HY-ROAD X

This year marks the tenth year the Hy-Road entered the fray with some grand stories to tell. This franchise is the baseline weapon providing easy access to both power and reaction, ideal for the modern game. The unique manufacturing process that’s applied at the beginning of every Hy-Road X’s life is often imitated, but never duplicated. Look inside and you’ll see a player-preferred shape that inspires confidence. Join us in celebrating the most beloved ball in Storm’s - and perhaps the world’s - history with the Hy-Road X.

Smartly designed Inverted Fe² Technology

Inverted Fe2 technology boasts a higher RG and differential like most other balls in the Thunder Line, but with one very important benefit: it lacks the core material that most other balls have. This enables the ball to have a much thicker shell which raises the coefficient of restitution. A higher energy transfer to the pins with less deflection upon impact is what can be expected with this design.



To strike, there must be friction

Slightly more aggressive than the famed R2S coverstock material, the R2X is right in the middle of Storm’s reactivity chart. It is the perfect balance of porosity and durably. It doesn’t grab too early, but doesn’t go too long either. Its versatility can benefit numerous bowlers of various styles.

Hy-Roads have never worked for me but...
I think I must be the only person that does not match up with Hy-Roads. Have had 4 different ones over the years, and changed drillings and surfaces, but just could not get them to work for me. When the "X" came out it has my favorite cover, R2X, from my favorite Storm balls (Gravity Shift and Dimension) so bought one - with the same negative results. Gave the ball to an youth bowler from a league I used to coach and his span and fingers (at 15 yrs old) were the same as mine. We filled the extra thumb space with (a lot of) tape so he could use it right away and he shot his first 700 series in his first 3 games. Gave 4 stars because it works for him even though not for this really old bowler (me). Keep making great bowling balls. These may not work for me but this one made a dedicated youth bowler very happy.

OG Hy-Road on roids
The Hy-Road X is everything you love about the original Hy-Road but more of it. Gets through the front part of the lane just as easy but kicks at least twice as hard on the back. Perfect ball for standing left and throwing right!
