It's not about speed: The longer you glide, the more boost (Kick in the a"") you get after the glide.

Thanks, would it be better to hold up then?

As a side note, during "cannon" sections where you're launched straight forward with the glider, leaning your Kart back will let you move slightly faster than people who don't.

Oh, so that's how it works? I guess there's actually a point to learning how to hit the edge of a jump / boost pad during a glide and keep gliding, I thought it was just for show.

Also, certain characters are faster in the air while gliding like Iggy, who in the last race I played, zoomed right past me at the end to take 2nd.
