Tuesday, December 11, 2012

TAIPEI, TAIWAN – December 11, 2012 – BioLogic, a specialist in urban cycling gear, today announced its Bike Mount for iPhone 5 case and Soft Shield for iPad cover, expanding their line of protective accessories for electronic devices.

The Bike Mount for iPhone 5 is a fully-enclosed, hard plastic case that is secured with a heavy-duty, double-pivot latch. A welded, touch-sensitive membrane on the front allows full use of the iPhone’s applications, while a soft silicone liner provides a secure fit while providing shock resistance for the phone. Integrated RidgeSeal technology forms a tight seal between the case cover and liner for protection against the elements. A clear plastic window on the back allows full use of the rear camera, even while riding. The Bike Mount for iPhone 5 can fit on handlebars or stems with a diameter of 38 mm (1.5”) or less.

“The iPhone is integral to the lives of many people and our Bike Mount allows them to extend its use to their ride,” stated Luke Hsu, Biologic Project Manager. “The iPhone 5 makes for a great cycling computer, especially with so many terrific cycling apps out there, including our own BioLogic BikeBrain.”

In addition to the new iPhone case, BioLogic also announced the release of its Soft Shield for iPad, a waterproof fabric cover for iPad.

“For quite a few of us, the iPad has become indispensable travel gear and out in the real world an iPad needs a bit of protection from things like sweat, rain, dust, and dirty fingers,” said Hsu. “The Soft Shield keeps the elements out and your iPad safe inside.”

The Soft Shield for iPad is crafted from a waterproof, sonically-welded fabric to meet rigorous IP66 water and particle protection standards. The dark grey linen-like fabric perfectly matches the underlying texture of iOS, Dark Linen, and is a non-slip material, making the iPad easier to handle even with gloves on. With the Soft Shield on, iPad features are fully accessible, including the front touchscreen, rear camera, volume controls, and on/off button. The Soft Shield also includes a TRRS in-line earphone adapter, so users are able to listen to and control their iPad through earphones equipped with in-line remotes.

The Soft Shield is custom-designed for Apple’s iPad so the fit is snug — ensuring optimal touchscreen function. The opening of the cover is sealed with a roll top closure, the same system used on the most reliable and durable waterproof bags. The cover measures 29 cm x 20.2 cm (11.4" x 7.9") and is compatible with iPad 1, iPad 2, and the new iPad.

The Bike Mount for iPhone 5 has a MSRP of US$50/€50 and the Soft Shield for iPad has a MSRP of US$28/€28. Both products will be available for purchase online soon as well as at select BioLogic retailers worldwide.TAIPEI, TAIWAN – December 11, 2012 – BioLogic, a specialist in urban cycling gear, today announced its Bike Mount for iPhone 5 case and Soft Shield for iPad cover, expanding their line of protective accessories for electronic devices.
