Saved my life
It has been 20 days since my crash on my 2012 R1. I had this jacket on with the Manis back protector insert. I can say with certainty that the jacket with the better back protector saved me from paralysis. I suffered 3 vertebrae fractures to my cervical, broke my right clavicle (the titanium shoulder piece ripped off), broke my right sides ribs and then had leg trauma (piercing through right knee). The jacket held up other then the titanium shoulder cup ripping off. The emt's did cut the jacket off, although it was not useable anymore anyway. I am alive and here to type out a review. I just ordered my replacement jacket a few minutes ago. All summer the perforated jacket made the heat bearable to ride in. I felt if it was just too hot to switch to mesh, then I just wouldn't ride. My regret was not having on leather pants. I had on Red Route jeans and the kevlar liner sheared my skin off in both knees, no road rash.

Got this jacket because I feel dainese has great protection and style note if wearing chest protector upsize one size for proper fit its skin tight

Being 6'2 190 the more race cut a jacket the better it fits. I purchased a 52 which should be perfect after the break in period. The open neck as opposed to the snap closure on the other dainese jackets helps with the overall comfort of the super speed. The airflow is really good and once in the tuck the faster you go the better the jacket performs. Great jacket from a great company.

I waited too long to take the jump.
Sizing, I’m 5’-8” tall 171 pounds. I am not athletically built. I am dough boy with a stomach. I measured a 50 cm chest. I ordered a size 52. The jacket fits very snug with the G2 back protector in. I don’t think the chest protector will fit in yet. I don’t have one to try. I believe I will have to loose about 10 pounds.
The sleeves are the right length for me. I now know they are also perforated. They force your elbows to be slightly bent. Which is a good thing to relieve pressure on the elbows. The sitting position on my bike is not aggressive like on a race replica (FZ-1). The jacket works just fine.
Styling, I got the white, white, anthwhatever. I thought the jacket would be too flashy for a 54 year old man. When I am wearing it. I couldn’t care less what anyone else might think. I feel like ten thousand bucks. It is very flashy. Very visible if you will. Feels great.
I almost bought the alien because I didn’t want a speed hump. No matter. I forgot all about the speed hump as soon as I received the jacket. The speed hump is of no consequence. Plus, I wanted the styling and the extra air flow the super speed C2 summer version provides. I’m glad I chose the super speed C2. It is super duper cool.
This is my first leather motorcycle jacket. The leather is nice and thick. I treated the jacket with leather conditioner as soon as I received it. It is breaking in like a glove. The armor is fitting in a way that I am confident it will stay in place if I end up on the pavement.
There is a small problem with this. I wear a long sleeve stay cool top. With a T shirt over to hide my flabby stomach. The sleeves from my T shirts are bunching up under my arm pits when I put the jacket on. I figure muscle shirts will fix this problem.
I can not open and close the air flow zippers on the fly. I have to pull over and take the jacket off. The collar is stiff. I got a boil on my neck from it poking. I have a fairly thin neck. It chokes just a bit.
I have read about the zippers getting stuck. I tried on a few corsa jackets and got stuck in a couple of them. The super speed C2 does not have that problem. If it did in the past. I assure you the problem has been fixed.
There used to be writing on the speed hump and on the strip of leather right bellow the shoulder pad. There is no writing there anymore. I was glad to see that. I want the space to personalize my jacket. Maybe it will help in the event of theft.
The bubble liner works great. The jacket is great. If you are reading this you already know which one you want. Just go for it. You wont regret it even when you are making the credit card payments. I sure don’t.

Dainese Flawless as usual
Had difficulty with sizing (too small) and had to exchange. Have been using for about 2 months now and I love this jacket, the price is steep but if it saves your life you can't put a price on that. The jacket is durable and stylish. One initial problem was the zipper and it would tend to get stuck on a piece of material designed to create a seal I think I thought my jacket was faulty (took 30 mins to take the jacket off I was afraid it was broke and I would have to cut it off which scared me since it was so expensive), ultimately I discovered you have to hold the base from the bottom when zipping up and put your hand on the top of the jacket near the zipper (and your chest) pushing away the flap when unzipping to prevent it from jamming now I can take it off no problem. After 2 months of riding I still love this jacket and it is holding up well.

Remar D:I think the only difference is the additional CE certification (CE Category II - 89/686/EEC Directive). Everything else is the same (aside from additional color options and the removal of the "RS Supersport" marking right under the aluminum shoulder insert.Oct 6, 2013
carlos z:Both look the same but if you put it in front of a light you can see the the perforations from the inside out. You have the perforated one for the summer time so you can get more air in (so your torso can breath) the other one is for using it when Is colder (I guess). If it's too cold one can just put a hoodie underneath (when using perforated) that way you don't feel too coldJan 23, 2015
Andrew R:I have the perforated jacket. Besides the front being perforated and other areas I Believe the jackets are identical. It breaths very well even on days of 80°+. You need to be going over 35-40 mph to really feel the air flowing. Once the jacket gets broke in its very comfortable. In the beginning something was tight and jabbing in the elbow area, but it went away after a few days and some good miles. Sleeves might be a touch shorter on this jacket compared to other brands so be aware if you have long arms for your body build. Overall great jacket and the Hi-Viz looks Sweet.Jan 23, 2015
Gregory C:The perforated jacket has a grid-work of small holes all through the leather body and sleeves for ventilation. It helps to keep you cooler when you're moving along. The jacket is not as breezy as a mesh jacket of course but it offers much better protection than a mesh jacket. When the temperature gets above 85 or so I zip the front down a little for more air flow. It's still pretty toasty when sitting in traffic here in Florida on a summer day though.Jan 24, 2015
Jarel C:The only difference is that the perforated one has a bunch of little micro holes in the chest area and part of the arms and back for better airflow. If you're in a warmer climate its nice to have the extra airflow to keep from getting so hot. Other than that, there's no other difference.Jan 23, 2015
Keith S:Perforated has tiny holes in the leather that supposedly makes it cooler. I got this one and ride it in 32 to 104 degree weather in utah. I love this jacket. Paired with the delta evo pants, I feel like crashing every day. Money well spent. Jan 23, 2015
Andrew B:I just got the jacket a couple of weeks ago and it's fantastic. The hump isn't so big that it gets in the way of a backpack. Worst case scenario you might have to open the shoulder straps on your pack a little so that the pack can sit a little lowr on your back and towards the bottom of the hump. But other than that you shoul dhave no problems. The hump actually, as it is designed to do, creates a small area of low pressure just behind it, i.e. right where the back pack will be. That means that the wind doesn't hit the pack. So in that way it actually works better with the pack.Apr 1, 2014
Gregory C:It might cause issues for you. I have not tried to wear a backpack while wearing my jacket yet but the hump is significant. To give you an idea about how large the hump is, I have had times when my helmet hits it when I have my head turned. A motorcycle specific back pack such as the ones made by Kriega may be OK since they sit a little lower on your back.Apr 1, 2014
Brandon N:I wear a Kriega R15 and R30 and I barely even notice it. It's not a very pronounced hump. It was much less convenient when riding with a standard school backpack, but loosening the straps fixed the issue.May 28, 2014
Guillermo G:Security is never a " bit much" . You always spend on your safety , you could fall in your garage or in the highway youll never know but you always need to have extra. I have that jacket And Im starting to ride a harley , my first Nike even ...it's too much for what Im doing ? Maybe ,..... But I feel more secure ...Jul 13, 2015
Diego B:just like previous answers, there is no "bit much" when talking about safety.
For the features and the looks, this is definitely a great jacket for weekend riding.
For commuting it all depends on your local weather. Where I live, only summer is predictable, on raining season we can have a clear sky on the morning and a complete storm by the end of the day, so a 4 season jacket is better in that situation (I have and recommend the Dainese D-Explorer).
I use this jacket for commuting on summer, it is amazing and let flow enough air to keep me cool (summer here is around 87F with high humidity 70% or more).
Devon S:Yes, the Dainese jacket-to-pants connection zipper is universal for at least the last 10 years, across all sizes. It's one length of zipper, so the amount it wraps around your waist will vary with size, but the zipper itself will be the same length.Jan 22, 2015
Guillermo G:Sorry but I really don't know because I drive a chopper and I use jeans... The jacket save me from fricción burns and collar bone trauma when I hit a wall ...so the jacket really worth itJul 2, 2014
Brandon N:It breathes well for leather. How hot is hot weather for you? I made it through a few low-humidity, mid-80's days, though I was sure to hydrate plenty and not sit still for too long. I don't think I'd wear it in those temps if expecting to sit around in traffic.May 28, 2014
