Challenger Ultimate


The CHALLENGER Ultimate gaming keyboard is the highest end keyboard from the CHALLENGER series. True to the CHALLENGER name, the CHALLENGER Ultimate has cooling fans – but this time there’s more of everything: more colors for back-lighting, more macro keys with both dedicated and definable macro keys, more connectivity with a built in sound card.

USD $89.99


Fully backlit.

Improving on the revolutionary Challenger keyboard design, the Challenger Ultimate features a 256-color backlight for lighting the way you want it.

All out Macro key customization, with onboard memory.

Keep your custom commands at a finger’s distance with 10 dedicated programmable macro keys as well as the ability to select any 4 other keys to become macro keys too. Allowing up to 14 macro keys at a time, and 70 total programmable macros across 5 profiles.

Keep your hands cool.

The Challenger Pro keyboard features the same great fan located directly on the keyboard.

Dual USB ports & built-in Sound card.

For easy access, two USB ports are included with the Challenger Ultimate for your convenience. In addition, there’s a built-in sound card so you can directly connect your headset to the keyboard.

Change-able keycaps.

Add some flair to your input weapon with red W-A-S-D and arrow key keycaps.
