Vapor Speed Driver £249.99
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.
And like the 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 your desired flight window.
FlexLoft 2 allows 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 31 January 2015

Vapor Flex Driver £349.99
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, allows the functionality of five lofts and three face angles within 15 different settings
These technologies were developed to drive more energy to the golf ball for more distance, no matter the swing.
While the Vapor Pro and Vapor Speed drivers each provide specific launch and spin characteristics, in addition to deliver your optimal launch condition, Nike 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 centre of gravity of the Vapor Flex driver to further optimise launch conditions.
With FlexFlight, you can manipulate the centre 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 inthe “low” setting).
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.
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.
