July 27, 2017
BF100 and BF200 Join Bullfrog Family of Bluetooth® Speakers Designed for Outdoor Enthusiasts
Stillwater, OK (July 27, 2017) – KICKER today announced the expansion of its adventure-ready Bullfrog series of portable Bluetooth speakers with the addition of the new BF100 and BF200. Designed for outdoor enthusiasts, the BF100 and BF200 join the legendary BF400 to complete the Bullfrog collection of durable, long-lasting, performance speakers made for any and every environment. The BF100 and BF200 speakers will debut at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market this month at booth #PV1242 and will be available to consumers in October 2017.
Kicker signature sound anywhere you go. From backcountry missions to backyard BBQ’s, the new BF100 (MSRP: $199.95) enhances every adventure, rain, snow or shine. At a lightweight 1.8 pounds, 12-hour battery life and with a compact trail-tested design, the BF100 can go anywhere you need, whether in a pack or carried up Everest. The BF100’s IP67 rating means that it is fully protected from dust and dirt, floats and can also withstand being submerged in 1m of water for up to 30 minutes. The BF100 also features 360° sound, a hands-free speakerphone and has a Bluetooth range of 100 feet.
Just toss it in the truck. Need a little more kick for your next pool party or car camping experience? Similar to the existing BF400, the 360° sound, IP66-rated BF200 (MSRP: $299.95) is one tough mudder that can withstand powerful splashes of water and windblown dust and dirt without forgoing Kicker’s legendary sound quality or range. Perfect for one-handed hauling to the beach, basecamp or big game, with up to a 20-hour battery life, the sturdy BF200 lets you stream Bluetooth audio all day from up to 100-feet from your phone, or connect directly to the speaker by AUX input or charging USB connection. The BF200 also comes equipped with an FM Tuner; and with the KICKER Connect app, up to six preset FM stations are at the touch of a button.
“The addition of the BF100 and BF200 to Bullfrog collection exemplifies our commitment and desire to design products that complement an active lifestyle while living up to the KICKER reputation as a leader in performance audio,” commented Jeremy Bale, Brand Manager for KICKER lifestyle products.
Both the BF100 and BF200 are compatible with any audio player, smartphone or tablet that is Bluetooth-enabled. All Bullfrog models are equipped with four speakers – two drivers and two passive radiators – for 360° sound. Each speaker has KICKER Double Kick functionality to wirelessly link to any other KICKER Bullfrog speaker. Each Bullfrog model also comes with an AUX input and USB charge out for charging mobile devices on the go.
“The KICKER Bullfrog family offers a full line of speakers for all of life’s best moments”, adds Bale. “Thanks to features like the FM tuner and Double Kick, we’re excited to bring our unending focus on audio performance and durable reliability to wherever our customers may go, from the great outdoors to tailgating at the big game.”
