The Dainese Gore-Tex Stradon D1 offers all the technology and know-how of Dainese in terms of protection and comfort for a top product in its touring range. If you are someone who travels great distances or keeps riding in winter, this is your jacket. And this time we present it along its perfect complement: the Dainese Lontan D1 Gore-Tex pants, designed to protect us from the cold and rain on longer routes.

Dainese Stradon D1 Gore-Tex
The Stradon jacket is made from highly resistant Cordura with S1 elastic fabric inserts in areas requiring more mobility and cow leather inserts on both elbows and back, in order to increase abrasion resistance at these critical points. Merged within there’s Gore-Tex Pro, a waterproofed and highly breathable membrane that offers protection against wind and rain so necessary in winter. And inside, we have a removable thermal liner and a 3D-Bubble fixed lining fully ventilated and with Sanitized treatement which offers antibacterial properties.

Stradon general view, featuring  zippers and buttons, the removable collar and protections.

Among Stradons D1’s many elements what differentiates this jacket from other rivals are details like the double removable neck, so we have two different necks where we can extract both the inner collar (buttons adjusted) and outer (zippered) for regulating the jacket’s inner temperature to the different climating changes. The jacket also has two front entrances and two rear vents with zipper.
As for protection, the Stradon features Dainese’s aluminum insert pads on co-injected plastic along with elbows protectors and a Wave G2 level 2 back protector (the most effective level). There is also room for a Dainese Double Chest protector, which also comes standard with the jacket. Threfore, the jacket features a very high protection level jacket.

Chest protectors compartment close up that houses a Bio Armor Chest that comes standard with the jacket.

We have two front pockets and one large rear pocket, all waterproofed and zippered and a flap with snap closure on top. We find another zippered pocket and one located on the removable lining, with velcro clousure. As a final complement, we have two further mesh pockets on both sides of the rear pocket.
The details of this jacket are also Premium: anti-floating sleeves, thermal liner hand gaiters improving the insulation; double zipper main closure main plus sleeve zippers and lateral belt for a better fitment of the jacket. Finally, note the reflective strips for improved visibility in low light conditions and an inner pants connecting zipper .

Dainese Lontan D1 Gore-Tex pants
If we go to pants Lontan D1 Gore-Tex, we see that shares many elements with the jacket Stradon D1, specially in materials: Cordura as main fabric, bi-elastic S1 fabric inserts and cow leather in the knees, with the same waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex Pro membrane and a removable thermal lining and other on fixed, the last fully ventilated and with Sanitized tratement. To improve the fit, pants include removable straps with zipper, hip belts and zippers on leg’s ends.

The pants multiple zippers allow for an optimal comfort and ventilation.

In its construction, the two air inlets are located on the front and also have zippers. Right on the sides are two zippered pockets. There are removable composite protectors on the knees and soft Pro-Shape protectors on the hips. The Lontan D1 is the perfect complement to the D1 Stradon jacket as they match perfectly, even in the color tone.

As we have seen, both Stradon D1 jacket and Lontan D1 pants form the top of the line of  Dainese’s touring range as features all the know-how from the Italian manufacturer in the segment. Both are designed to provide full protection and ergonomics, even in subzero temperatures. A multitude of details to win comfort are included and, together, both products form an exceptional set for long journeys. And if complemented with Latemar boots from the brand, nothing is going to stop you this winter from riding your bike.
