Lightweight Case Offers Maximum Protection with Rugged Construction for Under $35, Withstands 10/65 Drop Tests
SAN DIEGO—May 2, 2017—Element Case, the creator of premium grade smartphone accessories, introduces REV as the newest addition to its product roster. REV is targeted as the high quality, super protective alternative to lower priced cases typically sold at big box stores and other large retailers. The case, which will retail for $34.95, is expected to attract a new audience of customers for Element Case, which is widely recognized as the long-time leader of the ultra-premium market, and has attained a reputation for continually redefining and innovating phone protection—in the brand’s words, “Doing what others can’t or won’t.”
The lightweight case is exceptionally rugged, with exclusive features specifically engineered to resist twisting and bending (X-Frame chassis) and withstand extreme bumps and drops (energy dissipating Drop Shock™ corners). REV has also been drop-tested beyond the industry’s Mil-Spec standards to deliver the ultimate in high impact protection. The unparalleled Element Case 10/65 testing subjects a single case and phone to being dropped from a height of 10 feet 65 consecutive times, as well as being tossed from a moving vehicle at 65 MPH.
“We created REV for the person who wants extreme protection for their mobile phone, without the bulkiness,” said Jeff Sasaki, Founder of Element Case. “This customer craves affordability and something that speaks to their lifestyle, and—quite frankly—not finding it from what’s currently available.”
Sasaki noted that REV gets its unique DNA from flagship Element Case products such as the precision-crafted Katana and rugged-tough M7—products that feature CNC machining and include such materials as high grade stainless steel and G10 composite, select hardwoods, and genuine top grain leather. Those products sell between $200–$300.
“The same dedication to innovative engineering and quality construction inherent in those ultra-premium cases went into the creation of REV,” added Sasaki. “The materials used for our newest case may be somewhat different than its predecessors, but there is no mistaking what family REV belongs to.”
REV for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, as well as for the new Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, will be available at numerous regional retailers including cellular locations, starting May 1, 2017. The new REV case comes in a choice of three colors: black, blue, and red, and can also be purchased online at the Element Case website.
