Dainese/AGV Pav.2 - Stand P20
Dainese will be present at ECIMA for the 69th International Motorcycle Show, with a world preview of some of their most innovative projects. Dainese will be attending with helmet company AGV under the banner of Italian Legendary Protection; a name that brings together two iconic brands and emphasises the excellence of 'Made in Italy'.
Last year at EICMA, Dainese unveiled the D-air® Racing project and this year the road-going version of their air bag system, D-air® Street, will be showcased. D-air® is a technological platform designed and built to protect riders on the racetrack and on the road. The system detects a fall, slide or hazard and a signal is sent to inflate airbags around the rider’s body. With over ten-years of development, research and testing, D-air® is not just an airbag suit, but also a highly evolved technical device.
Defined in men’s lifestyle magazine GQ, as ‘the greatest discovery in protection after the crash helmet’. D-air® Racing has already won two international awards: the GQ Car Awards for 'Best Safety Measure' and the 'Clothing Product of the Year', in Motorcycle News’s recent industry awards.
In 2012 D-air® will be available in the Street version, which has been designed specifically for day-to-day use on the road. The presentation of D-air® Street will be alongside the new version of AGV Standards, the innovative new method of crash helmet design. With an accurate skull scanning system that enables the design of the helmet to be fully fitted round the rider’s head, to increase safety and comfort.
On Tuesday 8 November at 1500hrs, Dainese and AGV will host a press conference presenting these two projects on the Dainese/AGV stand.
