The Advantage F (アドバンテージF,Adobantēji F?), also known as Advantage-F (アドバンテージ-F,Adobantēji-F?), is an Extreme Gear that appears as a Skate type in Sonic Riders, and later as an Air Ride type in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity. As a part of the Advantage models of Extreme Gears, the Advantage F specializes in a specific attribute, which is acceleration.
This Extreme Gear first appeared in Sonic Riders, as a Skate type Extreme Gear named "Advantage-F". According to its profile, it is customized to be used only by the Fly Type characters in the game. It is unlocked in the game by completing the Heroes Story in Story Mode and can then be purchased at the shop for a thousand Rings.
The design for the Advantage-F in Sonic Riders is rather simple, resembling that of a pair of yellow roller skates, with orange tongues, black highlights alongside the tongues and black soles.
Abilities and traits
As a Skate-type Extreme Gear in Sonic Riders, the Advantage-F is less powerful than most Extreme Gears, but is also more agile and more fuel-efficient.
The Advantage-F possesses no special abilities of its own, but it specializes in acceleration through its basic stats, allowing the user to reach higher speeds faster, though its other stats are below average.
Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity
Boosts the flight type's abilities. Has a larger effect for riders with better acceleration.
This Extreme Gear made a reappearance in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, in which it is named slightly differently, "Advantage F" and had been redesigned to be an Air Ride type Extreme Gear. It can purchased at the shop for two thousand Rings.
Following its change into an Air Ride Extreme Gear in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, the Advantage F received a complete redesign. In this game, it is similar in shape to the Greek letter Psi (Ψ), with large turbine-like exhaust ports on its three back points, while maintaining a complete yellow color scheme, similar to the one in the previous title.
Abilities and traits
As an Air Ride type Extreme Gear, the Advantage F is capable of Air Riding. By talking off Catapults, the Advantage F can begin gliding through the air and Dash Rings, gaining Gravity Points while doing so, until the rider loses too much momentum and falls.
Like in the previous title, Advantage F specializes in high acceleration, possessing stats similar to the ones it had in Sonic Riders.
