So a few of the team have been testing out Fist gloves for a few months now and I am hearing some really good feedback about them.
I asked friend to the stars ,top racer ,trails boss and all round good egg Nick Hill to give us a write up on the Fist gloves , and of course he obliged and wrote this piece in his own slightly odd style.
( He is quite posh you know!!)

It occurred to me on greeting fellow bmxers there are various hand gesticulations involving some form of touch. These gloves, if you are in any doubt give a fairly direct clue. The fist bump.
This company seems to herald from down under, where the phrase ‘spunk’ is deemed an acceptable term to complement a male from a female perspective. This leads to wondering if it could be misinterpreted in some circles, but this is definitely not the case.
Fisthandwear’s angle is one of empowerment of the wearer. The logo is one single fist thrust into the air in celebration. This embodies the sports they sponsor, mostly freestyle, but one racer Caroline Buchannon has been seen rocking a pair on the cover of a magazine with Mr Nobles flying over the top of her. Other notable wearers include legendary Daddy Whyte, who has chosen the same design as Cazzo.
The gloves themselves are a single piece palm of some sort of thin suede like material. No seams to ruck up while grabbing your grips. Lycra sided finger panels, and a durable stretch top piece with the raised FIST logo just below the knuckles. This gives a little relief when you drag them on the floor. The wrist closure is the thrusting fist logo in vinyl with industrial grade hook and loop.
All in all these gloves not only look super good but they are hard wearing , comfortable and will make you win races so go and get yourself a pair NOW!!!!
These gloves are so cool, only tattooing your hands would be better.
(Hmmm do you think I can get away with this…DG)
