- Buckling Spring switches
- Model M Dye Sub PBT keycaps
The Spacesaver M is the Ultra Classic configured specifically for Apple/Mac users. The SpaceSaver M offers the touch and feel of the Model M buckling spring keyboard merged with some of the system and audio controls seen on Apple and Mac keyboards.
Buckling springs originated in IBM’s mechanical keyboard as a fundamentally different kind of switch mechanism. Featuring a coil spring that sits between the keycap and a pivoting hammer that collapses when clicked, the spring provides a loud, tactile feedback.
Model M-Inspired Keycaps
The buckling spring keycaps are made of PBT polymer. The dye-sublimated legends compliment the authentic feel and classic design, reminiscent of the original Model-M keycaps.
