The Genesis Thor 303 TKL Silent Switch is a new version of the already available Thor 303 TKL, which is offered with the particularly quiet Outemu Peach Silent switches.

The mechanical switches are interchangeable and are characterized by a fast response time, a 2 mm activation point and a lower trigger force of 40G, making them smoother to press than the typical red or brown switches. At the same time, they are 30 percent quieter than brown switches and offer a life cycle of 50 million clicks.

The hot-swap technology is a major distinguishing feature of the Thor 303 TKL models. It enables switches to be replaced immediately. The corresponding tool is included in the scope of delivery.

Aluminum housing and software

A total of 25 lighting modes are available to choose from. Further adjustments are also possible within the accompanying software. Macros can also be created here.

The updated version of the Thor 303 TKL is characterized by improved stabilizers, which are also pre-lubricated and thus not only enable quieter operation, but also reflect the key movements even more smoothly.
