Sharkoon launches new Skiller SGK50 mechanical keyboards and DIY kits

Sharkoon has added three new models to the Skiller SGK50 keyboard line. The latest versions are 75% layout keyboards, available in black or white, with a special white version having blue accents and white PBT keycaps. The SKILLER SGK50 S3 is also available in barebones form, without any switches or keycaps, allowing you to  choose your own for a fully custom board.

The Skiller SGK50 S3 has hot-swap capabilities for 3-pin or 5-pin switches and is compatible with QMK and VIA open-source software. It has a more extensive layout than the Skiller SGK50 S4, featuring separate arrow and function keys and an extra Sharkoon key that allows for easy programming of up to two macros and lighting adjustments without the need for additional software.

The Skiller SGK50 S3 comes with pre-installed Gateron switches, including red, yellow, and tactile brown switches. The Skiller SGK50 S3 PBT version has G Pro Yellow switches. For those who prefer to customise their keyboard, the Skiller SGK50 S3 barebones are a great option, as they provide positioning plates for ISO and ANSI layouts.

Features like the polycarbonate positioning plate, double-layer silicone dampening, and factory-lubricated stabilisers enhance the typing experience on the SGK50 S3 keyboards. Additionally, the Skiller SGK50 S3 PBT version comes with grease-resistant PBT keycaps with dye-sub legends for further longevity.

The Sharkoon Skiller SGK50 S3 standard and barebone versions in black are now available at the manufacturer's recommended retail price of 79.90 euros and 59.90 euros, respectively. The white versions (standard and barebone) will be available soon. The Sharkoon Skiller SGK50 S3 PBT is also now available with an MSRP of €89.90.
