Sunset Low Profile Switches
Designed by LowproKB and manufactured by Kailh, the Sunset switch sets a new standard for low profile tactile switches.
The Sunset tactile switch has a completely redesigned stem which produces the tactile bump and actuates the switch. It comes factory-lubed and ready to add to your keyboard project.
It is actually fairly difficult to produce a nice tactile feedback in a short-throw, low profile switch such as a Kailh Choc. This switch is the result of over a year spent iterating through designs trying to find the right balance. Working closely with Kailh engineers, we feel we have found the sweet spot, and think it will be enjoyed by those who love tactile key switches.
The tactile event (bump) of the Sunset switch can be described as "short and sweet", as it is technically impossible to make a smooth rounded bump on a switch with such a short travel. The switch activates just after the bump, but in practice, it feels essentially instantaneous. Check the feedback for some of our users reactions.
