The RADIUS is not a bumper case, nor it is a snap case, it is not your conventional iPhone 5 case. The profile of the case is so slim, it barely extends beyond the sleep and the volume buttons on the sides of the iPhone 5. It’s very light, thin and, unlike many aluminum bumpers and cases, experienced no signal loss during testing. mod-3 gave a few prototypes to their teammates to use and they have had a hard time gathering those back for the video shoot because they love it so much, they call it their iPhone bikini…

The parts are carved out of solid billets of aircraft grade aluminum and weighing only 0.155 ounce (4.4 grams), while a typical aluminum bumper or case weighs 20 to 50 grams. The inside of the corners are lined with non-slip lining materials, providing grip and vibration absorption. The screws are in stainless steel and extra screws will be provided. Allen wrench included with every case.

The X frame is designed to connect the corner modules as directly as possible and bring the connecting spokes away from the edge of the iPhone 5’s bezel. The X frame interlocks with the corner modules and secured by 4 screws. The screws are in stainless steel and are custom made due to the thinness of the back of the case.The RADIUS is designed, engineered and prototyped in San Jose, California. In addition their team has pledged that the RADIUS by Mod-3 will be manufactured entirely in the USA.
