Dainese Manis D1 G Back Protector Insert

Perfect fit for Dainese Air Frame D1 Jacket

Bought this for a Dainese Air Frame D1 Jacket size 50. I was a little worried I should have ordered the smaller protector as the jacket is quite small but it fits perfect. I've used it a couple of times and I don't even notice it. The flexible design is one of the best features of this protector.

Quality Insert For Reasonable Money

The back protector itself is made of a strong plastic that is divided into sections and held together with an extremely strong good feeling bungee cord which allows it to move and bend whilst in a jacket with the person. There is a good 20mm of foam on the otherside of the protector which makes it very comfortable against your back and prevents it from digging in. Overall I'd say the price definitely justified the quality and protection that the back protector offers.

Great product

Good quality, replaces my know protector that I have worn for years. I was concerned that it wouldn't provide the same coverage and it would move around but it's fine in my textile jacket. The flex and movement the design gives is better than my old knox

In 1972 Mr Lino Dainese made some leather motocross trousers, starting a biking brand that has since brought style and innovation to motorcyclists the world over. Working with some of the most evocative names in motorcycle racing, Dainese led the way in the development of leather stretch panels, knee sliders and race suits- cut to suit the rider in a real world riding position. The 80's brought back protectors (with Barry Sheene), composite armour, and more aerodynamic suits; whilst the 90's brought gloves with knuckle armour and the first biking airbag system. Dainese remains at the forefront of motorcycle clothing technology and continues to be the brand of choice for the biggest names in bike racing, all the way up to the greatest rider of all time, Valentino Rossi. Today, Dainese is one of the most recognisable, coolest, and most aspirational motorcycle brands on the planet. With a well deserved reputation for safety that has crossed over into nearly every extreme sport there is, the name Dainese is synonymous with style, protection, comfort and durability.
