Footlong Freedom

Minimized form, maximized flexibility. The one pound body of Air60 carries a legacy going back to NuType F1, a chip capable of 1000Hz polling rate, and a mission to bring its ultimate connectivity and layer-based adaptability to the mobile devices.

DESIGN

Bask in the fresh Air

‘Less is more’ has been our mantra when it comes to designing, yet it demands us to make each change made to evolve our designs count. While the top frame of Air60 retains its minimalistic look (with the exception of one more color choice-Basalt Black), the bottom case has gone through fundamental yet subtle changes. Thanks to the improved laser texturing process, the bottom case is now both more transparent and finer textured, rendering the interiors of Air60 clearly visible, and play into its overall aesthetics.

The best iPad keyboard, only better. Light as Air, and powerful as Pro. Air60 V2 enhances NuPhy's 4-years tradition of supporting mobile computing devices, with unparalleled bluetooth/2.4G connection quality and speed. Our trio of the portable keyboard, device, and stand, can make you feel right in front of your desk, at any place of your choice.

Nimble yet stable. With the help of the improved AirFeet, the new Air60 can finds its natural habitat effortlessly on top of almost any laptop keyboard in the world. Small in size, it is also mindful to leave some space for the features(Touch ID etc.) usually located at the top of the panel for you to access.

LAPTOP COMPATIBILITY

The following laptop models have been found compatible with the “—” shape design of Air60 after testing.

WIRELESS PERFORMANCE

Polling way ahead
in the 1000Hz race

How far can we push extreme wireless performance and low latency into the thin & light realm? Does it even make sense to equip a 60% keyboard with some pro gamer grade 1000Hz stuff? But here we go, we have decided to put the wireless chip equivalent of a V12 engine under Air60's hood, because if we care about mobility we have to go all the way, and how can we let our road users miss out on all the fun?

Success in circuit lies. A 1000Hz polling rate may be eye-catching, yet actual latency depends on factors including MCU’s matrix scan rate, processing and debounce time, the wireless cache size etc. Never content with half measures, we support Nordic's state of the art NRF52810 SoC with STM32F072 MCU's high performance, and use an elaborate testing procedure to ensure minimized total trip delay.  

Truth by numbers told. We did some benchmarks on the new Air60’s latency performance, against its predecessor and another QMK-based keyboard. Suffice to say, we are both blown away by the results and happy to end the myth that low profile keyboards are unfit for professional gaming and low latency applications, once and for all. 

Connection Speed Comparison

* The latency tests are conducted with a CMSIS-DAP compliant hardware debug unit, by measuring the time difference between when the Enter key switch is closed, and the key press event is registered on the PC, and subtracting the instrument 's intrinsic delay(provided by the producer) from the measurement. The test results do not account for the pre-travel delays of the key switches, which varies for different types of switches, as the swtich circuits are closed electronically during the tests.

FIRMWARE

Create keybindings without bounds,
transform layouts VIA layers.

As much as we pride ourselves in building innovations and our own ideas into our products, we will have to make an exception for firmwares: all Airs of the new generation, including Air60 V2 will be shipped with QMK/VIA. We believe with the full realization of our hardwares' potential under the new firmware, its open source code, the endless key remapping, light customization and other creative possibilities VIA offers our users, the fun has truly started!

Mac, Windows, Linux...you name it. VIA's key remapping and macro work seamlessly on all major desktop platforms, or any that supports a browser, make it even easier to customize Air60 to your heart's content.

Virtual side of a physical switch. The Win/Mac mode switch, an integral part of all NuPhy keyboards since the original Air60, is now fully integrated with VIA's layers to make it more extensible and customizable, with the same convenience.

SYSTEM

Better OS/laptop compatibilities

Our OS-supporting and nativization effort evolves to adapt to the conditions of a QMK-based platform. The dedicated 'Spotlight', 'Dictation', and 'Do Not Disturb' shortcuts available in the newest MacOS are now implemented through QMK, and the F-keys replacement keycaps, debuted on Air96, have also came to Air60. We will continue to find more ways, and shortcuts, including building new hardwares, to bring extra values to our users on the software side.

KEYCAPS

A double-shot keycap
at half the thickness

Double-shot PBT keycaps are finally coming to Air60! With crisper texts, more vibrant colors, and record-beating thinness, you are bound to find it a lot more fun when styling your beloved Air with our extensive selection of double-shot keycap themes.

Dye it up a notch. If you care as much about thockness as the look, you will love our collection of Dye-sub keycaps, which outside of their great sound quality, also has durable legends thanks to the sublimation process.

Get the backlight to the front. Our new set of low profile shine-through keycaps is here, to be enjoyed with a dark room, a cup of hot coffee, or maybe, some menacing monsters going at you.

SOUND

Invisible but audible

Structure-borne sound engineering, increasingly recognized as vital to overall keyboard sound performance, is still almost unused among low profile keyboards outside of our Air96. The new Air60 built upon our successful implementation of plate poron hollow-sound absorption and IXPE PCB sound purification solution on Air96, while optimizing them for a smaller form factor, leading to an overall improvement in sound concentration and purity for switches. Additional attention is given to tune the spacebar in harmony with the rest of the keys, using silicone sound shaping tech derived from our acclaimed GhostBar.

NUPHY SWITCHES

More ingredients
in the switch’s brew

Our floral lineup of low-profile switches have been met with growing enthusiasm since their launch with Air96, and we have been busy experimenting with the secret recipe of ultra-long travel, high-precision mold, and pre-lubing, looking for ways to perfect it and give you more flavours. Taking a page from Gateron’s Baby Kangaroo, Moss is the first early bump tactile switch for low profile keyboards. If an extra spicy typing feel is your thing, Moss with its 16.5mm spring and only 0.6mm of bump distance shouldn’t be missed. Another change in the lineup is the revamped Daisy, now called Cowberry, whose pre-travel has been shortened to 1.2mm to enable rapid firing rate for gaming and all the non-gaming purposes that need it.

GATERON SWITCHES

Not so regular regulars

If you want to stick with your old, trusted red, blue, or brown colored friends, there is good news too. The veteran Gateron switches all got upgrades to the 3.2mm travel, high precision mold and enhanced pre-lubing in the new 2.0 version, for better tactile response and smoothness. The looks are also slightly modified to make them even more symbolic: the bottom casing now displays the true color of its PA66 material instead of being painted black.

HOT-SWAPPABLE

Switch. Swap. Swagger.

Each Air60 keyboard is hot-swappable, allowing you to easily replace or upgrade your switches without soldering and to enjoy a different typing experience free of restriction.
We also offer four bonus mechanical switches in the package. This enables different typing experiences as well as easy replacement of a damaged switch.

Light

Flowing backlight and sidelight

Inspired by the early MacBook battery indicator which was hidden inside the case when inactive, we added two RGB light bars on each side of the Air60 aluminum frame. The left sidelight shows the caps lock and connection mode, while the right sidelight bar indicates the battery level and system mode. When you activate the gradient light effect, the sidelights will illuminate your keyboard with an arresting glow.

The VIA clients and configuration page available on multiple OSes, can be used to create a near infinity of personalized lighting and color effects, maximizing Air60's RGB potential.

To configure your Air60 with the official VIA configurator please follow the instructions here.

    Right Shift Key is less problematic in v2, but keys infrequently get stuck

    I own the Air60 v1 and decided to upgrade to the v2 because I liked the ionic white colour scheme. The cowberry switches sound and feel great. My main issue with the v1 is the small right shift key, which causes a lot of misclicks even months after using the v1. Other reviewers have also mentioned the same issue. I decided to upgrade to the v2 despite this because the Air60 has both the arrow keys and delete key which are very useful and other 60% keyboards do not have these. Nuphy added a bump to the up arrow key in the v2, which helped with this issue. I purchased another keycap set that I liked, and swapped the right shift key for the up arrow key of that keyset, while taking out the keycap with the bump for the right arrow key. This means the right shift key now has a bump that helps to home my right pinky finger in when pressing the right shift key. It is not perfect (as the bump is quite far south on the key rather than in the middle, but it helps a decent amount.

    Unfortunately, my v2 has had a key stuck a few times, which keeps it activated even though the key is not being pressed. The only way to correct the error was to switch it off and on. This has happened about 3 times in the 1-2 months I've been using it. It is a bit concerning since the keyboard is new, and I've not had that issue with the v1 ever. This, plus the right shift key, is the reason for the 4 stars. I still like it a lot and have looked at many other keyboards but ended up choosing the v2, and have…

    The keyboard broke my expectations, I'm frustrated

    Many keys creak a little and it's irritating, I can't focus on the work because it confuses me with the sound. I can't use it anymore and should sell it.

    I used it for 1 week and noticed some keys creak a little, kind of creating friction between the plastic. I'm disappointed. The support didn't suggest advice with how to fix it, conversely gave me 10$ of compensation for the keyboard which I can't use anymore. The trust is broken and I'm even not sure that the new model will work fine.

    Maybe you will gift me a new one or at least 50% of the cost the new one? I think this is the only chance I can come back to you, 10$ of compensation didn't make a difference.

    I thought Nuphy is the best Keyboard, appears it's not.

    Although, I want to say many keys work fine, however those dozen ones

    We are sorry to hear about your frustrating experience with the keyboard. Here are some tips to address the issue:

    1. Cleaning: Remove dust and debris between the keys using compressed air or a soft brush.
    2. Lubrication: Apply a small amount of silicone-based lubricant to reduce friction on key hinges.
    3. Key Stabilization: Check and adjust stabilizer bars beneath larger keys if they're loose.
    4. Keycap Replacement: Consider replacing keycaps if cleaning and lubrication don't work.
      If the issue persists, please reach out to our support team for further assistance.

    Regarding your compensation, while we understand that $10 doesn't fully address the issue, it was intended as a gesture of goodwill. Your satisfaction is important to us. Please let us know how you'd like to proceed, and we'll do our best to help. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

    The Air60 V2 has been really good. Love it!

    Whole experience has been fantastic. It feels great and works really well.

    I really like the short throw clicky/tactile keys you get on mac laptops/low profile keyboards and so I found the Moss switches to be a great alternative that feel more like keys 'should' (I need a quite defined tactile bump response and so don't like linear). Moss does require a firm press so if you're lighter in touch you might prefer Wisteria (I would like to try a set to see if I prefer it as well, but I'm happy with this for now).

    Regarding keycap mods, I didn't see any different keycaps I wanted from NuPhy but found reports that 'XDA' profile keycaps might work on Air keyboards (since it's low profile, you can't put standard cherry Keycaps on it). It turns out that this DOES seem to be the case, as I got a set of 'Carbon' style clones off Aliexpress with a 'similar to XDA' profile (I can't be sure if they're the same) and they work perfectly (see pics). Note that you need to be careful to ensure that the width of the Shift/Alt and Spacebar match (6.25U is apparently what I bought and it works on Air60).

    It's a little bit of a squeeze with the NuFolio but it actually does snap shut with them attached.

    great keyboard

    This is my first mechanical keyboard. So far the feeling is quite pleasant. Of the minuses, I still haven’t gotten used to the fact that the right shift is small. I think it's a matter of time to get used to it. I would also like some kind of notification about low battery charge. A couple of times the keyboard died at the wrong moment. And the battery charge information in the widget on the Mac seems to show incorrect information
