Dainese Rhyolite Vest and Oak Pro Guards

Armor Sea Otter Classic

Italian brand Dainese had a booth at Sea Otter displaying some of their latest safety and apparel gear. We first saw the new Oak Pro guards at Interbike, they are now available for purchase at local Dainese dealers.

Also on display was the new Rhyolite Vest. It is the latest generation breathable vest, characterized by the use of a back protector in innovative “Crash Absorb” shape memory retention material (water-repellent elastic-visco nitrile rubber). The Rhyolite Vest might be a good option if you want protection that you can wear under your jersey or shirt. It protects the chest, kidney areas and back and the memory foam and rubber honeycomb sections are comfortable and pliable. Like all the latest Dainese armor, the Rhyolite is perforated for ventilation.

The Rhyolite has an MSRP of $199.95, comes in 6 sizes (XS, SM, MD, LG, XL, XXL) and will be available soon.

Dainese is long known for quality and innovation and these new products for 2012-and-a-half really reflect that. Their commitment to mountain biking is stronger than ever, sponsoring such riders as Mitch Delfs and Paul Basagoitia (who recently landed the first ever double backflip on natural terrain.)
