FIST Rat Racing Replica and Rat Racing Cheese Block gloves
FIST Handwear present their latest offering in licensed product, combining with iconic Australian Motocross brand Rat Racing. FIST has re-created two styles of vintage gloves that have been released exclusively through FIST Handwear’s Australian moto distributor Ficeda Accessories.
The vintage gloves are available in two versions: the Rat Racing Replica glove – A modern take on the vintage ’80s style of Rat Racings glove for $44.95 RRP; and the Rat Racing Cheese Block glove – The classic styling of Rat’s Cheese block logo on FIST’s proven strapped glove for $44.95 RRP.
“For us to have the privilege to align with Vincent and his brand Rat Racing is just crazy!” Said FIST Marketing Director Sam Moore. “My very first vivid memories of motocross are of my uncle riding fully decked out in his Rat Racing gear. It takes not only myself, but I am sure a lot of people back to the glory days of motocross in Australia. You really can’t say enough for what Vincent has done for the sport in Australia and it’s a great honour to work alongside him.”
“The original Rat Racing concept and Rat Clothing brand was my brainchild back in the 80’s” said Mr Motocross promoter Vincent Tesoriero. “For about a decade the Rat brand was very visible out there for its distinctive style and the best riders liked to wear it because it was tough and could take the heat. In the dirt and on the tar, Rat Factory Team riders always looked like winners,” Tesoriero stated.
“Creating a young, action-orientated image around the Rat brand was an exciting time back-in-the-day, so I’m really pleased that I have been able to collaborate with a now brand like FIST, who share the same values as the Rat did back then. FIST has been able to morph the Rat’s MX heritage into a cutting edge riding glove, constructed with the latest materials that will stand up to the demands of tomorrow’s action sports.”
