The Rising-Trigger is Ryo Takaba's 3rd machine, succeeding his Neo-Tridagger ZMC.

It is unknown how it was created in the manga, but what is known is that its body was made of the reinforced ZMC material. In the anime, it was Professor Tsuchiya who developed and created the Rising-Trigger, based on the design data of the Blazing-Max he got from Masamune Ichimonji. In both cases, the car was given to Ryo Takaba during the middle of the 2nd world grand prix season.

Although the overall design is similar to that of Gouki's Blazing-Max and thus the cars were behaves similarly, it was Ryo's experiences as a racer that makes the car much faster, to the point when he returns to Japan to challenges the Ichimonji brothers (At the time, Gouki still has his Max Breaker.), he managed to win against them multiple times until Gouki is able to handles the performance of his new car.
