Epic Gear Purple

Epic Gear Purple switches have some of the worst molds we have ever encountered. The poor manufacturing manifests as roughness and friction during keypresses.

Their force curve, which showcases sharp tactility and minimal upstroke force drop off, is unusual among MX Blue clones. With better tooling, Epic Gear Purple switches might have been a widespread success.

The switches also handle LEDs well. Onboard lenses focus their light onto keycap legends, increasing brightness. The lenses don’t work as well for wider legends, which have dimmed edges.
