Kinesis introduces the new Freestyle2 ergonomic split keyboard. With adjustable front splay and complete separation, the flexible Freestyle2 can be adjusted to each individual’s unique body type – from petite to large frame. As you can see in the picture, the split keyboard has two modules, which are connected together by a flexible pivot tether allowing an infinite range of splay and greatly reducing ulnar deviation. Yet, the keyboard can be completely separated, by up to 9 inches, by releasing the pivot tether. There is also a version that allows 20 inches of separation.
The Freestyle2 has a slim profile and has a zero degree slope which minimizes the height, effectively creating negative slope and reducing wrist extension. The split keyboard utilizes a quiet, low-force, tactile membrane key switch, and has double wide Delete and Escape keys, embedded 10-key, volume control and calculator keys, and diverless hot keys for commonly used mouse actions such as copy, cut, paste.
The standard version of Kinesis Freestyle2 with 9 inch separaion is priced at $99. The 20-inch separation version costs $139. Kinesis also release the optional Palm Supports for $24.99 and the VIP3 (V-Lifter and Integrated Palm Supports, 3 angles) accessory kit for tenting the keyboard with palm supports.
