7. Dainese D-Air Racing Suit, $4,999
The next big leap in racing suit technology is the addition of airbags that automatically deploy within a split-second of a spill, creating a cushion of air to protect a rider’s neck and collarbone. According to Dainese, the D-air airbag-equipped racing suit reduces the force of impact transferred to these areas by 85%.
The technology has been race-tested, with Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi among the first to wear the D-air in competition. Now who can argue with that pedigree?
The D-air full leather racing suit is priced at $3,999, but for an even more special gift, spend another $1000 to have it custom tailored to fit your favorite rider. For more information, visit http://www.dainese.com.
