Deft Gloves Product Test:
When we got the chance to do a full prodouct test on the new Colab Deft Family Gloves we were stoked! We got 4 riders together and all rode in a pair of the DC and the Skull Candy colab model Deft gloves for the day. 2 pairs came straight out of the pack onto fresh virgin Deft hands, and well, Adam and Jon already had a set of Deft’s each so they just wore them and were biased from the start!
Rider: Joe Snazel – Gloves: Deft Family white-blue Skull Candy Artisan Glove
Rider: Jon Richie – Gloves: Deft Family yellow-purple Brush Catalyst 2 glove
Rider: Stu Macey – Gloves: Deft Family white-blue DC Catalyst 2 glove
Rider: Adam Simpson Gloves: Deft Family yellow-blue DC Catalyst 3 glove
The test center:
At the end of the session we all gave the gloves marks out of 10 for the four main attributes you look for in an FMX glove.
Stu – ” Deft gloves are the way forward”
Joe – ” They just stay in the right place all day – Loved having no strap”
Adam – ” I don’t think I’ll ride in a different glove again”
John – ” Yeah, they rule”
Bottom line – Everyone loved riding in the gloves. The low profile, low weight, mininilistic style gives these gloves a very different feel to your average moto x race glove. After the session Joe yelled out ” How much do you want for these then? ” There was one small blister on Stu’s thumb at the end of the day, but we all agreed that this was a small price to pay.
Big up to Deft for making the best FMX gloves out there and to Freestylextreme for hooking us up with the gloves to test.
