Borgo Panigale (Bologna, Italy), 16 February 2021 - Ducati is continuing its commitment to the safety of motorcyclists, which is reflected in the adoption of the best devices available on the market. In addition to the development of active safety systems on its motorcycles and the promotion of responsible riding courses, the Bologna-based company is also paying great attention to the clothing offered and, in collaboration with Dainese, now presents Ducati Smart Jacket: an innovative and revolutionary sleeveless vest which uses the well-known D-air® airbag technology of Dainese in a version with graphics made specifically for Ducati.
The operation of the vest is regulated by the electronic control unit which analyses the data 1,000 times per second. In cases of intended engagement*, the electronic control unit detects autonomously dangerous situations such as sliding, high-siding of a rider, rear-end collision, impact with another object or stopped-vehicle impact, and activates the rider's protection system.
Thanks to the vest structure with internal micro-filaments patented by Dainese, the airbag bag inflates in a uniform and controlled way along the entire surface, creating a shield that wraps around the body and guarantees the protection of the declared protective areas. The bag offers protection equal to that of seven level 1 back protectors, without having any rigid protector inside.
Ducati Smart Jacket is an extremely light and practical garment, which, once you get off the bike, can be easily folded and stored in a side bag or backpack. It has a 26-hour battery life and, when discharged, can be conveniently recharged via any USB socket. In addition, another technological innovation introduced by Dainese allows the protective bag on the chest to be folded, to occupy a smaller area and thus allow the passage of air through the fabric of the vest.
Further information on the Ducati Smart Jacket is available on the Ducati.com website. On the YouTube channel of the Borgo Panigale company there is also a video showing the features and practicality of the new vest.
* Warning: before purchasing and using Ducati Smart Jacket, carefully read the instructions and warnings indicated in the user manual, its operating characteristics and protective performance.
