B$Z: BioLogic Launches iPhone 6 Case at Interbike

Lightweight and easy-to-pocket weatherproof case comes in sizes for iPhone 5, Galaxy S4 and the newest XL-sized phones

BioLogic, a specialist in urban cycling gear, today announced the WeatherCase for iPhone 6, a bike-mountable, weatherproof case, that protects iPhones during commutes, rainy-day rides, and workouts. The WeatherCase for iPhone 6 is available now with a version for the iPhone 6 Plus version to follow.

“iPhones are becoming the cycle computer of choice for an increasing number of cyclists,” said Eric Mah, BioLogic Brand Manager. “But bike rides often include lots of sweat, rain, and dirt, and an iPhone needs protection from all of that. With its slim, pocketable size and rock-solid AnchorPoint mount, the WeatherCase is the smart choice for Apple’s new larger-screen phones.”

Made from sonically-welded TPU with rain-proof zippers, the WeatherCase provides full access to the touchscreen, front and rear cameras and side volume/power buttons. Double zippers allow access to headphones/charge port while the phone is in the case and CushionFit™ padding keeps phones snug and protects from vibration. The WeatherCase even delivers clear voice quality when making calls with the phone inside the case.

The WeatherCase attaches to handlebars or stems with the robust AnchorPoint mounting system. Featuring a strong 4-point clamp, the AnchorPoint far surpasses conventional snap mount systems. Constructed from durable fiber-reinforced nylon, a positive tightening mechanism keeps the clamp from loosening while riding. The mount can be oriented vertically or horizontally and is included with the WeatherCase.

“Thanks to their larger screens, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are super easy to use with iPhone cycling apps like BikeBrain,” continued Mah. “Now, no matter what size phone riders choose, there’s a WeatherCase to keep it safe.”

With the launch of the WeatherCase for iPhone 6, the BioLogic Bike Mount WeatherCase lineup now includes four models to fit popular phones: the WeatherCase for iPhone for iPhone 5 series phones; the WeatherCase for Galaxy designed for mid-size phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S3/S4, Nokia Lumia 930 and Xiaomi Redmi 1S; and the WeatherCase XL to fit larger phones including the HTC One (M8), Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G3, Sony Xperia Z2 and Xiaomi Mi 3.
