The Advantage P (アドバンテージP,Adobantēji P?), also known as Advantage-P (アドバンテージ-P,Adobantēji-P?), is an Extreme Gear that appears as a Skate type in Sonic Riders and later as a Bike type in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity. As a part of the Advantage models of Extreme Gears, the Advantage P specializes in a specific skill, which is power.
This Extreme Gear first appeared in Sonic Riders as a Skate type Extreme Gear named "Advantage-P". It is customized to be used only by the Power Type characters in the game. It is unlocked in the game by completing the Babylon Story in Story Mode and can then be purchased at the shop for a thousand Rings.
The design for the Advantage-P in Sonic Riders is rather simple, resembling that of a pair of red roller skates, with black highlights alongside the edge of where the tongues would be and the lateral arch, small white lines on the sides and the front toes and black soles.
Abilities and traits
As a Skate-type Extreme Gear in Sonic Riders, the Advantage-P is more agile and fuel-efficient than most other Extreme Gear, but does not lack in power like most other Skate types.
The Advantage-P possesses no special abilities of its own, but it specializes in endurance and durability through its Power stat. This compensates for the lack of power that the Skate type Extreme Gears are known to have, and allows the user to maintain speed over rough terrains and when going uphill. However, its other stats are below average and its small Air tank limits the usage of its Power stat.
Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity
Boosts the power type's abilities. The tougher the rider, the greater
This Extreme Gear made a reappearance in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, where it was given a slightly new name, "Advantage P" and had been redesigned to be a Bike type Extreme Gear. According to its profile, the tougher the rider is, the greater effect will the Advantage P have. It can be purchased at the shop for two thousand Rings.
Due to having been made into a Bike type Extreme Gear, the Advantage P underwent a complete redesign in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity. In this game, its design resembles mostly that of a regular red, yet bulky, racing motorcycle with black and white highlights and wheels.
Abilities and traits
As a Bike type Extreme Gear in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, the Advantage P is more powerful, but less maneuverable than most other types of Extreme Gear and allows its rider to crash through obstacles and barricades without slowing down, gaining Gravity Points for each destroyed obstacle.
Like in the previous title, Advantage P specializes in high endurance. It has stats similar to the ones in Sonic Riders, giving it better basic endurance and durability.
