In honour of its 40th anniversary, Dainese has launched “Dainese 40”, a free app for iPad and iPhone as a Christmas gift, to celebrate its history of protection for motorcyclists.

The archive at Dianese's headquarters in Vicenza houses leather suits dating back to the company's earliest days of development, right up to the present day. Most people will never see this room but now, thanks to the dedicated app, its digital doors will open.

The app will give motorcycle fans the chance to look back over Dainese's history and see its evolution of protection over the years. From the first back protector and knee sliders to the present and the D-air Racing airbag suit.

Race fans can also check out the suits of the motorcycling legends that Dainese has protected over its 40-year history, including Agostini, Sheene, Roberts, Schwantz, Rossi and many, many more.

The app for iPad is available now for free on iTunes; the app for iPhone will be available very soon.
