Spring Running Essentials

On-Running CloudSwift

The second generation of the On Cloudswift delivers enhanced cushioning, grip and rocker shape to the city streets in a uniquely Swiss silhouette—minimal, functional and all about the details. Evolved tech from the original Cloudswift meets athlete insights for a shoe that responds to the demands of running on the road. Improved forefoot and heel cushioning combine On’s signature CloudTec technology with temperature resistant Helion superfoam to create a barrier between you and the road. A polypropylene Speedboard and pronounced rocker shape transfers energy into the next stride while rubber grips provide traction and security. In step with On’s commitment to minimising materials, a 100% recycled mesh connects an integrated tongue and upper for a sock-like fit and supportive hold throughout your run. These quite frankly are the best running shoes we’ve tried to date, and thats saying a lot. £135.00, On-running.com

On-Running Weather Vest

Let’s be honest the main problem all runners have in the spring time in the UK is the “what do I wear?” question. The sun may be shining but you can guarantee it’s not warm enough for t-shirt and shorts alone. Thats where On’s Weather Vest comes in. This ultra lightweight, waterproof vest offers protection without any restriction to the wearer, from wind and rain. Water-repellant coating on the front means you’re always ready for rain, while waterproof-zippered pockets keep your valuables secure and dry. Reflective elements come to light after dark to help you stay seen and safe. Its unstoppable featherweight Japanese stretch fabrics that combine function with perfect form mean you really don’t feel like you’ve got anything. A perfect harmony of design meets performance, this is the only jacket runners will need this spring. £120.00, On-running.com

On-Running Performance Long-Tee

We all hate tops that stick to you when you run, heavy, damp, soaking up all the sweat. Well thats why you need On’s Performance Long-Tee. The Long-T is built to function in changing conditions, blending breathability with warmth, it keeps your body temperature in a comfort zone even on the longest and most uncomfortable runs. This adaptive quality makes it ideal for the stop-start training or in unreliable weather. Seams are tactically positioned to reduce irritation and distractions to an absolute minimum. Again, just like the Weather Vest, the Performance Tee uses the brands fast drying, incredibly lightweight Japanese knit fabric, effectively wicking moisture away from the skin, keeping you warm in the cold and lets you breath when it’s hot. A special antibacterial treatment is also integrated into the yarn for enhanced freshness. £70.00, On-running.com

On-Running Hybrid Shorts

To finish off your lightweight attire you’re going to need some shorts and the On Hybrid shorts can do it all. Now in their second generation, these 2-in-1 shorts are On-fan must-have. Wear each layer individually or combine them for twice the performance or if its a little too chilly at 6am for shorts you can also attach the outer shorts over other items like the brands Tights Long too. The outer shorts are engineered for lightweight and airy movement that dry quickly. The snug inner tights have an updated fit to add gentle support while staying in place on the move. Another added bonus, you get the versatile pockets on the outer layer that you’d expect and then on the inner tight you also get hidden pockets to keep your phone and valuables safe and secure.
