Dainese AWA Black Commuter Collection

Dainese AWA Black Commuter Collection

Italian Style for On and Off the Bike

The 2019 Bike collection by Dainese enters the world of urban commuting with AWA Black, a dedicated line evolved from the AWA “All Weather Activity” technological platform, launched by the Vicenza Italy-based brand in 2017.

AWA Black is the new Dainese Bike line designed to tackle the daily challenge of traffic whatever the weather conditions. It retains high technical content and combines it with a subtle look suitable for all types of use, not only bicycle-related. The AWA Black layering system makes use of innovative materials deriving from the racing world, which ensure very high-level performance in terms of waterproofing, insulation against atmospheric agents and comfort. Each piece is enriched with high-visibility details: reflective inserts for the brand-new Poncho and 3L Jacket, and brightly colored details for the other pieces in the collection. Safety and practicality are guaranteed by the numerous pockets, ideal for holding all the key accessories that today's commuter cannot do without.

Dainese Art Director Renato Montagner explains the new line: “We have designed a collection of garments that, though designed to offer maximum comfort while riding, have an essential formal language. The performance of the garment is ensured through the cut and materials, without becoming too evident. A collection with a functional design, where functionality is translated into aesthetics, designed for those who use the bicycle for low environmental impact mobility.”
