The complete range of Dainese and AGV’s globally acclaimed gear are now in the city
They’ve been in the city for a good three months, but in the last few weeks, this niche store has initiated the biggest upgrade yet to their exclusive range of products. Dainese and AGV, the Italian manufacturers of protective biking gear and accessories,which has MotoGP legends like Valentino Rossi trusting them forsafety standards, now boasts their entire global range of products at their two-floored outlet in Egmore (their second in the country after Bengaluru), albeit with a few products like high-end jackets that are tailormade for the harsh winters of the West.
Instead, you will find lots of mesh in the jackets available at the D-Store (as it is called), suited for our summers. However, if you still want to sneak into the extra-layered jackets for a ride up North, you can purchase them online or request the store to import them, relieving you off duty charges.
Dainese’s airbag-fitted suits, called the D-Air, enjoy legendary status in MotoGP racing, and will enjoy even more prominence and attention in the 2018 season, when a new rule mandating every rider to be equipped with airbag suits gets implemented. For the new season, starting next month, the company has partnered with Sky Racing Team VR46 for the Moto2 and Moto3 races, and has also designed a special helmet for Rossi (themed on his hometown, Tavullia, Italy).
Back to the store, bikers will love to see the Axial Pro In boot (Rs 44,999). This, and their in-boot gloves, promise aerodynamic perfection to the T. Also on their racks are their protective plated-armour (Rs 34,999), apparel such as T-shirts, pants with QuickDry Fabric (Rs 19,999), accessories like key chains, and more.
