GET READY FOR SUMMER (THE WET ONE) WITH NEW RANGE FROM DAINESE

Dainese has the uncertain British weather covered with its waterproof collection. Ideal for a light rain shower or a heavy downpour, Dainese’s waterproof items are not just practical; they are also stylish, as expected from the Italian brand.

Suits you

The Hogan one-piece waterproof is a practical oversuit that comes with its own belted carry case, making it easy to take on rides ‘just-in-case’. Easy to slip over riding garments, the Hogan features a calf zip, front opening to the knee, and waist and wrist adjustments. Although a light item, which helps with drying time, the Hogan has a partially lined torso for a little extra warmth. The Hogan one-piece is available from £84.99 in sizes XS-XXL.

Another option is the Glasgow packable suit. Similar in style and practically to the Hogan, the Glasgow all-in-one offers perfect protection from the rain. Easy to wear with front opening to the knee, and neck, wrist and calf adjustments, it also comes in a handy carry case. Available from £101.99 the Glasgow packable comes in sizes XS-XXL.


Individual style

For those preferring a two-piece option, Dainese also offers a jacket and trousers combination, which can be worn together or individually to offer extra rain protection. These must-have items are waterproof, light and breathable and can be packed away into the most compact of luggage. The jacket has neck, wrist and waist adjustments and two waterproof outer pockets, while the trousers feature a drawstring waist and calf adjustments. Both the Dublin packable jacket and trousers are available from £58.99 in sizes XS-XXL.

Digit warmers

To keep yours hands warm in a storm, Dainese offers the Contact X-Trafit GTX glove, which has been designed by its R&D so they don’t slip on wet handlebars. Contact is ensured with Dainese’s X-Trafit™ technology where a Gore-Tex® membrane is glued directly onto the palm to avoid the internal padding slipping when the hand is twisting. As with all Dainese garments, protection is covered with carbon inserts on the knuckles and palm reinforcements. Goatskin leather makes the gloves flexible, and the waterproof Gore-Tex membrane keeps hands warm and dry. Available from £135.99 in sizes XS-XXL.

Bootylicious

To complete the waterproof collection, Dainese has footwear fit for the occasion. The TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex boot offers the practicality of a touring boot with the technology found in a sports boot. A breathable waterproof Gore-Tex membrane keeps toes warm and dry, while calf adjustments and D-stone fabric keeps everything comfortable. The boots offer Dainese’s D-Axial ankle anti-twist system, which stops the ankle from over-twisting in the event of an accident. They are available from £189.99 in sizes 39-47.

For a more casual look, is the SSC Bravo D-WP shoe, which is designed to fit around the foot as if wearing a sock, thanks to the soft leather and an elasticated insert. Not only practical wearing in warmer months, the SSC Bravo’s will keep feet warm and dry during winter riding with its waterproof D-WP insert. The shoes feature lace tie-ups and a Velcro strip to cover the top of the laces, to stop any unwanted un-tying. The SSC Bravo is available from £134.99, in black and white colours and sizes 37-46.
