On Cloudflow er en sko som mange triatleter allerede har taget til sig
En af disse er Tim Don som netop har vundet Ironman Brazil og ikke bare vundet, men dette på en måde, hvor det hidtige rekord blev justeret med mere end 4 minutter. Tim Don har været prof triatlet siden 1997, og er således en erfaren herre på distancen, som har prøvet lidt af hvert. Der ligger således også nogle erfaringer bag valget af sko, som næppe er nogen tilfældighed. Tim Don vælger On Cloudflow som sin konkurrence sko – Cloudflow som Tim Don nu har sat verdensrekord med.
“I love my Cloudflow”, explains the new Ironman World Record Holder. “When you get off a hard bike it’s important to put a shoe on you just know is fast and works for you and that’s the Cloudflow for me. Especially in the closing stages when you are pushing the limit and your form is going – it just gives me confidence. I bloody love them.”
Crashing the Ironman World record by trusting Swiss technolgy
Four time ITU World Champion of triathlon and duathlon, Tim Don, shows that hard work and passion can lead someone to exceed even their own expectations.
Great Britian’s Tim Don did not set out planning on breaking the Ironman world record in Brazil. Despite this, he blew away the previous record of 7:44:29 by over four minutes with a time of 7:40:23.
“At about the 5km mark, Frank (trainer) shouted to me ‘you can get the record if you run a 2.48’ and I was like ‘what record?` When he said the world record I nearly fellow over”, elaborates Tim after the race. When an athlete puts so much effort and energy into his training, he needs a shoe that will see him through all the ups and down. It must complement all the hard work and passion with thoughtful engineering and an understanding of what a runner needs.
For Tim, he chooses to put his faith in the Cloudflow, from the Swiss Running Shoe Brand On. The Cloudflow is all about responsiveness, and moving in sync with the runner’s stride. Thoughtful engineering and a runner’s perspective are imbued into every part of the shoe, with a dedicated team led by Ex-Duathlon World-Champion and six-time Ironman winner Olivier Bernhard.
