The new Kinesis Freestyle2 Blue Keyboard is an extremely versatile ergonomic Bluetooth keyboard. This innovative keyboard offers all the same features as the corded Freestyle2, with the added convenience of a Multichannel Bluetooth connection. Kinesis' unique Multichannel technology enables users to instantly switch keyboard input between up to three Bluetooth devices (smart phones, tablets, laptops, etc.) The Freestyle2 Blue eliminates the wait while a connection is established and paves the way to increased efficiency and improved productivity. Two models, one for PC and one for Mac, ensure that users on both platforms benefit equally.
This low-profile keyboard is divided into two separate modules connected by a 9" or 20" cable, and is dramatically thinner and more portable than the original version. The modular design allows the user to configure the keyboard in its optimal orientation, either by splaying the modules at any angle or by adjusting the distance between the modules up to 9" or 20". Optional accessory kits provide additional keyboard configurations, including the ability to tent the modules at set angles of elevation, or to add a separate matching numeric keypad.
Note: With full separation on the 9" cable model, the distance between index finger to index finger on the home row is approximately 12".
Optional Accessory Kits
The VIP3 Accessory Kit for the Freestyle2 provides the ability to tent the keyboard modules (i.e to create lateral slopes) at 5°, 10° or 15°. Palm supports are included with this kit and must be attached in order to use the tenting mechanism.
The V3 Accessory Kit provides the option of a tenting mechanism without integrated palm supports. The V3 offers tenting of 5°, 10° and 15° and would be a suitable option at a workstation where palm supports were already in use.
Note: The V3 Accessory Kit is not compatible with the optional Palm Support Accessory Kit.
The more specialized Ascent Accessory Kit provides two multi-angle tenting modules that attach to the underside of the keyboard's two modules.
The Freestyle2 Numeric Keypad (corded) seamlessly matches the low-profile design of the Freestyle2 keyboard and features the same proven low-force, quiet and tactile membrane key switches.
The Low Force Tactile Numeric Keypad (corded) provides a more durable option for heavy duty use. This keypad has a wider, higher profile and low-force tactile mechanical key switches with a longer operating life. For more information see our Keypads category.
