The Deux glove was born from two simple design ideals:
Create an intimate connection, feel and feedback between the athlete and their objective be it bag work, pad work, sparring or fight night.
Minimalist execution utilising only the best of everything not the most of everything.
This focus was used to create a superior product through simple honest design and construction. So, we removed rather than added and required more from each piece we utilised. Emphasis was placed on supporting hand position as it mechanically transitions through each technique. It resulted in a glove shape that has glimpses of Mexican styling, with enhancements that make it subtly unique and compact.
ORIGIN / MEANING
We pronounce it “Dukes” but spell it “Deux” meaning two in French. The play on both words to make a one that intimately describes the moment these gloves are called on, inspired by the following phrases:
The rhyming slang “get your dukes up” meaning “get into your fighting stance and defend yourself”
The French term “pas de deux” which can be loosely translated as “an intricate activity involving two parties”
Premium X Leather material
Specially developed synthesized leather prepared for gloves and protective equipment.
3D foam lining throughout the internal glove creates a fitted feel and promotes airflow.
Three piece, streamlined mould system
Compact design, provides feel and feedback
Confidence & Security

Movements emerge when inspired and driven people are drawn together in a powerful way to create something bigger than the sum of their individual parts. Onward was built on a rich history of perseverance with the prevailing nature to move forward.
