WHAT YOU NEED TO BUILD BAUER LITE
1. Bauer Lite Kit
Choose the color that speaks to you and the aesthetic you are wanting to achieve! This is where it all starts!
Switches are where you really get to customize the feel and sound of your board!
The spacebar needs one 7u stab. You'll also need two 2u stabs for split-backspace or three 2u stabs for full-backspace.
Complete the look with our vast selection of keycaps to put the final touch on your build!
We are thrilled to announce the release of Bauer Lite, and even more excited to offer a limited 1st Edition variant featuring a unique custom mold. This exclusive version will only be available until all 250 units are sold, making it a truly special offer.
The stunning opaque white design is complemented by included GMK Minimal keycaps for a sleek, all-white look. And as an added bonus, each unit comes with a hand-written authentication card, guaranteeing its authenticity as part of this inaugural release. Don't miss your chance to become one of the lucky few to own a 1st Edition Bauer Lite!
CUSTOMIZE TO YOUR WORKFLOW
CREATE A CUSTOM LAYOUT IN JUST A FEW CLICKS
VIA PROGRAMMING SOFTWARE
With your board plugged in, visit to caniusevia.com and select your board to start programming. It is a browser-based program, so you can change your layout anywhere! You can also program your board with QMK.
Create your layout
You have the flexibility to customize any key to perform the specific functions you need. Plus, you can even set up macros for tasks you frequently use. And hey, let's not forget, you can also have some fun and add in a few memes along the way. Let's make your keyboard work for you in the best way possible!
Change your backspace
If you are planning to use a full-backspace layout, go to the second table on the sidebar and turn on the full-backspace option! You will then see your layout change at the top!
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!
