Dainese was established in 1972 by Lino Dainese, a 24-year-old motorcycle enthusiast driven by unbounded curiosity, a constant desire to experiment and a strong interest in contemporary art and design.
Dainese offers two levels of body protection. The Alter Real waistcoat is the preffered choice of protection for many showjumpers. This waistcoat offers protection to the back and in particular the spine area. It is very low profile and sits well underneath a show jacket offering protection without the bulk of a traditional body protector. Please note that this body protector is not BETA level 3 and therefore cannot be worn when eventing.
The Dainese Balios is a BETA level 3 body protector and is suitable for all equestrian discplines.
