Everest Sets Stretch Goal for a Midnight Black Edition of its Innovative Keyboard

Everest is a fully customizable, mechanical gaming keyboard that is a revolution in choice. Brought to you by Mountain, Everest can be pre-ordered here, from 95€ ($90 / £85 - depending on exchange rate). The Everest keyboard is available in Barebone, Core (TKL) and Max versions. The new stretch goal enables a variant of Everest in Midnight Black, a deep black anodized aluminium design, if the campaign reaches at least 100,000€ before it ends on April 2nd. If reached, the stretch goal will enable every backer to choose between Gunmetal Gray and Midnight Black.

Many backers requested stretch goals and a large part of the community asked for an all-black version of Everest. Mountain's focus on the user-centric approach doesn't end with the product design. "We appreciate all the support we have received so far and continue to listen to customer feedback," says Tobias Brinkmann, Founder & CEO of Mountain. "With the incredible success of Everest on Kickstarter, it didn't take long until we received the first inquiries of stretch goals and a Black version was in particular high demand. We are all about freedom of choice and delivering products that customers ask for, so we are pleased to be able to do so with the Midnight Black Edition!"

Featuring black anodized aluminium rather than a cheap coating, Mountain doesn't cut corners with product quality and stays true to its user-centric four pillar philosophy: Innovation, Performance, Aesthetics and Modularity.

Moar color choices are good, but the media center & number pad STILL look like tacky add-on after thoughts, which completely kills the sleek, streamlined look of the KB itself......

Still waiting on a wireless/BT version too :D

Right.... I'd say just make a separate model with a numpad.

Has all features i need from keyboard but with two downsides: numpad as add-on (i may live with it) and these high a f keycaps make keyboard unusable to me.

Wait. Black isn't a color... and the text does not say, but isn't the original 'color'....... black?

Never mind that, it's silver ish. OK. But still... a stretch goal for a black faceplate?

Err... you can just change the keycaps out for that and then you set the keyboard layout in Windows or whichever OS.

Dual height enter key, and a smaller left shift. And I think ISO has one key more.

Ah, I do see. Finally saw an accurate picture. Understandable. Though I personally can't hold it against them for a Kickstarter project like this.
