Dainese looks back with new vintage-style line

Dainese, the maker of premium safety wear for motorcyclists since 1972, has unveiled a new line of vintage-look Speed Leather jackets that embody the Italian style and heritage of the company’s original racing suits. 

Called Dainese Settantadue – the Italian word for 72 – the Speed Leather jackets incorporate the latest safety features while staying true to the period look that inspired them.

“Dainese Settantadue is our contemporary interpretation of the history of riding wear,” Cristiano Silei, chief executive of Dainese, said in a news release.

The jackets for men and women are available in three distinctive styles: Freccia 72 with the company’s twin horizontal-band design; Toga 72, which channels the details and cuts of the originals; and Rapide 72, referencing Dainese’s racing history with functionality and advanced technology. 

“The Speed Leather range focuses on the importance and love of the leather jacket, jackets that hark back to the racing suits that Dainese produced at the start of its journey,” the company says. “Staying true to Italian heritage, the jackets are the epitome of style, beauty and effortless elegance – while incorporating the latest safety technology.”
