As retailer of the year, we feel it's our duty to constantly better our offering and if you have any ideas, we'd love to hear from you!

Simply relax, take your time and make sure it's right! All we ask is that you try the items within your own home and return with the tags intact.

Customer Reviews for Dainese Manis D1 G Back Protector Insert

Dainese Manis D1 G Back Protector Insert
July 23, 2020

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.

Premium back protector

This is a top quality back protector, it fits to the curve of your back & flexes with you when you move, The protector is quite thick so if your jacket is a really neat fit I would try one before you order online.

Producto de calidad

Buen producto aparentemente, aunque espero no tener que comprobar su eficacia. Protege una amplísima zona de la espalda. Algo justo para encajar en una talla 50.

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.
