Settantadue is Italian for “72.” Fun to say, hard to spell, it’s a reference to 1972—the year Lino Dainese founded a company to make leather riding pants for himself and his friends.
From humble beginnings the company has built a legacy through making race leathers and performance protective equipment festooned with its trademark Demon logo.
With the new D72 line, Dainese has managed to subdue it’s normally over-the-top branding without losing any of its shameless Italian swagger.
Aesthetic aside, the details of this line hold up. Aramid fiber stitching in all the gloves, old-school mechanically perforated leather paneling, flexible and protective Pro-Armor inserts included in all the jackets.
Speed, Safety, Style. The Settantadue collection checks all three.
