Air Wars: Dainese vs Alpinestars

Dec 29, 2015 - 12:53 PM - by NickJ

Motorcycles are inherently dangerous and riders are only allowed so much protection from the gear that we choose to place on our bodies. Dainese has always been an innovator when it comes to motorcycle safety. They were the first to incorporate back protectors into the leather pajamas that early motorcycle racers wore in the late 70's, and more recently they were the first to dream up the incorporation of airbags into jackets and race suits in 1995 and then implement them for testing in 2000.

As is the way when you have a good idea, others latch on like a bunch of lampreys and suck the life right out of it. There is a bit of a legal battle over the patents of the use of airbags in motorcycle gear. Alpinestars and Dainese are currently engaged in a he-said-she-said over the patents. Dainese holds several patents and had issued a cease and desist to certain German retailers of Alpinestars Tech-Air systems. AStars tried to get ahead of the news publicly by issuing a statement to the press essentially stating that the cease and disist had been issued, but not a legal action. Thus leaving readers to infer that they had done nothing legally wrong.

Dainese, this morning, offered a formal response to this statement setting the record straight. There were two injunctions levied against AStars by the German court stating that the Tech-Air systems infringe upon two of the Dainese European patents. There is an additional lawsuit seeking damages and the halt of commercialization of the Tech-Air system in Germany.

Pikes Peak's sportbike ban cripples motorcycle competition

Dec 18, 2015 - 5:13 PM - by DrumsOfGrohl

New rules have been created to stop sportbikes from climbing Pikes Peak!

These regulations were in place back in 2010, which stated that only bikes with a one-piece handlebar would be allowed on the Peak.

The rule goes as follows:
Only motorcycles manufactured with one piece handle bars as original equipment will be permitted. Only OVM one-piece handlebars will be permitted. This Rule does not apply to bikes in the Pikes Peak Challenge Sidecar Class.

As far as context, the last two events have featured one death each. Bobby Goodin was killed after crossing the finish line in 2014 in a Triumph Daytona 675R, and Carl Soresen drove his Ducati 848 off a cliff last year.

The move to ban certain bikes using the criteria of handlebars seems arbitrary, and has been the subject of much debate in the racing community. Jeremy Toye, the 2014 champion, was quite vocal about this.

"The handlebars didn't cause those deaths, and the handlebar isn't going to reduce speed," Toye told RoadRacingWorld.com. "A motorcycle produced with a one-piece handlebar isn't designed for optimum handling, shall we say, and the conditions at Pikes [Peak] are pretty intense so you need the best-handling situation you can get whether it's the handlebars or an air bag or a fuzzy seat. I think it's ridiculous. The handlebar has nothing to do with [safety]."
