Aluminum DIY kits are now more accessible than ever!

Even at only 99$ it’s still the best premium option to begin your custom mechanical keyboard journey with.

It comes with extra teflon pads (in case you want to perform the Force Break mod) and tape (in case you want to perform a Tape mod). The M1 offers flexibility for you to modify it and make it truly yours while also offering a great out-of-the-box experience with MonsGeek’s custom foam and gasket mount.

Not just another 75% aluminum DIY Kit.


MonsGeek strictly manages to reduce unnecessary costs through its advanced supply chain to deliver the best value for users.


MonsGeek comes with a PC plate as standard and offers other plates separately. We also offer additional tape and teflon pads for potential mod.


M1 will be available directly, through our partners and from other mainstream shopping platforms as accessibility is our ultimate goal.

M Series QC Guide

Learn about what to expect with the order. MonsGeek provides its standard on how we manage aluminum finishes during QC process. Click icon on the left to download. 


PCB Mount/Screw-in stabilizers tend to vibrate less. M1 uses Akko stabilizers (un-assembled) with nylon housing in case users want to lubricate.

Renovated Encoder

The encoder has been designed to avoid scratching the case and offers more stability.


Golden Accent

Adding a touch of class and elegance, we opted to add a beautiful golden accent so that no matter which way you look at it, you’ll fall in love over and over again.


South-facing PCB

The south-facing PCB of the M1 avoids causing interference with Cherry profile keycaps, offering more compatibility and flexibility. (Kind note: The “Enter” key of M1 ISO layout version could be compatible with 3-pin mx switches only.)


MonsGeek M1 supports VIA for cross-platform (Linux/Mac/Windows) advanced keyboard configuration.

This feature is exclusively for international version of M1.




3mm Case Foam

Monsgeek has developed its own budget custom material that performs equally as well as poron.

*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.

Optional Plates to consider


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



For a stiffer and higher pitched sound profile, for those who want to be heard



For the softest, flexiest typing feeling out of the three.

    Recently purchased the Black Monsgeek M1 and I am very happy with how this board sounds and feels. A very good DIY kit for only $100. One of the most fun boards to mod that I have ever tried. Build quality is great, no major flaws that I saw.

    No reviews yet?!?! That’s ridiculous! If you’re looking for a good entry level premium keyboard look no further. The Monsgeek M1 is an amazing board and well worth the price of $100. It comes with everything you need to easily build, but gives you the space to customize it for your own look and feel. When this product comes back into stock I definitely will be ordering another!

    I do want to mention (though I don’t have issue with it), the M1 is not wireless bluetooth or 2.4ghz. It comes with a quality coiled USB-C cable, the length should serve most.

    My build is done in Purple, gasket mounted POM plate, Hippo keycaps PBT, Gateron North Pole switches (lubed).
    Mods: Tape mod, holee mod (on the stabilizers included), force broken.

    $100 for this keyboard is amazing. The included foams and stabilizers are great, the cable isn’t braded, but it is great quality please keep up the good work and prices, this keyboard is so underrated.
