Proving that protection and waterproofness needn't be mutually exclusive, the CE-Certified Freeland has a breathable GORE-TEX membrane and Techno inserts on the knuckles. Other features include Smart Touch fingertips for use with touchscreens, and a Visor Wiper on the left thumb.
Microelastic Elasticated Inserts - Extensive research in ergonomics has paid off with this new Dainese patent filed to further increase riding comfort while keeping safety levels high at the same time. Bonding an insert in elasticated fabric beneath a panel in leather permits localized micro-elasticated areas where the body requires freedom of movement most while also increasing the area's abrasion resistance as well. This is achieved by reducing the number of panels and the stitches that connect them, while also keeping greater thickness in the panel itself than in traditional elasticated inserts.
