We knew The Joy Factory's new aXtion Bold for iPad Air ($60) looked familiar when it arrived in our office, and upon closer inspection it became clear. Whether it's manufactured by the folks behind Hard Candy Cases' ShockDrop and Gumdrop Cases' Drop Tech Series, or simply produced in the same factory, the plastic and rubber case uses the exact same inner frame, with a slightly different outer rubber skin. Instead of tire treads, this one has a slight texture, with a large, raised, smooth X across it.

Because of the similarities, we’ll keep this review extremely brief; if you want more details, take a look at the prior ShockDrop review. aXtion Bold earns a general recommendation, slightly lower than ShockDrop because of the $10 higher price.



Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
