Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do you ship to Brazil, China, or Russia?
A. We will not be shipping directly to Brazil, China, or Russia for group buy, if you are located in one of these countries and would like to join the GB, please use a US Proxy.

Q. When will this be shipping?
A. The current shipping estimate is Q4 2024.

Q. What are the “tendrils”?
A.The tendrils are interchangeable accent feet magnetically mounted to the bottom of the board. Backlit by LEDs to highlight their natural curves to create a subtle glow, they are what make Evolv unique.

Q. What layout limitations are there with Hotswap vs Solderable PCB?
A. All available layout options will be present both on Hotswap and Solderable PCBs.

Q. What does “weight-less” design mean?
A. Evolv does not include an extra weight, instead opting to use the entirety of the bottom case to create heft.

Q. Is there an option to use a standard encoder?
A. Evolv ships with the standard EC11 encoder along with the joystick. With the PCB supporting both options, end-users are free to choose which they’d like to use.

Q. What’s up with the weird right shift?
A. The 1.5u shift and the 12.75u bottom row are a compromise: aesthetically, the arrows line-up allowing Evolv to maintain .25u spacing around every blocker, while functionally, Evolv can fit the fourth key into what is typically a three key column on blocked 75s.
