Buy a trusted brand and you will not be disappointed
Had the wave back protector for about 15 years, took one heavy highside while wearing it (hit a kangaroo...yes I am not joking) at about 80-90kmph. The wave worked well, but the aluminium in the protector itself deformed a little as designed. It was only minor but I felt it was time for an upgrade. The Manis is, in a word, awesome, comes right down to my tail bone and feels solid and is held in place well by an excellent design overall. Articulates as it should. Now I should point out I ride a dyna fat bob now, but I am not always just cruising so it is nice to have the protector move with me as I move around the bike. Don't mind that it comes over my jeans (Rukker of course), but under my full leathers it is of course totally fine. Personally I prefer to have one good back protector and wear it whether I am in full leather or just jeans and a vest. Always have good gloves, good shoes, helmet and back protector as the bare minimum even when it is boiling hot outside.

Just buy it, it may save your life or serious injury and a totally comfortable and well made product.

Short review.
Highly recommend. Sizing is spot on if you follow the guidelines. Comfortable (forget you're wearing it) and fits under my Leguna Seca D1 suit without any issues.
You can remove the waist straps but not the shoulder harness.
I had read a review of someone mentioning the straps being bulky which worried me as I wanted it primarily to wear under a very tight fitting, aggressive suit. The straps are no issue at all!
It also looks bad-ass!

Wear it everyday and would buy it again.
Comfortable, easy to wear and easy to put on and take off. I feel more confident while I wear this back protector than when I used to wear my insert back protector.

Dainese Manis D1 Back Protector
I like the feeling that its like your not wearing anything and the flexibility it gives your mouvements. Once straped it keeps well in place and does not move so this is definetly a bang for the buck.

This back protector is the perfect balance of style, protection, functionality and flexibility. It has good air flow and great comfort.
I purchased the Dainese Mantis D1 back protector for use on the track. I was very impressed with the build quality of the back protector. After eight hours at the track, it is evident that a lot of thought and research went into the design of this product. It is the perfect balance of style, protection, functionality and flexibility. It has good air flow and great comfort. I highly recommend this product.

Awesome back protector. Takes some trial and error to get it on with the full suit setup, but it's well worth it.

Because my jeans are low rise, and I wanted something to protect my lower back from road rash
nicholas p on Feb 23, 2017
Great ergonomics, felt comfortable and helped in low side.

After a crash, it was time to upgrade to full protection gear
M I on Jul 31, 2016
this is also my second set. unfortunately, my first set is out of the country and it's a pain to bring back and forth so I just bought another one.
Owen C on Jun 19, 2016
I've been crashing in Dainese for almost ten years and 100,000 miles of riding, can't even remember the model. Stealth maybe? Hoping the shoulder straps will keep the back protector centered in my suit.

Too feel safer on the road

Robert H on May 2, 2016
manis will protect me at the track in case i go down & i needed the best , Also i liked the straps help keep every thing together so if i take off track suit manis wont flop backwards like other one you offer !!!

My friend got one,looks so cool
Wells Z on Jan 12, 2016
Recommended by an avid motorcyclist, my son. This is a Christmas gift. I hope it gets here on time! :-)
Michelle C on Nov 27, 2015
To replace a 15 year old Dainese wave back protector that has taken a few get offs. The manis seemed like the best pick of all the back protectors, and I like the stand alone version so I can use it with different jackets and also cover my lower back a little better.
Derrida on Sep 12, 2015
The one I bought previously was to big so I need to buy a smaller one.
A S on Sep 11, 2015

I wanna what is the deference between this D1 and the normal Manis?
YOUSIF Q on Jul 8, 2015
Can you tell me, what is the difference between this protector and Dainese Manis ? What is new about it ?
Thanks in advance !!!
A shopper on Nov 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I believe it is just the CE certification. Unless they changed something to get it certified.
Would you race in this? If not what would you choose?
derrick c on Jan 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes
Would this create a need for a slightly larger jacket size on something like he super speed d1?
A C on Jul 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's really not meant to be worn with a jacket. It would definitely fill in space and make the fit tighter, but comfort would probably depend on your body frame. So if the jacket is fitted to you body already then I would recommend a slightly larger size. Also be aware that the manis is longer then the jacket and will stick out from the bottom.
