— Description, Sonic Free Riders[1]

The Explosion (エクスプロージョン Ekusupurōjon?) is a Board type Extreme Gear that appears in Sonic Free Riders. It can release small explosions when dashing.


According to its profile, the Explosion must be handled with care, presumably due to its ability being highly dangerous. It can be purchased from the shop for 400 Rings.

The Explosion has a very typical shape for a Board type Extreme Gear in Sonic Free Riders. It is shaped as a typical board, with a pair of small fins on both sides of the rear. It is primarily colored crimson, with its crimson surface being made of several vertical layers, and has silver metal accents on both sides of the front and the midsection, along with a dark grey area running across the midsection of it, seemingly splitting the Explosion in half. On its top surface it also has two circular pad that looks like high-tech components.

Abilities and traits[]

As a Board type Extreme Gear in Sonic Free Riders, the Explosion is well-balanced in its attributes with slightly below average statistics, and is suited for general riding.

When using this particular Extreme Gear in a race, the Explosion will release a small explosion (hence its name) behind it whenever the player performs a Kick Dash which can damage any race partitioners that comes too close. It can be equipped with two Gear Parts.
