The ErgoDox EZ is a proven design.
Since our successful crowdfunding campaign all the way back in 2015, well over 100,000 people have relied on the ErgoDox EZ to get important work done. It’s a reliable design that works well and is deeply supported.A crowdfunding success
With a truly split layout, the ErgoDox EZ allows you to position each half where it makes sense to you. Typing at shoulder width allows you to keep your chest open and instantly leads to a more relaxed posture. No more hunching over the keyboard.

Best Ergonomic Keyboard:
The Upgrade Pick
Golden Hardware Award:
What powerful looks like
When you extend your finger, it doesn't go sideways, does it? So why are the keys on your keyboard not directly on top of each other? The answer is archaic design, which we fixed. The ErgoDox EZ has linear columns of keys, reducing finger travel and fatigue.
Uncompromising 2-year warranty
The ErgoDox EZ is a serious investment in your future well being, and our warranty policy reflects this. Every unit comes with a two-year, no-BS, no fine-print warranty.
You can even extend this by two additional years, for a four-year warranty on your ErgoDox EZ.Read more at zsa.io
Every unit made to order. Create a keyboard that's perfect for you.
No more squishy keys: With a mechanical keyboard, each keypress is distinct and tactile. The ErgoDox EZ is available with many switch types, from soft and quiet to firm and clicky.Learn more about our switches
Change your own keyswitches
Gain ultimate control over your hardware: Change any keyswitch on your ErgoDox EZ, at any time, without soldering and without voiding the warranty. Your keyboard, your switches, your way.Find out why this is a game changer
The third dimension: Thanks to our custom tilt/tent kit, you can control the angle of the keyboard in relation to your desk. Angle both halves to create a “pyramid”, create a negative incline, or any other angle that works for you.
Wing Wrist Rest
Our heavy, custom-molded Wing wrist rest was designed to complement the contour of the ErgoDox EZ. We made it separate from the keyboard to allow you to control the distance between the wrist rest and the keyboard.
Being a separate part, the Wing is fully washable and is easy to clean.
Printed or Blank
Our printed keycaps cover the alphanumeric characters of the keyboard, leaving the edges completely open to remapping. They are all the same profile so you can easily move them around for Colemak, Norman, or any other layout. Our blank keycaps are sculpted, DCS profiles.Learn more about our keycaps
Three Lighting Options
Want backlit keys? We've got them. The ErgoDox EZ Glow comes with powerful, fully-programmable RGB LEDs under the letter clusters. It ships with custom doubleshot keycaps, and supports fun animations, too.
With the ErgoDox EZ Glow, you can highlight just the keys that are active in the current layer — or the whole layer, in any color you choose.
For the ErgoDox EZ Shine, set a distinct hue for every layer and make it easy to tell at a glance which layer is active.
After a thousand hours of typing on ErgoDoxEZ (4+ hours every day for 8 months) I can say it is the best keyboard I have ever typed on.

A sustainable keyboard
Too many devices are built to break or become obsolete in a year or two. That's bad for your pocket, and for the planet. We made sure our keyboards stay useful for many years to come.Learn more at zsa.io
We make keyboards for pros. Five key questions,
answered by our users.
Ergodox EZ, or Moonlander Mark 1?
We don’t like to compare the Ergodox EZ and the Moonlander, simply because they are just different boards, not necessarily better or worse than the other. But, if you’re deciding between the two, here are some stats that may help you decide which will suit you better.Read more

It's deliberate practice, for typing. Our Live Training tool includes everything you need to master your new keyboard layout and level up over time, for your own comfort and productivity nirvana.Learn more
And you can make it your own.
The powerful firmware that runs on your ErgoDox EZ is called QMK and it's open-source, available on GitHub. While you can use the configurator to quickly put together a layout, having complete access to the firmware source code means you can dig as deep as you'd like.Fork us on Github
A big part of what makes a keyboard ergonomic is making it work for you. Our powerful configurator allows you to change virtually anything about the keyboard, save your layouts, and iterate on them to create your very own perfect keyboard.
Need easy access to your F-keys? Want a mechanical numpad? Need programmer-friendly symbols right on your home row? With multiple layers, all of this becomes trivial. It's like a Shift key on steroids.
Dedicated Hyper and Meh keys
Unlock the power of system-wide shortcuts. Hyper is Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Cmd, while Meh is Ctrl+Shift+Alt. No sane application on your machine uses these, which means you get free system-wide shortcuts.
Use your Shift key for more. Press and hold it, and it acts as Shift. Tap it on its own, and it sends a parentheses — open parens on the left Shift, close parens on the right Shift. This is not enabled by default, but is trivial to enable using the configurator.
Never take your hands off the keyboard. The ErgoDox EZ can emulate a mouse, allowing you to control your cursor, scrollwheel and mouse buttons quickly and effectively.
Tap your Z key, and it sends the letter Z as expected. Press and hold it down... and it becomes Alt. That is the power of dual-function keys: When tapped, they send a character. When held, they act as a modifier. Alt, Ctrl and friends have never been easier to reach.
