[Group buy] GMK Metro Alert - zFrontier Exclusive



GMK Metro Alert - zFrontier Exclusive

Introducing GMK Metro Alert, a keyset inspired by the eye-catching elements found on warning signs. The bright yellow of GE1 stands in stark contrast to the black CR, resulting in a simple yet striking combination. Watch out, where Metro Alert is, it takes center stage.

Designed by shower_king

Note: The Windows key was replaced with Code to better suit users who want to keep their keyboards OS-agnostic.

Pricing: The Group Buy price for GMK Metro Alert is $179. Upon reaching MOQ (250 sets across all official zFrontier sales channels), the price will drop to $165, in which case refunds will be issued via your original payment method.

Novelties

R1 novelties recreate the traditional warning and radioactive signs clad in black and yellow. The OS keys feature a striped lock in the same colors, in line with the Metro Alert theme.

Backspace and Enter have also been replaced by WARNING and DOWNLOAD, respectively.
