TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 3 Cheats and Tips
Start with Supersport
There are two bike classes in Ride on the Edge 3: Supersport and Superbike. Both classes are unlocked at the start of the career, and you can also run Supersport and Superbike seasons simultaneously.
You might be tempted to start at the top with the Superbike class. But if you’re new to bike games or have never played an Isle of Man TT game before, we strongly recommend starting with the Supersport class.
These bikes are slower and easier to handle than the more powerful Superbikes, making them ideal for learning how to ride.
That said, Supersport bikes aren’t exactly slow – you’ll still hit speeds of over 150 mph on tight country roads.
Controlling the bikes in Ride on the Edge 3 takes time to master, but they feel intuitive once you get used to the handling. To help you hone your skills, there are three physics settings: beginner, intermediate and realistic.
If you’re new to bike games, start with the Beginner setting. This setting improves stability when riding over bumps, making the bike much easier to control at high speed.
To adjust the assists, enter the pause menu and go to Game Settings > General. Then change Physics Simulation Level to Beginner. Also, make sure Braking System is set to Combined and Tuck-in Method is set to Automatic.
As well as changing the physics, you can also manually alter assists on the fly. Using the d-pad, you can toggle the anti-lock braking system (ABS), traction control (TC), anti-wheelie and electronic braking system (EBS) from one to three.
However, we recommend leaving these settings on the highest setting to start with. Once you feel comfortable, try applying the Intermediate physics setting and gradually turning each assist down one by one.
Controlling a bike is fundamentally different to a car. Smooth inputs are key: accelerate and brake progressively to keep the bike stable. If you’re used to driving cars in racing games, you also need to brake and turn in a lot earlier. This is because it takes extra time for the rider to physically lean into the corner.
As you exit a corner, gently apply the throttle to prevent spinning the rear wheel. Avoid braking while turning and hitting kerbs as this will unsettle the bike, causing you to fall off. If you accidentally hit a kerb, it’s possible to save it by lifting off the accelerator depending on the speed and angle you hit it.
Crashing is inevitable when you’re getting started. But practice makes perfect, so don’t be disheartened. Explore the open world between events to get a feel for the bike and practice without any pressure.
