Case Improvements

Easy Setup – The Polycarbonate Shell and Flexible TPU front frame have been redesigned to fine tune the device ingress and egress process. Users will discover setup to be much quicker and easier as the device is both installed and removed more easily.

Why? – PIVOT took feedback from the initial PRO 97 deployment and applied it to the design of the new products in order to improve the user experience.

Reinforced Structure

Structural Ribs – A lattice of newly added ribs on the back surface of the PIVOT Mounting Channel improve rigidity to further reduce case-flex and vibration potential.

Why? – The PIVOT engineers identified an opportunity for continued improvement and took action to enhance the in-cockpit performance.

New Magnet Cover Design

Magnet Cover – A new, extremely robust snap-in cover has been designed to prevent damage from misuse of the folio cover. Now, if a user bends the folio cover backwards, the force will drive the cover into the kickstand, eliminating the potential for damaging the magnet cover.

Why? – Previously, misuse of the Folio Cover could result in the Magnet Cover being damage or detached.

New Magnet Cover Design

Magnet Cover – The revised design of the Magnet Cover reverses the direction of the magnet installation and captures them securely within a polycarbonate housing.

New Magnet Cover Design

Magnet Cover – Each magnet is contained within it’s own tray for precision alignment with the Folio Cover magnets. Additionally the magnets are held in place with a sturdy adhesive to prevent any movement within the Magnet Cover enclosure.

Improved Kickstand Design

Stronger Kickstand – 50% Thicker for improved strength. Formally vulnerable areas have been identified and redesigned. PC + TPU Over-mold bonding increased by 250% surface area for superior connection, to eliminate delamination potential.

Why? – A small percentage of PIVOT PRO 97 users reported damage to this area of the Folio Cover. The PIVOT designers took the opportunity to make a variety of improvements after reviewing user feedback.​

Anti-Bounce Crease

Anti-Bounce – This special crease in the TPU, at the base of the kickstand folds neatly to reduce the Folio Cover’s tendency to arch and bounce slightly when the user is typing vigorously.

Why? – Conversations with PIVOT users and online feedback made it clear that this was a highly desired upgrade to the previous Folio Cover.

Smart Connector Compatible

Keyboard Compatible – Intelligently designed case is compatible with device manufacturer’s accessories such as the magnetic keyboard.

Continuous Protection

Air-Cushion Protection – Each corner of the device is protected by a pocket of empty space. These cushions of air allow the PIVOT case body to flex and dissipate the forces of impact through the case structure, rather than transferring the shock directly to the device.
