Nike Golf engineers and designers have built upon the benefits of the first generation of Covert irons and improved specific design elements to make it easier for golfers to hit the ball farther and higher with more stability and feel in the new VRS Covert 2.0 set.
“What’s impressive about the VRS Covert 2.0 set is that golfers can be aggressive and confident with these irons,” said Nike irons engineer Chris Savage.
“This set utilizes our largest cavity and thinnest perimeter to deliver higher ball speed and greater distance,” said Savage.
“We have also refined our leading edge bevel to make it easier for these irons to go through the turf. Throughout development, these irons have proven to be the best distance irons we have created to date,” added Savage.
The centre of gravity was shifted behind the centre of the face to provide a more solid impact where golfers hit the ball most to create more distance with more feel.
Engineers also lowered the centre of gravity by modifying the mass in the back of the clubhead and shifting that weight lower and more towards the toe for a higher and more stable ball flight.
A larger cavity in the VRS Covert 2.0 irons moves more metal to the perimeter of the club head and allows for a larger face to amplify the trampoline effect and produce more ball speed at impact.
Coupled with a larger cavity, Nike’s proprietary NexCOR variable face thickness technology is used for greater ball speed off the face for more distance.
A new leading-edge bevel provides more sole area to hit through the turf for an additional, effective bounce to the golf club, which is a crucial benefit especially in soft conditions.
The VRS Covert 2.0 irons feature Dynalite 105 Steel and Kuro Kage graphite shafts with Golf Pride 2G wrap grips.
