Increases jump height when performing tricks.

— Description, Sonic Free Riders

Big Air is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is an Extreme Gear Gear Part that increases the height the rider can reach whenever they perform an Air Trick.


Big Air is an installable performance-enhancing component for Extreme Gears. Its actual appearance is unknown, though it is presented as an icon on the head-up display in the top-left corner of the game screen. Its icon is a purple-colored circle with the image of an end of a lavender Kicker with a lavender arrow pointing upwards inscribed in it.


This lightweight part will give you extra height during Air Tricks.

In gameplay, Big Air is a customizable Gear Part that can only be attached to different Extreme Gears. It can be bought from the shop for six hundred Rings.

When in use, Big Air will always enable the player to reach high areas to access shortcuts after performing Air Tricks from a Kicker, eliminating the need for the player to charge for the jump by crouching. In addition to reaching high areas, the player's Rank will always be at least an "S" as a result for that trick.

When using a Board-Type Gear, if Big Air is installed into the front slot, it becomes active in gameplay once the race begins. If installed into the rear slot, however, the player can activate Big Air via switching their stance by turning their body around due to the Kinect controls of the game. This motion will also deactivate Big Air if it was active.
