On Hits the Trail
Innovation for getting up the mountain...fast.
Swiss performance brand On has made a big splash in the running market since its introduction in 2010 and the brand is continuing to ramp up its innovative offerings heading into Fall 2019 and beyond.
Two standout trail offerings from On for the upcoming season include a shoe built for trail racing and one for speed hiking.
The On Cloudventure Peak trail running shoe is built for runners looking for a lightweight trail competition shoe with downhill cushioning. It features the “aggressive bite” of a Missiongrip outsole, along with a high-torsion Speedboard and shock-absorbing cloud heels. A breathable, durable stretch mesh upper and a sock-like construction ensures precision fit and comfort. Elastic taping wraps the forefoot for extra support without additional laces. On the outsole, multidirectional lugs are positioned to support a natural push-off motion, while five forefoot cloud pods provide forefoot cushioning and double as grip studs on softer ground.
The Cloudrock Waterproof from On is a speed hiking shoe designed for those looking to cover rough terrain quickly in all conditions. The upper is waterproof and breathable and has a high collar to protect the ankle from rough ground and “wild weather.” The Speedboard construction supports stability as well as forward motion. The outsole features a Missiongrip rubber overlay for grip and traction and Zero-Gravity Clouds provide cushioning and energy return for long-distance comfort.
