G-Form's cases make your iPhone hockey puck tough
G-Form’s extreme protection cases have already deserved our attention - a G-Form-clad iPad literally fell from space and survived the fall, and that’s just enough testing for us. But what about the iPhone? G-Form’s got you covered there as well with a case that will survive the role of a hockey puck.
Now, what does that mean? How about getting hit with a slapshot sending your iPhone 4/4S flying with a speed of 82mph? There are two cases that offer this kind of protection and both come with G-Form’s own Poron XRD substance that will soften up hits.
There are two cases that use the technology: X Protect and Extreme Grid. Both of them cost $40, which is a bit more than a hockey puck. But then again, a hockey puck doesn’t ring and access the Internet, does it?

iPhone Survives 82 mph Slapshot Protected by G-Form's New "X Protect" Case
PROVIDENCE, RI (February 8, 2012) – G-Form, a company world famous for it's protective athletic and electronics gear, and for its recent demonstration protecting an iPad from a 100,000 foot free-fall from the stratosphere, has announced availability of its first protective cases for iPhone® 4/4S. In typical G-Form fashion, the company released a demonstration video of its new iPhone® case taking some extreme punishment, this time using a G-Form protected iPhone® as a puck in a hockey rink, where it takes on the dramatic forces of a full out slapshot.
"Our energy absorbing technology doesn't rely on thickness like typical foams or hard plastics, so we are able to design both athletic and electronic protective gear that offers unbelievable protection from impact, but without the bulk of any traditional technology," said Thom Cafaro VP Innovations. "The new G-Form iPhone 4 case is a perfect example of this, with its sleek design and unsurpassed impact protection."
The cases for iPhone 4, like all of G-Form's electronic protective gear are fully designed and manufactured in the United States of America, and are protected by RPT™ material - a revolutionary composite, blending Poron® XRD™ material with other proprietary G-Form materials and technology
G-Form's iPhone cases are being released in two designs, the "X Protect" and "Extreme Grid", and each design is available in both black and yellow. The complete selections of styles and colors can be found at www.g-form.com for $39.95. The cases are available now for pre-order and deliver end of February 2012.
