Dainese USA Custom Works Tour Scheduled

(Press release edited by WebBikeWorld) - Dainese USA announced a 17-stop nationwide tour for custom-made leather garments.

This is the fifth annual North American Custom Works Tour, which starts in New York City and will visit a total of 17 locations across the U.S. and Canada, providing customers opportunities to be measured for custom-made Dainese leather motorcycle apparel.

In 1972, Dainese began making high-quality custom leather motorcycle garments for legendary racers like Giacomo Agostini in Molvena, a small Italian village in a region renowned for its leatherworking tradition.

The program was eventually extended to European retail customers, and the North American Custom Works program started in 2012.

All three North American Dainese D-Stores now employ Italian-trained tailors who can take the 26 measurements needed to create a Custom Works garment.

One-off fitting events are occasionally organized at other shops, but the Custom Works Tour is a chance for customers to be professionally fitted at locations that don’t typically offer that service.

This marks Dainese’s most extensive Custom Works tour to date, with six more stops than last year’s successful initiative.

Four different levels of customization are available, from aesthetically altered off-the-rack apparel to completely custom garments with unlimited add-on logos, names, numbers and/or color ways, etc.

Following a fitting, a design is created and the garment is hand-built in Molvena by the same tailors who work on the suits of sponsored Dainese racers like Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden.

In addition to racing suits, the Custom Works program offers custom leather jackets and leather pants.

“We’re really excited to see Dainese’s North American Custom Works Tour gaining such momentum,” said Allan Jones, North American Custom Works Coordinator for Dainese.

“Honestly, no other company comes close to offering such an extensive program for motorcycle apparel that is one-of-a-kind in terms of both fit and appearance, and now is the perfect time for customers to be personally fitted in order to have their garments ready for the 2017 riding season.”

Dainese’s 2016 North American Custom Works Tour includes the following stops:

• Sep. 30-Oct. 2 New York, NY
• Oct. 3 Montreal, Canada
• Oct. 4 Montreal, Canada
• Oct. 5-6 Toronto, Canada
• Oct. 7-9 Leeds, AL (Barber Festival)
• Oct. 11 Dallas, TX
• Oct. 13 Salt Lake City, UT
• Oct. 14-15 Denver, CO
• Oct. 16 Costa Mesa, CA
• Oct. 18-19 Portland, OR
• Oct. 21 Vancouver, Canada
• Oct. 22-23 Vancouver, Canada
• Oct. 25-26 San Francisco, CA
• Oct. 28-29 Chicago, IL
• Oct. 30 Detroit, MI
• Nov. 3 Belleville, NJ
• Nov. 5 Derry, NH

The number of fitting sessions available at each tour stop is limited, so interested customers should contact Dainese early.

(Press release edited by WebBikeWorld) Davida UK Ltd will be releasing a new road-legal version of their Speedster helmet at Intermot in Cologne 5-9th October 2016.

Dual marked with ECER22-05 & DOT FMVSS No 218, the New Speedster v3 retains all the features of their original Speedster helmet with the same low profile shell shape and an improved traditional leather lined interior which can now be removed for cleaning or replacement.

Replacement leather liners are available in black, brown or nut brown colours.

Davida MD David Fiddaman says:

"The technical team at Davida UK has put all of its 40 years manufacturing experience into our latest road-legal helmet, the Davida Speedster v3. So we are very excited to be revealing this new product at Intermot 2016 in Koln, a show and a city that both have great significance for our development as a company since the early 1980s."

Fiddaman explains,

"We have greatly advanced the way we manufacture GRP composite helmet shells in order to retain the same low profile shape so that the Davida Speedster v3 now satisfies the demands of the highest modern ECE R22-05 & DOT safety standards."

The Davida Speedster V3 features:

- 3 shell sizes that allow 6 helmet sizes from XS (54) to XXL (61)
- Traditional low profile GRP Composite shell.
- Polystyrene shock absorption liner.
- Removable and replaceable, full leather lined interior.
- Optional studs for fitting visors and peaks.

The new Speedster v3 fulfils Davida's long-held ambition to produce a road-legal version of its Speedster, a jet-style helmet with a 26-year heritage that is highly evocative of the 1970s.

The result is certified for road use within the majority of countries covered by the Davida global dealer network.
