Item No. 201896755
If we had to choose just one garment that is symbolic of Dainese, it would without a doubt be the back protector. Created in collaboration with Barry Sheen in 1978 and designed by Marc Sadler, it recalls the scales of a lobster, which is how it got its name. But three years later, in 1981, it gains definitive recognition: Freddy"Fast" Spencer suffers a disastrous fall during the Kyalami Grand Prix trials. He is left uninjured despite crashing into dangerous South African curbs at high speed, thanks to his back protector. From then on, this accessory becomes as important as the helmet for every rider.
