The Super Glider is the default glider part for all karts in Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart Arcade GP DX, and Mario Kart 8. It does not offer any stat boosts in any way, but like all the other gliders that appear in the game, it enables racers to go airborne for a brief time period. Its color scheme is determined by the character who is using it.

Mario Kart 7[edit]

The Super Glider made its first appearance in Mario Kart 7 as the default glider. It features the emblem of the character on each side. It does not increase nor decrease any stats. It shares its stats with the Gold Glider and Beast Glider.
