Dainese Launches Smart Jacket which is claimed to predict the future!

Dainese’s Smart jacket features D-air technology in a lightweight vest that is claimed to be able to predict when an accident is about to occur!

DAINESE is a company that thrives at the coalface of technological innovation. From the now mandatory for MotoGP D-air suits to the Biosuit as worn by astronauts. If it can be developed – Dainese will probably have a crack at it!


The latest innovation, the Smart Jacket, takes the D-air airbag vest and turns it into a multifunctional item that can be worn underneath or on top of any jacket. Dainese claims the new product is ‘a foldable, functional article of clothing, which does not require any connection to the bike.’

The jacket is the first airbag vest featuring D-air technology that can be worn either over or under any jacket or outfit, without requiring any form of connection to the bike. The jacket features, what Dainese are calling, a ‘brain’ which is a small electronic control unit that analyses 1,000 times per second the data from seven sensors hidden within the product. When the system detects any ‘dangerous situations’ – we suspect that means high g-forces, extreme changes in angle, pitch or yaw – the system is activated.

Dainese claims to have put two decades of development into their D-air system and are so confident in their algorithm they claim it can predict an accident, including stationary vehicle collisions!

The Smart Jacket features the third-generation D-air Road system and includes the option to have the airbag replaced by an authorised dealer, offers long battery life and fast recharging times.

Dainese Smart Jacket is available in six sizes, with a version for men and a version for women. It will be in stores from July, and will retail at £569.95
