MonsGeek MG M2 QMK Mechanical Keyboard Kit

M2 is a 1800 compact QMK and south-facing aluminum barebone keyboard.

1800 compact layout are efficient, and ideal for users who want to maintain the full-size of the keyboard while save desk space.

Note: M2 requires 2 x 1.5u function keys (ALT/FN) at R1. It is compatible with Akko MDA / SAL profile keycaps. Given M2 intl’ version is QMK programmable, users can literally program any key; hence, any keycap sets with alternate 1.5u R1 keys are theoretically compatible with M2 such as Marrs Green, World Tour Tokyo Cherry Profile etc.

Disclaimer: we do NOT sell domestic non-QMK version on global store. All M series wired models you see are international version exclusive.

PCB Mount/Screw-in stabilizers tend to vibrate less. M2 uses Akko transparent white stabilizers (un-assembled) with nylon housing in case users want to lubricate.

Gasket Mounted Style

With the Gasket-mounted structure, the isolation between the plate and the case gives a unique sound and feel compared to other mounting styles.



South-facing PCB

The south-facing PCB of M2 1800 mechanical keyboard barebone avoids causing interference with Cherry profile keycaps, offering more compatibility and flexibility.

New Silver Accent

While M2 silver comes with golden accent, MonsGeek has picked the new silver accent on other models. MonsGeek will start to offer standalone accent for sale to better personalize each unit based on user preference.



N-Key Rollover

The N-Key Rollover technology allows all keys to work simultaneously and ensures every keystroke is recorded and prevents ghosting.


Engraved Back Design

M2 Aluminum Kit QMK version has adopted the new engraved back design with a re-sized sticker for aesthetics purposes.




MonsGeek M2 custom aluminum kit supports VIA for cross-platform (Linux/Mac/Windows) advanced keyboard configuration.

QMK is currently undergoing certification. Users who wish to implement it before the official pull request can download the source code.

This feature is exclusively for the international version of M2.




Need More Foam?

Monsgeek has developed its own budget custom material that performs equally as well as poron. Meanwhile, MonsGeek M2 custom kit comes with an additional sponage case foam to reduce case ping.

*Disclaimer: Using thicker foam may reduce flex, whether to include it or not is down to your personal preference.

PET Insulation Layer

A PET insulation layer has been added to the bottom case in order to prevent any short circuit issues. It’s rare for these issues to occur but we want to add extra protection.

Accessories to Play With

Extra teflon pads included for users who wish to perform a force break mod.

Extra tape for users who wish to perform a tape mod.

MonsGeek includes a default 3mm custom-made foam for a balanced feeling. Disclaimer: the foam will affect the overall sound profile and flex.


For users who want a softer and more flexible typing experience.


For users who want a balanced feeling between sound and flex.

  2. Aarkleon

    Absolutely amazing for the price. If you’re looking for a 1800 compact this is the one.

  3. noah052 (verified owner)

    The MonsGeek M-series has proven with the M1 and now the M2 to be the best value keyboards on the market. What you get for the price is just incredible. The M2 delivers a comfortable and customizable user experience with impressive quality at a very low price.

  4. JT (verified owner)

    simply amazing.

  5. Anna (verified owner)

    This is amazing. Nothing on the market can beat the value for the price of this board especially in this layout. I own boards that are much more premium and expensive. I still been using the M2 as my daily driver since I’ve built it. Really impressed.
