Shallow Gasket-Mounted Bottom Foam
To reach a top typing experience, we have adopted a creative shallow gasket design, which is the first innovative shallow gasket structure around the world that comes with an all-in-one silicone pad. The silicone pad can cushion the shock under every keystroke by being inserted in between the PCB board and the plate. Foam at the bottom layer to reduce hallow sounds, and enhance the feeling of typing stokes.

Advantages: Very well built board! The wood is solid and very high quality. The gaskets and stabilizers are good, however I had to re-lube the space bar only. It is ergonomic but I would have like custom feet for different height options.
Disadvantages: The RGB lights are very dim. Even at max brightness with shine through keycaps the lights are barely noticeable. Skyloong claims the battery is 4000mAh, but the battery doesn't last more than a day with lights. I'd be inclined to say that the battery does not accurately represent 4000mAh.
Overall, I do enjoy this keyboard despite the disadvantages; it seems to be the best wooden keyboard on the market!
Thank you for your evaluation, welcome to come again.
Keyboard was well put together. Very impressed and would buy one again if needed!
keyboard is spectacular, the stabs are absolutely insane there isn’t any rattling or clicky sounds coming from the stabs and it auto connects bluetooth once paired after the first time. highly recommend with radiant red akko switches
