Dainese is proud to present D-air® Racing, the revolutionary airbag which protects riders during circuit racing. After more than 10 years of study and experiments, D-Tec® (Dainese Technology Center), the Dainese R&D department, introduced D-air® Racing during trials for the Grand Prix of Valencia 2007 in a totally active mode. In fact during the 250 cc free-training in Valencia, the D-air® Racing has protected the Dainese rider Marco Simoncelli from the consequences of a bad high-side. In Valencia the D-air® Racing has been also integrated into the suits of 125 cc riders Simone Giorgi e Michael Ranseder: both of these two riders felt down and their D-air® Racing have been exploded protecting them safely. This new rider protection technology has therefore entered the world of racing with a system which, thanks to the use of airbags, is able to protect the rider's body in areas that conventional protections leave exposed: shoulders, collarbones and neck. The tests performed at the D-Tec® laboratories, in fact, have proved that the system acts as a much better shock absorber than conventional composite protections, with which, D-air® uses in synergy in order to create a head-to-foot safety system. The most revolutionary aspect of D-air® Racing is that the entire system is contained in a new and very special attachment on the rider's shoulders and back which takes the place of the traditional "hump". D-air® Racing works totally independently from the motorcycle and triggers when the rider falls due to sliding of the front (front lowside) or rear (back lowside) wheel or in the event of a highside (the movie shows the initial tests conducted using a stuntman at Adria, ed.).
