Since the launch of X1 Pro on March 2019, Exway has been teasing about the belt-drive module that allows X1 Pro owner to convert their board from hub-drive to belt. Finally, on 15th June 2019, the model is officially available for pre-order in Exway store. Orders are set to be delivered on 26th June 2019.
It’s good to see Exway getting back on track after the infamous firmware issue that causes the board to lock-up when the battery hit near zero. Exway handled that snafu pretty well, showing their ability to do good customer service. But I digress, now, about the Riot module.
For those who are looking to buy the drive train module, it will set you back $399.
For those who haven’t own an X1 Pro, the Exway X1 Pro Riot model is now on sale at $1099. Alternatively, new buyers can get the Exway X1 Pro with both belt and hub drive train for $1399.
Below are the final specs of the Riot module:
Torque: 5.2 Nm*2;
Max Power: 1500W*2
Reduction Gear Ratio: 2.57
Belt: Continental Branded (Germany)
Motor: 5255-160kV but with 4235 stator that brings stronger torque;
Want to know how it performs? Sophia from our team reviewed the Pro X1 and Riot model back in March 2019. You can read it here. Basically, it has tremendous torque.
One thought on “Exway officially released X1 Pro Riot model and Riot Drive”
I’m surprised that there were no changes to battery life or range. Sounds like it’s just a little more comfortable, a little less water proof and more torque.
