About this project
The mRide iPhone 4/4S case
We have come to the Kickstarter community to raise funds for the expensive injection molding tooling and the first production run of the mRide iPhone 4 case. The mRide case will be made through a single shot injection molding process and will be manufactured from polycarbonate plastic which is extremely strong and durable.
After our funding goal is met we will be ready to move forward with this project. We have completed all of the design work, testing, and material selection. We have local suppliers and are going to make sure all production is kept in the USA. Our suppliers are waiting to make the injection molding tooling as soon as we have the funds. We are in the process of developing additional accessories to integrate with this mounting system. These will be available on our website after we reach our funding goal.
Below are some more pictures of what the mRide case will look like:

We have already designed a form-fitting, transparent, silicone splash cover which will encapsulate your iPhone. This will be offered on our website after our project is funded.
We will also have a powder coated desk stand and stainless steel flush wall mount available for sale on our website.
The mRide will currently be offered in either Black or White. If we exceed our funding goal by a sufficient margin we will be able to offer more color choices; tell us what colors you want to see!
We may even make a chrome-plated model.
Pending successful funding our website will go live! www.maraudermfg.com

No, the mRide works only with the iPhone 4/4S series phone.
The case and bracket with phone weighs about 6.5oz [184 grams].
It is both. The case can be used for everyday use or specifically for mounting.
The mRide case is designed to fit with Cateye's SP-11 mounting bracket. It might fit with other brackets; we only suggest that you use the SP-11 mounting bracket.
No, due to the simplicity in design the mRide is designed to fit precisely only with the iPhone 4.
Polycarbonate is a very light and nearly indestructible plastic. It is used in a wide variety of applications including bulletproof windows. It has great dimensional stability in addition to its high impact strength. The prototypes shown in our video taking abuse were 3d printed using polycarbonate.
We have hung 10lbs of static weight from the iPhone when installed on a bike, this is estimated to be equivalent to a g loading of about 26g’s.
