Whether you're trucking up technical mountain trails, speeding down steep and slippery fells or rolling along the rise and fall of rocky coastal runs, the new Cloudventure helps you pick your path with pace and effortless precision.
Now in its third-generation, this performance-focused off-roader is fast, light and protective. It packs the tech and the traction to propel you to the summit, the cushioning to let you own the downhill and the comfort and response to cruise the valley floors.
And with up to 20% recycled content, the all-new Cloudventure doesn’t just take trail performance to the next level, it’s also designed to help runners leave a lighter environmental footprint on the planet.
“Our challenge with the third generation Cloudventure was to make an even better performance trail running shoe,” says Oliver Whitworth, Footwear Developer on the Cloudventure. “We wanted to create a shoe that delivered flexibility and freedom, a ride that kept runners connected to the ground underfoot but also provided enough cushioned comfort and support for the longer miles.”
If you want a lightweight – short to mid distance – trail running shoe that balances cushioned comfort, reliable protection and great ground feeling, this is it.
Fit for anything
We’ve transformed the uppers to offer even better protection in all conditions while keeping On’s trademark lightweight, breathable, comfortable long-lasting fit. We’ve replaced the double layer engineered mesh with two laminated materials that appear almost fused into a single upper layer that wraps the foot with a snug, protective and durable barrier against sand, dirt – and whatever else the trail chucks in your path.
“Rather than use the air mesh like previous generations, we closed the upper material to create something more like a Ripstop. It gives you all-over protection and helps prevent tears and punctures to the upper,” says Oliver.
We’ve boosted the lockdown foothold by adding unique, flexible wings to the tongue. These wrap the midfoot, holding it in place to add support and protection against unwanted foot movement and slippage inside the shoe.
On the outside, we’ve also added 360° lightweight TPU reinforcements as a buffer against knocks and bumps from rocks, roots and trail debris.
