A Mini tour of Dainese's À toute épreuve" exhibition in Paris

If you’re going to Paris anytime between now and the 8th of August why not take in Dainese’s A toute épreuve exhibition that’s being held at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie.
Dainese presents the history of protection from its origins to the current most innovative technologies and a look into the future.

The exhibit traces a correspondence between Nature and the first protective armors; from the armadillo’s carpace to suits of armors to a gallery leathers which have protected some of the greatest motorcycling champions of all time.
There’s also a short film by Italian director Ermanno Olmi entitled “La Vestizione Dell’Eroe” (dressing a hero), which describes the ritual of preparation of the knights of long ago through images of dressing before a race of Valentino Rossi, a modern knight preparing to face “battle”.

Another part of the exhibition is dedicated to innovative and technological development of technical sports clothing, including the D-Air leathers that several GP riders are now using and have already shown to save riders from serious injuries.

If you can’t be in Paris, here’s a video mini tour of the exhibition.
