Cycling Phone Case Buyers Guide

Aug 17th 2015 at 2:30 AM


If you look up cycling phone case online you’re going to find quite a handful being advertised, which goes to show the number of users who wear their iPhone while cycling is growing. But these cases are not created equal and some clips are superior to others. If you’re unable to decide what to buy here are some tips to help you out.

Grip and Shock Absorption

A clip case, or any other smartphone case for that matter, has the same purpose, and that is to protect the device and make it easy to carry. Given this fact, look for a case that has a durable clip, the kind that won’t snap off even with repeated use. Second, the case needs to have a solid grip surface and a powerful shock absorber.

The latter is especially important if you’re going to wear the fitness iPhone case as you’re running, cycling or working out. One of the problems with inferior cases is they break down quickly, even the bulkier ones. Without sufficient shock absorption, the case is next to useless. Even if you don’t drop the iPhone, the constant movement and juggling will take its toll unless the case can take the punishment.

Other Factors to Consider

You also need to look at the manner in which the case has been manufactured. Different methods are used of course, but the best ones are those made from a single unit: cases made from different parts tend to break down more easily, so a single body is preferable.

Some cases also have a back clip that fastens on the case when you’re not using it, and that’s a feature you might want to look into. Of course you can’t listen to your iPhone on the go without a headphone, so the case must have an opening that can accommodate most types of iPhone headphones.

For some users the simpler the case the better as they just want one for cycling, but if you’re among those who want full control over the whole thing, consider getting a clip case that has integrated button controls so it’s easier to control. If you’re concerned the glass, look for a case that rests in front of the device’s screen without being obtrusive.

One more thing needs to be mentioned: a good running iPhone case should also have a decent opening for the camera, because without it there will be distortions in the photo images.
