It has been in development since 2000 and is due to hit the market in April/May 2011.

D-air Racing has been tested over the last year by newly-crowned MotoGP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo, along with teammate Valentino Rossi and also by TT road-racer Guy Martin.

The system is the only one on the market to operate without any physical connection to a motorcycle. D-air Racing works in synergy with existing armor in racing leathers, shielding the areas of a riders body that need further protection, such as the shoulders, collar bones, etc. It also limits excessive movement in the neck and shoulder blades. Once triggered, the system is deployed within 45 milliseconds.

Thanks to clever technology, wearers of the Racing system can see if they could show Lorenzo a thing or two on the track by recording telemetry data and downloading it to a computer.

Although no price was announced it is estimated to cost around $3500 in Europe. The price includes the made-to-measure leather suit, and all the technical features which makes the D-air Racing function.

D-air Racing Technical Features:
two integrated systems and a back unit
