Tech21 Introduces Evo Elite and Evo Mesh Sport Phone Case Lines

Both Collections Are Available Exclusively at Apple and in New Colors to Match Apple Products

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Jul 7, 2015) - Tech21, the leader in impact protection for smartphones, tablets and laptops and the fastest-growing major case brand in the U.S.*, today announced its new Evo Elite and Evo Mesh Sport case ranges for the Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

The Evo Elite line delivers a smooth aluminum finish, precisely color matched to the iPhone's iconic aluminum backing. The Evo Mesh Sport line is the first on the market to feature colors identical to the Apple Watch Sport bands, providing consumers with the ability to match their case to their watch. Both collections were developed to complement Apple's sleek design, providing maximum impact protection without affecting phone performance.

"The new Evo Mesh Sport and Evo Elite with FlexShock™ mark Tech21's dedication to the consumer and to the cutting-edge," said Jason Roberts, CEO of Tech21. "We are proud to offer superior impact protection that works harmoniously with Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, giving consumers a choice of styles to suit their lifestyle."

Protection. Re-imagined.
An 18-month journey in engineering, from new production processes to Tech21's state-of-the-art robotic machinery to the creation of Tech21's own groundbreaking R&D lab, led to the development of the Evo Elite. And thanks to a unique material finish, the Evo Elite delivers the impossible -- a sleek metallic finish in space gray, silver and gold that's durable and scratch resistant.

Protection. Made Colorful.
Designed to complement an active lifestyle, the Evo Mesh Sport is available in blue, green, pink, smokey black and white -- perfectly matching Apple Watch Sport bands. Wrapping around the corners and back of the device in a stylish mesh pattern, the case provides a secure fit and feel, while offering a sleek and minimalistic look.

Slimmer. Lighter. Better Protection.
Tech21 does what other case-makers cannot by combining science, engineering and British design to create cases that address three core benefits: style, protection and performance. As technology advances, Tech21 has evolved its materials to meet the needs of today's consumers. The result is the world's most advanced impact protection material -- FlexShock™. Featured in both the Evo Elite and Evo Mesh Sport, the material absorbs and dissipates force and can withstand drops up to 6.6 feet. Ultra-thin and lightweight, Tech21's unique FlexShock™ material results in impact protection that's up to 30 percent thinner and 150 percent lighter than competitor cases offering similar levels of protection.

Tested to the Limit.
Each case collection has been rigorously tested to both Apple's and Tech21's own demanding standards to ensure perfect compatibility with Apple iPhone 6 and 6 plus. This guarantees a perfect fit with comfortable access to every button, port and jack. There will be no loss in signal quality and no interference to Wi-Fi, mobile networks, Bluetooth syncing or features like Apple Pay, which is a challenge faced by other case brands in the market. Core functionality such as camera, acoustics and sensors (Touch ID) will work the same with the case on or off. For more information about how Apple puts its cases to the test, visit here.

The Evo Mesh Sport and Evo Elite are now available in Apple stores nationwide and in the online Apple store. The Evo Elite can be purchased in space gray, silver and gold for $49.00 for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The Evo Mesh Sport can be purchased in blue, green, pink, smokey black and white for $39.00 MSRP for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
