At 20 years of age, Lino Dainese and some friends went to London on a Vespa.
It was then that he saw "ton up bikes" whose riders wore the first sets of leathers.
Back in Italy, he decided to dedicate himself to designing and manufacturing protection for motorbike riders.

The style of riding was changing. Riders leaned their bikes more and more, trailing their knees on the track.
Dainese tested the first knee sliders with the leading rider, Kenny Roberts.
The first products were known as “porcupines” because of the soft cylinders that protruded from a special base (applied to the suit’s knee) when the leg was bent.
With the participation of 5-time champion Toni Mang, racing suit ergonomics were revolutionised.
Until then, all such suits had been manufactured with the rider's upright stance used as the baseline.

This radically improved both the comfort and the efficiency of the protection provided during races.
