tech21 Introduces New Impact Clear Case & Evo Glass Screen Shield

Materials Still Matter: Completely Clear Case Offers Ultimate Impact Protection While Letting Users Enjoy Their Phone's Original Design, and Premium Tempered Glass Screen Protector up to Ten Times Stronger Than Other Market Leading Screen Protectors

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 12, 2016) - tech21, the leader in impact protection for mobile devices and the fastest-growing major case brand in the U.S., today announced its thinnest and lightest case solution yet, the Impact Clear, as well as its premium tempered glass screen shield solution, the Evo Glass.

With more consideration going into the design of smartphones than ever before, tech21 set out to create an impact protection case and advanced screen protector that not only keep a device protected from everyday drops, but keeps a smartphone's beauty in mind.

Impact Clear: Protection that makes your phone look good naked.

The Impact Clear marks the first time that tech21's innovative technology comes in a completely clear case. Measuring 0.08 inches on the sides and 0.06 inches on the back, the ultra-thin Impact Clear is a scratch and smudge-resistant case with a matte finish that offers everyday drop protection up to five feet.

Using BulletShield™ technology, tech21 reduced the amount of material used in the case overall, making it ultra-thin, lightweight and completely clear. The Impact Clear offers a secure fit and feel, and comfortable, precise access to all ports and function buttons.

Many clear cases currently available can be difficult to install and remove, and may even scratch or damage a phone in the process. Designed for day-to-day wear and tear, and by using the flexible BulletShield™ material on the sides of the case, the Impact Clear is easy to install and remove, without scratching or damaging the phone in the process.

Evo Glass: Nothing's getting through this impact shield.

The ultra-thin and crystal clear Evo Glass combines premium tempered glass with high precision polishing and etching techniques to deliver the next evolution in screen protection. 

Up to ten times stronger than other market leading screen protectors, and less than 0.4mm thick, this advanced screen protector is completely flat and beautifully smooth, delivering unrivaled levels of impact protection using the same methods used to create optical lenses. These techniques minimize micro fractures and other imperfections found in standard glass protectors.

"When it comes to phone protection, materials matter, and the Impact Clear and Evo Elite are prefect examples of that," said Jason Roberts, CEO of tech21. "The Evo Glass takes screen protection to the next level, and as the thinnest and lightest case we've created yet, the Impact Clear is the perfect protective solution for people who want to highlight their phone's beautiful design."

tech21 products are designed to reflect a wide range of styles and preferences, yet they all come with one simple promise: advanced impact protection that is rigorously tested to work harmoniously with your device. Like the technology they are designed to protect, tech21's products use the latest science, ingenious design and unbeatable user-friendliness to make this possible. We call this 'Protection Made Intelligent.'

The Impact Clear is now available at Best Buy, Verizon, online at for Apple's iPhone 6/6s and iPhone 6/6s Plus, iPhone SE and Samsung Galaxy S7, retailing for $34.95 - $39.95 MSRP. Beginning April 18, Impact Clear will also be available at T-Mobile.

The Evo Glass is now available and being sold exclusively in participating T-Mobile stores, at Target, and online at for $44.95 MSRP.
