Dainese D-Air® - High level body protection system



at dainese we‘re inspired

by humans

Which is why D-air® technology – our most advanced milestone on the road to the future of safety - is a sophisticated system combining a Heart, a Brain and an Intelligence.

A Brain that controls, monitoring our actions and reactions using a patented proprietary algorithm, the true intelligence of the system. And a Heart that provides wrap-around protection in an instant using revolutionary airbag technology. The Heart protects. The Brain and the Intelligence ensure it does so effectively at just the right moment. Combining the two creates Intelligent Clothing.

Intelligent Clothing is technology you can wear thanks to the innovative integration of expertise from a wide range of fields, including electronics, mechanical engineering and ergonomics. Integration that’s made possible by another field of expertise - that of designing safety tailored to the human body.

D-air® is a protection technology platform that uses an intelligent system to detect danger situations and inflate special airbags developed for motorcyclists. Much more than a product family, D-air® is a highly-advanced protection technology that can be deployed in products designed for a broad spectrum of different uses where protection is required.

D-air® is intelligent clothing, able to protect the wearer, even without their intervention, when they are unable to control what is happening.

The system features different configurations, tailored to the product in which they are integrated and its usage, from the race track to everyday riding.






The 3D Airbag at the heart of every D-air® System. Ergonomically designed for maximum comfort, it features a microfilament construction that ensures uniform inflation for maximum protection.


The D-Air® control unit monitors the sensor signals 1,000 times a second using a sophisticated triggering algorithm to decide whether to inflate the airbag.


The proprietary patented triggering algorithm is the intelligence of the system, analyzing and combining the data from the sensors to decide when to inflate the airbag.



Tests carried out in accordance with the current European Standards for shoulder protectors (EN1621.1) show that the D-air® system reduces the impact forces transferred by 90% compared with Level 2 traditional composite protectors.
