Sonic Riders

The Type-S was first seen being used by Storm to battle Sonic the Hedgehog, along with Jet the Hawk and Wave the Swallow. Using their Extreme Gears, which were foreign technology to Sonic, Storm and his team were able to defeat Sonic in their first confrontation.[1] The next day, however, when the Babylon Rogues arrived to destroy Knothole, Storm was attacked by Sonic, Knuckles and Tails, who had required their own Extreme Gear. With his Extreme Gear, Knuckles was able to combat Storm on his Type-S and eventually drive off the Babylon Rogues with the aid of his friends.[2]
