What can you say. Sometimes I notice it's there and others (while doing things I probably shouldn't) I don't feel it at all. Sure does make my jacket feel complete though. I have a dainese size 48 jacket and the G2 fits fine.

I bought these with the hard shorts to ride in under jeans. The knee guards really bulk up the legs and I'm on the smaller side and still felt that these fit rather small. I'm 5'8" 140lbs. I never felt like the fit was right and for casual protection they were way too intrusive. I'm not doing any thing crazy ie. stunting or really hitting the turns fast so IF YOUR IDEA IS TO GET THESE TO HIT UP YOUR LOCAL BIKE NIGHT AND JUST CRUSE AROUND they aren't really needed. Especially since the second you get off your bike they are very intrusive. I have the Dainses New Drake Air pants that have built in knee protection and I feel that the pants feel way more stable and protective than the guards under jeans.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I rode 550 miles in these one day. It was doable but opted not to ride in the shorts on the return. The cockix protection is the most noticeable part when riding. I keep expirementing on how high to pull up the shorts to fit and feal comfortable. I have some dainese New Drake Air pants that have some hip protection in and I like to wear them together. Over all, every time I put these on I figure it's better than nothing. That being said: I'm not sure how they would function in a crash, and let's hope I never find out.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dainese New Drake Air Textile Pants Drake pants will surely interest anyone who loves to ride his or her bike especially in the warmer months without wearing a suit or leather pants in order to obtain the protection required. These previously contrasting needs have now been perfectly reconciled by Drake fabric pants. Ample air vents in fretted fabric with closing on the thighs permit fresh air to enter during riding for cooling relief on even the hottest days. When temperatures begin to drop, the air vents can be closed. Safety is guaranteed by removable composite protections in the knee and shins, while extra-strength Cordura 750 fabric offers protection in case of fall. The elastic inserts in the knee optimise the wearability of the article, which is equally suited to metropolitan motorcycle use. Features Removable composite protectors. Cordura fabric 750. Suretta fabric. Perforated fabric. Insert in elasticated fabric. Soft inserts. Calf zip. Jacket-trousers fastening system. Adjustable waist. Sanityzed lining.

I Got these pants from a buddy. I'm 5'8 / 138lbs with a 29'" waist. The pants are size 48 and fit perfectly everywhere but the waist. I wouldn't want to go any smaller in size because the lenght would be too short and the legs would be too tight especially when sitting on the bike. I have a leather Dainese jacket in size 48 and they zip together perfectly ( I can even put them on independently then zip together ). Overall the price is just too steep for the fit that they offer. I'd expect better padding in the hips and knees for that price as well.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Dainese Ricochet Gloves Focus Comfort and technical content come together in this summer glove inspired by the Motard world designed for riders in search of safety and quality. Knuckles with carbon inserts with reinforcement ribbing, inserts in TPU on the little finger and thermoplastic resin inserts, and also the little finger side of hand and the reinforced palm ensure elevated safety levels. Correct ventilation is ensured on the back of the hand and inside the fingers even when temperatures rise. Great freedom of movement is achieved thanks to Dainese experience with ergonomics and the use of Microelastic elasticated inserts, elasticated fabric, and pre-curved fingers. Features Composite inserts in carbon fiber with ribbing on the knuckles with reinforced edge Inserts in thermoplastic polyurethane on the outside of the little finger Cowhide leather Stone PU Spandex fabric Reinforced palm One single leather panel to the size of the hand Adjustable cuff strap Inserts in elasticated fabric Elasticated inserts Pre-curved fingers Perforated back Perforation on the inner side of finger Soft inserts Microplastic elasticated inserts Please Note The Red in the Black/Lava Red/Black colorway is a much more vibrant red than it appears in the product photos.

Good gloves. Need lots of break in though and are really warm. Soo much leather that tends to bunch in the area where your fingers meet your hand (especially when wrapped around the grips.) I do have a feeling that these gloves are going to last an eternity and they do still fit under my jacket cuffs when riding. And I'd consider my arm lenght on the jacket short: meaning I would have expected the gloves to pop out of the sleeve occasionally, but they haven't.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've tried on a couple of Dainese jackets before. I felt like i was in between a 46-48 for leather. I'm 5'8" 140 and usually a 36/38 short suit jacket. I did measure my chest just at my nipples and was right at 37.75". I ordered this in a 48 and was initially a little concerned about how snug it was in the arms. I guess picking up my 2yr old 80,000 times a day gives the old pipes a work out. I tried it on with several articles of clothing before I rode in it. What convinced me in the end was that I could get a micro fleese under the jacket and still feel like I could ride in it. After a few rides the jacket is really starting to take it's shape for me. The padding does shift a bit but settles where it needs to be after a good ride. It is the vintage leather so it looks a bit different in person. I'd recommend this jacket for everyday riding protection and maybe some scattered track use in a pinch. The ultimate bonus is that I know absolutely no one in my area is going to be sporting this jacket and the black, white, magnesium is spot on for a new black with grey stripe Monster 1100 Evo.
Yes, I recommend this product.
