Dainese History Webisode #2Dainese – the Italian manufacturer of the high-tech, air-bag equipped D-Air racing suit worn by nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi – has produced a nine-part video series about D-air, the company and its 40 year history and people that make it as well as the other Dainese products.
The first installment, which features the D-air racing suit worn by Valentino Rossi, was released on the Dainese Youtube channel in September.The second installment was launched during an event held at the Milan D-Store in conjunction with the EICMA show. This installment – attached above – features Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Rossi, along with the people who prepare his race suits.“You love your suit because it must protect you those times—better if just a few—when you fall,” he says before recalling the beginning of his own 20-year history with the brand. “To have a Dainese suit was a dream, because only the best and most famous riders had one. For me, wearing the first Dainese suit was a great gift.”In addition, the series includes Dainese President Lino Dainese, and some famous customers including Giacomo Agostini, Marco Luccinelli and Rossi.
This week, Senior Editor Nic de Sena rides the all new Ducati Monster. Big changes have been made by Ducati–has the company ruined the considerable heritage of the iconic Monster–or are the changes worth it? In the second part of the show, we chat with Nick Ienatsch, Founder and Head Instructor at the Yamaha Champions Riding School. He says: “We aim to change your riding life by introducing you to Champions Habits: The techniques, approaches, skills, and the mindsets of the best riders in the world. These Champions Habits are the foundation of safety and consistency to whatever speed you ride, in any venue on any bike. Street riders, this is just as much for you as track riders. The best way to make safe riders is to make good riders.“ We hope you enjoy this episode!
