Keep your distance! This wicked Gear snatches Rings from any rivals it bumps into!

— Description, Sonic Free Riders[1]

The Steel (スティール Sutīru?) is a Board type Extreme Gear that appears in Sonic Free Riders. It can steal Rings from any opponents it collides with.


According to its profile, the Steel is described as a "wicked Gear". It can be purchased from the shop for 450 Rings.

The Steel's design is like that of a rather typical, yet high-tech Extreme Gear. It has a board-like, yet sturdy looking shape, with sharp corners. It is mostly colored dark gray, with an accent in a lighter shade of gray encircling it on its outmost edges. It also has orange spikes on the accent on the outermost edges (two on the sides and two on the front), and circular pads on the top surface, decorated with different lines.

Abilities and traits[]

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

When using the Steel during a race, any opponents that the player comes into contact with while racing, will result in the Steel taking a certain amount of collected Rings from the opponent's Ring count, and add it to the player's own. However, the Steel, while having no upgrades or upraded once (that is collecting thirty rings to receive an upgrade), has an extremely small Air Tank. It can be equipped with two Gear Parts.
