''When i grew up ski racing there was one brand that was better than everyone else, but at that point we could not afford them so we had to buy second hand gloves. Now I have my own pro model from them! ...I am stoked to be working with such a killer team supplying me with the dream gloves!''
Jon Olsson's determination and natural talent in both freeride and alpine ski racing has made him one of the most well-known figures in skiing; as well as making him Hestra Gloves' best known brand ambassador. He remembers well when he got his first Hestra gloves, "I was ten years old and the model was RSL Comp. It felt so incredibly luxurious and I tried them on several times every day," says Olsson.
Since then, a lot has happened: with 10 X-games medals to his name, Olsson has become one of Sweden's best known and highly respected skiers. In 2014 Hestra launched the "Jon Olsson Pro Model", a short, supple leather glove with cowhide on the back of the hand and durable goatskin on palm. The glove has got Ergo Grip construction for optimal fit.
