Introducing Everest: The most innovative and customizable keyboard to achieve peak performance
Featuring integrated display keys, a detachable numpad and media dock with display dial, hot-swappable switches, and much more
Freiburg, Germany– (03.03.2020) Available for pre-order today, Everest is a fully customizable, mechanical gaming keyboard that is a revolution in choice. Brought to you by MOUNTAIN, Everest can be pre-ordered here, from 95€ ($90 / £85 – depending on exchange rate). The Everest keyboard is available as the Core Version in TKL format and MAX version featuring the removable numpad and media dock.
MOUNTAIN’s design philosophy is built on four pillars: Innovation, Performance, Aesthetics and Modularity. The Everest keyboard includes patent-pending features, designed from the ground up. Integrated display keys can be assigned to any game or application for a faster launch, the modular media dock with circular display dial provides unprecedented levels of control and allows you to monitor your system. The magnetic removable numpad and magnetic feet allow multiple levels of height adjustment for ease of use. The Everest keyboard is built to the highest standard – created from double-plated aluminium, combined with CNC-milling for added aesthetics.
Each Everest is ready to be personalized to your own style and comfort requirements. Hot-swappable Cherry MX Switches for what works best in any given game, RGB illumination offers 16.7million colors to choose from, while a comfortable magnetic palm rest makes it perfect for long playing sessions. There’s also a USB 3.2 Gen 1 hub that provides an additional high-speed USB port, limiting the amount of unnecessary cables and extensions in your setup, and N-Key Rollover ensuring Everest can handle whatever inputs are thrown at it. With the easy-to-use and in-house developed Base Camp™ software available to set up Macros, you can respond even while gaming.
“From the very beginning, our philosophy was to design user-centric products without any compromise,” says Tobias Brinkmann, Founder & CEO of MOUNTAIN. “We wanted to create an innovative keyboard enabling customization for individual needs through modularity. In its very essence, Everest is the keyboard we wanted for ourselves”
In the production of Everest, a key focus for MOUNTAIN is reducing the environmental impact. Everest and its modular components are built to last. Although plastic packaging will be kept to a minimum, all plastic used will be recyclable and the packaging itself has been designed to be reused. MOUNTAIN has also partnered with Plastic Bank. By purchasing our product, you will support extracting 25000 kg of plastic from the environment in 2020 with Mountain and Plastic Bank.
