The Speed Force is an energy field that grants all speedsters their power. Several speedsters have merged with it, including Barry Allen, Johnny Quick, and Max Mercury. Eobard Thawne stated that at it's core, the Speed Force is equivalent to time.

Due to the Speed Force being omnipresent within the DC Multiverse, syncing all the universes close to one another; it is a source of Infinite Energy. Also throughout it's many aliases, one of them, has it being defined as the Fourth Dimension. Those with access to the Speed Force can use a large number of abilities, usually revolving around speed. Powers vary throughout each Speed Force users. If the Speed Force ever became destabilized, the repercussions could potentially destroy the Omniverse.

Speed Force conduits have one main ability above all else. These characters immediately understand how to run at superhuman speeds and their bodies instinctively understand how to react at high-speed situations. Older speedsters have a reduced but maxed speed of 770mph which is just below sonic booms allowing them to react to situations without causing civilians undo stress. Speedsters in their prime can travel at much faster speeds such as the max level of recorded aided speed on Earth and even reach the speed of light with enough willpower. It is possible for conduits to travel much faster than the speed of light however such levels require an incredible amount of stress. Speedsters unaccustomed to their max level of speeds may detach themselves from the Speed Force or even become part of the Speed Force by accident. Speedsters commonly use their speed to manipulate and control airflow, as well as vibrate their bodies to intangibility and phase. Due to the Speed Force's connection to the timestream, speedsters can use it as a gateway to travel through time and dimensions by exceeding the speed of light.

Speedsters also possess superhuman physical characteristics, such as heightened stamina, agility, healing, senses, and sometimes strength, as well as increased mental capacity. The Speed Force also manifests a protective aura around speedsters that protect them from the harsh effects of moving at super speeds, greatly heightening their durability.

Speedsters mental capacities are enhanced to the extent that they can think exponentially faster than any ordinary human. Certain Speedsters have learned to tap into the Speed Force directly with their mind allowing them to tactically assess and predict the numerous possible and probable outcomes of most any given situation, as well as send their consciousness into the Speed Force to view alternate timelines. Some speedsters can even "listen" to the Speed Force in order to sense disturbances in the timestream.

Speed Force conduits bodies emit Speed Force energy that manifests itself as electricity. This Speed Force lightning varies in color from yellow, orange, red, pink, blue, indigo, and white. The lightning's properties are similar to common electricity, as it reacts magnetically to metals and can electrocute people on contact. Some speedsters have learned to manipulate their lightning to which they can project it as power arcs and blasts, create energy constructs, as well as manipulate electromagnetism on a minor level, and even heal others.

Certain speedsters can use the Speed Force for more advanced applications such as time manipulation, in which they can tap into the Speed Force's power to push time and space forward. Barry Allen was able to do this by accelerating the flow of time to negate Zoom's powers. When Wally West developed a temporary heart condition, he was able to use the Speed Force to stop the flow of time, allowing the same advantages of moving at super-speed, without needing to move fast at all. Other advanced applications of the Speed Force include stealing and lending speed, and "dividing" the Speed Force, in order to create energy copies of themselves.

In certain instances, rather than becoming a speedster, conduits of the Speed Force were gifted other power-sets. These conduits were granted powers such as: age manipulation, spacial-time mimicry, atomic inhibition, and process speed manipulation.
