Raise design

Raise is an ergonomic mechanical keyboard designed to enhance performance and comfort, and prevent long-term injuries caused by many hours spent on a keyboard.

Its functionalities have been tested and validated by professionals, guaranteeing a revolutionary combination of features with an ergonomic split design.

Why Raise

  1. Split ergonomic design. Allows you to improve your body posture while reducing stress on your wrists and shoulders.
  2. Fully customizable layouts. You can create up to 10 layouts and toggle instantly between them. Any key in any layout is remappable.
  3. 8 thumb keys. The thumb is the strongest and least used finger. The keys are where your thumbs naturally rest so they are easy to access.
  4. Gaming keypad experience and normal typing in the same device. You can detach either side to make more space for the mouse and the extra thumb buttons. If you want a normal typing experience, you can just snap both sides together.
  5. All these features take into account reducing the learning curve to zero.

Light Pipes, Reflectors, and the Diffuser

The base has integrated light pipes that carry the light from the LEDs of the PCB to the perimeter of the base. Reflectors made of polished polycarbonate help intensify the light. A translucent diffuser is then wrapped around the edges of the base giving the even effect of the underglow.

Stainless steel pins and integrated magnets

A combination of magnets and stainless steel pins is used to attach both halves of the keyboard together.

The King of Keycaps

The keycaps of the Raise have the standard OEM profile. This is the most common keycap profile used in mechanical keyboards. There are 60 standard keycaps and 8 special keycaps.

You can either get PBT double-injected keycaps or ABS laser-etched keycaps.

PBT-ABS Double Injection Keycaps: made by a double-injection process where 2 types of material, PBT and ABS, are injected into a mold to create the keycap. Available languages: English US ANSI layout and the English UK ISO layout are offered in PBT.

ABS Single Injection Keycaps: made by a single-injection process and the legends are laser-etched onto the keycaps. Available languages: German, Nordic, Spanish, Japanese, French, and Blank keycaps.

Keycap Layout and Sizes

ANSI Layout – used predominantly in the United States

Available in English (US)

ISO Layout – used by many European countries, with an L-shaped enter key and one extra key beside the left shift.

Available in the following languages:

Ergonomic split design

The Dygma Raise can not only be split, but both its sides are detachable. This design has a few direct benefits for your health and performance.

Raise - best mechanical keyboard - Improves health

IMPROVED HEALTH

A normal keyboard forces the wrists to bend towards the pinky side of your hand. Rotating the keyboard’s halves lets you keep your wrists at a more neutral angle. This decreases pressure and strain over time.

You can also adjust the width between the two halves of the keyboard and place them directly in front of your shoulders. This can reduce shoulder internal rotation.

Raise - best mechanical keyboard - Gaming mode

GAMING KEYPAD EXPERIENCE

You can detach any side and play with the other. You’ll have more space for your mouse and the extra thumb keys.

If you want a normal typing experience you can just snap both sides together.

Raise - best mechanical keyboard - Focus mode

HELPS FOCUSING (ANTI-FLAME MODE)

Sometimes you get frustrated with teammates and enemies, and then start typing. Raise can help you stay focused.

Playing with one side will keep you from typing and will help you stay focused.

If you want to type timers, you can configure the numpad on whichever side you’re using.

Hot-swappable mechanical switches

Mechanical switches are a standard in gaming but there’s an issue, once you buy your keyboard, you are stuck with them until you buy a new one.

With the Raise, that’s not a problem anymore. All our switches are hot-swappable, so you can easily pull them out and replace them with others whenever you want.

Raise - best mechanical keyboard - RGB underglow

RGB Lights and underglow

Not only do RGB leds look “cool” but they also give you visual feedback. For example, when you change layers, you can know which layer you are on depending on the color of the backlights. This will reduce your learning curve when getting used to multiple layers.

With the Raise, you can create multiple layers and toggle instantly between them. As every key in every layout is rebindable, it can be configured to have its own color.
