What Men Love About It!
FLEX MOTION TECHNOLOGY
The Braun Series 5 5030S is equipped with 2 senso-foil blades, each of them with their own suspension mechanism giving you a very smooth operation. Suitable for dry use only. The shaving head configuration is a typical of Braun, with two outer foils with octagonal perforations and one middle trimmer.
The outer two foils catch and cut those short hairs close to the skin and the ACTi Lift Trimmer, can capture the flat and longer hairs that grow in different directions.
FLEXI SHAVING HEAD & MULTI HEADLOCK
With independent movement, all the three cutting elements maintain constant contact with your skin. Braun calls this – FlexMotion Tec with Micro Motion. The independent movement of the cutting elements allows you to follow the contours of your face without any hassle. The whole shaving head pivots at 40 degrees back and forth.
This motion makes it easier for you to shave areas like the neck region. You can lock the head at 5 different angles for more precise cutting. All of this can be done by simply pushing the head into a different position then use the head lock switch, located in front of the shaver.
In two of the positions it is also possible to retract the middle trimmer and the two foils, you get only one foil head which is again very handy when shaving tricky areas like the one under your nose. The shaving head can move in 8 directions for constant contact with your skin.
The design of the head of this shaver provides great protection from razor burns. It gives you a close shave without cutting deep into the skin and reduces the risk of ingrown hair. This is important for men with sensitive skin.

Powered with a rechargeable lithium ion battery that takes an hour to charge fully and an optional 5-minute quick charge. It gives you 50 minutes of run-time in full charge.
