Heavy Gear. Works well even on poor roads.

— Description, Sonic Riders[1]

The Powerful Gear (パワフルギア Pawafurugia?) is a Board type Extreme Gear that appeared in Sonic Riders. It possesses the highest endurance of all the Extreme Gear in the game.


According to its profile, the Powerful Gear is a heavy Extreme Gear that works well on even the roughest of roads. It can be unlocked in the game by first collecting the Powerful Gear Repair Manual in Mission 5 for Sega Carnival and the broken Powerful Gear by completing Mission 5 for the Egg Factory in Mission Mode, and then collecting ten green junk, twenty yellow junk, ten red junk, forty blue junk and ten purple junk to repair it.

In terms of shape and forms, the Powerful Gear is very similar to the Power Gear. It mostly resembles a basic silver board, with silver accents and metal blue outlines on the sides.
