Razer has introduced the newest entry in its esports-focused Huntsman line featuring the company’s new analog optical switches. Capable of analog input, adjustable actuation, and dual-step actuation, the Huntsman V2 Analog keyboard is touted as Razer’s “most advanced switch to date.”

Having analog keys on a keyboard allows for pressure-sensitive actuations, which can be useful in Rocket League, for example, allowing you to tune your turning speed slowly with the light press of a directional button instead of a hard swivel.

Razer continues to take customizability to the next level with the ability to control actuation distance to the millimeter and implement two functions into one keystroke.

Analog switches on keyboards are still a rarity, with the CoolerMaster MK850 with AimPad technology and Wooting One as some of the select few available on the market.

The Razer Huntsman V2 Analog is a full RGB keyboard equipped with the company’s signature Chroma, a magnetic plush leatherette wrist rest, and additional media keys and a multi-function digital dial. Each valuable key will be protected with Doubleshot PBT keycaps, manufactured to have the thinnest font possible.

The keyboard will retail for $249.99 on Razer stores starting today and will be available on Amazon and Best Buy beginning Feb. 9.
