In addition to a range of tradional sidecars, EZS built the Flexit. The Flexit was a remarkable sidecar developed by South African engineer & designer Hannes Myburgh. Around 160 of these were built in several countries over a period of 15 years. Reportedly some were sold in England under the Watsonian banner.

Myburg tested one with Triumph, who recorded it as achieving 161 mph. A Triumph engineer told him that had he used 5th gear instead of 6th, which is an overdrive, it would have gone faster!
