The varied CHERRY STRAIT premium keyboard family


With the successful STRAIT product family, CHERRY offers the ideal keyboard to suit all tastes and purposes.

Auerbach, 5. October 2012 – Peripheral device specialist CHERRY attaches great importance to developing PC keyboards with the best possible ergonomics, high functionality and attractive design. As part of the STRAIT family, CHERRY offers corded keyboards with various characteristics – depending on the customer’s budget and preference. A keyboard can even be a real designer gem, as verified by the redwood special edition CHERRY STRAIT XT Testa Motari, winner of the red dot design award. The premium keyboard CHERRY STRAIT BLACK also has a unique look with its shimmering blue key contours. Clean lines and an ultra-flat, functional, puristic design are the CHERRY STRAIT premium basic version’s attributes.

The CHERRY STRAIT XT Testa Motari edition, honoured with the red dot design award, is available in three redwood variations: Vavona burl, Macassar ebony and Satin walnut.

The natural wood grain makes each and every one of these designer edition keyboards an attractive and unique accessory for design-conscious customers. The wood is sourced from certified and sustainably-managed forests in Europe. Tropical wood is not used. This unique edition is produced in collaboration with Testa Motari, a design manufacturer based in Germany’s Ore Mountains.


The STRAIT BLACK is not an extravagant redwood design, but elegant black with shimmering blue key contours. Tried-and-tested peripheral device know-how makes the STRAIT BLACK a convenient office tool, particularly low-noise whisper keystroke allows for quiet typing. With its timeless, elegant design, the STRAIT BLACK looks good on any desk.


The CHERRY STRAIT offers functional, puristic elegance with its metallic look, ultra-flat design and high-quality finish, ensuring lasting reliability. The equally quiet whisper keystroke makes the CHERRY STRAIT ideal for everyday work. Five hot keys to control the media player ensure higher user convenience even in your free time.


The CHERRY STRAIT family of USB keyboards are ideal for laptops and PCs. Plug & Play ensures starting up will be effortless.
