Description

This Extreme Gear first appeared in Sonic Riders, as a Bike type Extreme Gear named "Cover-S". According to its profile, the Cover-S is enhanced especially for Speed Type characters, meaning that only the Speed Type characters in the game can use it. It can be purchased at the shop for 500 Rings.

The design for the Cover-S in Sonic Riders mostly resembles that of a traditional motorcycle scooter. It is mainly colored light blue, with white and black highlights on the front and each side of the rear, a black seat, and a black floorboard.

Abilities and traits

As a Bike-type Extreme Gear, the Cover-S is more powerful, but less maneuverable and less fuel-efficient than most other types of Extreme Gears.

Due to the Speed Types possessing greater top speed that other characters in the game, but lacks better acceleration and greater endurance, the Cover-S gives good stats to boost its rider's acceleration and power in exchange for a smaller Air Tank.
