Running in comfort with support used to mean sacrificing speed. Then we created the original Cloudace, to prove that high-impact runners didn’t have to compromise. Now we’ve made it better, tuning up our most technically-advanced running shoe, to inject even more comfort, protection and performance into your road miles. When you need support and speed over longer distances, there’s a new Ace in the pack.
We approached the Cloudace with an ambitious goal: to create the ultimate support shoe. No compromises on stability, cushioning, comfort or speed. A versatile shoe to meet the needs of the most demanding runner on their long runs.
With the refined second-generation Cloudace, we kept the same recipe but with new ingredients – like our new Helion™ superfoam – we’ve taken the experience to the next level.
“This shoe showcases the very best for all the benefits you want in a running shoe,” says Edouard Coyon, Head of Footwear Product Management at On. “That starts with being protected, cushioned and comfortable with the right amount of support. But we also created a shoe that’s propulsive, dynamic and fun to run in.”
“From that first step-in, right up to when you’re deep into your long-distance runs. This is a shoe that won’t let you down.”
Much of the Cloudace’s cleverness is built into our unique midsole. We combined three ground-breaking sole technologies – Helion™ superfoam, Rebound Rubber CloudTec® and our Pebax Speedboard® – to provide the perfect balance of cushioning and energy return, support and speed.
Double layers of Helion™ superfoam and larger Clouds in the heel guarantee soft landings with impact protection for long-distance comfort.
In the forefoot, more dynamic Rebound Rubber Clouds produce a powerful push-off and a responsive ride for a go-faster feel.
The Speedboard® stabilizes each phase of the rolling motion from the foot down, propelling you forward, through to an explosive take-off. A re-engineered rubber overlay on the outsole adds even more traction for toe off and unshakeable grip, even on tight turns.
On’s Speedboard® technology is designed to improve your running efficiency, reduce energy-output and boost speed. The Cloudace’s tailored Speedboard® design has been re-engineered to offer even better energy return while still maintaining a smooth and stable ride.
“We added a wider Speedboard® that works with our unique CloudTec® construction, to provide a wider platform to land on,” says Edouard. “This integrated guidance creates a smooth transition and a natural take-off. It also delivers great energy return in a shoe that’s supportive even at speed.”
