After reaching the funding goal in just under 6 hours, Mountain sets a stretch goal to enable a black anodized aluminium variant
Freiburg, Germany -- (13.03.2020) Everest is a fully customizable, mechanical gaming keyboard that is a revolution in choice. Brought to you by Mountain, Everest can be pre-ordered here, from 95€ ($90 / £85 – depending on exchange rate). The Everest keyboard is available in Barebone, Core (TKL) and Max versions. The new stretch goal enables a variant of Everest in Midnight Black, a deep black anodized aluminum design, if the campaign reaches at least 100,000€ before it ends on April 2nd. If reached, the stretch goal will enable every backer to choose between Gunmetal Gray and Midnight Black.
Many backers requested stretch goals and a large part of the community asked for an all-black version of Everest. Mountain’s focus on the user-centric approach doesn’t end with the product design.
“We appreciate all the support we have received so far and continue to listen to customer feedback,” says Tobias Brinkmann, Founder & CEO of Mountain. “With the incredible success of Everest on Kickstarter, it didn’t take long until we received the first inquiries of stretch goals and a Black version was in particular high demand. We are all about freedom of choice and delivering products that customers ask for, so we are pleased to be able to do so with the Midnight Black Edition!”
Featuring black anodized aluminum rather than a cheap coating, Mountain doesn’t cut corners with product quality and stays true to its user-centric four pillar philosophy: Innovation, Performance, Aesthetics and Modularity.
Everest is being released in three versions: Everest Core Barebone, Everest Core and Everest Max, available on Kickstarter from 95€ ($90 / £85 – depending on exchange rate).

Some of us are old school gamers, starting out with Quake world on PC and Samura i Shodown on the Neo Geo. Others battled through the World of Warcraft or climbed the ranks in Counter-Strike. We think that, like the ever-evolving PC hardware industry, competitive and recreational gaming is as much about the journey as it is about the destination.
