YoYo Wiki

The Hyper Raider (Japanese: ハイパーレイダー) is a yo-yo licensed to Bandai for distribution in Asian countries by Yomega in the late-1990s as part of the Hyper Yo-Yo line-up.

It was also re-released in the 2003-2004 incarnation of the line. Recently in 2010, it was released again, this time as the StormTiger (Japanese: ストームタイガー).


The Hyper Raider is the Hyper Yo-Yo adaptation of the Yomega Raider, distributed in Asian countries by Bandai, most especially in Japan, where the Hyper Yo-Yo boom was in full swing at the time of its release. It features pretty much the same shape, ball bearing axle, and performance, but with edited side cap art now reading "Yomega-Bandai 1998 Made in USA Hyper Raider". It was noted by some to be a bit more responsive than the original Raider.

The Hyper Raider was also one of the most well-known and popular models in the original Japanese Hyper Yo-Yo line, having seen use by even the members of Team High Performance Japan.
