If you've never heard of Fnatic, it is an internationally famous esports organization that has been around for many years and has several championship teams. The organization has teams representing it in a dozen different competitive video games. So if any company is going to know what gamers need in a keyboard, it's Fnatic.

The keyboard has a compact, portable design. It is a tenkeyless format, which means it lacks the number pad on the right that a full-size keyboard normally has. This is usually unnecessary for gaming, and the smaller size not only makes it portable but also allows for faster response times since everything is closer to your chest. The keyboard also has a detachable USB cable and a razor-thin 28mm profile to accomodate the portable nature.

Cherry MX Silent Red switches are some of the best that Cherry MX makes. They are far more quiet than your usual mechanical switches, which is important when the sound of the game is all you want to hear. They are also extremely durable with a lifetime rating up to 50 million keystrokes. They are dust resistant and fibre glass reinforced. They also boast self-cleaning contacts.

Other parts of the design include a PU leather wrist rest, rubber feet for maximum anti-slip grip, and an anodised metal top plate for durability. The full RGB backlighting includes eight instant lighting modes and infinite customization through the free software.
