Ryder is the main character of the series Ryder 10. He is a member of Road Crew, a motorcycle gang that travels the country. He obtains the Omnitrix randomly while avoiding the police. He has since left the Road Crew to become a hero. He also appears as a major character in Omnimania.
Ryder is about 15 or 16, wearing a black leather jacket common with bikers. He wears jeans, and usually sports a full face helmet, which protects his head in case of accidents, and hides his identity when he times out at inappropriate times. He has black hair and black eyes. He wears the Omnitrix on his left wrist.
Starting with the second season, he has a helmet that has a tracking feature, which allows the Tenn-Speed to find and come to him. It also can switch between full face mode and standard helmet form.
Not counting the Omnitrix, Ryder is an extremely skilled motorcycle rider, having been shown to avoid police and SWAT agents with ease. He is able to fight in alien form while riding with no difficulty.
Iron 883: His motorcycle for the first season. It's a black sports bike, which he has used in various escapes. While it took the weight of some of his heavier aliens, there were some that couldn't ride it at all.
Tenn-Speed: His new, hand made bike, starting in season 2. It is a low rider with raised seats, supporting his heavier aliens.
