Kinesis KB360-PRO-GBR Advantage360 Professional Split Mechanical Keyboard

Product ID 19836

Description

The all new Advantage360 Professional features the same great ergonomics as the base model, but without all the cables. Connect wirelessly with up to 5 Bluetooth devices, and ditch the link cable for even more freedom of movement. The Pro uses the open source ZMK firmware for vast customization options for power-users.

As the market leader in computer ergonomics, Kinesis has been designing and building premium-grade ergonomic keyboards for more than 25 years. The all-new Advantage 360 features our patented Contoured keyboard design now in a fully split form factor for even more ergonomic adjustability.

Separate the two key modules to shoulder-width and rotate them to reduce painful ulnar deviation. And use the integrated tenting mechanism to choose from one of three heights to reduce forearm pronation.

The Advantage360 Professional features low-force tactile “brown” mechanical key switches and shine-through ABS plastic keycaps to support the optional white backlighting.

The Pro uses open source ZMK firmware so power users can customize their keyboard layout, add additional layers, and customize various settings and share them with the Kinesis community via the 3rd party GitHub platform.

Features

Concave keywells are scooped into a bowl shape to reduce hand and finger extension and relax muscles.
Separating the keywells positions the arms at shoulder-width to keep wrists straight and perpendicular to the home row to reduce abduction and ulnar deviation.
The keys are arranged in vertical columns (rather than staggered) to better reflect the natural motion of your fingers.
The two keywells are “tented” to moderately raising the thumb side of the hand. Tenting puts you in a more neutral, “handshake” posture and reduces the stresses caused by forearm pronation. Choose from one of three heights depending on your preferences.
The integrated palm supports reduce stressful bending of the wrists and provide a convenient place to rest your hands when you are not actively typing. Add the new premium pads for even more support (AC360PP Sold Separately).
The thumb clusters include frequently-used keys such as Enter, Space, Backspace, and Delete to redistribute the workload away from your relatively weaker and overused little fingers to stronger thumbs.
The Advantage360 may look big, but it actually has a smaller footprint than most keyboards because we eliminated the numeric 10-key so you can place the mouse closer to your body, reducing painful “over-reach”.
Functions keys are located in the number row and accessed via the Fn Key for reduce reach and enhanced portability.
Mechanical Key Switches
The Advantage360 Professional utilizes the Gateron Brown stem low-force tactile key switches. “Tactility” is a slightly elevated force around the midpoint of the stroke of the key which lets you know the switch is about to be activated. A tactile response is preferred by many ergonomists, because it cues your fingers that activation is about to occur and can reduce the frequency of “bottoming out” the switch with a hard impact.
