DAINESE PRESENTS D-AIR STREET AND AGV STANDARDS AT EICMA
08 November 2011 | News
At 1500hrs today, Dainese launched two important projects – D-air Street and AGV Standards – to attending media at EICMA in Italy.
D-air Street is an airbag jacket/waistcoat system designed for use on public roads, which has finally arrived on the market after 10-years of research and development. With today’s launch the Italian brand is ready to revolutionise motorcycle protection.
Dedicated to protect, D-air Street is a system that identifies a fall or slide, and once triggered airbags inflate around the rider’s body. Dainese launched D-air Racing in 2010, which is for use on race tracks, and now D-air Street can be added to the D-air collection.
The new version of AGV Standards was presented alongside D-air Street, which is an innovative method of helmet design. Using a scanner the system scans the skull and enables the helmet to be designed around the rider’s head, this gives more advantages in terms of comfort and safety.
Vittorio Cafaggi, Strategic Development Manager: This is a crucial and significant moment for Dainese and AGV because it marks the fulfillment of over ten year’s hard work with the D-air and AGV Standards projects and, in our opinion, is also the best way of paying tribute to Sic who worked so hard to develop them.
