What is flaretech about?
In short, it's the world's fastest mechanical keyboard
Flaretech Switch is an optical prism switch; it is the fastest mechanical keyboard switch to date. It is different from the linear light path conduction of the regular optical switch. It uses the principle of prism refraction, optimizes the direction of light refraction, ensures a reasonable production rate, and reduces the failure rate of the optical switch.
It uses a dedicated PCB panel that mounts hot-swappable switches, unlike traditional mechanical switches. It will not affect the trigger even if the PCB board has a certain deformation, and it will not affect the trigger.
