On Running release Cloudswift – with brand new Helion™ superfoam

On Running announces new cushioning innovation: Helion™ superfoam

Available from today in the Cloudswift shoe

The now familiar ‘clouds’ remain, but in releasing a brand new shoe today – the Cloudswift – On Running (www.on-running.com), they are also bringing to the market their first shoe to feature Helion™, an On developed superfoam, “delivering durability and rebound at a previously impossible level”.

Here is the official line – we’ll be getting our hands on a pair to test soon.


Swiss sports brand On develops a new cushioning innovation – the specially developed Helion foam

For nine years, Swiss sports brand On has inspired the running scene with its unique CloudTec® technology. Now, the company announces its latest industry-disrupting innovation with the launch of the Cloudswift performance running shoe, the first shoe to feature On’s new Helion™ superfoam.

The Helion™ foam combines properties other foams can’t, delivering durability and rebound at a previously impossible level. The unique new On Helion™ foam is formed of a special structure fusing stable, hard elements and softer, elastic segments. This enables greater durability without adding weight and more rebound without sacrificing cushioning. Thanks to its temperature resistance capability, the cushioning stays premium – no matter if it’s cold or warm outside. Its enduring energy-return properties offer protection from the road and performance for the run.

“‘No compromises’ was the mantra when we set out to create this new superfoam,” explains Olivier Bernhard, On Co Founder and multiple Ironman champion. “As a runner, you need your shoe to perform at its best so you can too. You won’t say yes to second best.

“Since no other foam was able to offer what we wanted, we decided to build our own. Helion™ is a lighter, softer, and more agile foam for a ride that feels more alive every step of the run.”

The all-new Cloudswift is made for urban runners who like to keep their shoes light and swift yet still have superior cushioning and road protection. While newly shaped Cloud elements on the sole collapse diagonally to increase horizontal cushioning, durable rubber reinforcements provide enhanced traction. In the forefoot, Cloud elements connect at the central channel for a more directional push-off without energy loss.
