switch is the result of over a year spent iterating through designs trying to find the right balance. Working closely with Kailh engineers, we feel we have found the sweet spot, and think it will be enjoyed by those who love tactile key switches.
The tactile event (bump) of the Sunset switch can be described as "short and sweet", as it is technically impossible to make a smooth rounded bump on a switch with such a short travel. The switch activates just after the bump, but in practice, it feels essentially instantaneous. Those who had the opportunity to test prototypes, did not describe sensing a lag in actuation.
