What self-empowered woman hasn’t looked on at Lucy Liu’s strong and beautiful characters in "Charlie’s Angels" and "Kill Bill" without a sense of admiration and identification? Dainese openly borrows from those personae for the Yu Lady 1-piece suit and RS-Yu Lady gloves. Pointedly designed for the track, the suit’s full-grain leather has a feminine cut (both physically and graphically) in addition to composite protectors, replaceable sliders and elastic in all the right places. The RS-Yu Lady extends the theme to your fingertips with leather, elastic and a sure wrist strap.
Shoei’s RF-1000 Flutter helmet recognizes our need to float like butterflies on the straights as we sting like queen bees in the corners. Lightweight and fully vented (so we can keep our cool), with a superb finish, the Flutter provides the ultimate in protection of both our heads and femininity. (Click image to enlarge)
Elegant and fast, Sidi’s B2 Ladies boots give us the security we appreciate at speed. A vertebra system protects our Achilles heels and rear calves, the heel cup is fully encapsulated and the DuPont polymer toe shift pad safeguards our manicured toes. And, of course, the styling on this Italian footwear is impeccable. www.dainese.com
