Dainese continues support for UK racers in 2017
Release date: Friday 31st March 2017


Dainese is pleased to announce its continuing support of UK riders in British Superbike, World Superbike and road racing. In the British Superbike Championship, which kicks off this weekend at Donington Park, Leon Haslam (Kawasaki), Tommy Bridewell (Kawasaki) and Dan Linfoot (Honda) will continue to fly the Dainese flag. All three will help contribute to the development of the D-Air® system, along with Italy’s Davide Giugliano (BMW), as all data from the suit will be fed back to Dainese’s R&D department.

The D-Air® Racing system works in synergy with the existing body armour in professional racing leathers to shield the rider’s shoulders, neck and collar bone during high side and low side impacts. In the event of a crash, D-Air® will activate when the Intelligent Triggering Algorithm deems the crash serious enough to do so.

Dainese will also continue its role as the Official Safety Partner of the MCE British Superbike Championship, a relationship that started in 2011. In addition to this Dainese has been the Official Clothing Partner of the FIM since 2015, cementing the company’s commitment to safety throughout all motorcycle disciplines.

The Italian safety specialist will also be supporting road racing specialist James Hillier (Kawasaki) and Guy Martin (Honda), who will be making his return to road racing this year. The highlight for both Hillier and Martin will come at the beginning of June when they tackle the 37.73mile Mountain circuit at the Isle of Man TT races.

From racing to production: D-Air® technology is available in a range of suits and jackets, including the brand new Mugello R D-Air® and D-Air® Racing Misano.
