IRL simply stands for "in real life".

Bauer Lite IRL Editions will only be sold at in-person events we attend. We may also donate them as giveaways for events we do not attend.

Follow us on all socials and sign up for our newsletter.

When you order a Bauer Lite IRL Edition at an event, we will ship your order to you free of charge.

You will not receive the board at the table at the time of purchasing.

This allows us to put no limit on the number available at the event, as carrying physical stock is very cumbersome.

You must visit the Omnitype booth to purchase. There will be a physical unit on our table for you to look at in person.

Yes, you can add anything else we have in stock to your order.

Breakaway backspace plate design

The Bauer Lite plate is designed to support both full and split-backspace options without the normal compromises of your switch being crooked from the lack of proper support. We achieved this with a unique breakaway plate design. By default, the plate supports split-backspace, but just break off the center support with some pliers to use full-backspace!

I got this at Keycon and I love it! Definitely the best Bauer lite color way so far. Super easy to build and it sounds and feels way better than what I expected for the price. If you have a chance to get one, do.
