After a successful Kickstarter campaign, MOUNTAINopens brand store on mountain.gg
Freiburg, Germany— (21.04.2020) Everest is a fully customizable, mechanical gaming keyboard that is a revolution in choice. Despite a challenging time and hardships around the globe, Everest found tremendous success on Kickstarter, being funded by more than 1000 backers, and received high praise in a preview by Youtuber randomfrankp.
“The success Everest had on Kickstarter has been amazing and we appreciate the support from every backer,” says Tobias Brinkmann, Founder & CEO of MOUNTAIN. “It shows that our user-centric design and mission to bring unique features to consumers resonated well with the market. As soon as the campaign was over, we received countless inquiries asking when Everest would be available for pre-order. The demand didn’t show any signs of slowing down, and we look forward to serving all our customers when Everest is available for shipping.”
Effective immediately, MOUNTAIN launches its own brand store on mountain.gg, enabling everyone that missed the Kickstarter campaign to pre-order their Everest keyboard ahead of the launch in August.
The brand store on mountain.gg accepts pre-orders for all Everest keyboard variants and offers additional accessories for keyboard enthusiasts, such as a handmade MOUNTAIN artisan keycap.
Since funding was secured for Everest, design and production steps are progressing. The product packaging has been finalized and a new firmware update for the media dock enables additional features such as clock, stopwatch and timer. The display dial also features easy access to profile switching, RGB lighting, PC info, and more.
Everest is being released in three versions: Everest Max, Everest Core and Everest Core Barebone, available on mountain.gg.
Everest Max includes the base keyboard, the Media Dock with Display Dial, Numpad with 4 display keys, Palm Rest, a MOUNTAIN keycap, a combo keycap & switch removal tool, 8 spacers for Everest & add-on feet, a 2m USB Type-C cable and a 15cm USB Type-C to Type-C cable.
