I'm looking for recommendations on lightest weight moto gloves available.

Must be:

  • light weight / minimalist
  • short cuff,
  • slip-on style
  • no closure

    Bonus:
  • Red/White/Blue

    I searched and found these, but I'm hoping for more recommendations.
  • Fly Media Glove
    TLD SE Gloves
    Novik T.E.C. Gloves

    Thanks

    Novik tec gloves are pretty sweet and thin, I’ve had mixed results with them holding up but otherwise love them

    I love my Fist Gloves, designed in Australia and part owned by Robbie Maddison as well. Super light weight, last forever and slip on as well. Overall fit is amazing. https://www.fisthandwear.com/

    They have some super cool designs as well.

    I'm glad I asked, thanks guys!

    I think I'm feeling Deft, 100%, and Novik in that order.

    Novik! I absolutely love them! I have wussy hands that blister easy
    and the Novik gloves have been keeping the blisters away.
    Plus, the price is so good that I got a few pair.

    Klim makes a really nice glove. They're not cheap though!

    Fox Airline. I'm still using my 360 Cauz ones from 2016. They are perfect.

    I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not too sure.

    Deft family is a really hyped up brand but honestly their gloves aren't that good. I prefer Fox airline or Fox flexair gloves. (Or the Shift equivalent)

    Glad this thread came up as those are the same requirements I have.

    I bought 5 pair of Alpinestars Dune gloves earlier this year. Holding up great so far.

    My boy has had all their youth pairs for years, with no signs of any issues. They get used and abused from riding, MTB and playing in the dirt with them on. They get ran through the wash with all his other gear and have held up fantastic.

    Deft Familys are definitely super comfortable. Only downside is that I have to buy new ones every 6 months.

    In 2010 I bought a few pairs of Deft as they were on sale at a local dealer. Haven’t bought another pair since.

    They hold up well. That isn't the problem. They were just designed with a little more of an oldschool approach compared to the Fox gloves. They're not bad, but it's also nothing special. Not worth the hype if you ask me. I would say if you're looking for lightweight and minimalist like the OP you should get Fox airline or flexair gloves.

    If minimalist is what you're most after then the TLD Ace are great (technically a bicycle glove), I use them for road riding but use something a little thicker for mx.
