Montreal, Quebec, September 7th – 8-time X-Games medalist Jon Olsson has once again signed with Kombi. Olsson, who has been with Kombi in Europe for 7 years, will be using Kombi gloves worldwide in 2008/09. He is excited to continue being part of the team. “My Kombi gloves are the one thing I hold onto the longest. I sometimes feel like a pair of gloves gives me good luck, and I hang onto them until they are destroyed, even if I have three new pairs at home.” Olsson comments from the road. “My favourite glove is the Kombi iRip.”
The Swedish superstar spends around 290 days on the road each year, filming and competing in the world’s most prestigious ski events. In 2005 he created the Jon Olsson Invitational which has evolved into the world’s premier newschool skiing event. In addition to leading the field in park skiing, Olsson has also been working towards qualifying for the Swedish national team with his sights set on the 2010 Olympics. A true all-around skier who continues to stay on top of the field after ten years, Olsson is a natural fit for the innovation that Kombi is known for.
