Flexible conduit in c1d1 locations

I had a building that was changed from a C1D2 location to a C1D1 location. The building currently has liquid tight mettalic flex running to some motors and other equipment. What kind of flexible conduit is available to run to this equipment now that it is a C1D1 location?
Thanks

See Section 501.10(A)(2). Technically, there are no "flexible conduits." However, there are flexible fittings - they are exceptionally expensive.

This Section also refers to Section 501.140 for applications of "Flexible Cords." The approved applications are very limited though.

The link in post #2 is to the Crouse Hinds product, but the point is that it is not called "flexible conduit" by the manufacturer.
