Exclamation Gear Question For Team SSX Help?!

I cant find this in the forums sorry if been asked, but two things....Each rider comes with initially their own special gear i.e. hooks, wingsuit, goggles, etc. But can you not use/get these for other characters? or are you forced to use their default character? if so how do you get them? And for upgrading gear all ive seen in the gear selecting screen, since ive owned the game is just leveled up armor...thats it...can i not get upgraded hooks...wingsuite..goggles etc? Im a level 10 and have yet to see anything outside of armor! =( I must be doing something wrong...right? Thanks for any and all help guys!

You can buy most of the different bits of gear for any character as far as I know. The more you level up a character, The higher the level of gear you can buy for them. The game only displays four bits of gear that can be bought at a time unfortunately, so you can only chose from what you're given. The only way to see something else is to buy one of them and something else will take it's place. Also if you chose a track that requires a wing suit for example, you'll usually find that no matter what character you chose, there will be a wing suit available to buy for them if they don't currently own one. I have to say though that I've found certain bits of gear far more common than others. Solar panels I find to be the most elusive.

What you need to do is go to a drop where those are required and then buy them. So if you want a wingsuit you go to patagonia. If you want a solar panel you go to antarctica and so on

You can buy any gear for any character.

Make sure you are purchasing/browsing for gear while in Explore Mode or Global Events Mode.

Different gear will be available depending on which Range you are on.

Gear usually will go hand in hand with the gear used to defeat that Range's Survive It!

Patagonia for wingsuits
Africa for headlamps
Siberia for Ice Axes
Himalayas for Oxygen
Antarctica for Solar Panels
New Zealand for Pulse Goggles.

Are you on xbox live? What character are you using? Do you have any DLC?

Definately try:
Explore Mode : Do the Survive It drops in those ranges listed in the post above.

Ones that say Wingsuit Required, Ice Axes Required...

Let us know if it changed the gear. If not, I'll hop on SSX and tell you specific drops to try.

Im on xbox live, my favorite is Alex. I do not have any DLC :/, and ill def try as soon as i get home. I hate having to revert back to a lower level person just for gear, but everytime i look at her gear its armor, armor, and more armor, and i dont need or want armor lol

I'm not trying to derail the topic but as a side question: Do Legendary Wingsuits not exist? I swear I can't find one for Elise to save my life and it's very frustrating as I need a better wingsuit and her current one isn't that great. Just a Epic All Around which is lacking in my eyes.
