Opals are smooth, linear switches for custom mechanical keyboards. They feature opaque full nylon housings, POM standard length stems, 62g standard springs, and come fully hand-lubricated for a plug-and-play consistent sound and feel.

The deep and light blue colors are inspired by blue opal stones and happen to match some of Parallel’s other internal components like our o-rings and PCBs.

The most distinct feature of Opal switches is how deep and full they sound, even in a stock state. If you’ve been looking for something with a classic Cherry top-out sound and feel, with a modern twist of smoothness and lower pitch, give these a try!
