65% smaller body

Equipped with a versatile touch panel

PBT Double-Shot Keycap Adoption
The keycaps are ROG PBT double-shot keycaps, which provide not only a superb touch feeling but also high durability.
Optimized key design, mid-height keycaps, and shortened stems reduce key wobble and provide more comfortable operation.
Polycarbonate keyboard cover included.
ROG Falchion comes with a transparent polycarbonate keyboard cover to protect the keys when the keyboard is not in use or when carrying it around.
When the keyboard is in use, the cover can be placed underneath to diffuse the RGB lighting on the underside for a better visual effect.
To allow use of the touch panel even when the cover is laid down, a slit is provided on the side of the cover, which is designed to provide a high sense of usability.
