The Truly Ergonomic CLEAVE Keyboard is the Best Ergonomic Split keyboard for Natural typing

Truly Ergonomic Cleave Best Mechanical keyboard space gray

The Truly Ergonomic CLEAVE Keyboard combines an advanced ergonomic design for natural typing with high-performance features that allow you to increase your productivity comfortably.

The split layout allows you to keep your wrists straight and also improves your overall posture inviting you to maintain your body’s natural symmetry and neutral position.

Relative Finger Strength

Truly Ergonomic Cleave - Relative Finger Strength

The Truly Ergonomic CLEAVE Keyboard design follows your fingers’ neutral position adapting to your natural curvature helping you to reduce lateral movement.

The vertical column arrangement reduces the side-to-side movement of your fingers. Each column is also adjusted vertically to optimize the key position by matching the length and reach of each of your fingers and conforming to the natural curvature of your hands.

Each row has individually sculpted keycaps to optimize your fingers’ contact. The symmetrical layout encourages a natural ergonomic central positioning increasing your productivity.

Also features the most commonly used keys like Backspace, Delete, Shift, and Enter, located at the center within easy reach of your strongest fingers, promoting a comfortable typing experience and increasing your efficiency.

The only Ergonomic Keyboard that benefits from optical infrared mechanical key switches

The CLEAVE is indeed the only ergonomic keyboard that allows you to benefit from new optical mechanical switches using Infrared Light to register every keystroke. These are the most reliable switches providing you with an extraordinarily comfortable feel and the fastest actuation.

Instead of relying on outdated metal‑to‑metal switches or dreadful rubber domes, each optical key switch on the Cleave keyboard contains its own laser emitter and a sensor allowing you to type with lightning-fast actuation helping your typing experience feel swift and effortless.

Guaranteed for 100 Million keystrokes

Optical Infrared switches offer instantaneous actuation while eliminating all of the common wear and tear issues that come along with all other mechanical keyboards.

Our switches are a dream come true for your hands. Soft, sturdy, comfortable, consistent, and offering amazing reliability. So even after years of use, rest assured that the switches on your CLEAVE keyboard will still feel strong, comfortable, and satisfying.

Pain Free Productivity

Here’s something to think about – when you sit down in front of a pad of paper to write something down, do you place the pad perfectly straight in front of you and then twist your wrist in order to write out a line?

Of course you don’t. What you do is angle the pad slightly so that your hand and forearm form a nice, straight, comfortable line to write with. No one taught you to do this, you just did it instinctively. You automatically found the most ergonomic position to write in, and it just feels right.

By changing the angle and arrangement of the keys on the CLEAVE keyboard, it allows you to place your wrists and hands in a neutral position, keeping you safe from pain, numbness, and CTS/RSI, while also enhancing your typing speed.

Imagine yourself being able to swiftly and effortlessly type up any document, write a novel, dive into the most demanding essay, or write long lines of code, all while minimizing any potential wear and tear on your body. The CLEAVE keyboard allows you to have your hands and forearms at the angle you feel most comfortable while keeping your wrists straight and supported.

It’s the perfect blend of comfort and productivity for you.

Soft. Cushioned. Comfortable. Palmrest.

The soft cushioned palm rest helps you work in comfort.

It is fully integrated into the aerospace‑grade Aluminum alloy Body, making it extremely strong and virtually unbreakable.

We also know that the sharp edges commonly found on most keyboards cause discomfort over time. By comparison, our smooth palmrest follows the neutral position of your wrists helping you keep feeling amazing even after extended use.

Built to Last

Advanced Nano-coating shield making it Water, Dust, and even Snack resistant.

We put a lot of passion into the products we create, and all Truly Ergonomic CLEAVE keyboards are designed to be enjoyed for life. Features a solid, slim profile body made from aerospace‑grade Aluminum alloy, and keycaps coated with a protective UV coating that defends against oil, grime, and other elements of normal use, keeping them looking perfect and new even after prolonged use.


Helps you work in comfort and avoid wrist pain

An ergonomic keyboard that helps you achieve a neutral wrist alignment avoiding wrist and shoulder pain.

The narrow footprint reduces overreach to the Mouse, including all of the standard keys in only 60% of the area.

A Perfect Fit. Anywhere.

When it comes to putting together your dream workstation, we know how important cable management is. That’s why the CLEAVE Keyboard comes with built-in cable re‑routing functionality.

Whether you prefer the cable to run straight out the back, or on either side of the keyboard, you can pick the style that suits your workstation best.

Convenient cable management coupled with the overall compact design of the keyboard allows you to easily pair it with laptops, so you can take the ultimate ergonomic typing experience with you anywhere you go.

A Light in The Dark

The Truly Ergonomic CLEAVE keyboard keeps things comfortable and classy with a simple, powerful, bright white LED backlight under each key, delivering the most comfortable color for your visibility in any light condition.

Since the CLEAVE Keyboard is designed for easy customization with swappable switches, we deliberately installed our LEDs on the PCB itself instead of on the switch. This allows you to replace any switch while still retaining full backlight functionality.
