        Materially Different: Introducing Our New ShockSpread™ Material September 13, 2017, 0 Comments

        Our new ShockSpread™ material is now available for S9, S9+, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XLNote 8, S8, S8+, OnePlus 5, Honor 9 and iPhone X CrashGuard Bumpers, as well as SolidSuit Case and RhinoShield Mod™.

        -

        Evolution is in our DNA, and our evolution goes beyond impact protection. It's about how we design smartly to add the minimum to your device, so you can get the maximum out of it. That's why we think out of the box, and have created the next generation of ShockSpread™ material which is not just incredibly protective as usual, but also smarter in pretty much every way.

        So how smart is it, and how does it help you get the maximum from your device?


        It's super tough yet flexible.

                 

        Many protective cases consist of two separate materials to achieve protection - a harder exterior shell to disperse impact, and a softer interior to absorb shock. Our new material exhibits both hard and soft properties, which means it can resist and cushion impact alone. Compared with polycarbonate and thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), two materials often used in protective cases, the tensile strength of our new material is significantly greater. This makes our cases extremely durable, and allows for a snug fit without loosening over time. As the material is incredibly difficult to break even at traditional weak points, we were able to create roomy port openings that are large enough to fit third party accessories. And unlike many tough materials that are stiff, our new material is surprisingly flexible. Its elasticity allows the case to spring back to place after flexing, without permanent loosening.

        You can now bend and twist the case without worrying about it breaking or loosening, install and remove it easily without worrying about it scratching your phone, and access your ports and third party accessories comfortably.



        It's thinner yet just as protective.

              

        Unlike conventional practices which simply add more materials to achieve additional protection, we go for the minimalist way. As mentioned, we combined the protective properties we wanted into a single material. This has allowed us to reduce overall volume by 40% and thickness by 22% while retaining the same 11.5 feet impact resistance* of our previous cases. As we don't have to fuse separate materials to make the case, the case can also be recycled easily.

        Your phone can now shine as originally intended and stay protected with our super thin and light cases, without adding any unnecessary bulk.

        *Our cases provide incredible impact protection far exceeding the US military drop test standard (MIL-STD 810G), which can absorb at least 11.5 feet (3.5 meters) of impact. And while you should not try this at home, braver souls have even done successful extreme drop tests - including a 100-foot free fall from a drone.


        It's spotless.

        Our protective coating is able to resist many water-based and oil-based stains. Based on everyday use, the case rarely picks up scuff marks, even when it is repeatedly taken out of one's pocket. Ink, dirt and food stains can be cleaned without leaving any residue.

        You don't have to shy away from light-colored cases any more. Our special stain resistant coating means your white case stays white.

         


        *How to clean the case?

        For bumpers (including the frame of the Mod case) - we have tested marker ink, ketchup, watercolors and soil on the bumpers. They can be removed with a light alcohol-based cleaner, not too long after staining occurs. However, avoid using alcohol-based solvents too often, as over time they may degrade the coating.

        For the BackPlate of the Mod case - Please do not clean it with alcohol based solvents, as it will be damaged. We advise using water to clean it.


        It's free of harmful chemicals.

           

        Unlike BPA (Bisphenol A) containing hard plastics which can be found in the majority of name-brand phone cases, our new material is 100% BPA / BPS / BPF free. BPA has been linked to reproductive and developmental toxicity. Tested against FDA (Food and Drug Administration) requirements, our new material is also certified food-grade, even safe for child use. With your health and safety in mind, we worked hard to avoid these harmful chemicals, and believe we have formulated one of the safest impact-resistant materials around.

        You now have one less thing to worry about.

        It's simply the best of both worlds. 

        Our ShockSpread™ material is an industry-changing materials science breakthrough. It's super tough and flexible at the same time. We were able to combine the protective properties we wanted into a single material, leaving us to push the envelope in minimal design. Not to mention it's completely BPA free, 100% recyclable and stain resistant.

            New Generation Bumper Case: RhinoShield CrashGuard 2.0 August 31, 2016, 2 Comments

            September is always a bit special for Apple Fans, but this year around, it is even more exciting for us. We want to announce the release of our new RhinoShield CrashGuard 2.0 Bumper for iPhone 6/6s, and iPhone 6s Plus! (and later for iPhone 7 once announced!)

             

             

            Since introducing CrashGuard in our 2014 KickStarter Project, RhinoShield has provided the best protection for your iPhones from any accidental bump or damage while enhancing the design of your mobiles. With Evolutive Labs’ pursue for excellence, we are constantly challenging ourselves and reinventing our material science to give you the best product on the market. So what is new with this CrashGuard 2.0?


            RhinoShield CrashGuard compatible to Screen Protector


            Compatibility with all Screen Protectors: For the owners of full edge to edge screen protectors on their iPhones, the biggest pain is to find a case that is compatible to this extra layer of glass. We created a bezel that not only adds more screen protection, but also lays on top of your protector without feeling too snug or interfere with its function.

             

            RhinoShield Ring/Silent Toggle Switch

             

            Ring/Silent Toggle Switch: The general impression of a protective case is sealing your phone in something that is bulky and sometimes the construction of the case will render your Ring/Silent switch on the side useless or prevents it from functioning properly. With the toggle opening enlarged, even your thumb can access the mute switch with ease.

            Charging Port Opening: Another common struggle when it comes to purchasing a case is the fitting of charging cables. The new CrashGuard 2.0 can now fit even the larger third party accessories. The precise cut-outs on the case ensure great drop protection on the bottom but is compatible with most third-party cables (see image).

            Overall Handling: RhinoShield takes pride in creating a protective case that covers as little body as possible while providing maximum drop protection. The new curve design on the CrashGuard hugs the aluminum edge of your iPhone without adding bulk. The bezel on both front and back of the bumper not only provides extra protection, it also levitates the phone from touching any surface. The matte finish enhances better grip.

            The RhinoShield CrashGuard 2.0 is set to hit the shelves on September 12! If you want to get notified of the actual release, be sure to provide us with your email down below:

            See What Happens When A Real Customer Drop Test RhinoShield CrashGuard March 31, 2016, 0 Comments

            RhinoShield Crashguard is famous for its 11 feet drop protection. All the protection, none of the bulk. We are confident in our products and are supported by many loyal fans including sites such as HuffingtonPost, FoxNewsBusiness, YahooTech, MobileReviewsEh, and many more but have you ever wondered what would happen if we pushed our cases to the limit? Well one of our customer did, and takes it to the extreme with his own phone.

            This brave young man personally submitted a request to us saying he owned a spare iPhone 5 and wanted to show his customers at work that cases don't have to be as bulky as an OtterBox just to protect their phones. Feel free to scroll to the bottom of the page to watch his video.

            It was around Halloween 2015, when he had a brilliant idea of spooking customers by dropping his phone in front of them. Believe it or not, some people's greatest fear is phone falling.  Alright, we will admit; we are one of them, thus is the reason why we work hard day and night to perfect Rhinoshield!

            After a day of scaring unknowing bypassers, he also wanted to test the limits of our RhinoShield so he chose to drop it from the second floor of a mall.  We admire the bravery, even after watching this video many times, our hands still get clammy every time. 

            Now, come and watch what happens when our bumpers are faced with the biggest challenge ever, as he drops the phone from two stories height!  Please do not try this at home :)  Viewer discretion advised.  

            We enjoyed the video, did you?  

            The Crashguard this young man used in the video is a iPhone 5 White bumper. This video was given to us with his permission so if you would like to submit your real life experience of RhinoShield to us as well, please write to us at info@evolutivelabs.com

            We also recently launched a full back case that is open to customization, with all the same level of protection as our bumpers. Check out the new line of cases from us: The RhinoShield Playproof: http://www.evolutivelabs.com/pages/playproof

            Our creative in house designers come up with brand new design concepts each week and by utilizing state-of-the-art 2.5D printing, they are able to add texture and feel to the print, bringing in new possibilities for case composition. 

            PS: Please do the drop test at your own risk.  We will not take responsibility for broken phones.

             Rhino Shield Crash Guard support the following device:

            CrashGuard vs. PlayProof: Which is better? January 03, 2016, 0 Comments

            Since Playproof was released, we have received this question so many times. Hopefully you will find the answer here!

            "Bumper or case? Which one is the right one for me?" 

            We can tell you honestly, it's like choosing between two awesome pizzas; how can we choose?

            For some iPhone lovers, the sleek design of the phone and the slenderness is what they love the most about their mobile; it is a almost a crime to cover its original design. Covering up the phone is almost comparable to wearing a sweater to the beach, yet failing to give the device a protective casing leaves us feeling uneasy about accidental drops and scratches.  

            Having a bumper compromises to both;  bumper cases are a great way to keep your iPhone as slim as the designers has intent it to be while keeping it protected from the bumps and knocks.  In fact, our RhinoShield CrashGuard will protect your iPhone from 11 feet drop that most tough cases can’t compare.  CrashGuard is lightweight, ultra thin, exceptionally tough and is perfect to show off your iPhone’s beautiful back especially if you have the color Gold or Rose Gold as your iPhone.  

            For others, a full back casing is more of their style.  RhinoShield PlayProof allows you to be able to enjoy the same 11 feet impact protection as CrashGuard with its slimness and maintain the minimal look.  The bumper only fits around the edge of the phone so you can switch between bumpers easily, with a PlayProof, you can change into different designs whether it's for an occasion or just to match your outfit.  Something to also keep in mind is that, a full case covers the entire phone besides the screen so it is a better choice if you are in a heavy duty environment.

            So which one is better you ask?  We made a comparison below, and let you be the judge of that.

            As you can tell from the picture, CrashGuard has slightly bigger buttons, but PlayProof has better tactile feedback (sticks out a little more.)  The size are very close, both under 2mm, but with the case being more oval around the edges.

            The cutout ports are also very close when it comes to size, but PlayProof is slightly larger at the charging port.  Many Rhino fans ask us, what about the headphone hole?  Both can fit third party chargers with ease, but PlayProof is slightly more curved in (very tiny difference).

            So can you choose between these two awesome products?  Neither can we. Tell us which one is your favorite!  We love to hear from our Rhino Fans!
