Air96 is coming with both light bars blazing! Let's cut to the chase: we know you want an specs maxed out Air with Air's ultra-mobility, and we want it too. So here it is, a realization of NuPhy's pioneering design concepts leveraging the most sophisticated materials and production techniques, we have built the most powerful low-profile keyboard to date.

An air of sophistication.

Ultra-slim aluminum frame, matte bottom, and gloss finish nameplate, Air96 has retained the classic elements of the Air design. But don’t be fooled by the simplicity of its look, beneath which we have introduced the super adaptable two-piece foot stand adjustable to three different typing angles, for maximum typing comfort in any environment. The iconic Ionic White color and the electrophoresis coating process that made it possible on the Halo series are also coming to Air96, making it the Air with the most refined and polished look so far.

PRODUCT SIZE

Triple the juice,
for a full tri-mode experience.

We don’t mind padding stats, if they mean genuinely improved user experience. Equipped with a not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4000mAh battery that beats competitors by a factor of 2, and comparable to high-profile keyboards, Air96 just keeps going, be it multi-tasking on 4 different Mac/Windows devices, or heavy-duty editing and gaming, on a 2.4 GHz low latency connection.

Native dual-OS support as a process.

As operating systems keep evolving, so does our effort to support them. To enable a more immersive Mac use experience, not only have we made the dedicated ‘Spotlight’, ‘Dictation’ and ‘Do not Disturb’ keys available in the newest MacOS accessible on Air96 after simple configurations, we have also built Mac-only Launchpad/Do not Disturb F6 replacement keycaps for you to choose. We will continue to find more ways, and shortcuts, including building new hardwares, to bring extra values to our users on the software side.

A double-shot keycap at half the thickness.

Double-shot PBT keycaps are finally coming to Air! 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.

And if you are more of a sound than a look guy who prices thockiness above all else, we would strongly recommend you to have a look, or listen at our equally impressive collection of COAST Twilight, COAST Dawn and other themed Dye-sub PBT keycaps!

Nothing short of switchcraft.

NuPhy’s close cooperation with Gateron has continued to bear fruits-and flowers, meet Aloe (Linear, 37gf), Daisy (Linear, 48gf) and Wisteria (Tactile, 55gf), a new generation of switches low in profile but set the bars high in pretty much anything else. Not only has the travel been extended to a jaw-dropping 3.2mm, only a few tenths of a mm from what is seen on high profile switches, the smoothness and force feedback both receive significant boosts, thanks to the high precision mold and the upgraded 16.5mm spring, respectively. The widely acclaimed Gateron pre-lubrication is also fine-tuned to complement Air96 acoustically and tactilely. Suffice to say, a revolutionary low-profile typing experience now awaits at your fingertips.

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.

Switch. Swap. Swagger.

Each Air96 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 six bonus mechanical switches in the package. This enables different typing experiences as well as easy replacement of a damaged switch.

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 Air96 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 backlight of Air96 has more than 10 different color effects, which can be easily changed using key combination. Through Windows software, you can even limitlessly customize lighting effects.

Monochrome, many choices.

It wouldn't truly be Mono if there is no black. Acrylic Noir now joins Acrylic Frosted and Beech in the family to to provide elevated levels of comfort for those long typing sessions, and a perfect blend-in with Air96's Lunar Gray stylish coolness.

    My first Mechanical Keyboard

    Well done Nuphy! This is my first mechanical keyboard and I can not imagine that it can get any better. I wasnt ready to go full thickness and I am convinced that when it comes to slim and wireless, the NuPhy Air must be the best one out there. I love the design and the colors, the build quality is outstanding and the sound is full bodied and lovely (brown). Connections are flawless for me so far, as is battery life.

    I've always been used to a 100% ISO layout, so some thoughts about this in case people looking for help. The fact the the arrow keys are so embedded is a bit of a problem for me. As a 3D artist I need them frequently, but I love the look without any gaps so much, I'll just live with it. I am a bit sad about the fact that the V2 came out slightly after I bought the V1 because the VIA support would have been important for me. With no Germen Caps available, I still need Umlaut letters when I write in German. With the NuPhy software so far I didnt find a good solution to achieve this. This is the only thing I miss, appart from that it's no big deal to get used to ANSI (took me about 2 weeks now) or to switch between the layouts.

    But this is no reason not to give the product 5 stars. I simply love it, I would buy it immediately again and I'm at the verge of buying another one for home.

    Top notch!

    I have been eyeing this product for months and I'm so glad I gave in because it's worth it. The feel of the keyboard, the high quality of the product and the ability to interchange keys, most of all the backlight effects. Love it!
