FIST JOINS IN ON THE #KaiFight

By | #FISTARMY, SMASH FORTH

FIST Handwear is proud to announce the release of the #KaiFight77 Red Label Glove, with every dollar made from the sales being donated to Kai to aid in his recovery.

Our FIST Army brother Kai Sakakibara went down in a big way at the BMX World Cup in February. He spent weeks in a coma and has just recently been released from Hospital. Kai is making amazing progress, but still has a long road ahead of him.

With help from FIST’s great friend and talented tattoo artist Carly Kawaii, these gloves were created to raise money to aid in Kai’s Fight in any way we can.

After an overwhelming amount of support, in just one week, almost one hundred pairs of the #KaiFight77 gloves were sold and FIST were able to send Kai over $4000. With more gloves still available online, this amount will continue to grow.

Launched on Kai’s Birthday, these gloves are available in both youth and adult sizes and are currently an Australian exclusive, but will be available globally as a part of our next chapter of designs towards the end of the year.

FIST Handwear would like to thank everyone for the amazing show of support for Kai, and with limited stock still available, we’d love you to jump online and grab a pair while stock lasts.

By | #FISTARMY, SMASH FORTH

FIST Handwear, suppliers of the world’s finest MX, MTB, and BMX Gloves, are stoked to bring you Chapter 13!

The Designers at FIST HQ bring you some epic designs from Chapter 13. Introducing the Fruity Watermelons, the Moo and the illusive Pizza Cat. We are also hitting back with some of our best sellers such as the Black Stocker, The Frosty Fingers Cold Weather glove, as well as the new, super cool Breezer Hot Weather glove. 

Made with one of the most durable man-made synthetic leathers on the market, the pre curved Clarino palm makes for superior wear, full breathability and flexibility, without sacrificing feel and keeping the gloves firm fitting to avoid bunching or blistering.

These all-weather gloves are fit with sublimated twill spandex uppers and tacky silicon print on the palm and fingers to offer full breathability, supreme comfort and maximum grip even in wet weather.

The New Chapter 13 RED LABEL range proudly features signature gloves by World moto champions Corey Creed, Matty Phillps, and FIST’s own BMX bad boy Matty Whyatt. Chapter 13 RED LABEL will also see some treats from our favourite little shredder, Jagger Maddison.

These, as well as a bunch of other styles are available now, and surely won’t be around for long. Head to the FIST website or hit up our worldwide stockists to grab yourself a pair or two.

SUPERCROSS ROUND 4 – JACKSON RICHARDSON READY TO RACE

By | #FISTARMY, SUPERCROSS

After a solid 7th overall at Round 4 in New Zealand, Jackson says he’s feeling good going into the final round of the Australian Supercross Championship set to start this weekend in Melbourne . #smashforth

New Zealand was a huge step in the right direction for us, to finish 7th overall was an awesome feeling but to keep both wheels on the ground all weekend was also awesome! I’m going to put in a lot of work during the 2-week break and hopefully finish the season on a high come Melbourne.”

– Jackson

Jackson’s foot injury is also feeling the best it has all season which is a huge relief, feeling better each week he is on the bike! During the break Jackson spent a week in Townsville utilising MotoGP rider Jack Miller’s private Supercross track which was extremely beneficial leading into the final round.

 

 

SUPERCROSS ROUND 2 – JACKSON RICHARDSON SMASHES FORTH

By | #FISTARMY, SUPERCROSS

Another round of the Australian Supercross Championship has wrapped up over the weekend with Jackson overcoming adversity to finish 9th in the 20 lap main event. #smashforth

“We had to battle through some adversity this weekend with my foot injury. We were able to qualify 7th which was a great start, but unfortunately in the heat race I had a small crash and aggravated my injured foot. We regrouped and came back out for the main event, I got an average start but fought all the way to the 6th position but with a handful of laps to go my foot started to give out and I was barely able to hang on, this resolved in my losing a number of positions and finishing the main event in 9th.  I’m glad out make it out of Adelaide safely and now have the ability to get healthy over the 3-week break before heading to Round 3 in Sydney where I expect to be fighting up in the Top 5 where I know I can be.”
– Jackson.

 

SUPERCROSS ROUND 1 – JACKSON RICHARDSON INJURED

By | #FISTARMY, SUPERCROSS

Richo had a pretty nasty crash at the opening round of the Australian Supercross Championship in Brisbane on the weekend which you might have seen?

Unfortunately Jackson didn’t make the main event due to him stalling the motorcycle on his last chance to qualify but as always was able to maintain his sense of humour  🤘#smashforth 😂😂😂

Obviously Jackson was extremely bummed with the result but overall was really happy with his riding, especially after qualifying 4th earlier in the day.

Following the opening round Jackson has since had X-Rays on his right foot which was hurt during his crash. Jackson end up breaking all 5 toes on his right foot, the pinky toe being the most significant.

Despite the injury, Jackson will compete at Round 2 this weekend in Adelaide as his pain level is quite low when he is actually on the motorcycles which is a positive.
