NEW YORK, March 24, 2015 /CNW/ - HITCASE– The patented waterproof video case and mounting system that turns an iPhone into an action camera is taking its tag line "Ready for Adventure™" to a whole new level.
The unstoppable Vancouver-based company has curated a powerful line up of the world's most celebrated Mountain Bike (MTB) riders, all of whom are competing at CRANKWORX New Zealand, the first major MTB event of the season.
Leading the team is two-time Free Mountain Bike (FMB) World Champion Brandon Semenuk. "Semenuk is one of the industry's most progressive riders," says HITCASE CEO Brooks Bergreen. "Brandon is a force to be reckoned with. His creative vision, leadership and love for the sport are exactly what HITCASE is all about." Brandon will be looking to defend his 2014 FMB overall title as he kicks of with the first stop of the tour later this month in New Zealand.
"I'm Excited to be working with HITCASE in 2015," says Brandon. "Capturing my professional and personal experiences is important to me. HITCASE enhances every moment I point my iPhone at."
In addition to Semenuk, Devinci Global Racing joins the HITCASE roster led by 2013 World Cup Overall Winner Stevie Smith. Smith, a Canadian superstar, along with teammates Mark Wallace and Dean Lucas look to dominate World Cup gravity podiums, using HITCASE to document their circuit tour. On the Enduro side, Damien Oton leads the Devinci/Alltricks enduro team after a stand-out rookie season on the Enduro World Series, where he took his first EWS Victory in La Thuille, Italy. Oton and teammate Theo Galy have also joined forces with HITCASE, kicking off their 2015 EWS season in Rotorua. Additionally, HITCASE brand veteran and Pro rider Andrew Taylor rounds out an impressive roster for 2015.
Cody Swansborough, HITCASE Athlete & Brand Marketing Manager says, "This is a huge win for HITCASE. We've built a team of the most amazing and passionate riders we could find who demonstrate excellence both in their sport and as human beings. We are excited to help make it easier for them to share and inspire both their fans and the world with their daily adventures."
