Exway Flex is a product of EXWAY. EXWAY, headquartered in China’s Silicone Valley, Shenzhen, was founded by two X-sports enthusiasts in 2016. EXWAY is dedicated to developing and manufacturing vehicles, mainly electric skateboards.
EXWAY electric skateboards are in the high end of the market, while remaining extremely affordable.
The EXWAY team wants to offer high performance, innovative, reliable, robust and “smooth ride” e-skates while sparing the pockets of its customers and without shying away from offering a quality after-sales service, we strongly appreciate the courage of the approach.
EXWAY Flex, Smart and Powerful Electric Skateboard
The EXWAY Flex is equipped with two brushless motors capable of developing a combined maximum power of :
3000W for the Riot version (motors with belts).
2400W for the Hub version (Hubs Direct Drive motors – In the wheels).
The Flex reaches 40 km/h, a very high speed only attainable in satisfactory safety conditions by the models of the biggest brands of e-skates (Boosted, Exway, Dot…).
As for autonomy, the Exway Flex is at the rendezvous; about thirty kilometers on a single charge for barely 7.5 kg of machine.
We can only recognize the extreme technicality of EXWAY on this point (competing e-skates with equivalent autonomies weigh more).
Note that the battery can be replaced very easily on the EXWAY Flex, which should interest hikers and other skateboarders.
Super Flex Deck
We could criticize the old generations (Exway X1, X1 PRO…) for their rigid boards offering little flexibility and cushioning to the rider.
The EXWAY Flex comes to seek its competitor Boosted on its field of predilection with an ultra flexible deck (board) in bamboo and fiberglass. Advantages:
- Greater riding flexibility.
- Improved riding feel.
- Much better cushioning.
- It is close to the deck of a classic long board (not electric) of very good quality.
The Devil Hides in the Details
The wheels of the EXWAY Flex are very well made, grip the ground well and absorb some of the shocks induced by the deformations of the road. In summary, the Flex wheels are :
- Flexible wheels at 76A.
- A diameter of 85 mm.
- Parabolic cutouts to give you more stability at high speed.
- 90% urethane with ultra-fast rebound for an excellent balance between softness/cushioning and durability.
A High Tech Electric Skateboard
The EXWAY Flex has a modern and intuitive mobile app (iOS & Android) whose main features are:
- Choice of driving mode.
- Activation/deactivation of the Turbo function (maximum power).
- Setting the wheel size to calibrate the odometer in case of custom.
- Firmware updates.
- View data and navigation history.
The remote control of the Exway Flex allows you to turn on/off the electric skateboard as well as to activate the hibernation mode (putting the board to sleep).
A durable and well-made electric skateboard
The EXWAY Flex is IP55 certified and should resist to most of the rain and other water projections, which is not a constant in the world of electric skateboards.
The Flex’s battery is managed by a smart BMS and composed of SONY VCT6 cells of very high capacity (18650 cells – rather premium cells…).
In case of long storage, the BMS of the battery protects it from deep discharge with a hibernation.
Without going into too many technical details, the EXWAY Flex “Truck” is extremely solid and seems to us hardly prone to breakage.
Moreover, the Flex has been designed in a modular way and maintenance is simple.
The replacement of parts of this e-skate is really within the reach of everyone… The TECOWHEEL team will try to provide you with a maximum of spare parts.
