HyperX Red Switch

HyperX Red key switches are linear-style switches. Their name derives from the fact that when you press down their travel path is just a line. They don’t have that “bump” other switch types use to provide tactile feedback. Because linear switches don’t have to reset past a bump to detect a repeat press, you’ll enjoy the edge in speed if you’re playing something that requires double or triple-taps. The smoother movement of linear switches also makes these switches quieter than tactile and clicky switches.
