Dainese Brings Dakar Rally Style To The Utilitarian Moto Jacket

May 10, 2019

Category: Gear

When it comes to purposeful, protective motorcycle outerwear, Dainese has graced the industry with a handful of competitive offerings. Now, thanks to the rise of stylistic options that are as formidable as they are functional, the renowned gear manufacturer has introduced its very own Alger Nomad Tex motorcycle jacket — a sleek, attractive garment that puts your safety at the forefront.

The Alger Nomad Tex integrates some of today’s most trusted protective fabrics, including Nemes textile, Cowhide suede inserts, and mesh fabric to keep everything flowing smoothly. A utilitarian-inspired exterior boasts Trixivent back construction for improved airflow, a cargo pocket for item storage, and removable patches that can be swapped out for any personalized, Velcro-capable variant. Better yet, the Alger Nomad is built to the industry’s highest standards — obtaining a prEN 17092 protective certification that’s only bestowed upon the two-wheeled medium’s highest performing outerwear. The jacket is available on Dainese’s website, with three different options from which to choose — Textile, Leather, and Dunes.
