Daisy's Default Super Glider, as depicted in Mario Kart 8

Gliders are attachments to Mario Kart vehicles that help racers glide over large gaps, activating automatically when a racer rides over a blue boost zone with white chevron arrows. Gliders were first introduced in Mario Kart 7, and would later reappear in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Trivia

☀ The Flower Glider is the only glider in the Mario Kart series to receive such a drastic change between iterations. Most other gliders remained the same, or colors were only slightly altered.

☀ While it does not appear outside of the appearances listed above, the Petal Parasol from Animal Crossing bears similarities to the Flower Glider's Mario Kart 7 appearance.
