The all-new Cloudflyer brings extra cushioning and stability to your run. Its patented CloudTec® system is engineered with Zero-Gravity foam so the shoes weigh in at less than 300 grams (10.6 oz). It’s ultra light, yet incredibly stable and supremely cushioned. Welcome to our frequent flyer program.
The Cloudflyer lets you run the way you are meant to run, and that means a short and sweet touch-down, a natural transition, and a stable platform. Get ready for incredibly soft landings and explosive take-offs. With the Cloudflyer, On is taking on gravity and setting you free. Long runs have never felt so short.
The "Cloud" elements come with a predefined collapsing line supporting the forward momentum and the horizontal movement. Extended low abrasion rubber pads at impact zones provide durability.
Compared to the Cloud, the Cloudflyer offers a wider surface area. The wider platform provides a stable stance and gives you secure comfort on long distance runs.
I purchased a pair as my current running shoes were giving me calf problems. I debated between these and a pair of Hokas. I went for the cloudflyers as they were similar to what I am used to and so glad I did. I went for a 5 mile run to test them out and no calf niggles at all. I also felt I had a lot more pace in my stride.
I have been running for over 10 years and tried most brands of running shoe to find that perfect one. I have now found it! The Cloudflyer is perfect for me in every way I can train & race in these shoes I no longer have issues with blisters or sore feet after long runs. I go into races with so much more confidence now. Great show I can't recommend enough.
I've just hit 200 miles in my Cloudflyers and I still absolutely love them. These are my first pair of Ons and previously I had run 300 miles in a pair of Adidas Supernovas with no issue so was unsure whether to change. I definitely made the right decision to switch as again, I have had no issues and I still remember feeling the difference in weight when I took them out of my first run. They are so light it almost feels like you are running barefoot.
They don't look like they will be very grippy from the pictures but I've had no issues running on roads, compacted trails and the odd off road diversion (Canal towpaths/farmers fields etc). I've run everything from 5k to half marathon distance in them and can't fault them.
The only thing I would change is the price but when I come to replace my current Cloudflyers, I doubt i'll choose anything else.
