Cavity backs are typically found on the back of irons, right? Wrong. Thanks to Nike, that is about to change.

Following on the back of the Nike VRS Covert Driver, the VRS Covert fairway wood features the same cavity back design and eye-catching red colour.

Whilst the main feature of the club is the high-speed cavity in the back of the clubhead, the bright new crown design and colour hide the technology underneath, giving the Covert fairway it's name.

By removing the weight in the back of the club, Nike's engineers have been able to move the weight in the VR_C Covert to the corners. This industry-first design creates a more stable head with the weight on the outside, meaning more energy behind the impact as well as raising the MOI (Moment of Interia) and increasing the club's forgiveness.

Nike have also tweaked the NexCOR face, featuring in all the VR_S Covert range. The variable thickness behind the clubface creates more speed across the face, paying specific attention to shot struck on the bottom half, where Nike found most players are likely to make contact.

The VRS Covert is available in only 15 or 19 degree options, with four different flexes of the Kuro Kage Black 60 Shaft. In addition to the standard VRS Covert, Nike have also released the VR_S Covert Tour Fairway that features many of the same technologies, but also features Nike's FlexLoft technology.
