ROCCAT Vulcan 120 AIMO Review

Closer Look
ROCCAT have employed a rather unique design language when putting together the Vulcan 120 AIMO. The ROCCAT Titan keyswitches are almost entirely above the aluminium backplate.

From the left, this can be seen to produce a very thin keyboard, by putting the majority of its bulk above the faceplate, forming a wedge-shaped keyboard that tapers to only 8mm at the front.

One of the key features (pardon the pun) is the ROCCAT Titan mechanical key switch, a mechanical key that ROCCAT have built from the ground up. The key switch features a 1.8mm actuation point and 3.6mm of overall travel with the aim of providing a tactile feel with absolute precision.

The key switch itself isn’t the only optimisation, ROCCAT have also trimmed down the keycaps, removing around 50% of the overall mass which helps to improve rebound and key feel, while also giving the keyboard a unique appearance.

The underside of the keyboard is pretty basic, using some large rubber pads for grip. The stand off feet in the corners are rubber-tipped; when flipped out they increase the keyboards height from 18mm to 30mm.
