Equipment news: Nike unveil new Covert 2.0 rangeNovember, 2013
As well as new woods, irons and wedges there is a new premium ball
Nike have unveiled an innovative range of products at the company’s world headquarters in Oregon.
The new products boast four key technologies: Cavity Back technology in golf clubs; Speedlock RZN Core technology in golf balls; Lunar technology in footwear; and Mobility Enhanced technologies in apparel.
“For us, innovation and design is at the epicentre of everything we do,” said Cindy Davis, president of Nike Golf. “We obsess every detail. Is it fast enough? Is it light enough? Does it feel right? Sound right? Does it meet the eye? Does it move with the body? We challenge everything. We think something nobody else thinks. We build something nobody else builds. We improve something that no one else thinks needs improving. If it’s good enough, then we must make it better.”

VRS Covert 2.0 fairways
Coupled with High Speed Cavity Back technology for longer and straighter shots, a lower center of gravity promotes a higher launch with reduced spin, which produces an average of eight yards in additional distance compared to last year’s model.
VRS Covert 2.0 hybrids
Nike Golf engineers tapped into their “Linear Transition Design” methodology to create a new line of hybrids with progressively smaller head designs while increasing face height on each model.
VR X3X Toe Sweep wedges
With a wider sole area toward the toe and improved Nike X3X groove technology, the VR X3X Toe Sweep wedges deliver a more consistent shot in any condition, providingbetter ball flight and stopping power on the green
VRS Covert Forged irons
Nike Golf engineers incorporated a NexCOR face, Nike’s proprietary technology that delivers faster ball speed and more distance, and a high-speed cavity back design with a lower, deeper center of gravity for longer and straighter shots.
This new technology features an interlocking core design – the core’s surface is similar to that of a waffle iron – that interconnects with the compression layer to form a tighter bond. Speedlock Technology helps to harness more energy between layers for faster ball speed, longer distance and more stability into the wind.
There are four new golf balls featuring Speedlock RZN Core technology: RZN Platinum, Black, Red and White.
Nike Lunar Control shoes
Venom Green, Military Blue and Challenge Red pop against white and black premium full-grain leather uppers and highlight Nike’s proprietary full-length Lunarlon technology, a lightweight cushioning system that is highly responsive, resulting in a unique combination of comfort and support.
Nike Lunar Clayton shoes
Nike Golf footweardesigners combined a handcrafted, waterproof leather upper with lightweight Nike Lunarlon technology in the outsole for maximum responsive cushioning to create a versatile shoe for both on and off the course. A leather welt joins the upper to the outsole while protecting from the elements.
Nike Hyperadapt Wind jacket
Featuring the same four-way stretch technology and sweater-like feel as the Hyperadapt Storm-Fit jacket, the Hyperadapt Wind jacket is a lighter, windproof and rain-resistant version perfect for spring. A transparent outer shell showcases the jacket’s technical details inside and out.
