The Cloudsurfer introduces some exciting new technology to the world of running shoes. On uses Cloud technology to deliver a concept unlike anything else on the market today. The idea is simple- when running, one experiences both vertical and horizontal impact. Traditional running shoes absorb only vertical impact from striking the ground, while On’s cushioning “Cloud” circular rubber banded technology absorbs both vertical and horizontal shock from forward movement which cause muscle damage and pain.
Uniquely engineered mesh places breathability and support exactly where they’re needed on your foot. Knitted from one single layer to enhance the fit.
Second-layer sock construction brings ultimate in-shoe comfort. It adapts to your foot for a unique fit.
Traction and lightness
Newly developed arrow pattern provides outstanding grip and traction. The open Cloud construction saves weight to make the Cloudsurfer lighter than ever.
Visibility and comfort
Reflective heel strap allows for improved nighttime visibility along with providing additional heel support.
The Cloudsurfer is intended more of a lightweight trainer
Suitable for everyday training but geared more toward faster running or racing
How Cloud Technology Works:
CloudTec utilizes a simple, highly functional cushioning system- a piece of circular rubber which absorbs both vertical and horizontal impact forces from running. As the foot hits the ground with forward momentum, the CloudTec element folds back, effectively allowing the foot to glide to a softer halt. After landing, the element is compressed by the weight of the runner, locks together and is fully firm for the push-off.
CloudTec allows you to run light, fast, and pain free thanks to the cloud pods on the outsole. These pods absorb shock and provide cushioning when landing by compressing, and spring back for a firm pushoff. These clouds slow down impact forces rather than simply compress like other cushioning systems.
A new approach to stability- By activating your muscles, the Cloudsurfer enables you to stabilize and control your foot strike naturally without any added stability.
CloudTec intelligent cushioning technology allows for a minimalistic, lightweight construction along with a low heel to toe drop allowing you to be closer to the ground with excellent torsional flex in the midfoot.
