Everest is a revolution in choice and built on MOUNTAIN’s user-centric design philosophy: Innovation, Performance, Aesthetics and Modularity. Featuring patent-pending designs, Everest was created from the ground up to enable peak performance. The Everest Core can be upgraded easily with the separately sold Numpad with display keys, Media Dock with display dial and/or palm rest.


Set your desk ablaze with the widest array of RGB features we can muster. 16.7 million colors and numerous RGB modes are at your disposal. With individual RGB lighting for every individual key and a slick RGB strip around Everest’s entire body, the choice is yours. For additional synchronization we also added Razer Chroma™ RGB support.


We selected the gold standard of mechanical switches. Prefer something different? The modular approach makes it easy for you to replace the stock switches with any other compatible hot-swap variant, no soldering required.


Everest’s unique patent-pending riser feet design enables a secure and sturdy stand that goes beyond the capabilities of flimsy plastic solutions. In addition, a set of spacers allows you to find the perfect height so that Everest will always meet you at the perfect angle.


Sound is a crucial aspect of every mechanical keyboard, and Everest goes the extra mile to achieve superiority. Featuring genuine Cherry stabilizers with tight tolerances, factory-tuned with Glaze GPL 205 Grade 0. Everest's stabilizers do away with rattle and noise, placing them in a league of their own.


Your Everest is supported by our Base Camp™ software, designed and developed from the ground up to equip you with all the tools you need for your ascension.

Everest Core

Looks great

The key board came in a really cool bad with everything easy to find and understand. I also like that the spare switches are all of the mx switches that can be put into the keyboard, letting you try out other switches if you want to change the switches down the line. Great keyboard 10/10

100% quality

I upgraded the key caps to the pbt and the keyboard has a premium quality feel. Nice weight, great looking brushes frame, no flex, and the blue switches sound and feel amazing. I also got my product in a week shipping time. 100% the keyboard I was looking for.

First Mechanical Keyboard

This is my first mechanical keyboard. So I'm probably a little biased.

I love the feel and the sound of the Cherry MX Red switches that I chose. The overall construction of this keyboard is solid. I really enjoy the included spare switches so you can experiment with what you might like to try in the future.

The packaging was next level. Everything is nicely presented and organized.

Overall this is a great keyboard for those looking to get into the world of mechanical keyboards.

Great Keyboard. Almost great repairability.

The Keboard in itself is amazing, the build quality is impeccable and it is really well thought through. I initially bougt the Everest Max and was very happy with it.

Until it broke.. Mind you, it was entirely my fault and had nothing to do with the quality of the product. I was actually pleasantly surprised when I opened it up to attempt repair. No glue, no nonsense layout and only two types of screws, which were all easy to reach. The ports are actually seperate small pcb's which can be easily taken off and swapped, no glue, no solder. 10/10 so far, cudos to the engineers.

However, and this is something that really grinds my gears: There is no way to get replacements for those PCB's. You guys where soo close to providing the best product in terms of sustainability and repairability i've come across in a long time and you just stumble in that last, crucial step. Why do you even bother engineering it in such a way that everything is easily accessible and supposedly easy to repair when you don't provide your proprietary parts to the public? I would happily even pay a premium for them.

It's a shame really, because now i have to buy an entire new keyboard, when only one small, easily swappable pcb is broken. The rest is perfectly functioning e-waste now.

Anyway, after long consideration I still bought a second keyboard. That should tell you how high quality this product is. Would really love to see an option to order replacement parts in the future, though.
