Gateron Low profile 2.0 Switches are released|What are the changes compared to the previous model?


On January 10, 2023, Gateron released its official Instagram to announce the official release of the Low Profile 2.0 Switch.

This posting is in the form of a detailed explanation of the January 5, 2023 posting.

As for Gateron Low-profile Switches 1.0, I personally did not like it that much in terms of “weak return”, so I am very excited about 2.0.

A total of six types of switches were announced: three upgraded versions of the existing Red/Brown/Blue and three new switches, Wisteri/Daisy/Aloe.

However, Wisteria /Daisy /Aloe are only available in NuPhy.

Updated versions of previous models announced by Gateron are available for individual purchase from, as well as from NuPhy and Keychron.


In September 2023, “Cowberry” and “Moss” from NuPhy and “Banana” from Gateron were announced.

In fact, there are two types of “Gateron Low-profile 2.0 Switches” announced this time.

One is the Gateron KS-33 Low Profile 2.0 Switch Set, a series that evolved from Gateron Low-profile 1.0 to 2.0, announced on the official Gateron website.

The other is the NuPhy x Gateron collaboration model, announced at the same time as the launch of the NuPhy Air96.

Nominally, we refer to this as the “NuPhy model.

Comparing the new low-profile mechanical key switches to previous low-profile switches, it can be seen that the new low-profile mechanical key switches have an increased total travel and a deeper stroke that is closer to that of the normal profile.

The fact that it is pre-lubricated would be a major point.
