    Frequently Asked Questions about Exway Boards

    How much is an Exway Board?
    Exway boards come in three main available variants. The pricing depends on the drivetrain version as well as the model you choose to go for. Here are the approximate prices you can expect when considering buying an Exway board:

    Yes, the Exway X1 Riot is IP55 water-resistant to some degree. You can be worry-free when it comes to the motor and board’s exposure to water.

You can always replace parts and get a new belt motor in case you see your moving parts catching rust or not performing well.
