Description
Ikki Minami is a junior high school student with a dream - to become the best Air Trek rider in town. It won't be easy, as he faces a lot of competition from boys and girls alike. What is Air Trek? Just the latest craze that involves taking a two-wheel inline skate and adding a motor, suspension and a shock absorber to enable the wearer to execute the wildest, wackiest, most aggressive moves you can imagine. Ikki has a lot to learn as he fights his way to the top in this wild, sexy manga from the creator of Tenjho Tenge
ON THE REBOUND
After a stunning betrayal leaves Ikki a mere husk of what he once was, it's up to everyone he knows friends, teammates, rivals to get his head back in gear. With the Gran Scale Tournament fast approaching, Kogarasumaru needs all the practice he can get, and that means scheduling competition. But there could be more to their next opponent than what meets that eye...
This volume of Air Gear includes special extras after the story
