DESIGN FROM THE INSIDE OUT

Nike’s engineering and sports research teams worked with their pro athletes and identified the opportunity to move the iron’s center of gravity to the center of the clubface, which provides more balanced strikes. The collaborative design challenge was to bring this innovation to the exterior of the design, and to visually connote the accuracy of the club’s performance. Through dozens of iterations and refinement, the innovative “Modern Muscle” was born.
