Move over, roller skates! The self-propelled, high-tech trick skates known as Air Treck have taken the world by storm. Itsuki ‘Ikki' Minami is a boy who'd love to get his hands on a pair of Air Trecks so he can fly through the sky like the beautiful girl he's seen over the rooftops, but he's left instead with being beat up by brutal, Treck-wearing ‘storm rider' gangs like the Storm Saders.
