DAINESE LAUNCH NEW TOURING HELMET FOR 2012
Dainese revealed its new clothing collection for the forthcoming year at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan last week. Amongst the extensive collection of leather suits, jackets, boots, gloves, and of course the D-air Street project, a new helmet was also launched.
The DA 530 is predominately a touring helmet crammed full of features, as one would expect from the Italian brand. The shell is constructed by composite fibre, which gives a resistant yet lightweight structure. Ventilation is covered with vents on top of the helmet, at the back and a tilting vent on the chin.
The vents on the top of the helmet are completely adjustable, and allow maximum airflow to the head. Dainese has created a new visor mechanism that ensures a wider field of vision, and has an easy operating system, even whilst wearing gloves. The visor and internal sunshield are anti-scratch and have been treated with an anti-fog coating.
To ensure a comfortable fit, the helmet comes with 3D concave liners, which allow fit adjustment when the surface is in direct contact with the head, and can be moulded into shape. The helmet is fully compatible with Dainese’s Bluetooth system D-Phono, and can be purchased separately to the helmet.
Other features of the DA 530 include:
Double D-ring fastening, removable nose guard, removable windbreak and a bag to store safely away when not in use. Available in two shell sizes, the weight of the small shell size is 1.450g and the large 1.530g.
Available in various colours and sizes XXS – XL the DA 530 is priced at £299.99.
