The Eight Roads

In Air-Gear every Storm-Rider places an emphasis on a certain aspect of their "Run", which determines their "Type". Over time, the Storm-Rider's Run develops into a characteristic style and repertoire of tricks, which is termed as their "Road". Riders who master a Road to a high degree are called "King-level" riders, and King-level riders who possess their Road's "Regalia" are called "Kings".

The Regalia are special Air-Treck each a part of a Quantum code to Release and control the Sky Regalia and each Regalia is specifically engineered to use the air to work in conjunction with the King's Road; this is referred to as an "Infinity Atmosphere".

Regalia are a double-edged sword: Deploying one gives a huge power boost, but puts a huge strain on the user; a King can only use a Regalia a limited number of times before both their bodies and the Regalia give out. If the King doesn't have a "Tuner" to optimize the Regalia, it will become uncontrollable and the King will sustain terrible injury.

    Note* Link-Regalia have not been released yet.

Wind King.
Road - Wing Road.

Wing Road

The first Road introduced, it is said to be the "purest" and closest to the sky. Wind Road is broken down into several levels:

The rider runs a low pressure current by breaking the barrier front. The rider may also be able to dissipate impact forces throughout their body, greatly reducing injury.

The second element is "Gravity Control", or the shifting of one's centre of gravity in order to extend the height and distance of jumps.

The third element is "Wings", a phenomenon which takes an existing tailwind and adds the user's own wind to it.

The fourth principle is the rider's ability to see and predict the wind and differential pressure via scattering light.

The final principle is "Catching Moon Drops", or interfacing with the air. The rider interfaces with and creates a surface of air via differential pressure. This principle is needed to use the Wind Regalia properly.

Wind Regalia: Moonstruck Drop Bagram is the Regalia of the Wing Road. It is the back wheels of an A·T with the words "Welcome To NightMare" scribbled on them. Bagram can make an A·T anywhere from a dozen to several hundred times more efficient at using the air, allowing a Run truly comparable to flight. When activating Bagram, the wheels split into spiralling sections. Deploying Bagram by feeding wind into the core causes the skull emblem to glow, and the wheels unfurl into wings. Further adding wind causes Bagram to deploy fully, in which its wings run lengthwise along the A·T to resemble talons.

Flame King/Queen.
Grim Stamp.
Road - Flame Road.

The Flame Road is similar to the Wing Road in that both Wind and Fire are said to be "free". There are several principles to the Flame Road:

The first is the generation of heat via friction. This can bend light, create updrafts, and create illusions using heat mirages. This ability to create heat is especially useful against the Rising Road; a sufficiently skilled Flame Road rider can nullify all but the strongest Rising Road techniques with their flames.

The second is the use of fast and precise attacks to freeze the movement of their victims. These tricks are collectively referred to as "Time".

Flames are the "template" for each and every run.

The Flame Regalia uses all four wheels, with the back wheels decorated with a Kitsune. When activated, the wheels run to produce torrents of flames. Flame Regalia has a cyberairspace called Lon Houtz Bourne Street that is linked to every A-Ts memory data. This enables the Flame King to tap into the tricks of other riders using the activated Flame Regalia.

Fang King.
Road - Bloody Road.

Nicknamed "fang" because of its "slice" characteristic, the Bloody Road is literally carved into the flesh of one's adversary. "Slice" describes the practice of abrupt acceleration and deceleration (0-Max-0) to gain inertial energy, which exerts tremendous pressure on the thigh muscles.

Getting hit by a "fang" is described by Ikki as "felt like something exploded in front of my body". Bloody Road riders also use chains and hooks to bind their opponent. One of the Bloody Road's underlying themes is imprisonment; a number of Fang Kings have likened their road to being in jail. This attitude even manifests itself in the road's Infinity Atmosphere on more than one occasion.

The Fang Regalia: Bloody Armor is the Fang Regalia of Bloody Road. It comprises all 4 wheels of an A·T, and its core mechanism converts inertial energy into a shockwave, although its very presence in the narrow space of the wheel robs the A·T of the ability to jump. When deployed, the wheels split into a sawblade shape.

Thunder King/Queen.
Road - Rising Road.

Rising Road specializes in the offensive applications of electric and magnetic energy. It converts kinetic energy from the Rider's run into an electromagnetic field, enabling a skilled Storm Rider to create illusions and manipulate electricity for their own benefit. Ultimately, however, the Road's greatest strength lies in numbers, as demonstrated by Thunder King Nue and his team Black Crow. By applying illusions directly onto teammates, riders can create monsters actually capable of striking their enemies. Moreover, by using teammates to magnify the scale of his Infinity Atmosphere, Nue can create a giant formation of ice and lightning that easily pushes back an entire team of A-rank Storm Riders.

The Thunder Regalia is a full body suit capable of destroying an entire town. The rotation of this regalia generates electricity, and it becomes even stronger when conducted through special piano wires, based on Fleming's theory. It can create a strong magnetic force, attracting metal objects. It can also create electromagnetic waves that make people see illusions. Its core is a pair of dynamos capable of generating electricity and storing it in battery reels. When deployed, these battery reels undergo Roulette Wave Expansion and unreel massive amounts of cables through which current is dispensed.

Thorn Queen.
Road - Sonia Road

Sonia Road users are defensive experts, focusing on agility and is considered the road with the highest maneuverability. It is the opposite of the Bloody Road, in that it shreds the user's body instead of the enemy's. The Sonia Road constantly burdens the users body with high pressure, which is why the Sonia Road can reach its full potential at areas of high pressure. Storm Riders who follow this road have a natural advantage against the Wing Road and Gaia Road, according to Kilik of Sleeping Forest. With Sonia Road, the center of movement is changed from the knees to the hips, which greatly increases flexibility and nimbleness. This aspect limits the Sonia Road to women, as only their hips are capable of enduring the Road's demands. The principles of the Road are as follows:

The hip are the axis and the base point for all moves instead of the knee. This improves maneuverability by moving the rotational axis closer to the centre of gravity.

Supersaturation of the bloodstream with nitrogen through hyperventilation, which is used to form cushioning bubbles at joints.

The Thorn Regalia has Regalia the shape of a bow which allows it to fire arrow like sonicbooms which removes the recoil on hips as the user only needs to pull the string of the bow.

Rumble King/Queen.
Road - Over Road.

The Over Road's principle lies in the windmill theory - it compresses wind to form walls of air. Its strength grows with the strength of the wind it faces, as a strong wind can be compressed even further. The Hurricane Road is a fusion of the Wing and Over Roads; it combines both tricks and philosophies of both roads and incorporates the design of both original regalia.

Rumble Regalia: Ram Jet is the Regalia of the Over Road. Its core is a turbine chamber into which air is forced, compressed and heated into supercritical fluid, increasing its destructive capabilities. The Regalia has two distinct iterations: The original was a boombox-shaped piece of equipment that attached to the user's arms upon activation. It depended of the user's strength and when deployed, the attachments transform into claw-like appendages. The second iteration is completely integrated the core into an A·T. When deployed, the wheels split apart to reveal nozzles, increasing air intake. The wheels themselves act as the turbines. The Regalia's core was used to supply the missing material required for the Storm Regalia and while its inclusion enhanced the original capacity of the Storm Regalia it is a necessity in the Storm Regalia's schematics.

Pledge Queen.
Road - Ring Road.

The only Road that is primarily non-offensive, the Ring Road is a supportive road that consists of Link Tuners - mechanics who fix and tune other riders to their A·Ts. Not all Ring Road users can actually ride A·Ts. Ring Road focuses on sound - every rider and A·T has a rhythm. The Link Tuners match the rhythm of the A·T to it's rider's, increasing performance. A person with the potential for Ring Road will know the exact time without reference.

Tools: Link Tuners tend to carry an arsenal of tools and parts for fixing and tuning A·T or other machinery. Some modify their bodies in order to fit more tools, or increase productivity. When directly interfacing with a king, link tuners use special suits called "SC". The SC is skin tight, elastic, and translucent, containing 7600 sensors within its fabric. Tuners also can carry a small machine that resembles a stenographer's typewriters. This machine allows them to monitor and retune regalia on the fly.

A select few Storm Riders are shown to use the aural properties of the Ring Road in an offensive manner. Examples include Kanon of Tool Toul To , who uses a guitar mechanism to create blades of sound; as well as Merlin of Genesis , who can produce cutting sound waves with her long fingernails. Even Kururu , a person with no battle experience, shows the ability to detune and destroy AT based technology using her Infinity Atmosphere, Infinite Scale .

The Pledge Regalia is a metallic cross, roughly the size of a human. When deployed, the cross splits into a ring of 8 thinner, numbered sections intercrossed by a maze of wiring, each with a set of headphones which other Tuners can put on. Standing in the middle of the formation, the Pledge Queen synchronizes herself with these tuners, essentially granting her abilities to them for the duration of the Regalia's activation. However, this process is extremely exhausting to the tuners involved.

Gem King/Queen.
Road - Gaia Road.

A Road that specializes in interactions with the ground. Riders of the Gaia Road are shown to focus on immobilizing their enemies and damaging their A-Ts, limiting their ability to ride. This is reflected both in its Infinity Atmosphere and in the philosophies of its riders. Riders of the Gaia Road are also able to memorize the shape of the land, allowing them to locate other riders. Its principles are:

Using the piezoelectric effect, riders can paralyze opponents by numbing them.

Creating seismic waves to create a 'Sonar' that reveals information about the opponents.
Creating vibrations to levitate objects and induce seismic activity.

The core of the Gem Regalia: Hardest Apostolica is a 'wheel' attached to the front of an A·T via a swivel arm. When deployed, the arm swivels to the back wheel. The Core attaches to the wheel and "blossoms" into a transduction device that digs into the ground, essentially immobilizing the user for the duration the Regalia is deployed.

    Note* In order to begin with a Regalia you must receive administrator approval.
