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!

Dainese’s Cris­tiano Silei and Fanny Bo­ria with the award.
