Fantom X: The perfect minimalist wallet for materialists

If I told you to close your eyes and think of a wallet, chances are you’ll still think of the traditional leather bifold. You’re probably somewhat old-school if you did (sort of like I am), although if you thought of a bitcoin hardware wallet, you’re probably living in the year 2050. The Fantom X wallet, however, was designed to be neither old school nor wildly futuristic and speculative. It’s what I call a contemporary representation of a wallet, using new-age materials and manufacturing methods. The Fantom X comes with a robust cerakote aluminum body, a carbon fiber exterior, and a drop-dread sleek design that doesn’t leave a bulge in your back pocket the way a chunky bifold does. For good measure, it also packs RFID-blocking capabilities, and comes with a lifetime warranty.

Designed and manufactured in Canada, the Fantom X is the third and the latest in Fantom’s minimalist wallet series. It comes in 3 sizes, holding anywhere from 7 to 13 cards depending on the size you pick, and is an overall of 3 millimeters (1/8th of an inch) thicker than all those cards stacked together, resulting in a wallet that’s MUCH slimmer than traditional bifolds or even cardholders. The Fantom X achieves this thanks to a precisely machined aluminum outer body, which securely holds your cards in inside its inner chamber.

To access your cards, a lever/trigger on the top lets you fan them out of their chamber, making each card individually visible and accessible so you’re never digging around for the right card every time. Call it a combination of good design and engineering, but your cards sit snugly in their spot without ever falling out even by accident. Whether you use your Fantom X to store 3 cards or 13, your cards stay firmly put in their chamber, only exiting the wallet when you pick them out.

A flick of the lever provides instant access to all of your cards. A quick-access thumb slot is also available to access your most used card without fanning.

The cards come out only when you need them. The perfect balance between security and ease of access lies in the magic of our patented design.

However, this modern takeover doesn’t necessarily mean compromising on style for sleekness. The Fantom X’s industrial charm is contrasted by the decorative cover plates that go on the front and back of the wallet. For people looking for something strikingly unique, wooden cover plates enhance your Fantom X’s quirky appeal. For people firmly rooted in the future, a carbon fiber plate lets you accentuate your Fantom X’s ‘looking ahead’ visual appeal. The plates add an aesthetic touch to your wallet, covering them from the front and back, while the wallet RFID-protects your cards too, against digital theft. However, to make tapping your card easy at payment terminals or the metro, or while you’re checking in and out of work, the Fantom X allows you to tap the lowermost card when your wallet is fully deployed using the lever on the side.

Tested to over half a million fanning cycles, the Fantom X’s patented fanning mechanism was engineered with absolute longevity in mind.

Each wallet is machined from a solid sheet of aluminum and finished with Cerakote for unmatched corrosion, chemical, and durability performance.

Fantom X on the far right.

The Fantom X is the third in Fantom’s wallet series, boasting of a design that’s 22% smaller and 35% lighter than its predecessors. While visibly thinner than almost every regular wallet out there, the Fantom X is designed to even outlast other wallets in terms of its durability. The wallet’s body comes machined from aluminum and finished with a damage-resistant Cerakote coating, while the lever mechanism is built to take loads up to 12 kilograms or 25 lbs without breaking a sweat. Each wallet’s even secured by a lifetime guarantee on its manufacturing quality, and moreover, Fantom even revealed that the Fantom X has a unique modular-compatible design, with modules to hold cash/keys and even track your wallet coming in the summer of 2022.
