Two unique athletes bound by style, skill, work ethic, and blood, Bas and Tom van Steenbergen have quickly created a global following and their impact on the sport has only begun. Take a look at the definition of style in the latest Deity edit “Thicker Than Water”!

Filmed/Edited by Virtu Media with images by Robb Thompson Photography

From historic front flips to the best style in the game, the van Steenbergen’s career with Deity started years ago with a contest photo submission by Bas that quickly caught the eye of Deity.

bigquotesThis one image of Bas captured exactly what we loved about riding and we immediately fell in love with his style. At that point, they had filmed one edit, had recently started riding mountain bikes, and their talent was widely apparent to us. So, we tracked Bas down and offered him a spot on our Fresh Blood Grassroots program only to find out that his brother was just as nasty on a bike! We love supporting up and coming talent, but we had no idea that both Bas and Tom would become two of our favourite riders ever and a key part of the future of Deity.

I will never forget the first time I saw Tom ride a downhill bike. Tom is not just a slopestyle athlete, he is insanely fast on a bike and could be a competitive DH racer if he wanted to. During that period, both Bas and Tom were incredibly appreciative to be on the Grassroots team, they were humble, active with our company, and within 3 months we were bumping them up into our Pro program. We have not looked back since and we will always have their back.

With a pedigree born from BMX racing and motocross, the van Steenbergen family tree is comprised of numerous two wheel talent that has naturally influenced their outlook on bikes and cultivated a family support system that has helped guide them into a growing career.

bigquotesHonestly, their style on a bike is phenomenal and easily some of our favourite in the sport, but we really respect the way they carry themselves off the bike. I have always said that it is not just skill that captures our eye, it is the way a person carries themselves day to day that sets them apart. They have always been grateful, thankful, involved, and a proper representation of our company.

We are excited to have signed both Bas and Tom to the Deity Pro team again for 2015, 2016, and we have big plans in store for both of them. They are dynamic riders on two different paths, but to be a part of their support system has truly been an honour and we are excited to be able to do more and more for them.

They are family to us and if you have ever heard me speak about them...you would quickly realize that we are some of their biggest fans. Just wait until you see what they do in this sport. They have been turning heads, but it is only the beginning!

 Polite euphemism to describe those loose mofokers if you ask me.
  • 14 1
 Yes maybe, so feminine of me. Next time I will do them justice by writing something that sounds like it came straight from my groin. As soon as you say that it's sick and gnarly how those mofos are sendin it, your balls seem almost as big as theirs - I get the game buddy. Now tell me, do I seem polite? Big Grin

 Ok ok I can't take it anymore! My mother used to leave me at my uncle's place and he was dressing me up as a girl or puddle, then showing to cousins to be ridiculed. When father learned about that he went insane and locked me in a latrine without windows for three weeks on toilet water and dry bread because in his opinion I did not stand up for myself to them. Then next Christmas my mom learned about that and threw me to the lake in a bag with bricks. She emerged me back and committed suicide. I am traumatized and freeride is my lord, my saviour

 They are Specialized CEOs i suppose?
  • 3 1
 No, but There is little doubt that Specialized is a network of evil, so called Al-Demoeda and the true identity of their actual leader using aliases Moriarty, Red John or Sandler remains a mystery. My uncle was caught masterbating to honey boo boo, and sentenced to lethal injection last summer in Texas. I think I forgave him after all those years, Nobody deserves such treatment. I guess we can leave it there

 @jhuckins - I will be buying one soon, but not sure if online shop is a good place to look for. I need one with super silent flush mode, so that night escapades to the loo, caused by deficiencies of my prostate and sphincter don't wake up my kids.
@cherouvim - it is called "sleep deprivation" but remember that drugs are only amplifiers of who you really are inside. They are keys to the inner world. I was writing and drawing some sick stuff in the high school...
