TKD was founded by VERTEX and EQUALZ five months ago (Nov 2022), and while we've been working on our projects together, we've been talking about keyboard customization as much as we did when we first met.
"I love typing."
"Impressed by certain design details."
"Various combinations and customizations always surprise me."
It's "simple joy."
We named the first product "Cycle", which reminds us of the way we came and our passion. At the same time, we hope to bring this enthusiasm to everyone who loves custom keyboards through our products.
Introducing Cycle 7, a 70%/FRL layout kit that aims to present an entry-level customized kit that focuses on quality and practicality.
Compared to the TKL size, this design eliminates the entire F area, resulting in a more streamlined overall keyboard shape. Except that there is no default F area, the key configuration remains almost identical to that of a 65% layout which also guarantees practicability. Cycle 7 features an upper and lower case quick-release ball-catch structure that provides customers with easy and fast flexibility for mixing and matching.
