High Performance Gaming
The all-new Freestyle Edge RGB is the first split mechanical keyboard designed specifically for gaming. It was engineered with input from hardcore gamers to meet the strictest standards for quality, design, and performance. Now with immersive RGB Lighting, Cushioned Palm Supports, and an all new SmartSet App.
Unlike conventional keyboards, the Edge gives you unparalleled freedom to customize the position of the left and right halves of the keyboard separately based on your specific needs. There is no wrong way to set up the Freestyle Edge RGB, just dial in the optimal configuration based on your other input devices and accessories for the ultimate desktop freedom.
Not a gamer? No problem. The Freestyle Edge RGB features Kinesis’ award-winning split adjustable ergonomic design perfect for all body types and typing styles.
- Separate the key modules to shoulder-width to reduce ulnar deviation.
- The new cushioned palm supports and zero-degree slope eliminate harmful wrist extension.
- The tenkeyless design brings the mouse in closer to your body to eliminate painful “over-reach”.
- Low-force, full-travel mechanical key switches feel great, but also reduce fingertip impact for less strain and fatigue.
- Want an even more ergonomic experience? Attach the popular Lift Kit or V3 Pro accessory for adjustable tenting (3 heights) to reduce forearm strain.
The Edge is plug-and-play compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome. And thanks to its subtle styling and matte black finish, it looks great at home or in the office.

Gamepad when you want it
Full-size keyboard when you need it
Thanks to the Freestyle Edge RGB’s unique split design, you can convert the keyboard into a compact gamepad and bring your mouse in close for one-handed play. When your mouse is positioned in front of your shoulder you have more comfort, enhanced precision, and less fatigue so you can play better and play longer. The Edge is especially great for low-DPI mousing and eliminates those nasty collisions with your keyboard.
Still need a few keys from the right side of the keyboard? No problem, remap them to the 9 Game Keys for easy access with your left hand, so your right hand never leaves your mouse. You have 9 different Profiles at your finger tips, so build custom layouts for each game to maximize performance.
Push the key modules together for a standard 75% keyboard layout and classic typing experience. We recommend starting in this configuration and gradually moving the modules apart until you find the configuration that is most comfortable for body type and preferences.
Separate the modules up to 20 inches to put your HOTAS, mic, stream deck, drawing tablet, or mouse within easy reach. The Edge frees up some amazingly valuable space right in the middle of your desk. How will you use it?
Rotate the left module independently for optimal key coverage of Ctrl and Shift when using WASD, without crowding your mouse or hanging the keyboard off your desk. If you’re typing, rotating the modules is a great way to keep wrists straight and eliminate harmful ulnar deviation.
Whether you’re typing or gaming, add one of our popular tenting accessories to keep your hands and arms in a neutral position to reduce the painful forearm pronation caused by basic “flat” keyboards. Choose the Lift Kit (#AC910) for tenting with Palm Supports or the V3 Pro (#AC930) for tenting without the Palm Supports. *Sold Separately
