Reebok Spartan World Championships Gets Rugged And Announces Xplore Technologies’ RangerX As The Official Tablet

Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), manufacturer of the world’s most powerful, longest-lasting and rugged tablets on the market, and Spartan Race, Inc., the world’s premier obstacle racing company, have announced that the Xplore RangerX will be the official tablet of the 2013 Reebok Spartan Race World Championships taking place in Killington, Vermont on Sept. 21 and 22.

Technology is a key component for reportedly the world’s fastest growing sport. Spartan athletes will be able to quickly check their results in real-time on the rugged Android tablets at the event, improving the race experience. In addition, the RangerX will be used on the course to assist the race staff with production and logistics.

“We needed a device that is as tough as our Spartan racers and can stand up to whatever extreme conditions we throw at it,” said Joe De Sena, founder of the Spartan Race. “We’ve got all-terrain athletes; now we have an all-terrain tablet for our extreme technology needs.”

Extreme and professional athletes from around the world will be participating in the popular obstacle race known for punishing hills, challenging wall climbs, aerial traverses over water, rope climbs and barbed wire crawls. In addition to $250,000 in cash prizes for the top finishers, the top male and female winners will be awarded a Special Edition Spartan Race RangerX tablet.

“Partnering with Spartan is a great opportunity to provide the rugged technology this emerging sport needs to improve the experience for its thousands of competitors and spectators,” said Mark Holleran, president and chief operating officer of Xplore Technologies. “The Reebok Spartan World Championships is the ultimate chance for athletes to discover technology that can be as tough as they are. We’re looking forward to seeing where Spartans push the limits with the RangerX.”

From the manufacturer of the most rugged tablets on the market, Xplore’s RangerX is a lightweight 10.2 inch tablet that is ideal for use in extreme environments. Designed to withstand the demands of the military but with a contemporary look and feel not found in traditional rugged devices, the RangerX is the perfect companion for the extreme athlete or outdoor enthusiast.
