Since our last Slide 4.0 update, we've been working hard on finalizing the design, quoting, and timelines. And now we finally have the good news you've been waiting for. We are planning to launch a pre-order campaign for a limited edition Slide 4.0 on our website in October. Our goal is to ship the first round of Slide 4.0s to the first pre-order recipients by January. That means you will need to order very quickly upon release to get in the first tier. Available quantities, pricing, and second/third tier timeline goals will be announced at a later date.
SLIDE 4.0 LE1 DETAILS
The Slide 4.0 LE1 will be a very special product. All the major components will be machined from aircraft aluminum while the components will be stainless steel. And yes, because we've had so many requests, we are also considering a titanium version of the LE1 with stainless components. If we proceed with titanium, it will not be available in the first shipping tier.
As mentioned previously, the Slide 4.0 profile needs to match the Slide 3.0 (length, height, and shape) so it will work with the other components in the Keyport ecosystem including our unique line of detachable Modules and Faceplates. It will also be compatible with Key Blades and Nodes from all previous versions (V.01, 2.0, 3.0), so you won’t need to worry about getting new Key Blades made if you’re already a Slide user. Although, instead of nickel plated brass, the Slide 4.0 Limited Edition will come with stainless steel Nodes. It will only be available in a 4-Port version as this has been the most popular version of the Slide 3.0 and most people are carrying less physical keys these days. Like the Slide 3.0 and Pivot line, the Slide 4.0 will also work with our KeyportID Lost & Found service. Serial numbers will be laser engraved on the body.
SLIDE 4.0 FEATURE REVEAL 1
We will be revealing new features of the Slide 4.0 LE1 in upcoming updates. This update’s feature reveal is something we’re really excited about. It’s a spring-loaded D-Ring that you can easily detach and install with just a push and twist, making it easy to remove attached items from your Slide, like your auto fob. You can attach a ParaPull or a standard split ring. Here's a demo:
