The AER Karbon is all about military-grade drop protection, packaged in an ultra-slim design. The AER is made from two core materials, aramid fiber (keep reading to learn why we use aramid composite material over carbon fiber composite material) and TPU. In addition, the case has built in magnets that work with the included AFIX vent mount/desk stand.

What is Aramid Fiber / Kevlar and Why Use It Over Carbon Fiber?
Most of us have heard of Kevlar, the bulletproof composite material in the same family as carbon fiber. Did you know that Kevlar is just a brand name for a material called aramid fiber?
Aramid fiber is an advanced composite material in the same family of carbon fiber. It's 5 times stronger than steel, known for being lightweight and strong and are also commonly used in aerospace, racing and advanced military applications (including ballistic-rated body armor).
One key difference between carbon and aramid fiber is it's conductivity. This can potentially be a problem for a phone case because it can interfere with your signal reception...that's why full carbon fiber phone cases generally have special cutouts or use other materials to help mitigate interference. Aramid, on the other hand, is non-conductive and therefore cannot interfere with the signal, but since the aramid fibers are dyed black, it looks identical to a carbon fiber case.
