Developed and tested in the Swiss Alps, no distance is off-limits for On’s Cloudultra trail shoe

On, the world’s fastest-growing brand in run specialty announces the Cloudultra, an all-new model Swiss-engineered to conquer the toughest terrains with maximum cushioning and support. Designed for ultramarathons, long trail runs and off-road training sessions, the Cloudultra combines On’s heritage with the latest in design and running technology.

“As a brand born in the Swiss Alps the mountains challenge us to create products that can withstand their demanding elements,” says On Co-founder Olivier Bernhard, “The Cloudultra delivers just that— the opportunity to explore your corner of the world in complete comfort.”

As runners can attest, long distances create foot swell; that’s why On developed a revolutionary solution called the FlipRelease. This new feature, premiering on the Cloudultra and located on the forefoot, relieves uncomfortable pressure with a simple flip of the small tool secured on the lacing.

“Built by athletes, we started On in 2010 to fill a need missing in the running industry,” says Bernhard, “We’re still looking for ways in which we can anticipate and innovate upon the needs of our worldwide community.”

Pulling inspiration from its road counterpart, the Cloudstratus, the Cloudultra features dual CloudTec® layers working in tandem to provide cushioning and long-term comfort. A connected midsole increases impact protection while a closed MissiongripTM outsole guarantees a rock-free ride. In addition to its adaptable sock-like construction for a precise fit, a perforated sandwich mesh upper provides increased breathability.

Crafted in collaboration with On’s elite athletes, the Cloudultra packs comfort and precision in a striking silhouette. In addition, the experts at ISPO, the largest international sporting goods trade fair, have tested and decided: The Cloudultra wins the ISPO Award 2021 in the segment trail running shoe. Born in the Swiss Alps, designed to explore the world

The Cloudultra is available online and at select retail partners worldwide.
