Leon Haslam To Wear Dainese in 2011
As expected, Haslam's suit will be fitted with the D-air system, just like all the other riders sponsored by Dainese. The project has been developed by D-Tech, the R&D department of the Italian company, and represents an important milestone in the field of safety in the world of motorcycling.
"The technical guys at Dainese are excellent and the suits I've tried so far are extremely practical, lightweight and - following my small crash at Cartagena two weeks ago - offer the necessary protection,” the Briton added. "I hope with Dainese, BMW and my other partners that we are also all celebrating success at the end of the 2011 World Superbike Championship."
When opened, the latest D-Air Racing protects shoulders and the collar bones areas primarily. Furthermore, the airbag sack creates a surface for the resting and support of the helmet that limits the movement of the neck. The airbag deflates all by itself and the suit returns to its original form. What is really interesting is that after deflation, the rider can continue racing.
