The E-Gear (E-ギア E-Gia?) is a Board type Extreme Gear that appears in Sonic Free Riders. It is the E-10000 series's personal Extreme Gear, and their default Extreme Gear. It replaces the E-gearG from Sonic Riders.
According to its profile, the E-Gear was developed by Dr. Eggman as a frictionless terrain traversal option for his E-10000 series. As such, the E-Gear's design reflects Eggman's own tastes. It is unlocked in the game, alongside Team Dark and Team Rose, by completing Team Heroes's and Team Babylon's stories. It is only usable to E-10000B in Story Mode and E-10000G in normal races, but is usable to all characters (except Dr. Eggman and Vector) in Relay Race. Furthermore, it is also used by the different-colored E-10000 series robots who appear in said racing mode as opponents.
The E-Gear's design is like that of a bulky board. It has thick and large grey accents on the edges around the front, the rear and most of the midsection. It mostly has a green coloration on the top surface, with a breaking orange stripe with light grey borders running across the midsection, two light grey circles on the top surface, and a light grey area on the front.
