|Behind the scenes|
A Rod is an object found in the Game Grid used for generating and controlling light cycles. When preparing to create a vehicle, the rider reaches out and takes hold of the rod, with one hand at each end. It then generates a fully enclosed light cycle, forcing the rider into a riding position and completely enclosing them inside the vehicle.
Each rod glows with a prescribed color. The light cycle generated by a rod will match the color of the rod, and these color schemes can be used to define either individuals or a team color.
The rod was eventually succeeded by the baton.
