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.

10 Years strong!
Building on the legacy of the HY-ROAD series is the all new HY-ROAD X. If you liked the HY-ROAD you will love this ball. It does everything the original does but is suited for heavier volumes of oil. At league stand left and bounce it off the friction. At a tourney use it when the lanes transition. Either way you will find this anniversary version a must have in the bag.

Amazing Ball for the Price
I have been using a Storm Sky Rocket with a League Average of 169. I bought a Storm Hy-Road X and the ball is way more reactive and blew me away my first few games were not amazing but after i slowed down and moved a bit i was getting solid pocket balls back to back without leaving ringing tens and bad breaks. Overall amazing ball I have already recommend the ball to all my friends.

Storm Hyroad-X
The Hyroad X features the R2X Solid cover, wrapped around the proven inverted FE2 core found on all of its predecessors. For this video I decided to use a 41 foot challenge pattern, to give everyone a little bit of a different look. For anyone that knows me, the Hyroad has been a staple in my bag for as long as I can remember now. It’s one of the most consistent higher RG balls that I’ve been able to use on a variety of conditions, that never seems to run into any over under. So naturally, when the release of the Hyroad X was announced I got excited. I ended up knocking the shine off with a fresh 2000 pad, then going back over the surface with a fresh 4000 pad to add a little more of a higher grit finish to it. This allows the ball to see the pattern a little sooner then out of box, but still retain a lot of energy downlane. When compared to the original, you can see it provides a slightly rounder shape and a few more boards overall in terms of strength. I can see myself throwing the Hyroad X as a ball down from a Phaze ll or physiX during tournament play, or the first ball out of my bag during a variety of league conditions. Remember to preorder your own at your local pro shop for the October 19th release date!
