We recently heard from a Metro Case user who is an avid cyclist. He routinely carries an iPhone 7 in his cycling jersey pocket.
On a rather steep descent on a recent ride, the phone popped out of the pocket, slammed into the ground and skidded along the pavement. GPS recorded 52 miles per hour...
Fearing the worst, the phone was retrieved. The Metro Case was badly bent, mangled and scratched, but the Poron® XRD shock absorbers performed exactly as designed! The screen glass was not cracked, and amazingly the iPhone 7 was otherwise completely unscathed.
Here are photos of the damaged gold Metro Case, alongside a new one.
