Shock attenuation and energy return

The external pad of the On Cloud Dip is primarily made of CloudTec elements, marshmallow-like nodes that offer targeted cushioning and support throughout the different phases of the gait cycle.

Each isolated piece offers shock attenuation and energy return when they’re activated with each step.

Cloud Dip delivers running efficiency 

This technology is a staple in many of On Running’s products, including the iterations like the Cloudflow and the original Cloud.

Rubber protects the ends of each CloudTec element.

Good traction and protection

The durable nature of this protective layer averts damage from surface contact and continued use.

Also, traction is a trait that can be appreciated because of the presence of the rubber.

Flexible platform

Deep flex grooves horizontally and vertically line the outsole. These deep trenches are meant to make the platform as flexible as possible, thus permitting the natural way the foot goes through the gait cycle.

Zero-Gravity is a foam technology that is used for the cushioning unit on which the foot relaxes.

Responsive liftoffs and mitigated landings

This full-length piece has a lightweight structure that aims to prevent the feeling of being encumbered. It also offers responsive liftoffs and mitigated landings.

A Speedboard is placed on top of the main cushioning piece. This accouterment helps in the attainment of an energized push-off by bending during the preparation phase then springing back into its original shape when the action is rendered.

Snug coverage

The upper unit of the On Cloud Dip is made of a canvas that has a ballistic-weave design.

Durability and full support are the tenets of this configuration, and it allows the foot to experience a snug coverage that is also warm enough for cool weather.

On Cloud Dip is a waterproof and durable shoe

The bottom part of the canvas upper has been dipped in rubber to make it waterproof. This element is also meant to heighten durability and resistance to abrasive contact with sharp objects and surfaces.

On Cloud Dip lacing system

A speed lacing system graces the instep. Round yet thin cords snake through discreet eyelets. They are short yet stretchy, allowing for quick adjustments without having to loop-and-tie the end portions.
