The Grip-Rubber profile of the Cloudventure performs in the most demanding conditions. Its sole is micro-engineered with four distinct levels of grip, so you’re in control on the trail, and the street.
The Cloudventure family is built with an ingenious 2-layer upper. It combines a highly comfortable and supportive inner layer with a breathable, light outer layer that is also treated with a durable water repellent (DWR) coating.
Every aspect of the Cloudventure has been engineered with the ultimate trail running shoes in mind – right down to the toe-caps. Fused with rubber and engineered mesh, it provides protection for the toes while still remaining lightweight and flexible.
Runners looking for a lightweight trail shoe with full cushioning protection.

“No other trail shoe has the capability to make you feel comfortable, free and confident to tackle what “Mother Nature” throws at you” - Ben Allen, XTERRA world champion
“Growing up in the Swiss Alps, we learned a thing or two about running in the mountains, which is why the Cloudventure offers so many innovative features for trail running” - Olivier Bernhard, On Co-Founder and six-time Ironman Champion.
Light and fast that you can reach the peak in time to watch the sunrise. Reliable grip for when a thunderstorm catches you by surprise. And clever cushioning to save your legs when you are flying back down to reach the valley before it gets dark. The Cloudventure.
I was pleasantly surprised at how soft and smooth the Ventures were. I expected them to feel a little bulky and have issues with debris getting stuck in the pods on the bottom, but they are surprisingly nimble and nothing has gotten stuck yet. My only complaint with a lot of On's shoes is that on softer surfaces the pods are not quite as peppy. The Ventures struggle a little on looser surfaces (cinder and sand), but have been solid on technical terrain and rolling grassy trails.
Great shoes.... You can read a full very positive review (in French) here: http://nature-humaine.ca/2016/10/on-cloudventure/
I've never been a runner but have entered the Great North Run and am 2/3rds through a 12 week training programme to take me from a 10min jogger to a half marathon runner. I bought a pair of Cloudsurfer's on day one and they've been amazing. No rubbing, fit like a glove and cushion my 44yr old knees!
My fitness and ability have steadily increased, I live in the middle of the North Peninnes, beautiful hills that I just needed to get into so I bought a pair of Cloudventure's. They arrived this week and I took them out on their maiden run, my first ever 10km run, up and over the fell to Stoodley Pike - the highest local landmark.
The shoes supported my run both up and down the steep hill sides. Their grip on the ever changing terrain superb. Nothing got stuck in the 'clouds'. Their first wear and just so comfortable, and on my longest run ever. I've nothing to compare them to as have never been a runner so never worn anything else, but they are marvellous.
I can train on the hills in my Cloudventure's, and run in the valleys in my Cloudsurfer's. A perfect pair of shoes.
