New Driver Steals the Show at Nike Golf’s Global Innovation Summit
-Nike VR_S Covert Is The World’s First Ever High Speed Cavity Back Driver-
BEAVERTON, Ore. (November 5, 2012) – Nike Golf’s momentum of non-stop innovation is on show in full force this week at the company’s Global Innovation Summit in Orlando, Florida. The technology and design-filled event is being headlined by today’s introduction of what promises to be an industry sensation. Nike Golf is the first in history to bring high-speed cavity back technology to a driver that conforms to USGA and R&A Rules.
This visually stunning iconic red driver stands out as the most innovative club Nike Golf has ever produced. Its three proprietary technology platforms: High Speed Cavity Back; FlexLoft adjustability; and NexCOR face, combine to create unprecedented distance, control and forgiveness.
In addition to dramatically enhancing performance, the VR_S Covert wow-inducing design and engineering also simplifies the consumer’s retail experience, since the FlexLoft adjustability system allows for the driver to easily be changed to any loft and any face angle at any time. This creates 15 different options in one single club to meet the various swing characteristics of golfers.
“With the VR_S Covert we have created a game changing piece of technology that has already begun a growing industry buzz,” said Rob Arluna, Nike Golf’s Global Golf Club Business Director. “It is visually exciting, it feels and sounds amazing and, most importantly, it creates powerful results with a high degree of control. Golfers and our Nike Golf Tour athletes are going to have a lot of fun with this driver.”
The High Speed Cavity Back in the VR_S Covert is a technology used in irons and now brought to drivers, fairways and hybrids for the first time by Nike Golf. This technology leads to more stability at impact, which delivers more energy to the ball, resulting in more distance and control. The Cavity Back is only visible from the sole view but is covered and hidden underneath by the crown to be more visually and pleasing at address – hence the name VR_S Covert. By incorporating this new hidden geometry into the driver, Nike Golf engineers have been able to move the weight of the club to the heel and toe of the golf club, raising Moment of Inertia (MOI) to increase forgiveness and add even more distance to off-center shots.
Nike Golf’s FlexLoft is a simple pull, turn, and push/tighten mechanism that allows for an intuitive adjustment system. The patented Dual Axis adjustment allows golfers to choose their loft and face angle independently of each other by decoupling loft from face angle. This all leads to better ball flight for more distance as well as enhanced workability. This easy to use system gives the golfers 15 different options to suit their game and course conditions.
The NexCOR face technology featured in the VR_S Covert line is designed to deliver faster ball speed and longer shots from a wider area of the face. NexCOR creates more speed at impact by employing a variable face thickness that moves the sweet spot higher from the heel of the club to the center high, where most golfers are likely to make impact.
The VR_S Covert driver will be available in golf stores throughout North America and Europe on February 8, 2013 and in the rest of world starting on February 15, 2013. The driver will be offered in two models, the VR_S Covert Tour and VR_S Covert. The VR_S Covert Tour is 430cc and features a deeper face and a fixed weight screw. The VR_S Covert is 460cc and has a wider breadth. Both models will come with Mitsubishi Rayon’s new Kuro Kage shafts that are produced with higher carbon fiber density for superior control and power.

The Cleveland 588 RTX CB Wedge has a new larger groove design along with laser and Rotex milling on the face. Spin is generated by friction. The more friction there is between the ball and the clubface at impact, the more the ball spins. Having cleaner contact and a rougher surface on a wedge clubface increase friction. The Rotex Face on Cleveland Golf’s new 588 RTX wedges has three technologies that promote cleaner contact and add surface roughness. Grooves function like tread on a tire, channeling away moisture and debris to improve contact. On a wedge face, the larger the grooves, the more moisture and debris can be channeled away to allow for cleaner contact with the ball. The Cleveland 588 RTX CB Wedge is available in a Satin and Black Pearl Finish. Click Here to watch a video and learn more about the new 588 RTX Wedge.
The key new technology in the recently announced TaylorMade RocketBladez Irons is the “Speed Pocket,” inspired by the distance-enhancing benefits of the TaylorMade RocketBallz fairway wood and Rescue clubs. TaylorMade engineers incorporated the Speed Pocket into RocketBladez irons to promote faster ball speed and a higher launch angle to promote longer, high-flying, quick-stopping shots. Altogether, the TaylorMade RocketBladez Iron set consists of eleven individually designed clubheads, each tailored in size, shape and features to maximize distance, control and feel like never before.
Incorporated into the 3- through 7-irons, the Speed Pocket is a 2mm-wide slot in the sole of the iron that flexes and rebounds at impact, increasing the speed of the face to promote faster ball speed, a higher launch angle and a higher, stronger ball flight that lands on a steep, quick-stopping descent angle.
The Speed Pocket advantage is especially effective on impacts made low on the face, TaylorMade studies indicate that 68% of iron shots by amateur golfers are mis-hits below the center of the face. The Speed Pocket helps to significantly increase ball speed and distance on those low-face mis-hits.
