Last year, the company unveiled the D-air Racing system to the crowds. This year, the road-going version of the airbag system, D-air Street, will be showcased.

D-air is a technological platform designed and built to protect riders on the racetrack and the road. The system detects a fall, slide or hazard, and a signal is sent to inflate airbags around the rider’s body.

With over ten years of development, research and testing, D-air is not just an airbag suit, but also a highly evolved technical device.

Defined in men’s lifestyle magazine GQ, as ‘the greatest discovery in protection after the crash helmet’, D-air Racing has already won two international awards: the GQ Car Awards for 'Best Safety Measure' and the 'Clothing Product of the Year', in the recent Motorcycle News industry awards.

In 2012 D-air will be available in the Street version, which has been designed specifically for day-to-day use on the road.

The presentation of D-air Street will be alongside the new version of AGV Standards, the new method of crash helmet design. With an accurate skull scanning system, it enables the design of the helmet to be fitted around the rider’s head, to increase safety and comfort.
