For Dainese, designing protection and safety around people means taking inspiration from Nature. Human history provides inspiration with Medieval and Renaissance suits of armor that once offered the privileged few protection, ergonomics, and safety.
This is the challenge: transform the concepts of Nature and history's most brilliant hunches into protective devices to be used by the largest possible number of users. Protection has finally become democratic.

D-Stone Fabric - Fabric for sports clothing made in high-tenacity twisted nylon with elasticated inserts faced with nylon. Its armored weave offers exceptional comfort characterized by high resistance to abrasion, breaking, and tear with a performance comparable to leather. The S1 version S1 (without resin coating) features Protector treatment. The S1P1 version, in addition to Protector treatment, also features breathable, windproof polyurethane resin coating. Protector treatment grants the fabric excellent water and oil repellence, and the material does not require ironing to re-acquire its properties because only air drying is necessary after washing. This treatment was developed thanks to nanotechnology applied to textile finishing.
Suit-Boots Fastening System - This exclusive Dainese patent lets boots be worn and fastened by Velcro brand hook-and-loop strip under certain suits. The result is greater safety because of the reduction in the number of garment parts that might get hooked to the bike during fall, lower weight, better aerodynamics, and increased comfort due to the reduction of the boot's volume and the greater adherence of the rider's leg to the vehicle.
