Dainese and AGV Presents Advanced Head-to-Toe System for Bike Racing

Italian leather giant Dainese has launched a brand new head-to-toe safety system for motorcycle racing – in line with its company mission of advocating and delivering safety in dynamic sports.

The new head-to-toe system includes the AGV Pitsa GP R helmet and the Dainese Mugello R D-air racing suit, and represents a further milestone in safety technology. Working closely together with MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi, the outfit introduces several state-of-the-art technologies and innovations, conceived by the Dainese Science and Research Center.


The newborn Mugello R D-air racing suit represents Dainese’s state-of-the-art safety technology and introduces over 25 new features and several pioneering innovations leading to five new patents. The D-air platform has been implemented to extend the area covered by the airbag: from the neck, shoulders and collarbones, to the lower sides of the rib cage. The suit features a redesigned and seamless-integrated LED interface, as well as a patented Intelligent Emergency Lighting System directly triggered by the sophisticated D-air algorithm. It will be available through Dainese’s custom works program, will be introduced in two color options from April 2017 starting from £3,399.95.


The Mugello R D-air offers enhanced comfort and protection with the application of an adaptive knee construction and innovative constructive solutions, such as high-performance pre-curved engineered textiles and tri-axial elastics. The elbow construction has also been re-engineered, introducing an optimised slider shape and a quick release system.


The Pista GP R is an evolution of the groundbreaking Pista GP helmet and is the perfect combination of protection, performance and comfort – offering increased field of vision with the introduction of a Race 3 Max Pinlock, a Class 1 Optic visor with 100% Max Vision Pinlock (120) and is characterised by a new-patented Visor Lock System (VLS).


The aerodynamic performance has been improved with a new wind-tunnel-tested Biplano rear spoiler, while comfort benefits from a new-patented interior structure and an implemented Integrated Ventilation System (IVS). The Pista GP R is the first helmet to include a hydration system, featuring internal channels and a drinking valve placed inside the chin area.

The Pista GP R will be available from November (2016) with prices starting from £1,011.95.
