With riders like nine-time MotoGP Champion Valentino Rossi and Isle of Man TT favorite Guy Martin using Dainese gear, there’s no doubting the quality.

Some of the motorcycle industry’s leading companies have worked with Dainese to build customized gear, such as Ducati. And on Wednesday, BMW Motorrad reported it agreed on “long-term cooperation” with Dainese to develop protective apparel for motorcyclists.

The two will start with Dainese’s famed D-Air Protect System, and build the DoubleR RaceAir one-piece leather suit designed exclusively for racetrack riders, such as those who ride the S1000RR.

The leather suit, which will be unveiled at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan this November once all testing is complete, features integrated inflatable protectors that make Dainese’s D-Air Protect System so popular.

A Dainese D-Air Street System will then be designed for BMW Motorrad, and is expected to be launched in 2015. BMW Motorrad and Dainese are also looking into further ways of cooperating in the interest of providing further protection for motorcycle riders, the Bavarian motorcycle company reports.

About BMW apparel:

BMW Motorrad is the only motorcycle manufacturer to have developed the complete range of rider equipment ever since the 1970s – from motorcycle helmets to rider suits, boots and gloves. In doing so, high priority is attached to maximum comfort for the rider as well as minimizing the potential consequences of accidents.

In addition to the NP protectors for motorcycle suits developed by BMW Motorrad as well as safety-optimized boots and gloves, the Neck Brace System introduced in 2007 also contributes to the safety system.

The ABS pioneer BMW Motorrad has always regarded motorcycling and safety as being inseparably linked and anchored in the “Safety 360°” principle. “Safety 360°” breaks down the overall concept of safe motorcycling into three facets: safety technology in the vehicle, safety deriving from rider equipment and safety through rider training

Having maintained its leading role for decades when it comes to active and passive motorcycling safety, BMW is now extending this position further through its long-term collaboration with Dainese.
