The story of our team started In 2014 when our owner got his hands on one of the market's first successful electric skateboards made in the USA. It was a machine that looked good, mainly wowing people with a rarely if ever before seen functional electric skateboard. In Toronto he might have been one of the first few to be seen riding around the downtown core on an Esk8. As the years rolled by, he began to see others out there riding boards of various designs. The variations upgrades and new entries into the market were fascinating to see year by year. While most people were still marveling at the mere idea, he was searching for a proper street performance oriented design that would bring the speed, power, and rush of downhill longboarding to the street. The board had to be fast, powerful, stable under pressure, and be sleek and stealthy in its look and feel. There could be no controller boxes or batteries stuck to the bottom of the deck. The board had to be thin, look and feel like an actual downhill longboard and be something that could handle extreme speed, stress and performance.
Being a skater first and not an engineer, he decided to search for innovative and like minds to work with. Over the years He put energy into other Esk8 brands, and gained intimate familiarity with Esk8 design and literally thousands of kilometers of experience as a rider. With the speed at which Esk8 was developing it was clear to him that the market was trending fast towards something he had been waiting for, something he had been searching for.
In the Spring of 2019, Exway Canada was formed and represented the finding and coming together of people of great passion in skateboarding, design, and technology. Behind the Exway brand is a dedicated team of designers, engineers, and most importantly downhill skaters. There is so much that goes into bringing to market something like what we have here, it takes a lot of hard work and risk to be sure! Our product, the X1 and X1 Pro, represent the absolute pinnacle of Esk8 design and performance.
