 Additional Product Information:


Teamwork. Passion. Precision. These core values are installed in every Storm bowling ball by master craftsmen at the Storm manufacturing plant in Brigham City, Utah. A core’s angles and curves. A cover’s contrasts and surfaces. Together these elements create an unmistakable identity, uniquely its own.


The Inverted Feweight block has historically had a higher RG orientation. The higher the RG, the more resistant the ball will be to changing direction as it travels down the lane. This promotes a later transition with a cleaner shape through the front part of the lane. Add NeX into the mix, and you will see more change of direction down lane with

a motion that unmistakebly belongs to a Hy-Road.

NeX first made its debut on the AxiomTM, the newest touchstone from which all other balls are compared. The finishing touches clock in at 3000-grit Abralon, which has become the benchmark standard of surface profiles. Easily adjusted up or down, it provides quick access to a mutlitude of topographies with little effort. Inherently, NeX provides a unique chemical texture once cured. As the surface of the Hy-Road Max rolls down the lane, it starts to form weak molecular bonds with the lane material that pulls on the ball and ultimately slows it down. This is preciceily what’s needed in order for a ball to hook.

As you can see, there’s more to every ball than meets the eye. If performance is in your DNA, unleash it!

    Hyroad Max Review

    Posted by Sabrina Groves on May 12th 2021

    I am so glad I ordered this ball as it is absolutely amazing. The Hyroad Max is smooth through the front, pops on the backend and continues through the pins. The center where I bowl the lanes are oily to start so I am able to start the night with this ball and keep moving my feet left as the night goes on. We only have four on a pair during league so there is some transition but not a bunch so I have not had to move too far left. I really like the shape this ball gives me as it is something I did not have in my bag. I think this ball is going to be a great tournament ball for me as well especially if the lanes are oily or when they start to break down. With my lower rev rate when I have to move inside I have to ball up. The Hyroad Max will be a ball that I can ball up to play deeper on the lanes.

    The Hyroad Max will be a ball that is in my bag for league and tournaments. I am heading to the Open Championships at the end of June. The Hyroad Max will definitely be coming with me to both of those tournaments. I look forward to seeing what this ball gives me on the house shot when it lanes shines but also to see what it gives me during tournaments.

    Hy-Road MAX

    Posted by Curtiss Rasnic on Apr 27th 2021


    Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):THS


    Cover: NeX Solid Reactive
    Core: Inverted Fe²
    Finish: 3000
    RG: 2.57
    Differential: 0.046

    The new Hyroad Max is the newest solid added to the infamous Hyroad line. It uses the new NEX cover with the same famous Hyroad core. For me, this ball out of the box was just too much up front, with not enough down lane. After applying some Storm Pro Finish step 3 to the cover, I have not looked back. The ball now gets through the front part of the lane with ease, has plenty of midlane roll, then unleashes on the backend. I couldn't help but notice just how much it continued through the pin deck, keeping the pins low, and with that the carry has been phenomenal. I can usually start the night with this ball, but usually has to be put away by game 3. This ball sits nicely between my Reality and my shiny Incite. This ball will definitely be getting use in some upcoming tournaments.

    Storm Hyroad MAX - NeX solid coverstock - Inverted Fe2 core
    3000ab grit finish from factory - 5000ab grit for testing- layout - 60 x 5 x 35
    On older HPL panels with super wet fronts and sparky backends I practice and bowl league on 1 night a week the reaction was a little calmer then I though it would be. I attended several ball demos where this ball was a BEAST . I decided to enhance the coverstock to 5000ab grit to make the ball float on the front part of the pattern and not burn up in the front part of the lanes like my Axiom did with the same NeX cover and similar layout. The ball ultra smooth in the transition part of the lane and silky through the pin deck. Very predictable with the NeX coverstock at 5000ab. The next generation of HyRoad is here and it strikes to the MAX!!!

    HyRoad Max Review

    Posted by GLENN WENDEL on Apr 18th 2021

    Storm Hyroad Max Ball Specs:

    Cover stock NeX Solid Reactive
    Fe2 Symmetric
    Emerald / lime – Green Apple Scent
    Finish 3000 Sanded

    Bowler Specs:
    Right Hand. PAP 5” Over 1/2 up
    Rev Rate 300. Tilt 20. Rotation 50.
    Speed at cameras 15.5

    Storm has added another ball to its popular Hyroad line. This ball fits pretty much right between my IQ Tour Nano Pearl and my Proton Physics in total hook. The color is eye catching and I like the Green Apple scent added to the ball. The Max did not get as dirty from the lane as I would have expected after rolling a few games. The Hyroad Max has a very smooth arch type motion. I did not see much back end on a regular house shot or a more modified house shot. I did not alter the surface yet, but plan on trying some polish to perk up the back end after I play with the box surface fir a while. I can see where this ball would blend out a difficult lane condition or let you control the pocket on a wet / dry pattern. I feel this ball will be good for people who want a lot of control in their ball reaction.

    The Max has a very controllable ball motion.
    The color and scent are very appealing.
    This ball could be the one to bail you out on a difficult pattern.

    Hy-Road Max Review by Kyle & Joel Johnson

    Posted by Kyle Johnson on Apr 17th 2021

    Ball Specs:
    Storm Hy-Road Max
    Coverstock: 3000 NeX™ Solid Reactive
    Weight Block: Inverted Fe² Technology™ Core (Symmetrical)
    Color: Emerald/Lime

    This eye-catching addition to the Road line is the most aggressive yet. Taking this famous weight block and wrapping it with the NeX cover allows this ball to turn early and continue through the pins with ease. If you have thrown the Axiom then you will find that this ball is a little more aggressive overall, with a sharper turn from breakpoint. For solid cover stock lovers, this will be a great fit as it is versatile enough to open up the lane by moving left, or being that first out of bag before balling down to a less aggressive solid or hybrid cover. So far this ball has been very popular in the shop, possibly because of shelf appeal, but more importantly living up the ‘Road’ name.

    Storm - Hy-Road Max

    Posted by Kristijonas Sergejevas on Apr 12th 2021

    The Storm Hy-Road Max has a unique combination of a core that produces high RG and strong coverstock. These properties create a ball motion that you do not see with other bowling balls. This ball is also very eye-catching.

    I chose to drill my Hy-Road Max with a pin up layout: 65 x 5 ½ x 30. Knowing how strong this coverstock is, I went with a longer PIN to PAP distance to reduce some of the flare potential. Since the coverstock on this bowling ball is so strong, I find this ball to have a very smooth and controllable ball motion. Even though this NeX coverstock is very strong, the Inverted Fe2 weight block allows me to still move my feet left and open up the lane a little bit more than expected.

    I can see myself using this ball quite often on longer patterns in bowling centers with slicker and newer lane surfaces. This bowling ball looks good on higher volume patterns. The Hy-Road Max also deals with wet/dry conditions very well as the strong coverstocks helps to blend out the over/under reaction.

    Hyroad Max

    Posted by Zach Shoff on Apr 9th 2021

    Extremely smooth when exiting the breakpoint. For the most part solids are normally smooth but when I throw the Hyroad Max it really is the definition of smooth. Really controllable down lane and you can really tell where this ball is going to end up. The new Hyroad Max is stronger than any of the other Hyroads because Storm put the NeX coverstock on it which makes this ball pick up earlier. If you had a Hyroad before or want to try one now this is the ball for you. This will help take your bowling to the MAX!!!

    Hyroad Max
    The Hyroad line has always rolled well for me so I was very excited to drill the Hyroad Max. The Max has the same core as the other Hyroads do in the Inverted Fe2 but features the new NEX cover that is on the Axiom and Proton Physix. This combination creates the strongest and earliest Hyroad yet!

    I drilled mine with a 2.5” pin with a 1.5” pin buffer. The reason I chose this layout is because the NEX cover is very strong and also very smooth, so I wanted a layout that would highlight that attribute of the Hyroad Max. Thankfully, the Hyroad Max rolls just as I expected. It picks up the lane quickly and is very smooth down lane. It reminds me a little bit of my original Roto Grip Idol. For my game and layout, the Hyroad Max is best going up the lane when I need a slower response ball that will not overact on the back. I have heard some say that adding polish to the Hyroad Max allowed them to get in and shape it a little more as well. But I really believe the Max is best utilized as a slow response benchmark type of ball in your bag.
