    by Kevin Shiramizu Dainese is no stranger to the safety game. They’ve got plenty of experience making very high end protection for people who do stuff arguably more dangerous than pedaling bikes. So where have they been lately? Back when I started taking riding more seriously, the Viking knee/...

    by Mihai Moga It’s a great time to be a mountain biker. Recent innovations in the sport are simply amazing, and they’ve come in almost every facet, including body protection. There are several companies making body armor these days so finding suitable protective gear shouldn't be a problem. If...

    The Good:

    Light weight compared to other protection jackets, fit is exceptional, you can remove the back protector and just wear that or wear the jacket without the back protector, easy to wash, thumb straps keep jacket in place better, shoulder pads are in the perfect position when you fall, durable construction, very breathable.

    The Bad:

    Very expensive but it is a dainese afterall, forearm straps are too long and keeps it too loose in the arms, kidney belt rides up to your ribs when you ride, difficult to wear with a neck brace.

    Overall Review: This is a classic protection jacket from Dainese and hasn't changed too much over the years but if you got it right why mess with success. If its a light trail day you can just wear the back protector and it fits great OR you can wear the rest of the armor without the back protector (not sure wh...

    The Good:

    Great hard shell protection, they hinge above the elbow so they move WITH your arm, three straps that keep them in place without cutting off the circulation, can wear with or without a jersey, they are R and L specific so they are even more molded to your arm which helps them stay in place

    The Bad:

    Very expensive for elbow pads but they are Dianese afterall, they don't cover all the way down to the wrist like some elbow pads do, the sizing is very weird on them so make sure you try them on before buying (again because they are made by Dianese and all their products are sized funny)

    Overall Review: Most body armor jackets that I have worn seem to have great protection except for the elbow pad part. So to try and remedy that one year I used a body armor vest and separate elbow pads to keep things lighter and hopefully improve the fit since most jackets that combine the two don't work that w...
