About Protag

The Protagonist, by Wired In, is a 60% keyboard designed with modularity and a modern, minimalist aesthetic, in mind.

Endless possibilities.
Infinite value.

With a three dimensional "Keyframe", the possibilities are virtually endless. Between exchanging the 'Keyframe' for different layouts, different material options, as well as in-house Cerakote colors; there is no limit to the level of personalization.

The Protagonist will start at $399 (subject to change).

Key Features

The Protag, for short, is mounted with a leaf spring semi-proprietary grommet system that is customizable via varying gasket hardness. This allows for a beautiful sound profile right out of the box with the ability to perfectly tailor it to your typing preference.

RGB Underglow

Tons of RGB LEDs underneath the PCB for a smooth transition between colors and a gorgeously diffused underglow.


We prioritized what matters most. With very experienced engineering, this board sounds and feels just as good, or better, than the best of them.
