The Protagonist, by Wired In, is a premium 60% mechanical keyboard that feels and sounds exceptional. It features a simple yet elegant design and places a strong emphasis on customization through our proprietary 'Keyframe' accent system. The 'Keyframe' system enables easy swapping of layouts and color schemes, offering incredible value, especially when combined with add-ons within our ecosystem.

Our mission

Deliver a highly customizable product that doesn't sacrifice quality or acoustics no matter which option you go with. It really is that simple.

MOUNTING

With three hardness options, you're able to dial in the perfect amount of bounce. The gaskets are complemented by the leafspring plate that marries comfort and top shelf acoustics without the need for foam. However, if you prefer foam, it is available for additional tweaking.

PCB & DAUGHTERBOARD

The PCB, designed by Gondolindrim, is a beautiful white 1.6mm PCB made with black FR4, that reveals itself as a border. It has over 30 RGB LEDs (off by default) that creates a gorgeous underglow made to shine, diffused, through any polycarbonate components. Both hotswap and solder PCBs will be available during the group buy and are QMK and VIA compatible.

The daughterboard is also black using a traditional JST cable as we find EZ Mate to be frustrating without any upside to its implementation.

PLATE

 A single plate covers all available layouts with additional cutouts, especially around the spacebar, to accomplish the best possible acoustics. These decisions were the result of vigorous trial and error and what lead to excluding the option for a 6.25u spacebar. 
The grommet system that fits the gaskets with customizable hardnesses emulates a leaf spring (excluding FR4, Polycarbonate, and Polypropylene), joining the two mounting systems to create an extremely pleasurable typing experience with the perfect amount of flex.  

  • Plate material options:
  • Aluminum
  • Polycarbonate
  • Polypropylene
  • Carbon Fiber
  • POM
  • FR4
  • Copper
