Most keyboards including ergonomic models have a 10 degree positive slope from front to back. These designs tend to bend your wrists. The Kinesis Freestyle2 has a zero degree slope which minimises the height, effectively creating negative slope and reducing wrist extension. The slim design of the Kinesis provides you a 2-in-1 office and travel keyboard.

From small to tall and body types in between, the Freestyle2 allows for maximum flexibility catering to each individual’s unique needs. Out of the box both modules are connected together by a flexible pivot tether allowing an infinite range of splay. Disconnecting the pivot tether allows up to 9 inches of complete separation of both left and right keying modules. Perfect for individual needs ranging from a narrow footprint to complete separation. This design greatly reduces and/or eliminates ulnar deviation.

Additional Information

  • Accommodates a wide range of individuals- From small to tall and body types in between, the Freestyle2 allows for maximum flexibility catering to each individual’s unique needs. Out of the box both modules are connected together by a flexible pivot tether allowing an infinite range of splay. Disconnecting the pivot tether allows up to 9 inches of complete separation of both left and right keying modules. Perfect for individual needs ranging from a narrow footprint to complete separation. This design greatly reduces and or/eliminates ulnar deviation.
  • Sleek, low profile design - Most keyboards including ergonomic models have a 10 degree positive slope from front to back. These designs tend to bend your wrists. The Freestyle2 has a zero degree slope which minimizes the height, effectively creating negative slope and reducing wrist extension. The slim design provides you a 2-in-1 office and travel keyboard.
  • Optional palm supports - Optional padded palm supports reduce wrist extension by keeping wrists neutral.
  • Driverless hot keys - Driverless hot keys for commonly used mouse actions. (Internet Page Forward and Back, Undo, Web Home, Cut, Copy and Paste). A vertical rib is located on the inside row of hot keys to provide tactile notification to the user.
  • Familiar key layout - Familiar key layout provides for minimal adaptation time
  • Low-force, tactile key switches - The Freestyle2 utilizes a quiet, low-force, tactile membrane key switch. The typical average maximum key force of a switch is 45 grams. This is at least 25% less than most traditional and many ergonomic keyboards such as the Microsoft 4000 with maximum key forces of over 60 grams.

Q: I have a PC Freestyle2 keyboard. Why don’t the hot-keys work with my Mac computer?

The hot-keys on the left side of the Freestyle2 will only work with the specific operating system it was designed for.

You can swap 'Ctrl' with 'Command' in the operating system which will allow the hot-keys to work:

  1. Go to ‘System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys’, making sure the selected device is for the Freestyle2 keyboard
  2. Swap 'Ctrl' with 'Command'

The hot-keys should now work!

Q: The right side of my Freestyle2 keyboard is typing numbers – how do I stop this?

To use the number keys, simply press and release the ‘Fn’ key (bottom left of the keyboard) to toggle on and off.

Q: Random keys aren’t working – how do I fix this?

Most of the time, the reason for this is because your keyboard just needs a clean underneath the key. If you can pull the key off, use canned air spray to get rid of any debris/dust.

If the key is still not working, please contact our customer services team on +44 (0) 345 345 0010 to arrange an exchange, as it may be a defective unit.

Q: My Freestyle2 keyboard doesn’t work at all – how do I get it to work?
  1. Check the USB is plugged directly into the USB port on your PC
  2. Restart your PC
  3. Press the ‘Fn’ key and see if the LED light turns on or not. If the light turns on, it indicates power is received. If the LED is not turning on, that indicates a physical problem with the keyboard
  4. Try connecting your Freestyle2 keyboard to another PC, as it might be an issue with the PC and not the keyboard. If this LED still doesn’t turn on, please contact our customer services team on +44 (0) 345 345 0010, as it could be a defective unit

Seems to work really well. I've only been using it for about 3 weeks.

Great keyboard, feels nice and easy to get into the right position. Another positive is you can always change the position on different days, whereas you are limited to one position with fixed split keyboards. The only drawback I have found is if you have to move it to different locations as it can take a while to be ready to use due to searching for the most up to date drivers, but if you skip that step, it doesn't take as long.
