    Default What's the basis of air gear?

    Ever since I first read air gear, I wanted to know what the original sport was from.

    Do you think it's rollerblading? I know that Japan has one champion in the X-games.

    It also bears a strong resemblance to what I see as "freestyle walking," going from A to B in the shortest period of time (jumping fences, running up walls, etc).

    I think it's based on fanservice, mostly. And excellent character design.

    Rollerblading/Roller derby is the primary basis, freerunning (which you mistakenly called "freestyle walking") would be a secondary one.

    Uryuu freaky, pale and geeky,
    how do your powers grow?

    Personally I don't think they put much thought into freerunning. Basically its pure rollerblading in a way because everything becomes a skating/trick park. But anywho, whoes us to question Ito Ogure

    I love those breathtaking doublepages with nothing but a Stormrider and the vast sky on it. Thus I shall define the basis of Air Gear as "flying."
