Durable, Waterproof Case and Universal Bike Mounts Empower Cycling Enthusiasts to Hit the Open Road

IRVINE, Calif. – The Joy Factory, Inc. unveiled today its enhanced line of StormCruiser StormCruiser
IPX4-rated water-resistant protective cases and mounting systems for
bicycles, motorcycles, and ATVs. Compatible with the iPhone 5™/5s™, 5c™
and the Galaxy S3, the StormCruiser is designed to attach to standard
handlebars and also affixes to golf carts, sports umbrellas supporting a
diameter of 1 1/8 inches or less. In addition, the company also
launched the new aXtion Go Bike Kit, offering iPhone 5 users the aXtion Go IPX5-rated waterproof case bundled with a universal bike mount.

Grams thoughts => This is one of the few true iPhone 5S and 5C bike systems out there currently, and I’ll be interested in putting it through its paces. Looks like the clamp system has been improved so that its not semipermanent. 

StormCruiser
case/mount for the iPhone 5/5s and 5c“Today’s die-hard and recreational
cycling enthusiasts can leverage their smartphone on any excursion,”
said Miranda Su, executive president of The Joy Factory and consumer
electronics veteran. “The scratch and weather-resistant case works
simultaneously with the mount which allows users to access the GPS,
phone and music features while navigating tough mountain bike trails or
riding to work through city streets.”

The StormCruiser features an
improved mounting technology that offers hassle-free installation and
removal. The smartphone fits snugly into a clamshell case that fastens
tightly with two clasps on either side and conveniently releases with
the touch of a button. The StormCruiser provides full access to the
smartphone’s buttons and full usage of the touch screen. In addition,
the case offers water-resistant sealable earphone and charging ports to
offer greater protection against the elements while cycling. When
needed, the sealable ports easily open to provide access for charging or
earphone use.

The
aXtion Go case is waterproof-rated IPX5, which protects the iPhone 5
from the most destructive natural elements and human mishaps. Users have
greater options to position the case horizontally or vertically on the
frame of a bicycle for hands-free access to number of options such as
GPS maps, MP3 players or speakerphone. When not in use, the aXtion Go
case is designed to easily detach from the mount and serve as a
stand-alone case, leaving the iPhone 5 protected.

The StormCruiser for the iPhone 5/5s/5c and for the Galaxy S3 is currently available for pre-orders at www.thejoyfactory.com and offered at an MSRP of $49.95. The aXtion Go Bike Kit for the iPhone 5 is offered at an MSRP of $64.95.
