Dainese DAir Misano 1000 jacket

Put your hand in Dair if you want one

It'll be available in black as well

TO celebrate 1000 deployments of its D-air system, Dainese has just released details of its new D-air Misano 1000 leather jacket, which will be available from November in two colour schemes, costing €1499.

It’s Dainese’s first leather jacket to feature an electronically controlled D-air airbag that’s been designed to work independently of a sensor kit fitted to a bike. Unlike the D-air system in Dainese's one-piece suits, all the necessary electronics for the Misano are housed in the back protector.

The airbag inflates uniformly by 5cm and is designed to provide protection for the collarbone, chest and back. The software uses six sensors hosted in the back-protector to monitor the dynamics of the rider's body 800 times a second and determines when to deploy the system in the event of impacts, high-sides and low-slides with tumbling.

The Misano also has all the traditional stuff you'd expect to see on a high end leather jacket - shoulder and elbow armour, an ergonomic fit and a zip so you can fasten it to your trousers. Crucially, it's also got a little LED to indicate whether the system is armed or not, which is equally important when it comes to looking the part down at the cafe on a Sunday morning.

This video from Dainese details the histroy of D-air, and features a good slow motion clip of the system being put to use by Luis Salom.
