DAINESE SCOOPS 2017 INTERNATIONAL AWARD!
Whether you love the Italian brand or not, there’s absolutely no denying the safety and quality of Dainese’s products – so much so that they’ve just received the Compasso D’Oro International award for their Pro-Armor Protection System which is excellent news for us lot who like to crash in their kit.
The awarding panel praised Dainese’s “little ideas that can save elbows, knees, backs and therefore lives”. The company had paid great attention to the safety of people in general and motorcyclists in particular. “The Pro-Armor protection system features a technical and expressive design inspired by fractal geometry and the perforated structure, with variable pattern, distributes either flexibility or rigidity where it is needed, keeping the inserts light and breathable.
“The result is a painstakingly precise design for ‘invisible’ objects that are concealed inside sportswear. Apart from the stylistic expression, which is typical of current sporting language, the quality of the solution presents the possibility of extending its functional and expressive use to other sports equipment.”
I know it may seem insignificant, but trust us, it’s awesome to know how well your kit works and how hard these guys work to keep us safe!
