MONOKEI has taken everything they know about mechanical keyboards so far and spent more than six hundred days working, prototyping, tweaking every detail to create a mechanical keyboard that combines the best of custom kits and their desire for an input device that's easy to use everyday.

This is the MONOKEI Standard, the keyboard for all of us.


Quiet Does It:

The Standard includes acoustic tweaks and options for all scenarios. 


Rated C for Comfortable

The Standard is designed for long hours of typing. The polycarbonate plate supported by strips of gaskets cushions your typing while providing firm feedback.


Look Ma, No Wires

Go wireless or wired. The MONOKEI Standard connects wirelessly so you can switch quickly between all your devices. Use it on the go for up to 30 days.


Buy once, use forever

Switch it up anytime you want! The MONOKEI Standard comes with hotswap sockets so that you can switch out for a new switch, or swap for a new Series 1 keycap release. The keyboard comes with Series 1 doubleshot PBT keycaps, meticulously designed for longevity and an amazing typing experience.


Sama sama, but different

The MONOKEI Standard is a continuation of mechanical keyboards we’ve been working on, starting with the Kei and Hiro and culminating with the MONOKEI Standard.
