If you register as a VIP, you will get significant discounts on the items instead -since sales tax only applies to California residents

As much as that thing cost, it better have its own spot at the track, the dinner table and plenty of side chicks!

I crash tested my new D Air suit first time out racing at Donnington last weekend.
You can see me going into orbit at 2'55'' here about four bikes in front of the camera


After my mate had a very bad accident the month before and I had a big highside at Jerez only two weeks before I wouldn't be without it now!



After crashing in it I bought another one to make sure that I had one for the next race but supposedly there's a 10 day turn around in the UK at the moment.

I've bought a contract that is 200 a year and covers as many recharges as I need, I just pay extra for any suit damage at the same time so it's a no brainer if you are racing or doing a lot of trackdays. There's talk of Dianese stopping doing this contract going forward and no news of what if any it will be replaced with.

The suits have full data logging which is pretty cool to see what is happening during the accident and also just for normal data analysis of your riding. The red green and blue lines are the X, Y and Z accelerometers which go mental during the high side and the white line is the calculated risk of accident which sets off the air bag. I remember flying through the air and thinking 'bollocks, not again, this is going to hurt'. I didn't even feel the airbag deploy but when I hit the track it was a lot softer than previously in Jerez and I walked away with just a sore elbow and a smashed up bike! We managed to get it fixed for the afternoon race which was effectively a shakedown and I came in second to last. The next days grid positions were based on this so I started from the back both races but managed to get 23 of 38 which was pretty cool as the Thundersport series is the unofficial feeder into British Superbikes so everyone is super fast.

Glad to hear the suit performed well and you walked away and were able to finish the day.

Did you or do you know if you can use the suit after it deploys to finish your day or weekend? Having a second suit would be nice but that's a lot of $$$.

That white risk factor line went crazy! Thanks for sharing the info and great vids!
Thanks from royal
