Abilities and traits
As a Board-type Extreme Gear in Sonic Riders, the Light Board is well-balanced in its attributes with average statistics, an average rate of fuel-consumption and is suited for general riding.
While the Light Board possesses a relatively small Air Tank, is not exceptionally fast and consumes more Air than usual when boosting, it can carry the player's speed in gameplay for up to three-to-four times longer than most Extreme Gears can when boosting or when hitting a Dash Panel. Also, when receiving these speed boosts on the Light Board, they will not slow down unless the player is attacked, though it is still susceptible to being hit by obstacles or other Dash Panels that can break the boost. The Light Board also makes it easier for the player to perform Trick Actions.
