On's Speedboard in the outsole

The shoe features the ‘Speedboard’ in its outsole. According to On, the Speedboard consists of four layers and each layer serves a different purpose for the runner.

The first layer enhances the shoe’s flexibility for a better landing; the second layer evenly distributes the effect of impact forces over the whole surface area; the third layer avoids the damage due to torsion, but does not limit the foot movements; and the fourth layer, the transversal grid, promotes natural gait for the runner respectively.

Together, these layers deliver a combination of unparalleled comfort, excellent flexibility, and remarkable adaptability. The lightweight yet well-cushioned Pebax platform provides a plush yet responsive ride to the runners.

The Low Abrasion rubber pads that are placed strategically in high impact zones prevent the risk of injury to the runner’s foot by ensuring the needed protection against the concentrated loads and by very increasing the shoe’s durability.

Reduced impact on harsh pavements with On Cloudflash midsoles

The Cloudtec Elements in the midsole are tiny fully compressed ball-like structures which help in a solid push off the ground, thereby giving the much desired ‘springy’ feel in the midsole and reducing the impact of harsh pavements which road runners like to run upon.

These elements add bounce to every step of the ride and distribute the impact forces evenly during the landing phase. The CloudTec is also integrated into the midsole of the On Cloud shoes and other running shoes from ON.

Cool and dry running with the On Cloudflash upper

The Nanomesh technology results in an effectively thin upper capable of shredding moisture efficiently and maintaining a comfortably cool and dry environment inside the shoe.

On Cloudflash mesh

The Exoskeleton, a lightweight metatarsal-specific design, adds structure to the upper to prevent its bulking and increases security for the runner’s foot.

On Cloudflash lace

The On Cloudflash houses a Heel Cap in its rear region, which keeps the heel locked down in its proper position, thereby providing the snug fit at any point or speed during the run.
