Increases cornering ability.

— Description, Sonic Free Riders

Cornering UP is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is an Extreme Gear Gear Part that increases the turning abilities of Extreme Gear.


Cornering UP 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 dark green-colored circle with the image of a lighter green curved arrow with some flames on its outer curve inscribed in it.


This precision part will tune up your turning ability.

In gameplay, Cornering UP is a customizable Gear Part that can be attached to different Extreme Gears. It can be bought from the shop for 250 Rings.

When in use, Cornering UP will significantly increase an Extreme Gear's Turn attribute. This will improve the player's turning ability on the Extreme Gear they are currently using, allowing the player to make sharper turns when moving to the sides. This is very useful when encountering tight corners.

When using a Board-Type Gear, if Cornering UP 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 Cornering UP via switching their stance by turning their body around due to the Kinect controls of the game. This motion will also deactivate Cornering UP if it was active.
