Dainese Super Speed Textile Jacket 4.8 5 88 88
Stylish, versatile jacket with excellent fit and air flow Size 50 Red/White/Black 5'11" Slim Build I bought this jacket back in August of 2014 and rode throughout the end of the Georgia summer and even into mid-November. Overall, the jacket performs the best between 65-85 deg. fahrenheit with great venting with the liner out and sufficient wind protection with the liner in. I'd definitely recommend this jacket for anyone who likes the sporty look along with a nice tailored cut. Stick around for a more detailed breakdown of each category. Bang For the Buck 5/5 I think this jacket is an awesome value especially for how long I've stretched its use. It is definitely a warm weather jacket, no doubt about that. It works quite well in the warm but with the attached windproof liner in, it can stretch into colder temps as well. With a PUMA track jacket or fleece vest underneath, I feel warm enough to ride on mornings as cold as 50 deg. Overall, I've gotten a ton more use of this jacket than I thought. Style 5/5 I love the style of this jacket. It's sport and aggressive enough without going too over the edge. I think it fits in great with the sportbike look, but I bought it to go along with my white FZ-07 (white bike, white/red/black color jacket). I've gotten a ton of complements on it and it pairs really well with the New Drake Air pants and D6 riding jeans. The fit is pretty snug. I'm 5'11" with a slim/athletic build and it fits like a nicely tailored jacket or shirt. Even so, there is still a tiny bit of room to layer underneath. Comfort 5/5 The mesh outer liner is quite good at wicking away sweat, and keeping skin reasonably dry. The armor in the arms and elbows is perfectly sized for me and I can bend my arms without anything getting in the way. I also use the Wave G2 back protector and there's enough room for that without it feeling tight as well. The bottom of the jacket on the waist also has those adjustable pulls that give you a little extra room if you're layering as well. Great design. Protection 5/5 I can't speak to the crash protective elements of the jacket yet, but I feel very confident that it will protect me in a crash. I love the aluminum shoulder pieces and all of the armor is very comfortable and stays in place, even with the extra Wave G2 back protector. Air Flow 4/5 As a textile/mesh hybrid, the jacket does quite well in the hot weather, but does have some limitations. The chest mesh flows a ton of air, but the arms leave a bit to be desired. My arms were always the most sweaty after a hot ride, mostly on the outer area where the armor lives. That's to be expected though, so all-in-all it does a great job of flowing air. The included windproof liner does a pretty good job of keeping wind out when it gets cooler, but it still can get a bit chilly. It really isn't a problem though, because that's taking the jacket a bit out of its designed range, so it only adds to the value. Features 3/5 The features on the jacket are pretty minimal, but that's to be expected of a simple jacket. The the two outer pockets do their job and the interior pocket (which I think is actually supposed to hold a chest protector) is convenient for ear plugs and even trips to CVS for shampoo. Overall, I love the jacket and can't wait to keep using it next summer. November 13, 2014
Great product, but... The fit is great, but i think its a bit too short, every time i´m on the road i have to pull over and pull the jacket from my back. The style is great (I bought tjhe white/red) and very good protection. November 11, 2014
awesome street jacket. I haven't ridden on the street for many years so when I started again I really only wanted leather, as I didn't trust the protection of textile. Then Bob at the Gear Boutique recommended this jacket and I could not be happier that I took his advice. It saved me a ton of money over comparably featured leather, it looks great and has all the protection of my old leather and then some. It's incredibly light and comfortable, and just tight enough that all the armor lands just where I need it while still letting me move around on the bike however I need to. The only drawbacks so far have been that it's a bit short but that does seem to be the same with all of the sport riding jackets available now (like I said over been away from the sport for a minute), and while the airflow is amazing in warm weather, the windbreaker liner could really stand to be a bit more substantial to be effective for evenings and cooler days. These are really minor issues though as overall this is a fantastic jacket and some of the best money I've ever spent on gear. November 3, 2014
Great Jacket that moves air well First off this jacket gets compliments everywhere with the white and red accents I have on mine. It is very comfortable to wear and moves air very well but i think it does a better job when in a more upright position as opposed to being in a more sporty like tuck. I HATE the collar that snaps into place on this jacket. It is always biting into my neck making it uncomfortable to wear. It moves air pretty well and I am comfortable. I found it just a tad bit loose around my chest but the arms and bottom a perfect fit. I bet I will like the looseness when winter finally gets to TX. Overal I recommend this jacket even at it's steep price the quality is obvious. October 27, 2014
Fits better than a glove on a small frame This is my first jacket and instantly my favorite. I live where the weather is hot to warm almost all year round, so the mesh panels definitely allow for a decent amount of airflow, and when things get a little chilly, I can put the removable liner to reduce some of that airflow to my body. I'm a small guy, I'm 5'5" and I weigh about 125 with boots on, so I got a size 44, and it fits perfect. October 9, 2014
Great Jacket Jacket is great. I don't have the problem with the collar like some others that have left a review. i guess it is just the matter of how people are built although for a product that cost this much and the company that represents it it should not have been a problem like that for nobody. the jacket is very stylish and it fits me nice and snug. it is light and it does have good airflow. not to many complaints except one problem for me is that the inside layer of the sleeves does come out every time i put my jacket on and its annoying when you have to try to pull it back inside. October 1, 2014
High-Quality Textile; High-Quality Price First, I will address sizing. I'm 5'8 and about 145 lbs. I purchased a size 48 and it fits snug, but comfortable. Being that it is a euro cut it is designed to fit tightly against your body which is great for people with smaller or more athletic builds. This type of cut removes a lot of bulk and bunching certain builds can get with some of the American cut brands. It's a Dainese jacket which almost universally means two things: high-quality and high-price. This jacket is no exception. The build quality feels high-end, the armor stays in place, and adding sliders on a textile jacket was a bold and unique move. I've ridden about 1200 miles with the jacket so far and I've yet to have any of the mesh fray which is a good sign. Aesthetically, I personally like the design and color options. I got the black/white/red to go with my black and red helmet. It's a pretty aggressive look, especially with the shoulder sliders, so if you are looking for a jacket that is a bit more subtle or casual the design might be a bit too sporty for you. The airflow is above average and it flows about as well as you can expect from a textile jacket. It's got a bit of mesh on the front of the jacket, on the inside of the arms, and an enormous panel of it along the entire back. The large amount of mesh on the back exhausts heat very well, but it is also the most vulnerable part of the jacket in the event of a crash. For that reason it is recommended to grab the back protector to beef it up a bit. It does come with a windproof liner for those cold mornings and to be able to stretch the jacket into the fall. This is my only jacket right now so I plan on using it all the way into the early winter until I have to put the bike in storage for the season. For as much air as it flows I'm hoping with the windproof liner and some warm base layers the colder temps wont be an issue. My only complaints with this jacket are probably the collar and the price. The collar isn't horrible but if it was lined with something like neoprene it would be more comfortable for those longer rides. As far as the price is concerned, its pretty expensive for a textile jacket. It's got Dainese build quality and a few nice extras like the aluminum sliders, but I still don't know if the price is warranted. For only a bit more money you can actually get a decent leather jacket, so consider exactly what you are looking for before pulling the trigger. Overall, its a great high-end textile jacket with an aggressive design and a handful of features. September 8, 2014
It is a good jacket overall I originally tried on this jacket at Dainese Store in Chicago. I am 5'9 and 180lb. I tried on 50 but was too loose while size 48 was too tight. They were both made in Tunisia. I then went to Cycle Gear and tried on size 50 (made in Armenia), the one they have in stock was a perfect fit. All the armors are at the right place for my body. The airflow is great as long as you are moving and the liner help take the morning chill off my body. The only negative I can think of is the cuff. It is hard to put a Held Gauntlet (size 8) over the sleeve because of the bulk from using the second slap. Otherwise, it is a very good jacket. September 6, 2014

Derek C: Brand reputation, style, features, purpose of jacket. Great looking jacket with protection inside. Fan of Dainese products Jul 16, 2014
Tom S: Dianese....they are the best. I have an AVRO C2 Leather Jacket and the protection it provides is unmatched. However, it's way too hot even with the insert out. Riding with my other brand mesh/textile jacket makes me feel unprotected. I'm hoping this jacket, though textile/mesh, will come with the fit, comfort, and protection I've come to expect from Dianese. I wanted the AVRO Textile Jacket to match my AVRO Leather but unfortunately with the sale.....they are out of my size. Boo Hoo Jul 2, 2014

Robert P: I loved the leather jacket so much that I wanted to get the textile version for summer riding. May 11, 2014
DAVID W: I wanted a jacket that had better airflow for hot summer riding but didn't want to sacrifice safety/protection for it. Having owned serveral different Dainese jackets in the past (Flash 2 & Bora), I'm familiar with their quality and level of protection.

Patrick B: Hello, I got the Dainese protector and rode with it for a week through the blue ridge. The protection feels great and having it fit into the jackets pocket, even if it is only in one side, makes it extremely handy for securing it in place while riding and then easy to remove. I'd also looked at other options however am please with my choice. Aug 5, 2014

Dane P asked: How water resistant/waterproof is this jacket guys? I live in the UK so I get a pretty cold and wet winter and need a new jacket after my Nitro N-85 has failed after 12 years.

Francis M: Hi Dave - I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada, so trust me when I say I know about rain. This jacket is fine for light rain, but anything more than that I would say get something different.

I have been riding 20 years, had 14 different bikes (harley's sport bikes, sport tourers, bla bla bla............). When it comes to rain, I've found only one solution. A compact rain jacket. I've turned over so many pieces of gear over the years, I hope my wife never adds up all the expense.

Vented 2-piece races leathers, and carry Rev'It's compact rain jacket in tank bag or tail pack. For my hands, good old rubber gaunlet gloves over top my race gloves. Guaranteed dry, and I can still feel the handlebars.

Santiago N: You would get wet since the Jacket it's not waterproof. In the event of light rain maybe you wouldn't get wet but in case of medium to heavy rain, you would for sure. I suggest buying the revit H20 Rain Suit along with this jacket, it's my usual setup and works out great.

It comes on and off easily and not even a drop gets through. Since you live in a place where it rains a lot you will use the suit.

SAHIL P: Hey Hulk,

In my opinion, possibly but it depends on what size you go with. If your chest is wide, and your arms proportionately a bit longer for your height, you might be able to size up. The arms do fit snug, but they feel more snug in the forearm area than in the biceps. I think its to help keep the pre-formed curve to the arms. I'd figure out what size suit jacket fits you well, and try to translate that into a coat size for this.

Ian B: A test fit will be the real decider. But I'm of a similar build. I wear a 56 in pure leather (Santa Monica) but sized down to a 54 in the Shotgun textile- The shotgun and it would seem this have a fair amount of stretch material all over which let if fit very snugly, but not uncomfortably at all.

I'd guess a 56 should be a good fit.

Rodger J: I have a similar build, and the sleeves are narrower, but it's not uncomfortable. I wear a 54, and overall it's good for me. I think if I went to 56 it might have worked, but I didn't want it loose fitting either. If your chest is above average in size, that too might be pretty snug. Jan 10, 2014

Matthew G: The arms are quite snug. Especially in the forearm. I am 6'2" 190lbs, average build, and were the size 52 and it fits me just snug enough to not let the pads move around but I suspect that this will be too tight on you if you have developed arms. Jan 7, 2014

TRUONG P: I am also 5'9 and a gym rat but I am only 170lbs but very big biceps. The jacket fits me pretty well and snug around the arms. My arms around is 14" around straighten and relax. The jacket has about 1-2 inches more before its really tight. Jan 7, 2014

Alexandre L asked: Hi, I want to buy this jacket but I cant get my mind on choosing either the size 52 or 54... I'm in qc/canada and the weather here gets cooler quicker so i want to be able to put a sweatshirt under it.. At the store i was only able to testt the dainese jackets with the Laguna seca model.. does this one fit almost the same or is it bigger/smaller ? i'm 6foot tall, 175 pounds and have real long arms lol... thank you Apr 20, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David K: Well hopefully I can help some. Like you I have long arms. I am 6' tall 198lbs and muscular. I went with size 58 and is just right with a T-shirt or something light.
I suggest you buying the 54 as I know cool weather as I am from Minnesota. I have the same jacket in leather as well. The reason I do not need to bulk up under my textile jacket.
The one thing I have to say; is that I loved the leather so much that I had to have the textile as the fit was perfect.

I hope I was able to help.

James C: I would choose the larger size if you wear a sweatshirt under it.
I consider my super speed about a 1/2 size to small. It is useable but to small to use with a sweatshirt. If I were to purchase a super speed again I would get the next size larger.

Alexandre L: Thanx, I bought the larger size 54 and dont regret it at all. This jacket is actually smaller than the Laguna Seca one.. Arms are shorter and the jacket fits tighter so the 52 would have been too small. Apr 27, 2014

kary h: Dont know, but I compared the back protector opening in my size 46 Zen Evo to the opening in my size 44 Super Speed and found the Super Speed is indeed more narrow near the top. Im not sure how the jacket size influences the back protector opening dimensions but you may have a valid concern. Still, I have found this jacket to be great. So much so that I would totally sugest getting the Super Speed jacket and then find the right back protector if the Manis did not fit. May 13, 2014

A shopper asked: I love the way this looks, and it seems great for the warm weather. My question is, if you fall in this, how will this protect against Road Rash? Or will just fall apart in a slide, and there by chewing your skin up also? Thanks. Apr 30, 2014

Luke H: In my experience it held up well. The shoulder, elbow/forearm armor took most of the beating. The only scratch on me was some rash on my lower back from the jacket riding up but that was to be expected since I didn't have riding pants zipped into the jacket. Overall the jacket is great quality especially for city riding. If you're looking for something for the track I'd recommend a full piece leather suit though. Textile is great but leather will hold up much should you get off the bike at very high speeds. May 1, 2014

Kenneth S: Thanks for your answer Luke. What did the mesh parts look like after the fall? What speed were you going? Jul 3, 2014
David A: The jacket will hold up very well in case of a street fall. Elbows, forearms, and shoulders are well protected. Back and chest are a little light on material, but in my opinion its enough to protect you. You can always add back and chest protectors for more protection. If your gonna use this on the track, recommend go leather as should be. I got this jacket for the looks and breathability, one of the best jackets I've bought. May 1, 2014

A S: Hi, what chest protectors work with this Jacket? Thanks. Oct 7, 2014
LEONIDAS c: I have owned many dainese jackets over the years and I've tested their crash capabilities as well . Dainese's textile based line up is solid. Leather of course is the top protection but then again.. The armor, padding and the fabric itself is extremely thick and resistant and when I crashed I had zero rash related injuries . Hopefully you won't ever hAve to test it. Apr 30, 2014

Bobby A: This Jacket will not fall apart. I have had an off with a less protective D textile jacket and it saved me from skin loss. But remember that nothing beats leather but this jacket is and incredible alternative. remember to add the G2 Wave back protector to it. May 8, 2014

I can deal with the cold as I'm more than happy to wear extra layers. I just mostly need to know about the waterproofing. Thanks! Oct 5, 2014

David G: i was asked to respond to your question about the Super Speed Textile Jacket. I'm assuming you meant to ask about the Super Speed D-Dry Textile Jacket? The Super Speed Textile Jacket is NOT water proof, however, the Super Speed D-Dry Textile Jacket is. You'll need to re-submit your question for those who own the D-Dry version. Oct 5, 2014

Wouter B: This is a mesh jacket with a water/wind proof liner on the inside. Water will go through the outer shell easily. It is meant to hold the occasional drop out more than allow you to ride in the rain. Oct 6, 2014

Matthew G: The Dainese New Drake Air textile pants would be a perfect fit for this jacket due to the waist zipper attachment, but I find that a nice pair of Kevlar jeans works better for me since I still like my pants outside of my boots (Sidi Cobra Air). To see what I mean, look at the reviews for the New Drake Air pants. They seem to ride high on some people. May 6, 2014

kary h: If you cant find a 44 I would definetly suggest trying a 46 (the two smaller sizes). W/ the "european cut" they fit more snug than other markets, but in all the right places. The attack fit is perfect for sport bike riding and I didn't buy this jacket to walk around in. I am 5'7" and 125 lbs. and my 44 seems to be perfect but still looking forward to ~10% volume growth/ expansion that will likely come from wear. May 13, 2014

Phil E: I also have arms 27" with a slightly oversized sump (stomach). Size dilemma, yes. I was fortunate to find a dealer and tried on different sizes and found the perfect fit. I'm size 56 and the arm length was perfect. if you refer to the arm length on the size chart you will see size 56 =24.4. If you are going to purchase a back protector you may have to go up a size depending on it's thickness e.g. Forcefield Back pad insert Pro go up 1 size. As they say "if in doubt try before you buy". They are a beautiful snug fitting jacket. Feb 27, 2014

Vincent I: Hey, I'm just under 5' 8", 140lbs (64kg). I bought the size 48 jacket and it fits perfect. I don't know my exact chest and arms, but I think I'm around a 37" chest and 27" arms.

Aaron C asked: Hey guys im new to motorcycle jackets.. so im not sure what to expect but I've always had trouble with something being way to short length wise or the arms being to short. I'm 6'2 and only weigh about 170 so im tall and skinny. My chest size is 38 inches but i feel if i get something that fits my chest size it will be wayyy to short. can I get your opinions?! please and thank you! Feb 21, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Vincent I: I think you're right about it being too short... I'm 5' 8" , 140lbs, 37" chest, 30" inseam. With the size 48 jacket, the bottom edge lands right at my hip or belt level. If you got a jacket to fit a 38" chest, at 6' 2" I agree it might be short on you. Its a really snug fit though, so I bet if you went up a chest size or two to get the right length, it would still fit well, and you'd have room underneath for extra layers on the colder days.

We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements. Dainese sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.

  • Chest: Measure from under/top of armpit across chest to under/top of other armpit, then across back to first armpit
  • Waist: Measure at the hourglass of your torso, (circumference measured at your belly button)
  • Hips: pelvic bone to pelvic bone, the widest part of your hips below the waist
  • Inseam: from crotch to big ankle bone
  • Outseam: from waist to big ankle bone
  • Gloves: Using a flexible measuring tape, measure around your hand, behind the knuckles, not including the thumb.

Now out of the gates, the Dainese Super Speed is a winner, in my opinion. This is something new from Dianese. This is a very aggressive take on the mesh jacket. You could say that this is the big brother, the aggressive race-inspired brother of the Shotgun, which is one of the most popular mesh jackets that we have at RevZilla.com.

Now if we look at it right out of the gates, a few things are going to jump out at you. Aluminum shoulder sliders on a mesh jacket, really, really nice, and really a race-bred chassis with a race articulation. Now just to talk about sizing really quickly, I have Jason here on my left, 5'10, 175, 40-inch chest, wearing a size 50 in this jacket. You can see that we have . . . It's a . . . The way it hangs on his body . . . He's an athletic build, not as burly as I am, but he's an athletic cut.

We have the textile material in the impact areas, and then in the nonimpact areas, we're going to have a double layer of the larger gauge mesh, and then in the arms we have the boomerang mesh, which is a little bit tighter weave, a different look to it, adds a nice style element, and also flows tons of air.

Now if we also look down on it, you're going to see that we have more mesh that goes all the way down. The key thing early on in this review that I want you to take away is that it's a mesh, but it's a three-season mesh. I'm calling it a three-season mesh because what you can't see until I open it up is there is a removable windproof liner that's now coming with that jacket.

So you'll notice that $300 range, but you really have a jacket that, when it gets a little chilly, when you want to shut that airflow off, you put in your windproof liner, and you're good to go. If you want to beef it up with a base layer or a mid layer, you always have the ability to stretch it even further.

Now before I have you spin for me, we're going to talk about some of the other features here. Double snap up here at the collar, basic stuff, micro flexion darts, which are that reflective material that's woven in. So it doesn't create that big taped area. It works with the style. Embroidered Dianese logo. Notice that we're using . . . I think we even have a light panel of Mugello fabric that comes down here. Mugello is that really nice stretch material.

Moving down, turn face away from me, Jase. Talked about the aluminum shoulder sliders, but underneath that, we have CE-rated armor, as well as in the elbow we have the CE-rated Dianese elbows that go all the way down to your forearm as well. Notice our reflective panel.

Another cool feature that Dianese is using here in the Super Speed is this micro elastication. What it allows you to do . . . If you can look at the way that looks and the amount of fabric, compared to this elasticated stretch panel here at the shoulder, this accordion, you're using dramatically less fabric, and it's actually stronger.

So now, instead of having to have a panel that looks like this everywhere, you have the ability . . . We've seen it in gloves. We've seen it in race suits. It's more expensive to do it, but it's an upgrade in a technology. It's very cool that they're incorporating the micro elastication here.

Underneath Jason's arm, you're going to see another panel of Mugello for stretch. See our elasticated panel that goes all the way to the front, and then we have our basic stitching there. Now turn backwards for me, Jason.

Now up top, from a style standpoint, you do have this area, this patch, that has a soft hand to it. It's a different material. I think it's meant to be a little bit more lightweight, knowing that you're probably going to be potentially in a tucked position, potentially aggressively riding, give you a little bit of a different feel on the top of your back.

Moving down from there, again, double mesh in its construction, moving into a seat. That's that full textile. Notice we do have another band of micro flexion here as well, embroidered Dianese logo here at the bottom, and there's a 360 zip in this jacket as well. So you can always connect it to a pair of gnarly riding pants. Come back around to the front for me.

One of the things I also want to call out is that this is the blacked out, murdered out version, which I totally dig, and we'll sell it for days. There's also a black/white/red version. The other colors in this jacket have a white chassis with red accents and black accents. They really look like that black/white/red racing jacket. Phenomenal that they've made such an aggressive style here on really what's a textile mesh jacket. This is one of those jackets just makes Joe Rocket sad every day that Joe Rocket wakes up.

Opening this guy up, here's my rip-stop windproof liner, very lightweight, but it will block the wind. Notice our big red YKK zipped pocket here. This will take the Dianese thorax protection. Moving it open on this side, I have the liner unzipped so you can see sanitized lining, basic pocket from Dianese. Remember, using upgraded snaps, upgraded zippers, and then we have that mesh lining that in the hotter times of the year, against your body, it's going to be comfortable.

Remember, the Super Speed is going to flow a ton of air, but the nice part is you can take it early spring. You can take it maybe mid fall. Depending on how crazy you are, you could even stretch it further by sticking one of your base layers or mid layers underneath it. Handful of colors available, just over that $300 price point. I would love to hear your feedback. This is a new type of product from Dianese. It's an Apex mesh product with a very aggressive look. I want to know if you like it as much as we do, because I think we really, really dig it.
