Dainese D-Air Racing Suit Airbag System Supports Google Earth
What we already knew was that D-air Racing works in synergy with existing armour in race suits and gives airbag protection to shoulders and improves protection in the neck and upper chest area.
Now moving on the more ‘spicy’ details, we’ll tell you the system works as a tool to monitor riding performance and record telemetry data, which can be downloaded and displayed on a computer.
Extensive functions of the system include lap time data, GPS telemetry of the bike and diagrams in relation to time – assessment of braking spaces and lines through bends. Acceleration data is also available and the system is compatible with Google Earth, which enables plotting of racing lines on a mini map.
The D-air Racing system has passed all motorcycle personal protective equipment tests, not only for the current European standards but also for pre-standards, which will come into effect in the future. Moreover, the D-air system is so innovative that the current standards were only partially able to meet the certification needs of an advanced system.
The suit can be customised to a client specific needs with bespoke colours, additional names, logos and messages. D-air prices start from £2,409 for a standard suit and can range up to £3,240 depending on customisation.
