Dainese D-air Racing Suit - January 24, 2012, 02:50 PM

Scroll down for price

This just in from Dainese:
Dainese introduces D-air Racing in the USA
(Costa Mesa, CA 1/23/2012). A crowd of journalists gathered at the D-Store Orange County for the 2012 Dainese and AGV collections preview. After ten years of reserach and development, the Italian manufacturer presented the D-air Racing suit: the First of its kind to be sold in the US.
This highly-anticipated Dainese D-air Racing suit will be available for purchase in the USA. This hightech suit operates as a protection device as well as an impressive track day tool. Developed on race racetracks with the help of top Dainese racers including Valentino Rossi, Stefan Bradl, Leon Haslam and Max Biaggi, the D-air Racing works in synergy with existing armour in race suits and gives airbag protection to shoulders and improves protection in the neck and upper chest area.
The electronic system identifies a fall or slide and immediately sends a trigger signal to the gas generator in the hump of the suit. This activates the internal airbag, which then inflates within 30 millieseconds. D-air Racing has a patented 3D airbag structure providing the rider with a controlled airbag expansion. It is the only airbag suit on the market that works wirelessly without any connection to a motorcycle.
Aside from the unique safety features, the D-air Racing suit is a track day enthusiast's ideal tool for improvement. The system features data acquisition software developed by German company 2D (2d-datarecording), which supplies some of the top teams in MotoGP and F1. The software gives D-air users an effective source to monitor riding performance and record telemetry data, that can be downloaded and displayed on a computer. Extensive functions of the system include lap time data, GPS telemetry of the bike and diagrams in relation to time: assessment of braking spaces and lines through bends. Acceleration data is also available and the system is compatible with Google Earth and enables plotting of racing lines on a mini map.

The D-air Racing system passed all motorcycle personal protective equipment tests, not only for the current European standards but also for pre-standards, which will come into effect in the future. The D-air system is so innovative that the current standards were only partially able to meet the certification needs of an advanced system. TÜV SÜD were required to develop a new and more appropriate testing producer before submitting the D-air Racing system, which went far beyond the existing standards. D-air Racing is proud to be TÜV SÜD system certified.
During the presentation, Dainese delivered the first D-air Racing suit to Blake Young, AMA Superbike racer. He will be the First US rider to use the suit in the AMA Superbike Championship.
The suit can be custom made by size, colors, names and logos. The suit will be available for ordering starting from June 2012, with a starting cost of $3,999.
For more information please contact your authorized Dainese dealer. For a complete list of dealers D-air Racing certificated please stay tuned on Dainese.com.

Price isn't that far out of line. You are paying for the electronics and all the research that went into it. Think of one ambulance trip to the hospital and weeks of missed work and the price probably looks better.

I agree the price isn't far out of line for first production of this tech. Just saying shoe string budget racers and track day riders need not apply.

"It's simple, really. Just don't highside or crash in a manner that makes you need to have airbags in the first place. Just set her down easy and count the grass as it goes by." -- Heard around a grill at a flat track in New Jersey when the topic of airbags in leathers and some of the testing the Americans had done in 2011 came up.

If I could afford it without reservation, I'd buy one. Why not have the best safety that money could buy? I'll be stuffing bubble wrap in my suit until that happens.


"ride on #47, ride on"

on the internet you can be anyone you want, it's strange that so many people choose to be so stupid
