Revolutionize Your Typing Experience with Advantage2

With over 25 years of leadership in computer ergonomics, Kinesis proudly introduces the Advantage2, a pinnacle of premium-grade ergonomic keyboards. Featuring the patented Contoured keyboardTM design, low-force Cherry MX Quiet Red mechanical key switches, and the innovative SmartSetTM Programming Engine, it's engineered for maximum comfort and productivity.

Ergonomic Excellence:

  • Concave Keywells: Expertly scooped into a bowl shape, reducing hand and finger extension to promote muscle relaxation.
  • Separated Keywells: Positioned at shoulder-width, ensuring straight wrists and minimizing abduction and ulnar deviation.
  • Vertical Column Key Arrangement: Aligned to the natural motion of fingers, optimizing typing comfort.
  • 20-Degree Tenting: The two keywells are tented at an optimal 20-degree angle, fostering a neutral "handshake" posture and reducing forearm pronation.
  • Integrated Palm Supports: Alleviate wrist stress with convenient palm supports, complemented by optional cushioned palm pads for enhanced comfort.
  • Thumb Clusters: Strategically placing frequently-used keys within reach of stronger thumbs, redistributing workload for efficiency.
  • Compact Footprint: By eliminating the numeric 10-key, the Advantage2 reduces its size, bringing the mouse closer and minimizing "over-reach."

Mechanical Mastery:

  • Cherry MX Quiet Red Mechanical Key Switches: Experience a linear feel, low activation force, and sound-dampening components for a quieter typing experience. Ideal for open work environments.
  • Cherry ML Low-Force Mechanical Key Switches: Transformed function keys for a responsive and comfortable touch.

The Advantage2 Quiet LF is the epitome of silent efficiency, bringing together cutting-edge design, ergonomic prowess, and whisper-quiet performance. Redefine your typing experience with a keyboard crafted for ultimate comfort and productivity.
