Lychee Milk Tactiles are a medium tactile featuring an UHMWPE stem and full nylon housing. UHMWPE is a unique material with a lower coefficient of friction than POM. It’s a softer material that’s self-lubricating, and highly resistant to abrasion. Together these properties provide a smooth typing experience with a soft bottom and top-out sound. They’re also meant to be a V2 to our original Lychee Switches!

 

We hope you enjoy this treat! As part of our Fruit Milk Series of switches they will also include a free matching collectible milk bottle, and sticker for qualified orders!

 

What Improvements Have Been Made?

Updated Stem Molds

New stem molds have been created to account for UHMWPE’s malleable nature. The revised stems aim to reduce stem wobble and improve keycap fitment compared to the original Lychees.

 

Updated Springs

Gold plated 23mm long springs are now included in the switches to improve both sound and feel. These long springs provide a slightly higher initial force, steady force increase, and snappy return.

 

What Makes Our Lychee Milk Switches Special? 

Light-Moderate Tactility

Lychee Milk Tactiles feature a medium sized round tactile bump following almost no pre-travel and spanning a short distance. These characteristics combined with the lower coefficient of friction of UHMWPE provides for a gentle tactility.

 

Nylon Housing

Lychee Milk Switches feature nylon housings. Nylon is a common switch material often preferred for its acoustic properties. Generally, nylon switches provide a fuller deeper sound when the stem collides during a keystroke.

 

Custom Gold Plated Long Spring

Lychee Milk Switches feature custom made gold plated 23mm long springs to further reduce spring noise. The extended length means the springs will sit at a more compressed state translating to a higher initial weight, however, they will bottom out at a moderate 68g. This narrow window of operation between the initial weight and bottom out force results in a snappy typing experience.

 

UHMWPE Stem

The 13.0mm stem length of the Lychee Milk Tactiles allow for the side rails to collide with the bottom housing rather than the central pole. Coupled with the softness of UHMWPE this provides for a unique bottom-out sound and feel.

    I’m in love

    I’m a bit of a beginner to the keyboard scene but I absolutely love these. Not only is the packaging incredibly cute, the feel of the switches is on a whole different level to my old glorious pandas I was using for the past four years. These feel a little heavier, but have a very nice satisfying smoothness and almost cushiony feel when you bottom out compared to them. They feel very premium to type on and I highly recommend at least trying them!

    the sound is really nice, and the feel is great. for typing and general use I would definitely recommend this, for games that require precise timing inputs maybe not

    We Getting Out of the Linear Gange with this One

    Linear Gang representative here,

    I would describe the switches as :

    *Juicy : The bottom out feels like it is splashing under my fingers and has this poppy downstroke with a snappy upstroke. While there is a creaminess... I don't build my boards for marble or thock, so I get a lot more clack mileage out of these deeper switches.

    *Deep : The muted sound of the uhmwpe crashing into the nylon housing has this wide-feeling sound. I would not say it is entirely where I would want to be as someone who is a fan of loud boards, but is so satisfying because of the next point.

    *Chonky : There is a breadth to the sound. There are nice highs, mids, and lows coming out of this switch partly due to the tactile bump. While rocking some MT3's these sounds are are mostly mids and lows.

    My heart is skipping a beat as I hit these keys on my home row. I bought these (x30) to see if I would like the tactile experience more than my Akko Penguins or Gateron Browns, since tactiles typical make my fingers feel weird after a while of typing on them.

    Regretfully, I told a friend I would be gifting him some of these. I chose to give him enough to fill a numpad with: (x20). I am in love with what I think is a mid-tactility bump as they are more tactile than my Akko penguins and definitely more tactile than my Gateron browns.

    The deep and resonant sound from these in an Azio Cascade (75%) reminds me of when I put my Akko Matcha Greens into my first Surmen board (75%) which was (100%) plastic and 100% thocky as a first hotswap board.

    The uhmwpe stem feels oily and the color of the switches is a lot less prominent than in photos on my computer, but it is still that lychee red. Honestly, for something that is never coming out of my board I think the color is fine. The linear version of this switch is way more friendly to RGB than the tactile version due it being white.

    I would recommend these to someone who loves tactile and full-body-sounding switches. After playing and typing with these for a while with my Akko Penguins off home-row I think I will switch back to linears because my preference is as such.

    These are fine tactile switches. Not my favorite, but pretty darn good.
