Corsair STRAFE MK.2 Mechanical Keyboard Detailed Features

The STRAFE MK.2 RGB supports the full spectrum of RGB color. The keyboard, by default on startup, will be in Standard Mode, and display a default pattern known as Rainbow Wave.


The bottom of the STRAFE MK.2 is your standard affair, no special cable routing channels, and small rubber feet. The bottom of the case, or frame, is made out of abs plastic.


New to the STRAFE family, dedicated multimedia keys. Corsair took a design idea from the K70 and added dedicated multimedia keys to the MK.2. The multimedia keys features stop, play/pause, forward, backwards, mute and a volume wheel. To the left of the volume roller we see 3 tiny, dedicated LEDs (non-RGB) that act as indicators for NUM Lock, CAPS Lock, and SCROLL Lock.


Included in the box is some extra keys that feature a rubberized and textured top layer. The above configuration of switching out the W,A,S,D keys is for FPS gamers. Those who utilize the keys extensively while gaming will appreciate the quick homing function the keys provide as well as the slightly angled profile they provide.

Are you a MOBA gamer? No problem, Corsair has you covered there as well. Not only did Corsair provide rubberized W,A,S,D keys, they have also provided Q,W,E,R,D,F keys for the MOBA gamers out there.


The Corsair STRAFE MK.2 key-switches come in two flavors, Cherry MX Red, and Cherry MX Silent. The cherry MX Reds are smooth and linear, while the cheery MX silents are smooth and silent. The silent variant eliminates the need for sound dampening O-rings while maintaining that smooth linear feel of the Red variant.
