    The Kenu Blog — Highline

    Say Hello To HIGHLINE for iPhone 5/5s.

    Kenu is proud to announce our second generation HIGHLINE for the iPhone 5/5s! Highline is a clever security leash and protective case system that provides peace of mind while capturing photos and video in the most precarious situations. Whether you are on a chairlift, whale watching, zip–lining, rock climbing, or entertaining your child, Highline will be there to provide the ultimate protection for your iPhone. Highline also keeps your iPhone safe from accidental drops, absent mindedness, and even deters theft, all while protecting it from scuffs and scratches.

    Highline in Print around the world!

    Here's what our friends over at Onboard (in Germany) had to say, "Now the Kenu Highline is a really clever little safety gadget for your phone that will hopefully mean you never lose yours on the hill again. It consists of a compact coil cable that one one end attaches to your jacket while at the other locks securely into your phone's charging dock. No more retracing your steps around the park, keeping an ear out for the ringtone of a dropped phone. We are stoked on this!"

    And Slug Magazine...

    "Kenu’s Highline is a Kevlar safety leash that attaches securely to your iPhone (4s, 4, 3GS, 3) or iPod (touch, classic, nano) the same way your charger would. If you’re as vain as I am (and you are—I follow you on Instagram), this product is near genius. It’s one of those things you wish you’d thought of first. There are so many times that I’ve held my iPhone out in front of me to take a selfie, gripping the sides with all the muscles in my fingers, hoping it’s not going to drop to an expensive death. The Highline is also ideal for cycling. I know, I know, “What are you doing on your phone while riding a bike?!” At least I’m not driving a two-ton death machine while I pull out my phone (yeah, I’m looking at YOU). I actually lost my last phone when I stuck it in my back pocket and the to-and-fro motion of my ass wiggled it out while pedaling. With the Highline, I can attach it to my belt loop or even the strap on my Velo City Bag, and know my iPhone’s gonna make it home so I can #latergram all of my adventures. That’s really the only downside to the Highline—you have to have some kind of “loop” to tie it to, or there’s no way to use it, but unless you often find yourself in Velcro onesies, that shouldn’t be a major problem." –Esther Meroño 

    Highline in print in Vail-Beaver Creek Magazine!


    Check out what the writers of Vail Beaver Creak Magazine had to say about the Highline! Have you ever heard of the term "Girth-Hitches"? Well if you have, you're way smarter than us. Here's the definition: "A simple knot made with a runner or sling by wrapping it around a fixed object and looping it through itself". Great review and we learned something too!

    Vail Beaver Creak Magazine mention:

    THE 10TH DIVISION DIDN'T HAVE GORE-TEX. OR. Kevler. Nor did the cold warriors have iPhones. But if they had, they'd have asked their quartermasters to requisition Kenu's Highline ($19.95 at; available locally at Gorsuch), a Kevlar tether that docks with an iPhone and girth-hitches to a zipper or belt loop. With a touch of irony, that coiled bomb-proof leash resembles and old-school, analog phone cord. Now all we need is an app that turns that touch-tone finger pad into a rotary dial!

    Kenu in the lap of mountain luxury!

    We are now living the "High Life"! Kenu is proud to announce that Highline is available at Gorsuch, Colorado's premier all in one place for your high-end skiing/snowboarding needs. Much like Kenu, Gorsuch is inspired by "balancing the highest traditions of workmanship with demanding modern sensibilities." They are a true Colorado staple for locals and travelers alike, and will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year! Dip your toe into the lap of luxury and pick up a Highline at any of the 8 Gorsuch locations in Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, Aspen and Snowmass and keep your 30 pin iPhone/iPod safe this year while on the mountain!
