New: the Klippe S will feature a stainless steel weight. See pictures.

The plate of your choice, is screwed into a carbon fiber piece that is resting on the aluminium base. This eliminates the chance that the metal against metal produce pinging sounds. The Klippe S will still feature a firm typing experience.
The Klippe S, has support for most soldered 60% PCBs on the market, while also offering the WT60-D from Mekanisk & wilba.tech as an option and included in the base price. This makes the case great for people that don't want to be locked to one single PCB.
While this is the PCB that the case is moulded after, there are other PCBs that fit as well, due to the design desicions that make the USB I/O larger for compability for 60% PCBs that slightly differ from the standard. We are not responsible for incompatbility with PCBs not bought from Mekanisk.
Klippe S features a medium thick frame, offering the benefits of a smaller footprint, while maintaining the good acoustics for the installed keyboard switches. The case features small chamfers, and fillets to round the design slightly, drawing inspiration from Fjell and, of course, the Klippe.
