Accevice Corp's speed model. Pared down for maximum velocity, this gear is Shadow's alone.

The Black Shot first appeared in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, where it was a speed model produced by Accevice Corp, and pared down for maximum velocity. It is unlocked in the game, alongside Shadow, by completing the Heroes Story in Story Mode.
The Black Shot's design in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, like most other Board types presented in the game, bears a distinct resemblance to that of a regular board in terms of shape, but thicker and smoother. It is colored dark metal grey, with white highlights running along the sides and on the front, along with an additional red stripe on the outmost front. On its rear it possesses three exhaust ports, all with red and white stripes, that are arranged in a triangle. It also have two foot pads on the top surface, with a black area between them.
For his ride, Shadow took Accelovice's speed-heavy model and trimmed off all the fat.

The Black Shot reappeared later in Sonic Free Riders, where it was a speed-heavy model produced by Accelovice and customized by Shadow himself for better performance. It is unlocked in the game, alonside shadow, by completing Team Heroes' and Team Babylon's stories. It can be equipped with up to two Gear Parts.
In Sonic Free Riders, the Black Shot received a noticable redesign. It shape was changed slightly, giving it more recognizable board-like dimensions. It is primarily colored black, with white recesses along the edges, along with glowing orange recesses at each side of the rear, and white accents on the front and rear that extend slightly over the surface. It is also decorated with two red flames that each cover almost half of the Black Shot's upper surface, with a yellow arrow between the flames.
