HyperX Linear Switches are key switches that have taken the successful foundation of our red switches and refined them into a more agile, more versatile package. These 5-pin switches are compatible with most 5-pin hot-swappable keyboards, so even if you don’t have a HyperX keyboard, you can still enjoy the benefits of these high-performance switches. HyperX Linear Switches feature half-wall stems, increasing keycap stability when executing rapid taps or in other high-pressure situations. The switches also come pre-lubed, so you can enjoy smooth, quiet, responsive keypresses right out of the box[2]. Built to last with a durable nylon base to support the leaf, spring, and stem, and with a crystal-clear polycarbonate top, these reliable switches are rated for a lifetime of up to 80 million keypresses[1].
