COUGAR 700K Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

COUGAR 700K is a premium mechanical gaming keyboard aimed at serious and professional gamers. Inspired by military “stealth technology”, the design is created from elements of geometric facet; Mechanical key modules are mounted on an exposed and bent aluminium structure with premium brushed surface treatments; this structure provides the user with more efficient typing, not to mention a sturdy and strong structural foundation. The ends are then wrapped in a plastic frame to create a Protected feel. Intuitive key and button groupings are neatly integrated into the plastic frame. Thereby drawing and driving attention towards key areas and allowing the gamers to concentrate and focus on their competitive matches. An extra FPS palm rest with a magnetic attachment system provides great WASD control.

aluminium Frame Structure

Both for achieving a better aesthetic design and for improving the product’s durability, the mechanical key modules are mounted over an exposed bent aluminium structure. Apart from being part of an award-winning design (COMPUTEX d&i awards 2014, iF product design award 2014), this structure makes the keyboard sturdy and durable and gives you what every keyboard should give you: the true feeling of being in command.

The First and Best Mechanical Switches

Six G-Keys

6 Programmable G keys (5 on the left side of the keyboard and a sixth one to the right of the space bar) allow for quick access to a variety of functions. Fully configurable, all of them make your life easier by enabling you to access the functions you want without interfering with the standard keys of the keyboard. Five keys on the left side of the keyboard, near the WASD keys for quick access without moving your hand, and a key just to the right of the space bar for thumb use. More keys, no extra hand movements.

Individual Key Backlight Setting

You can individually configure the backlight of all the keys, making sure the key backlight works exactly the way you need to. As for the brightness of the backlight, there are five levels for you to choose from. This function is very often used for the WASD keys, as well as for any relevant shortcuts you might want to keep always on sight.

On-the-fly Mode Switch

Three dedicated keys allow you to switch configuration Profiles instantly with a single movement, without getting out of the game. Thanks to 700K’s on-board memory and three internally stored configuration Profiles, you will be able to bring a massive amount of functions with you anywhere you go.

Repeat Rate 1X/2X/4X/8X Adjustment

The COUGAR 700K allows for quick adjustment of the repeat rate of the keyboard,
which is especially useful for games which require repeatedly pressing a specific key.

FPS Palm Rest

Gain comfort and improve your performance. Specially designed for FPS (but useful as well for other game genres) this detachable rubber palm support provides a strong grip and just the right height to effortlessly keep your hand in place when you game, in the right position to access both the WASD keys and the 6 G-Keys with your shortcuts.


Set the functionality of all the keys, assign pictures to Profiles for graphical recognition, store macros and share them, all with a very convenient and intuitive interface. The 700K´s internal memory will then allow you to bring up to three full configuration profiles anywhere you go.
