The Flexispot Standing Desk Converter
The Flexispot Desktop Workstation is a actually a series of four standing desk converters made by Chinese office fitness manufacturer Loctek—the M1 (27″), M2 (35″), M3 (47″) and M4 (41″Corner Cut). All the Loctek products—including their monitor arms, standing desks and desk bikes—are now available under this new Flexispot brand, which appears to be designed to better target the American audience, and to look like a US-based company. Behind the scenes it’s the same company.
We had the opportunity to spend a little time with these new units at the ErgoExpo trade show, and came away impressed with their price point and stability. These desktop risers are squarely in the Z-lift category (one of five categories of lift mechanisms we explore in our round-up review of the best standing desk converters). Within the Z-lift category these Flexispot units are marketed first and foremost as Varidesk alternatives, but their closest comparable is actually the Ergotron Workfit-T given that its key differentiating feature is a straight up-and-down lift mechanism versus the forward arcing mechanism of the Varidesks.
Lab Test Coming Soon
Loctek is sending us an evaluation unit of the M2 for lab testing so watch this space for the upcoming review. The M2 (35″ wide) is their top-selling unit, and least expensive. You can also subscribe to our FREE newsletter to find out as soon as we publish our official review. In the meantime, check out our round-up of published standing desk converter reviews, and learn more about how we review products.
In recent news, Locktek has been named in a lawsuit for alleged patent infringement regarding their standing desk converter design. And they’re not the only ones – the current lawsuit includes a slew of other standing desk converters manufacturers. So who’s suing? None other than the current market leader, Varidesk. We’ll keep you updated on any developments.
