Nike launch VR_S Covert fairway woods and hybrids


Following the impressive unveiling of the new VR_S Covert driver, Nike Golf have now revealed the accompanying fairway woods and hybrids.

Both feature the new cavity back design that the driver boasts, which has allowed more weight to be repositioned in the heel and toe areas in order to promote more forgiveness through a higher MOI.

And like the driver, they benefit from a stunning red crown that hides the innovation below, hence the name Covert.

The fairway woods and hybrids will only feature the FlexLoft adjustability system in the Tour models, but the NexCOR face technology - that ensures good distance even on off-centre hits - has been incorporated into both Tour and regular models.

“Providing athletes with the tools to succeed is our ultimate goal,” said Nike Golf Director of Club Product Creation, Tom Stites.

“With the combination of High Speed Cavity Back, FlexLoft, and NexCOR technology, we are able to maximise distance, control, and consistency for every club in the bag. Athletes now have the performance they demand, as well as adaptability for any condition," he added.

The FlexLoft innovation in the Tour models allows better players to adjust the loft and face angle independently using a dual-axis design. Players can select one of five lofts in both the fairways and hybrids, but the head of the regular version is fixed.

We'll have more on the clubs in the next issue of TG, which goes on sale at the end of November.
