Mounts to ANY Bike

The Turtle Shell was announced at CES in January 2012 with prototypes and got rave reviews from BIG names. It has a number of patents pending including the FIRST EVER camera threading on a speaker allowing it to attach to ANY standard camera accessory. This is a super important feature of the Shell, it means unlike every other portable speaker, it is truly built for on the go action. You can mount it to your bike, your baby stroller, or a tree branch when camping.

We have been working on the Turtle Shell for 14 months and are now finished! We have inventory about to ship and retail orders exceeding our expectations so that's where you come in, we need the Kickstarter community's help! We are offering awesome Kickstarter exclusive rewards in exchange for your pledge! KS Cost + Small Wait + Awesome Turtle Speaker = BIG WIN.
