Smartly oriented toward the outdoor market needs, the Reeloq Pro is a new smartphone security solution designed for outdoor enthusiasts. Gone are the days when smartphones simply slipped out of your hands.

Smart idea, big effect

The Reeloq Pro is a revolutionary smartphone securing device that offers a simple yet effective way to keep your phone accessible when you need it - and securely attached to your backpack when you don't. The force of the retractable Dyneema-cord can be easily locked by the patented locking mechanism. The initial version is already patented in Europe and America. This innovation ensures your smartphone is always safely and within reach, whether you want to capture those breathtaking moments or have it ready at hand in case of an emergency.

The Reeloq Pro offers an innovative solution to a common problem: how to use your smartphone securely in the mountains. With this product, customers no longer need to worry about constantly rummaging through their backpacks or jackets to find their phones. Your smartphone will always be ready for the next snapshot, allowing you to take pictures freely and safely. Reeloq has taken great care in selecting the materials used in the Reeloq Pro, considering both durability and lightness. Whether you're hiking, conquering via ferrata routes, or paragliding, this device is designed to withstand the demands of various outdoor activities.

Thanks to the patented locking mechanism and the Dyneema cord, the smartphone can be used safely outdoors.

Market niche recognized

Since the two founders of Reeloq, Lukas and Julia, visited ISPO years ago with their first prototype in hand, they have dreamt of winning this award themselves. Three years ago they launched the first Reeloq smartphone securing system and with their new product Reeloq Pro they have now incorporated all the customer feedback of the last years: a new locking mechanism, a minimalistic design and lightweight materials.

The two are now even happier that they were able to win an ISPO Award with their new product: "This award validates the countless hours our team has put into researching, designing, and testing our Reeloq Pro Smartphone Securing, ensuring it meets the highest standards of functionality, innovation, and durability. Additionally, the award motivates us to further pursue our mission: to inspire and equip adventurers to capture their unforgettable memories in nature."

The smart idea behind the product was quickly apparent to the jury. Of course, there are phone cases and individual securing solutions with loops on the market. But none have been truly optimal so far. How often have you found yourself in a situation where your smartphone almost or actually slipped out of your hands in the mountains, or you didn't even take it out of your backpack for fear of dropping it? Many of us probably know this dilemma. Thanks to Reeloq Pro, we now have one less thing to worry about on our outdoor adventures.

Reeloq Pro can be attached to any backpack strap. The phone pouch provides additional protection for the smartphone.

With the combination of an innovative anti-drop-device with a retractable cord and a smartphone pouch, a real market niche has now been identified and filled. In summary, the Reeloq Pro by Reeloq is an innovative smartphone anti-drop system designed for securing smartphones on hiking backpacks. It provides a secure and convenient way for adventurers to keep their smartphones accessible while exploring the great outdoors. With its patent-pending locking mechanism and high-quality materials, this product is a must-have for anyone who wants to enjoy their outdoor activities without worrying about their smartphone's safety.

With the Reeloq Pro, every outdoor adventure can be captured safely with your smartphone.
