All the way back in early 2020 a company we had never heard of announced a really cool looking modular gaming keyboard. The company was Mountain and the keyboard was the Everest. The concept was pretty cool you had a TLK “core” keyboard and then you had optional number pad with four custom “display keys” (much like an Elgato Stream Deck) and then a removable media dock with a pretty cool display dial all of which are part of the “Max” version of the keyboard. Everest actually sent us their Makalu 67 lightweight gaming mouse and we loved it so much we gave it our Recommended Award, so I was pretty excited when they reached out to send over the Everest Max gaming keyboard. Is this the ultimate gaming keyboard? Read on as we find out!
The Mountain Everest Max comes in a pretty large box. On one side it says “Reach Your Summit” and on the other side there is a full breakdown of many of the features of the keyboard and a list of what comes in the box and specifications.
Opening the box up in the top section you’ll find the keyboard. The bottom section of the box sort of pulls out like a drawer where you’ll find the rest of the parts of the keyboard and accessories. With everything out of the box we have the Everest Core TKL keyboard, wrist rest, number pad, media dock, USB-A to USB-C cable (main cable), USB-C to USB-C cable (for the number pad), 8 keyboard feet spacers, extra ESC keycap, keycap and switch combo removal tool, and a user’s manual.
