Corsair K100 Air: Wireless mechanical low-profile keyboard unveiled

Ultra-thin low-profile keyboards are currently in high demand. After the noble business model Logitech MX Mechanical (our review) and the Razer DeathStalker V2 Pro (our review), the Corsair K100 Air is a new keyboard that can be used wirelessly and relies on mechanical Cherry MX switches.

The Corsair K100 Air in detail

With the Corsair K100 Air, a new high-end keyboard awaits you at the beginning of October, which turns out particularly flat and leaves hardly anything to be desired in terms of its range of functions. The low-profile keyboard has a height of only 11 millimeters at the flattest point and relies on a simple and elegant look made of brushed aluminum, which we already know from the manufacturer’s other keyboards.

This makes the K100 Air minimally taller than the Razer DeathStalker V2 Pro (8 millimeters at its thinnest point), at least in terms of the pure case, although the keycaps are apparently much tighter, so the overall height of the Corsair keyboard should ultimately be lower.

The manufacturer also relies on mechanical Cherry MX Ultra Low Profile key switches, which impress with their responsive, tactile feedback. Whether the new Air model, like the K100 RGB from 2020 (our review) supports full N-key rollover, Corsair unfortunately did not reveal so far.

Free choice of connectivity

When it comes to connection options, however, the Corsair K100 Air is extremely versatile and comes up with a whole three options for connection. You can choose to connect the keyboard almost latency-free via Corair’s Slipstream Wireless technology to a PC or notebook, or use a Bluetooth connection with up to three devices without a dongle.

In wired mode via USB, the keyboard even supports an 8,000 Hz polling rate for the best possible performance. The manufacturer claims up to 50 hours of battery life in wireless mode with RGB lighting enabled, while the runtime can be extended up to 200 hours if you can do without the bling-bling.

What’s more, the Corsair K100 Air lets you switch back and forth between connected wireless devices at the touch of a button, allowing you to switch from PC to tablet, for example. And all that with secure AES-128-bit encryption.

Four fully programmable macro keys allow you to run complex macros, additional actions, and special media keys and a programmable aluminum volume control provide extra convenient control. 8 MB of internal memory lets you store up to 50 profiles, so you can switch between preset macros and lighting effects at the touch of a button.

Axon Hyper-Processing technology gives you almost infinite customization options, while iCUE software allows for dynamic wireless RGB control, button remapping, and many other settings.

Price and Availability

The low-profile Corsair K100 Air keyboard will be available in stores from October 04, 2022. The manufacturer has not revealed details on pricing so far. Even the already available teaser website does not yet provide any concrete details in this regard.
