Dainese Open link in a new window, well known for their protective clothing and helmets for motorcycle riders around the world, including none other than Valentino Rossi, are equipping a part of the Italian motorcycle police with their new revolutionary air bag vests, the D-Air Street.

The 15 officers that will be equipped with these new air bag vests will have as duty the escort of the famous Italian bicycle race, the Giro d'Italia. The 15 cops are in fact the guinea pigs (no pun intended) since the new vests are not yet available to the public. During the bicycle race, Dainese technicians will be monitoring the data provided by the officers.

Roberto Sgalla, Traffic Police Director: “The Traffic Police wish to thank Dainese for having provided our motorcycle riders with a state-of-the-art protection system. We hope this will encourage all motorcyclists to use suitable protections, with the start of the warm weather and the motorcycle riding season and, as always, to respect the rules of the road"

The D-Air racing system has been tested for a few years, and more and more professional racers are starting to use it. One of the main test dummies (again, no pun intended) is one who crashes often, Marco Simoncelli: “I have been using the D-air since 2007; I was the first pilot to fall with it on the track; I hold the record, although I'm  not sure if it's positive or not… I understood just how important it is when I fell in Malaysia during the 2010 tests.  I would normally have broken my collarbone or shoulder with a fall like that, but instead I was able to get back on my bike and take part in the race without any problem. The D-air is really something – since trying it the first time I have never again ridden a bike without it."
