Most important Safety product after a helmet

Looks the business

When it arrived I thought, blimey that's substantial. Having a rigid outer shell I thought it might be a little uncomfortable, but once I was on the bike it was absolutely fine. As it's made in sections and held together with elastic straps, it is more flexible than the high impact foam ones in my other jackets. I have worn it for 4 or 5 hours with no issues, you don't really notice it. Hopefully it won't be put to the test for which it's intended, but looking at the way it's constructed, I think it will offer excellent protection. I have a few Dainese products and they have always been excellent quality. I would recommend it!

Never skimp on protection

This was a no brainer purchase for me, having a Dainese D-dry jacket, this D1 G back protector is a made to measure upgrade. It's CE2 rated which was the main reason for buying it - to replace the CE1 'foam pad' protector. I've always said, never skimp on protection, always check the armour in your jacket/trousers and upgrade to the highest level where you can. I also bought the optional Dainese chest protection for this jacket from sportsbikeshop. If you're unsure about armour/ratings etc the guys at sportsbikeshop will help you understand what armour is already in the item of clothing and what upgrade options you've got. With their price match, no quibble returns and excellent service why go anywhere else? Never skimp on protection. One day it could save your life.

Substantial back protector

A solidly made and yet flexible back protector which fits very well in my Dainese jacket (as you'd expect it too). Once the jackets on I've found that the protector is virtually undetectable and very comfortable.

Feels very stiff and sturdy

The armour looks like an armadillo. It inspires confidence in its ability to protect my back. It is slightly bendable so I don't feel completely stiff. I put this in my Racing 3 (ladies) jacket and it fits perfectly. However, it does make the jacket's shoulder armour squeeze in so my shoulders are in a bit of pain. I wear a Helite on top so that adds additional stress. I now wear Motogirl's back protector, which is CE Level 2 certified, but much softer. It also fits perfectly in my Racing 3 jacket. I kept the Dainese back protector for track days even though both Motogirl and Dainese offer CE Level 2 certified protection. I somehow have more confidence in Dainese's.

Fantastic Bit of (hopefully) Useless Kit!

I made use of the great price Sportsbikeshop have on these back protectors and decided to get a proper protector for my Dainese two-peice. Fits perfectly in the jacket (make sure you get the correct one for you jacket, male/female) Like I say hopefully I never have to use it but I feel much more confident on the road with it now Excellent next day service as expected with SBS (even delivered on a Sunday...)

Great Back Protector

Robustly built but still retains the flexibility to allow full body movement. Easy to fit inside the jacket.

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.
