Air Trecks

Air Trecks are the skates that are used in Air Gear. They are a fictional type of motorized inline skates. They have a wheel motor, a power injection system, and a hydraulic cushion system. Each pair is extremely expensive and customizable. The motors and cushions in them allow the users to do stunts that would never be possible on traditional inline skates. In a way, the Air Trecks allow their users to fly. The normal Air Trek has two wheels, but some have been customized for four.


Itsuki Minami is known as a juvenile delinquent in his school. He is the leader of a gang known as the East Side Gunz. Itsuki, more often known as Ikki, discovers that the women who have been taking care of him, the Noyamano sisters, have a secret. They belong to Sleeping Forest, an elite group of Strom Riders who are known as the Kings of Air Treks. They give Ikki a pair of Air Treks and he goes after the Skull Saders, a group of Storm Riders who humiliated him earlier on in the day. Once Ikki experiences the flight that one can get from wearing Air Treks, he is hooked, and wants to become the best Storm Rider he can.
