The black VRS Covert 2.0 is inspired by college football rivalry
Nike have introduced a Black version on the VRS Covert 2.0 Driver.
The concept of the colour black being associated with rivalry is especially popular during college football season.
It also inspired Nike Golf club designers when it came to creating the new matte black driver.
Nike Golf’s latest limited-edition innovation features a black Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2G grip, Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Black shaft, and matte black club head – a design element specifically modeled after matte black college football helmets that have popped up in recent years.
The black matte finish on the head provides a sleek, modern aesthetic and eliminates glare “The Covert 2.0 Matte Black Edition driver offers a unique, limited-edition design combined with Nike’s high speed cavity back technology,” says Rob Arluna, Nike Golf global golf club business director.
“The black matte finish on the head provides a sleek, modern aesthetic and eliminates glare. The black grip and shaft give the driver a stealth, covert look.”
High-speed cavity back technology redistributes weight to the heel and toe allowing for increased distance and more stability across the face of the driver.
The Covert 2.0 Matte Black Edition driver features fly-brace technology that ties the sole to the crown, stiffening the rear portion of the club and transferring more energy to the face at impact.
The Covert 2.0 Matte Black Edition driver also boasts two additional proprietary technologies: A larger, re-engineered NexCOR face for increased ball speed and distance, and FlexLoft adjustability, which allows athletes to easily customise loft and face angle positions for 15 drivers in one.
