Markus Robèrt is a Swedish multi-extreme-sports-athlete. At present he is focussing mainly on Redbull kite- and snow kite races. He placed himself third in the TT Class of the 2015 Redbull COAST 2 COAST race, where he competed with 600 participants in the toughest kitesurfing marathon in the world.
Besides kiting Markus is a dedicated speedrider/speedflyer.
Markus joined the XION team just after a kite-loop incident which resulted in a broken rib.
"I have a long track record of broken bones during my career. Last two years I have suffered four broken ribs and one collar bone fracture so it will definitely be interesting to see if Xion protection gear could help me break this trend. I´m truly impressed of Xion, which after considerable research, I believe produces the best protection gear available on the market. I´ll definitely do my best to expose Xion gear to the toughest conditions possible"
