Gateron Clear

Updated on: 27 July, 2021

Gateron make some of the smoothest linear switches available. However, this is my least favorite Gateron linear switch due to the very light activation force. The Gateron Clear key switch has a very light and soft feel with only a 35g activation force, significantly lighter than than the traditional red switches. You may feel that these are too light for typing or gaming and you tend to bottom them out that can cause finger fatigue. It is hard to type fast without bottoming out this switch as the activation force is so light. I recommend testing these switches first before committing.
