Whether it be the biting cold of an early morning commute or the sub-zero chill of an Arctic tour - If riding through winter is what you do, investing in good quality riding gear is a must. Dainese's new Explorer range looks to answer the questions asked by winter and summer by offering hi-tech winter solutions and multi-layer clothing for warmer climes.

Antartica Gore-Tex Jacket and Pant

Consisting of the Antartica Gore-Tex jacket and pant, the two-piece suit is designed for riders who enjoy the challenge of snow, ice and sub-zero temperatures.

Featuring a Gore-Tex outer and a removable inner goose down liner that can also be worn separately when off the bike.

Both jacket and pant utilise a laminated Gore-Tex 45mm outer shell that provides protection against the elements. For situations where warmer weather emerges, direct-to-the-body vent zips at the chest and legs allow ventilation to maintain the ideal body temperature.

An inner adjustable lumbar belt on the jacket enables a tailored fit with outer pockets that are designed for ease of use when in the riding position and moved to the hips so as not to compromise comfort. Unique G.O.Pocket compartments allow storage of gloves and larger items when not riding.

Antartica Gore-Tex uses a pro-armor Level 2 back protector, as well as Level 2 elbow and shoulder protectors. A pocket for a Double Chest protector is included if additional armour is desired. Certified hip protectors and Level 2 composite knee protectors are also provided for the trousers.

Gran Turismo Gore-Tex Jacket and Pant

The Gran Turismo jacket and pant is a year-round garment designed for touring and adventure riding through the summer and into the colder months.

Both jacket and pant use a Gore-Tex 45mm laminated outer shell and features direct-to-the-body vents on the chest and legs allow the body to cool. A removable thermal fleece acts as an insulating layer, trapping warm air, and can be used when not riding for a more casual look.

For the jacket, Nylon 6.6 abrasion resistance fabric with Armacor and Kevlar inserts are joined by a Level 2 pro-armor back protector and removable composite protectors at the elbows and shoulders. For the pant, identical fabric technology is partnered with removable Level 2 knee protectors and pro-armor hip protectors for the best in protection, anywhere, anytime.

The three-layer construction of the Dolomiti Gore-Tex jacket allows for four different configurations to suit every condition: full summer, rain, cold and winter. Warmer weather is tackled with front and rear vented panels, whilst a Gore-Tex inner membrane provides the best in waterproofing on rainy days. Inside, a removable thermal fleece insulates a riders body heat to keep them warm in cold conditions and can also be worn off the bike as a lighter individual layer.

The Dolomiti Gore-Tex pant includes vents located on the legs providing cooling air-flow in warmer weather and is paired with the same Gore-Tex membrane featured in the jacket to resist the worst of wet weather.

Both jacket and pant use Duratex Main Fabric and D-Stone to create a tough but supple exterior. Removable composite protectors are featured at the shoulder and elbow of the jacket, and also at the knee of the pant with pro-armor at the hips. Pockets for chest and back armor allow for additional protection if required.

A gear shifter guard provides a hard wearing surface for durability, with a differentiated rubber sole providing excellent grip in all weathers, both on and off the bike.
