Speck Unveils Presidio Ultra: Rugged, Durable Case With All-Around Protection

The complete line-up includes improvements to Presidio CLEAR and Presidio GRIP, and a brand new metallic collection

SAN MATEO, California, Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Speck released its iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus line-up, which includes its most rugged and protective case yet, Presidio ULTRA. Speck is also releasing improved versions of Presidio GRIP and the No. 1 best-selling clear case* Presidio CLEAR, and a brand new metallic collection. The entire line of cases for the new iPhones features fresh fall colours and new patterns.

Presidio ULTRA is Speck's toughest case yet, designed to withstand extreme drops and resist the elements. Presidio ULTRA is drop tested up to 4.5 metres, features four layers of protection, offers 360-degree port coverage and is dirt and dust resistant.

Presidio ULTRA is designed to be flexible for those who never have the same day twice, whether that's a working parent on the go, or the weekend warrior who clocks out from their 9 to 5 and then heads straight into adventure. Presidio ULTRA starts with a dual-layer, one-piece Presidio case, which provides slim 3 metre drop protection that's perfect for daily use. By adding the IMPACTIUM ULTRA Bumper, the case becomes ultra-protective, ready to efend against drops, dirt, dust and whatever else might come its way.

"We wanted to make an ultra-protective case in a way that felt authentic to Speck," said Speck VP of Design Bryan Hynecek. "Presidio ULTRA is unique in that its convertible to give customers options of rugged protection when they need it, and slim protection when they don't."

Speck has also made improvements to two of its most popular cases, Presidio CLEAR and Presidio GRIP. By employing a sophisticated microdot technology, the No. 1 best-selling clear case in the U.S., Presidio CLEAR, is now even more clear and continues to resist UV yellowing and scratches. The ridges on Presidio GRIP have been redesigned with an improved grip geometry, resulting in a more tactile hold.

Speck is also introducing a metallic collection for the first time. Presidio METALLIC provides 3 metre drop protection and comes in five of this season's top colours: rose gold, gold, tungsten grey, taro purple and peppermint green. The assortment features chic jewel tones with a scratch-resistant finish, the perfect accessory to complement the newest iPhones.

  • Presidio ULTRA (£44.95) -- Rugged, slim case with 4.5 metre drop protection and 360-degree port coverage
