Air Knight (エアナイト, Ea Naito) is an Energy Layer released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Cho-Z Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-130 Random Booster Vol. 13 Air Knight.12E.Et on December 27th, 2018.

Description

The motif is of the wind knight, Knight. A right-spin Stamina Type Cho-Z Layer that reduces friction with the ground surface by creating an upper force with a propeller-shaped blade while increasing centrifugal force with the largest layer of the Cho-Z series.
— Official Description

Takara Tomy's Air Knight is a Stamina Type Energy Layer, that features a wide, round perimeter. As part of the Cho-Z Layer System, Air Knight features metal in its design; in this case, the inner circumference of the Energy Layer is lined with metal. Like Maximum Garuda, Air Knight features blades that connect to its perimeter, creating Upper Force.

In theory the Upper Force will "lift" the Beyblade off of the Stadium and decrease friction between the Performance Tip and the stadium floor to improve Stamina. In practice however, the blades instead create air resistance when spinning and slow the Beyblade down, an issue that becomes exacerbated the harder Air Knight is launched.

Due to its round shape and excellent Outward Weight Distribution (OWD), Air Knight is an excellent option for Stamina/Defense Combinations.

Overall

While a decent Energy Layer at its release, Takara Tomy's Air Knight has since been outclassed as it is too light to be competitive in the current metagame.
