PRECISION POWER: NIKE GOLF UNVEILS VAPOR PRO COMBO IRONS
New Modern Muscle design delivers ultimate blend of precision and power in a multi-material construction.

Today Nike Golf revealed its new Vapor Pro Combo irons, part of the Vapor iron family, at an event in New York City. Developed at The Oven with Nike Golf athlete insights, Nike’s Vapor Pro Combo irons deliver the unique combination of more distance and control through innovative Modern Muscle design. Modern Muscle is defined by balanced weighting for perfected precision and power. As a collaborator throughout the development of these irons, Nike athlete Rory McIlroy used a prototype of the Vapor Pro Combo (MMPROTO 2i) to win the 2014 Open Championship.

The new Modern Muscle design shifts the center of gravity, previously located closer to the heel, toward the center of the face. The long irons (2i-7i) feature a forged chassis with a thin, high strength machined face and a lightweight RZN insert to promote faster ball speeds, higher trajectory, and increased stability with pure feel. The short irons (8i-AW) feature a forged construction with a shallow cavity that promotes a strong, penetrating trajectory for enhanced shotmaking.

“I tested a prototype version of the Vapor Pro Combo 2-iron for a few months and worked with Nike to make it better for me,” said Rory McIlroy after winning the Open Championship. “They brought me this 2-iron to try out at the Nike Performance Fitting Center at Archerfield last month and I loved it. It was an instant hit and I immediately put it in the bag at The Scottish Open.”

For the first time, Nike Golf club engineers incorporated proprietary, lightweight RZN material – a modified version of the material found in the high energy core of Nike Golf’s line of RZN golf balls – in the cavity of the Vapor Pro Combo long irons, 2i through 7i. RZN technology displaces 45g of material to the perimeter of the club head while tuning impact feel. The result is enhanced speed, trajectory and forgiveness while maintaining workability and pure feel.

“The Vapor Pro Combo is one of our most innovative iron constructions to date,” said Nate Radcliffe, Nike Golf’s Director of Engineering. “Our precision application of multiple materials throughout this Modern Muscle design has fueled the breakthrough performance characteristics that our athletes such as Rory are reporting back to us. This iron has the clean lines and workability of a blade with the forgiveness of a game improvement iron.”

The Vapor Pro Combo is constructed with progressive technology and geometry throughout the set, a concept first brought to market by Tom Stites with the original Nike Pro Combo in 2002.

“We recognized that athletes had different requirements throughout their set of irons,” said Tom Stites, Nike Golf’s Chief Imagineer. “The original Pro Combo was an industry first in the mixed set category and this Vapor Pro Combo represents our most refined version to date.”

Precision-machined X3X grooves deliver spin control and shot-to-shot consistency, while progressive blade lengths and sole widths featuring a beveled leading edge allow for forgiveness and enhanced versatility.

Slightly longer, lower profile long irons and classically-shaped short irons give the Vapor Pro Combo irons a modernized, updated look.

The Vapor Pro Combo irons will be available on Nike.com and at select retailers October 31, 2014.

PURE PRECISION: NIKE GOLF UNVEILS VAPOR PRO IRONS
Insights from Nike Golf athletes drive development and design of Nike Golf’s most precise irons to date.

Today Nike Golf revealed its new Vapor Pro irons, part of the Vapor iron family, at an event in New York City. Developed at The Oven and carefully crafted based on direct insights from Nike Golf athletes including Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, Nike’s newest forged blade irons feature innovative Modern Muscle design. Modern Muscle is defined by balanced weighting for perfected precision and power.

Nike Golf club engineers kick-started the process for perfected weighting several years back. By analyzing the wear patterns on Woods’ irons – with an impact pattern centered to slightly toe-biased on the club face, but with a natural center of gravity closer to the heel of the club, Tiger and the club team collaborated and came up with what became a kept secret for several years – the addition of tungsten plugs. Nike Golf Master Modelmaker Mike Taylor added tungsten plugs to the toe of Woods’ irons to move the center of gravity away from the heel and locate it in the center of the face. The result: maximized precision and improved feel on both center and off-center strikes.

“Years back when we tested the parts with adjusted weighting, I immediately noticed a more balanced feel and more consistent performance,” said Woods. “Working with the club team to bring this concept to life was a great experience. I hit three or four shots with the Vapor Pro, and I knew right away – they sound and feel more solid, more balanced and even more consistent than the tungsten loaded traditional blades I have played for years.”
By bringing Modern Muscle design to the masses, golfers now can experience the same benefits of a better balanced iron as Woods, McIlroy and other Nike Golf athletes on Tour.

“When I joined the Nike team, the VR Pro Blade irons were one of the easiest transitions in my bag. To improve my performance, my collaborations with the Oven team were based upon consistency and feel,” said McIlroy. “With the new Vapor Pro irons, they’ve worked to achieve that for me.”
“The unique, Modern Muscle profile introduced in the Vapor series of irons both balances the weight of the hosel and structurally reinforces the blade profile resulting in immediately discernable improvements in precision and feel for our athletes,” says Nate Radcliffe, Nike Golf’s Director of Engineering. “In testing, most of our athletes comment that these clubs feel and perform as if there is more mass behind the ball with a heavier and more solid impact.”

A modernized take on the classic Nike blade profile, the forged Vapor Pro irons feature a slightly longer blade length in the long irons with one degree of added bounce to add forgiveness through the turf. Precision-machined, third generation X3X grooves on a forged 1025 carbon steel chassis allow golfers to control spin and shot-to-shot consistency, while narrow sole widths make it easier to hit from less-than-ideal lies. Thin top lines and straight leading edges with minimal offset offer the ultimate in alignment and shot-shaping workability. The Vapor family of irons feature the satin chrome finish preferred by our athletes for glare reduction and optimal alignment across all models.

The Vapor Pro irons will be available on Nike.com and at select retailers October 31, 2014.

PURE POWER: NIKE GOLF UNVEILS VAPOR SPEED IRONS
New Modern Muscle design and metalwood construction create a breakthrough balance of power and stability.

Today Nike Golf revealed its new Vapor Speed irons, part of the Vapor iron family, at an event in New York City. Created at The Oven with Nike Golf athlete insights driving the development of the long irons, Nike Golf club engineers crafted the Vapor Speed irons to deliver exactly what the name entails: pure power.

Like the Vapor Pro and Vapor Pro Combo irons, Nike Golf’s Vapor Speed irons feature innovative Modern Muscle design. Modern Muscle is defined by balanced weighting for perfected precision and power. The Vapor Speed irons design moves the center of gravity lower, deeper, and more towards the center of the face for faster ball speed and long, consistent distance. Ultra-thin NexCOR club faces and lighter, half-inch longer shafts, further amplify ball speed for incredible distance.

“The Vapor Speed irons are for the golf athlete who wants maximum distance and forgiveness throughout the set,” said Nate Radcliffe, Nike Golf’s Director of Engineering. “This is the longest distance iron that we have ever created. If you want to hit it long and straight, this is the iron that fits that profile.”
The Vapor Speed long irons (2-7) are built with a hollow, metalwood-inspired construction that features Nike’s new FlyBeam technology.

“FlyBeam technology in the cavity of our hollow long irons allow for thinner wall thicknesses while stiffening the chassis,” said Matt Daraskavich, Nike Golf’s Sr. Innovation Manager for Irons, Wedges and Putters. “These structures focus impact energy to the high speed NexCOR face resulting in the highest ball speed across the face that we have made to date.”

For the first time, Nike Golf club engineers incorporated proprietary lightweight RZN material – a modified version of the material found in the high energy core of Nike Golf’s line of RZN golf balls – in the cavity of the Vapor Speed short irons, 8 through sand wedge. This delivers Tour-inspired feel and sound with added stability.

Moderate sole widths with a beveled leading edge make it easier to hit through the turf, while precision-machined X3X grooves deliver spin control and shot-to-shot consistency.

Progressive face heights, and larger blade profiles merge with a sleek, satin chrome finish for a clean, traditional look at address.

The Vapor Speed irons will be available on Nike.com and at select retailers October 31, 2014.

Nike Golf Vapor Hybrids Available January 30, 2015

FY15_Vapor_Flex_Hybrid_FACE_RGB_34237Nike Golf Introduces New Vapor Hybrids with a Reengineered Chassis and Powerful Compression Channel

- The Vapor Flex and Vapor Speed hybrids create more distance with better launch conditions –

Nike Golf’s visually bold and functionally refined Vapor design has now extended to hybrid clubs. Completing Nike Golf’s new Vapor line of woods are the new Vapor Flex and Vapor Speed Hybrids, each highlighted by an eye-catching flash of volt in the cavity back and Compression Channel.

The new Vapor Flex hybrids feature FlexLoft 2, a lower center of gravity, and lower, straighter leading edges based upon athlete feedback.  A FlyBeam-reinforced Covert Cavity Back directs impact energy to the reengineered compression channel for increased ball speed across the face.

The engineering team at The Oven reshaped the Vapor Flex hybrid chassis to allow for more consistent impact and improved launch conditions.

“The Vapor Flex hybrids were engineered for speed, versatility, and forgiveness as demanded by our athletes,” said Nate Radcliffe, Director of Engineering for Nike Golf.  “Leading edges are straighter and tighter to the turf while a lighter FlexLoft 2 and sloped crown has significantly lowered center of gravity to produce improved launch conditions.”

By adjusting the FlexLoft 2 mechanism in the Vapor Flex hybrids, golf athletes can tune loft and face angle to optimize distance and shot shape during the fitting process. The new, improved system is five grams (30%) lighter without compromising function. The redistribution of mass creates more stability, better launch conditions and faster swing speeds. Another benefit of FlexLoft 2 is its forward and backward compatibility. Golfers with previous generations of Covert can use shafts with the original adaptor in the new head or vice versa.

The Vapor Speed hybrids feature a unique design that engineers at The Oven call “Linear Progression.” The longer hybrids feature a larger body and shallower face and progress to a sleek body and deep face on the short hybrids. This progression allows for more forgiveness and speed on long hybrids, while yielding shot-making accuracy and workability on shorter hybrids.

“The Vapor Speed hybrids are engineered for speed, increased trajectory and forgiveness,” said Radcliffe.  “Athletes looking to maximize and control trajectory from a variety of lies will benefit from the powerful combination of these signature technologies.”

To achieve increased speed and optimal launch conditions across the face, all Vapor hybrids feature Nike’s FlyBeam reinforced cavity back with a reengineered Compression Channel. The combination stiffens the Covert Cavity in the back of the club, while accentuating the spring-like effect across the face to return energy to the golf ball.

Nike Golf Vapor Flex Driver Available January 30, 2015

Nike Golf’s Vapor Flex Driver: Precision Tuned Distance Driven by the RZN Weight Management System

-New FlexFlight adjustability system helps to optimize launch conditions -

Distance for every golf swing – that’s what Nike Golf engineers set out to deliver with the brand’s new Vapor drivers: the Vapor Pro, Vapor Speed, and now the Vapor Flex.

The Vapor Flex, Nike’s pinnacle driver, features the same three key technologies found in the Vapor Pro and Vapor Speed drivers:

·      Nike’s FlyBeams,which stiffen the cavity back of the club.

·      A re-engineered Compression Channel that accentuates the spring-like effect across the face to return energy to the golf ball.

·      FlexLoft 2, whichallows the golf athlete the functionality of five lofts and three face angles within 15 different settings.

All of these technologies were developed to drive more energy to the golf ball for more distance, no matter the swing.

But Nike didn’t stop there with the Vapor Flex driver. While the Vapor Pro and Vapor Speed drivers each provide specific launch and spin characteristics, Nike Golf engineers believes there’s one more important step to ensure the golf athlete achieves their optimal launch conditions. With that goal in mind, the Nike engineers created the FlexFlight adjustability system.

FlexFlight features a RZN tube with a high-density weight on one end, called the FlightPod, which is located in the cavity of the club. By flipping the Flightpod, golfers can actively move the center of gravity of the Vapor Flex driver to further optimize their launch conditions.

With FlexFlight, golfers can manipulate the center of gravity from low and forward to low and back by adjusting the pod in quarter turns with the same wrench used to operate the FlexLoft 2.  Utilizing the FlexFlight system impacts launch angle, spin rate, forgiveness (increased inthe “mid” setting) and workability (enhanced in the “low” setting).

“Often times in the fitting process, there’s an opportunity for a final adjustment to develop the shot shape and ball flight the athlete is looking for,” said Nate Radcliffe, Director of Engineering for Nike Golf. “That’s how FlexFlight can help. With a simple quarter turn, we can adjust the mass of the FlexFlight module forward and backward within the club to change the trajectory and shot shape for the athlete. In doing so, we are seeing that a two-plus millimeter shift will change launch angle up to a degree – and it gives us that fine-tuning change inspin of about 300 rpm. As the last step in the fitting process, that can be the difference between the athlete being comfortable with the fitting and really being able to compete with it on the golf course.”

The FlexFlight system is simple and easy to use. The 15-gram RZN Flightpod, inserts into the back of the driver. Using the same Flexloft wrench, a simple quarter turn rotation and audible click will lock or unlock the pod.  When unlocked, the Flightpod can be removed, reversed and locked back into the cavity.

“The power of RZN is that it allows us to remove and relocate mass within a club head.” said Radcliffe.

Nike Golf uses RZN technology as a valuable weight management component, and the technology is also featured in Nike’s new Vapor irons and RZN golf balls.

The Vapor Flex driver will be available on Jan. 30, 2015.

Nike Golf Vapor Speed Driver Available January 30, 2015

Nike Golf’s Vapor Speed Driver: Higher Launch Angle. Lower Spin. Pure Distance

- Nike Golf’s largest and most stable chassis in the new Vapor driver franchise -

Volt just got bigger in Nike Golf’s new Vapor Franchise of drivers.

Fresh out of The Oven, Nike’s Vapor Speed driver has the largest and most stable chassis of the new Vapor drivers. Black on the crown with the distinctive volt in the cavity back and Compression Channel, the Vapor Speed driver promotes a higher launch angle with lower spin.

“We’ve reengineered the chassis of the Vapor Speed by sloping the crown more from face to the back and creating a deeper face,” said Nate Radcliffe, Director of Engineering for Nike Golf. “This moves the center of gravity projection toward the center of the face and significantly reduces spin to launch ratio versus the Covert 2.0.”

Like the recently released Vapor Pro driver, the Vapor Speed driver blends three key technologies: Nike’s new FlyBeam-reinforced Covert Cavity Back design, a re-engineered Compression Channel and FlexLoft 2. All of these are vital to the golf athlete driven to maximize distance and consistency within his or her desired flight window.

“We added FlyBeams to the Covert Cavity Back to drive frequency-tuned compliance into the Compression Channel,” said Radcliffe. “The new channel enhances the trampoline effect observed on the NexCOR face with a springboard design that accentuates ball speed on hits struck across the entire face. The end result is better sound, feel, consistency and distance.”

FlexLoft 2 allows the golf athlete the functionality of five lofts and three face angles within 15 different settings. The new, improved system is five grams (30 percent) lighter without compromising function. The redistribution of mass creates more stability, better launch conditions and faster swing speeds. Another benefit of FlexLoft 2 is its forward and backward compatibility. Golfers with previous generations of Covert can use shafts with the original adaptor in the new head or vice versa.

The Vapor Speed driver will be available on Jan. 30, 2015.

Nike’s Hao Tong Li Gets Second Win in Three Weeks with Vapor Pro Driver

Li wins Nashan Masters

China’s Hao Tong Li and Nike Vapor Pro Driver: A Winning Combination

- Nike athlete Li wins second professional title in three weeks with new Vapor Pro driver -

It has proven to be love at first sight. Just four weeks ago Nike athlete Hao Tong Li tested the new Vapor Pro driver at The Oven and immediately put it in his bag. Since then, he has won two tournaments in the span of three weeks.

He won his first professional title with it on the PGA Tour China Series three weeks ago. Last week, Li claimed his second professional victory with the same distinctive volt driver at the Nanshan China Masters on the One Asia Tour, becoming the youngest winner on the Tour at the age of 19.

The Vapor Pro driver blends three key technologies: Nike’s new FlyBeam reinforced Covert Cavity Back design, a re-engineered Compression Channel, and FlexLoft 2. All of these are vital to the golf athlete in achieving the ultimate in hitting their window of distance, speed and launch conditions.

The FlyBeam construction stiffens the Covert Cavity in the back of the club, while the Compression Channel, with variable compliance, accentuates the spring-like effect across the face. Cohesively, the two work together to focus, store, and return impact energy to the golf ball for shots struck at all points on the face.

Li played with 14 Nike clubs in his bag, including the new Vapor Speed 3-wood (15 degree), and the Nike RZN Black ball. On the body, Li sported apparel from Nike Golf’s Performance Collection and the Lunar Waverly shoe.
