In Sonic Nexus Riders, players can purchase or unlock several different kinds of Extreme Gear. This is the list of Extreme Gear available in the game.

List of Extreme Gear

There are a few things to keep in mind when selecting Extreme Gear:

  • Leonidas and Nexian Soldier do not use Extreme Gear.
  • Most Extreme Gear can use Gear Parts, though there are some that cannot.
    • Board-type Extreme Gear can use up to three Gear Parts, while the rest only use two.
      • Ability-type Gear Parts are a must for all Board-type Extreme Gear that can use Gear Parts, however.
    • Special-type Gear Parts do not take up any slots and can be equipped on any Extreme Gear that can use Gear Parts.
  • Dr. Eggman and Vector are strictly Bike-type riders.
  • Metal Sonic and E-10000G are strictly Board-type and Air Ride-type riders.
  • Ulala and Jacky Bryant are strictly Board-type and Skate-type riders.
  • When Sonic enters a race with the Chaos Emeralds, he starts off with 50 Rings and must collect more to maintain his super form.
    • Speaking of Rings, The Crazy consumes them instead of Air as well.
