Nitro Circus X Fist Handwear

Nitro Circus has slowly but surely been selectively building partnerships with top gear brands that have been vetted and approved by their stable of serious athletes. It makes perfect sense: Amazing gear is half the fun when you’re an action sports junkie, and that’s true whether you’re a top pro or a weekend warrior. With that in mind, Nitro Circus has now officially partnered with Fist Handwear!

Fist Handwear has just launched two signature Nitro Circus gloves – The Nitro Circus Stars and Stripes plus the Nitro Circus Staple glove. Find them online HERE.

‘The Smiling Assassin’

“Can you help hook up my young FMX ripper Tommy Rob bro, I have already given him some gloves and he is going to be massive and he’s he nicest kid in the world” – A text message from Aussie FMX legend Justin “bushy” Bush.

That is the first I had heard of Tommy Robinson, one of the Fish Fingered FMX crew from NSW I knew two things immediately –

1 – That he was obviously going to be a total ripper of a bloke.
2 – That he would shred on a dirt bike.

Fast forward to F1 in Melbourne this year, watching practice I could hear a few industry people who were in early for the event talking “who’s the kid in the all black?!… I have got no idea but he is killing it!!”

I guess both of those scenarios really describes Tommy the best, he is honestly one of the nicest people I have ever met and he lets his riding do the talking.

It’s dudes like Tommy that make what we do so worthwhile seeing the #FISTARMY kill it on the world stage is still so surreal to me and that is exactly what Tommy has been doing having. Tommy also just competed at XFighters in Madrid, landing his new world first body aerial now called the “twist top”.

Big things are happening for Tommy and they couldn’t happen to a more deserving legend.

I guess you can call this clip a ‘Welcome to the team’ that is 2 years late but hey good things come to those who wait right?!
Special mention to Benny from Headstrong films for killing it with the edit!

Smash Forth Tommy and thank you for flying the #FISTARMY flag.

#FISTARMY

This time every year we are treated to a weekend of seeing the world best action sports athletes compete on the world stage in what is referred to as the Olympics of action sports the XGames.

When I started this little glove company I dreamed of seeing it on the big stage in the XGames on the other side of the world in the USA, it always seemed so far away from Tasmania, Australia and sort of unreachable but to see the athletes we support not only competing but absolutely killing it is crazy to me and I am lucky to have these guys in our corner. 4 Xgames medals for the #FISTARMY in 2016 so stoked! – sam88moore (FIST HQ)

Robbie Maddison begins training after an invasive knee operation.

After surgery on Robbie’s left knee 6 months ago he’s now back to training taking Robbie Maddison to the next level and doing things that have never been done before!
We thought riding a wave on a dirt bike was already insane next level stuff so can’t wait to see what’s install next. #FISTARMY


Whilst out in Cali earlier this year I was lucky enough to tee up a morning session with Taka Higashino to shoot some photo & video content.

We were blessed with prime FMX conditions, not a breath of wind insight and the sun was out in force for the morning session at Ronnie Faisst’s compound in Murrieta. Taka is a mad man and it was really cool to see how he rides a session, each rider is different in the way they tackle their daily sessions. It’s almost an art in how each rider achieves trick perfection.

Taka sure didn’t hold back, throwing huge tricks one after another, smooth and extended every time! With the conditions being perfect we were really able to make the most of the opportunity and gathered a bunch of real quality photo and video content.

It’s not everyday you get to shoot one of the best Freestyle riders in the world, especially one as cool and down to earth as Taka, his broken English is bad ass and makes for a good laugh! It was a pleasure shooting whilst out in Cali, definitely a highlight of the trip!
