Vicious40 Keyboard




The Vicious40 CNC aluminum keyboard in our Brutalist Series of in stock keyboards. The solderable PCB included is QMK/VIA supported and USB-C, and the mounting style is a slightly modified top mount called Burger Mount. Burger Mount takes the evenness from top mount and uses o-rings on the mounting screws to make the typing experience slightly less harsh.

Quality Disclaimer

The is a board aimed to stay within a budget, and maintain affordability. It's fully aluminum and anodized beautifully, but to achieve this price point, the quality bar is lower than some of our more "premium line" boards, such as the Satisfaction75 and Chimera65. Customers have been happy with the quality of the Brutal-line boards, but we like to communicate this prior to purchase.

In general, large defects to visible faces will make a board B stock. But minor issues, small issues that are only visible in just the right angle of lighting, or small dents or blemishes on the bottom of the case that are not visible when the keyboard is fully built and on the desk will not cause a B stock evaluation.

Keyboard cases that ship with keyboards are meant to protect keyboards during shipping. These keyboard cases are made to order to fit the keyboard precisely, and are limited in quantity. As such, we do not replace keyboard cases if the keyboard case arrives damaged. Ideally, no keyboard carrying case arrives damaged, but at times, couriers are rough with packages and damages can occur. In these instances, we offer customers a $5 coupon off their next order as compensation.

We use photos of our products in hand when possible to show how they look in realistic situations. Sometimes the product might look different within the same listing- this is generally caused by different lighting conditions. When possible, we try to use different lighting conditions to show what the product might look like in different scenarios.

Great Little Board

This is a fun board! The sharp boxy design of the brutalist line and the inclusion of arrow keys in the layout makes it look like a feisty little 65%. The quality feels great, and sounds good with the included poly-fill and no other mods. I'm no expert on mounting methods, but the board has a little flex and wasn't too hard to put together. There aren't too many 40% non-ortholinear boards with arrow keys around, especially not in stock, so it's really cool to have something like this available at a reasonable price point. Carrying case is a nice touch too.

We're so happy you like this unique 40% layout as much as we do! Enjoy!

Built Different

Great build quality and overall kit. The stability and even sound characteristics from top-mount are balanced nicely with the included o-rings for burger mounting, introducing some bounce and reducing the rigidity.

Split spacebar sounds amazingly poppy, and with the included polyfill or PE foam + force break, there is no ping or hollowness from the case.

Overall a great kit and awesome in-stock for 40s enthusiasts. YouTube video placeholder

We're very excited to be able to offer an in-stock 40% board, so it's great to see you're liking the Vicious40!
