    Nico Cereghini, journalist and former rider, takes us into the world of materials, from Dainese leathers to fabrics and waterproof membranes. Leather, used in motorcycle garments since the birth of the discipline, is still the best material for track and sports use today. It boasts unbeatable abrasion resistance and flexibility. Fabric, on the other hand, is suitable for those who use motorcycles to travel or get around the city, due to its unrivaled comfort. Gore Tex® and D-dry® waterproof membranes offer excellent protection against atmospheric agents, without sacrificing breathability.
