It uses the same symmetrical Inverted Fe2 core design as the original, but the coverstock has been changed to R2X Solid from the R2S formulation used on the original, the Hy-Road Pearl, and the Hy-Road Solid. This stronger cover is factory-prepped to a 1500 grit polished box finish that provides moderate length on medium volume patterns. The Hy-Road X fits between the original Hy-Road and the Hy-Road Nano in total hook on these type of conditions.
