Father’s Day is fast approaching, so make sure you’ve got something ready for dad come September 5, with Ficeda offering some great suggestions. With summer on the way, how about a set of Fist Breezer ‘Ice Cube’ gloves, or the Oxford Aqua B-25 backpack, if dad’s always lugging all his gear around on and off the bike.
If he’s due for a real treat, how about the stunning Shark Spartan GT Carbon helmet, or perhaps the Interphone U-Com 16 comms system which is available in a single or twin pack, or a new set of stylish boots, like the Falco Gordon?
With an eye-catching design perfect for the coming summer weather, the FIST Breezer Glove features an ultra-lite mesh upper, with durable pre-curved perforated Clarino palm, offering protection as well as breathability. A Terry Towel thumb helps clear sweet, and the FIST Breezer glove comes in sizes 2XS through to Extra Large for $44.95 RRP. See the Ficeda website for more info, or head into a local FIST stockist.

There’s a moulded soft carry handle, as well as an external pocket for a hydration pack which can be bought separately. A large front pocket features a water resistant zip, while two side mesh pockets make for easy access. Reflecting detailing boosts visibility, and there’s also a webbed loop for tail light attachment, as well as tension straps for keeping the bag closed.

ABS reinforced ankle cup inserts offer additional protection, with a lace and zipper closure system. The sole is a Goodyear welted high grip rubber unit, for good wear and traction when it gets slippery.

Interphone U-COM 16
The Interphone U-com 16 lays claim to the title as thinnest intercom with Mesh technology on the market, offering a more reliable connection and group connection with other intercoms, of up to 24, with a simple click.
Naturally there’s also total compatibility with all systems by the biggest helmet manufacturers on the market as well, alongside high audio performance thanks to new 40mm HD speakers for an immersive sound.
Another distinctive element of this model is the zero impact design on the helmet. The convenient handy separate battery placed on the back of the helmet will never be seen and can be replaced to double the duration of the intercom. The Interphone U-Com 16 is available as a single unit for $539.95, or you could grab the Twin Pack for $969.95 so you and dad can stay in contact while out for a ride!
