Features

All refurbished units are thoroughly factory tested, inspected and cleaned and backed by the same 2 year limited warranty offered with our new models.

The award-winning Freestyle Pro keyboard offers the same advanced ergonomic features of the Freestyle2 but with the additional benefits of full on-board programmability and low-force Cherry MX Brown mechanical key switches. Instantly switch between Windows, Mac and Dvorak layouts or create your own. The FS Pro makes programming a breeze with onboard shortcuts and the no-install SmartSet App. And with a standard 20″ linking cable everyone can find their comfort zone.

Zero degree slope form factor
As with the Freestyle2 the FS Pro retains a zero degree slope from front to back. Most keyboards including ergonomic models have a 10 degree positive slope. These designs tend to bend your wrists. The FS Pro’s zero degree slope decreases the height, effectively creating negative slope and reducing wrist extension.

Adjustable linking cable accommodates a wide range of users
The two key modules are connected by a 20 inch linking cable that can be adjusted to suit your preferences and body type. The basic configuration allows up to 12 inches of separation. If you need additional separation, simply remove the cable compartment cover located on the back of the left key module and thread out more of the stored cable until you find your desired width.

Standard key layout
Familiar key layout provides for minimal adaptation time.

Optional tenting accessories
For people that are experiencing forearm discomfort two tenting accessories are available to reduce forearm pronation. The VIP3 Pro (with palm supports) and V3 Pro (without palm supports) attach easily to the underside of the Pro keyboard providing 3 easily adjustable slope settings of 5, 10 and 15 degrees.

Optional palm supports
Optional padded palm supports reduce wrist extension by keeping wrists neutral.

Mechanical Key Switches

The Freestyle Pro (KB900-BRN model) utilizes the Cherry MX Brown stem low-force tactile key switches. “Tactility” is a slightly elevated force around the midpoint of the stroke of the key which lets you know the switch is about to be activated. A tactile response is preferred by many ergonomists, because it cues your fingers that activation is about to occur and can reduce the frequency of “bottoming out” the switch with a hard impact.

The Freestyle Pro (KB900-RDQ model) utilizes the newest Cherry MX Quiet Red stem mechanical key switches which have a linear feel, low activation force, and sound-dampening components to make them quieter than conventional mechanical switches.

SmartSet

The fully programmable Freestyle Pro features Kinesis’s all-new SmartSet Programming Engine that allows you to customize the keyboard’s layout without installing any clunky software or special drivers, or accessing the internet. Record macros, remap keys, and much, much more using convenient onboard shortcuts. SmartSet works on all major operating systems and enables users to easily create, view, edit, share, and backup their custom layouts.

  • Dual-Layer layouts with secondary actions embedded in the “Keypad” layer
  • Windows and Mac Switchable (extra keycaps included)
  • One-touch, onboard key remapping so you can customize the layout to suit your typing style and preferences
  • Heavy-duty, on-the-fly macros up to 300 characters long. Choose from 9 playback speeds and add timing delays to ensure proper playback.
  • Upgrade to the latest firmware for even more macros… 100 per layout!
  • All settings are saved to the keyboard’s 4MB flash memory.

SmartSet Programming App

Prefer a graphical interface for customizing the Advantage’s layout and setings. Launch the no-install SmartSet App directly from the keyboard on your Windows or Mac computer to view layouts, create/edit macros, and adjust keyboard settings.
