Looking like a cross between an Alice and a tented ergo board, and using the same design language as their Blade 60%, this Mountain kit definitely has a striking visual presence - but that’s not why it has my attention.
This sort of board is usually comfortably outside of my wheelhouse, but I recently became aware that one of my old friends might benefit from something like this. I forget her title, but she processes medical cases and typing is a big part of her job. Apparently she cruises at 160 wpm on an ergo dome abomination of some kind - probably not the exact model but something like this:
I’d already customized a keeb for her bro a while back, and she gave it a try on a recent visit. While she didn’t care about the RGB, she did appreciate the Gazzew stem frankenswitches in it.
Since then, I’ve had my eyes open for a decent keeb that would be familiar enough to what she’s been using while also being a decent mech. I considered split boards, but ultimately thought that might be a little bit too much departure from comfortable territory.
Say all that to say this:
Ergo folks out there - how does this kit look to you?
I’ve seen KBDFans hit home-runs and absolutely whiff the ball almost back-to-back, and I know basically nothing about what an ergo board should be like, so I’d definitely appreciate the input of anyone with some experience in this corner of the keeb realm.
