ACTION READY.

CRAFTED COMPACT.

ROG Strix Scope TKL is a compact, tenkeyless mechanical keyboard with Xccurate Design – an extra-wide Ctrl key that's easier to feel and find in the FPS frenzy. With a choice of Cherry MX switches for optimal feel and reliability, an all-aluminum top plate for strength and style, and more customizable Aura RGB lighting than we've ever engineered into a ROG keyboard, Strix Scope TKL empowers you to play like a pro and rise above the battlefield crowd.

Note: Keyboard layout may differ slightly depending on the region or language.

TKL FORM FACTOR FOR FPS

ROG Strix Scope TKL is a high-performance mechanical gaming keyboard with a small footprint, freeing up space on your worktop for broader mouse movements – perfect for the lower sensitivity settings that slow the reticle for leveled-up aiming accuracy. The keyboard is topped with an aluminum faceplate for everyday resilience, and finished with a striking slash aesthetic for a little touch of style.

MADE FOR PORTABILITY

The compact and frameless design of ROG Strix Scope TKL is ideal for minimalists, or those who simply need more space. The keyboard comes with a detachable cable, making it easier and safer to stow and carry in a backpack. The Type-C cord also doubles as a charging lead for mobile devices while on the go.

READY FOR DAY & NIGHT

The Quick-Toggle Switch prepares ROG Strix Scope TKL for gaming or the daily grind, toggling the top row between media or function (Fn) key input – so it's easy to switch modes for work or play.

AURA SYNC

ROG Strix Scope TKL is loaded with vibrant RGB illumination for you to command. There's an individual RGB LED under every key, RGB lock indicators and an RGB ROG logo. It even projects an arresting RGB underglow from below, extending the lighting beyond the keyboard. Powered by Aura Sync, the entire color spectrum and a range of dynamic lighting effects are at your command to create a complete system that's uniquely yours. Strix Scope TKL's lighting is also easily synced with the extensive Aura ecosystem, so it's easy to build a gaming environment that really shines.
