What do you get when a death defyinglegend (Robbie Maddison), an industry heavyweight (Jesse Pidgeon) and a man with a big idea (Sam Moore) cross paths? You get Fist Handwear – a premium, stylish and high impact range of protective handwear with designs to blow your mind (but not your budget).
It all started with Sam Moore’s passion to build the best version of a ‘glove only’ company that would specialise in a field that is sometimes overlooked by the major off-road motorcycle brands. Initially it was just a hobby, born within Sam’s bedroom in Tasmania, but soon after the brand kicked off in 2009 with the benchmark set for the sky.
FIST Director/Designer, Jesse Pidgeon, heard about the brand and presented his ideas on the artistic side of where he say the product going. By 2011 he was a partner and shaping the future of the unique style that FIST Handwear is known for today.
Finally, global FMX rockstar, Robbie Maddison, signed on in 2014 as a third partner. He brought with him the weight of his endorsement as well as a wealth of industry knowledge. Since then the brand has gone from strength to strength and is now being globalised by quality distribution houses throughout the world including Ficeda and FIST’s very own self distribution centre in Huntington Beach, California. “We at FIST are super excited to join the family over at Ficeda and to have our products distributed alongside some of the best quality in the world,”said Sam Moore: Director & Marketing/Sales Manager “For us to have the backing of an amazing distributor like Ficeda in my home country of Australia is so important as we now know our own backyard is in great hands,”said Robbie Maddison, Global FMX Superstar, FIST Handwear Partner FIST’s new 2017 collection has just hit the shelves globally with this years range showing the artistically bold style that the brand is known for. From the super fruity Piña Colada glove through to the gracefully bold colours of the Stocker range, weird and wonderful Wolfzilla (a glove which displays a giant wolf destroying a city with laser beam eyes) and time-warp inducing Tie Dye slip ons.
FIST have also put a strong emphasis on their premium team rider red label series which include Robbie Maddison’s Skullcandy Eclipse glove, Taka Higashino’s Rising glove as well as offerings from BMX stars Caroline Buchannan, Logan Martin and James Foster.
Whether you want to blend into the crowd with something durable and safe or take the podium with all guns a blazing as a decorated soldier of the #FISTARMY, FIST Handwear has got the glove for you.
