The Deft Family is headed up by none other than Californian FMX legend Nate Adams. Nate runs the company with Logan Darien and Brian Foster. This new motocross glove brand has quickly established itself firmly within the world of FMX – with an ever growing team of sick riders, a fresh look and a dope product ( The gloves truly rule )- Deft Family is set to go from strength to strength!

A lot of R&D goes into these gloves, and Deft is definitely a legit rider run brand. Having facilities like Nate Adams’ means at Deft HQ, the team are able to constantly product test on one of the best FMX courses in the world, and then go over thoughts straight away in the office after the session to tweak certain areas of the gloves until they are spot on. The gloves themselves are super light weight, and some of the lowest profile gloves on the market. The deigns and colourways are all really cool and orgional, and there are some nice collabs with DC and Skull Candy out there too. These are the comfiest gloves we’ve tried for sure, straight out of the packet – everyone at Loko Magazine are rocking Deft gloves right now!
