Finally, something from Lightweight that isn’t wheels and I still probably can’t afford.

I wonder if these will have any shock absorbing qualities. Otherwise I imagine and shock impact transferring directly to the phone via the thin carbon shell.

I always like me a “feelable” carbon fiber structure.
But to be classy, it must surely be a feelable carbon fibre structure. Fiber is so proletarian.

I hate that font they use. It’s so 90’s – probably the most fancy font they had on the pc at the time.

I wonder if you have a warrantee issue with this case, it will take over a year to replace. Like it takes, with their wheels.

For that kind of money I’m going with Element.

$225, I didn’t even pay that for my phone! The company does have a cool history to them before and leading up to their buy out by Carbon Sports. Basically wood molds, scrap carbon, a shed, and a dream.

I want a protective case made of a silicon bag about the size of a large grapefruit. The phone would nestle into. I may never set it down, just sit there a fondle it all day long.
That is a Billion dollar idea. You’re welcome.

owners manual in English? Ok – I’ll ask. Why does this thing need an owners manual?

The logo needs to be more prominent.

Can’t wait until next year when they “innovate” with a black logo and unidirectional crabon.

@ Rgeniec
You would be suprised what people would do without it 😉 But it is only a paper sheet not a real manual.
