Ducati presents its new 2023 clothing collection to the public: a complete and extensive range of products designed to meet the needs of all motorcycle enthusiasts.
The garments proposed by the Ducati 2023 Apparel line are conceived and designed to make the experience riding the models in the Ducati range, in particular the new ones introduced during the Ducati World Première web series, even more pleasant. Furthermore, the line also contains various garments for those who want to live their passion for the Bologna-based manufacturer in their daily life and support the MotoGP and Superbike World Champion Teams on every occasion.
The collection includes technical garments, produced and developed with safety and performance as key elements. The aesthetics have been studied and enhanced by the collaboration between Aldo Drudi and the Centro Stile Ducati and the products are made together with the best companies in the sector, with high quality materials that guarantee great protection. Furthermore, for the first time, the entire Ducati Corse line is offered with a common graphic theme which recalls the three shades of red on the MotoGP livery.
The Ducati Performance Wear clothing collection adapts perfectly to the increasingly wide range of Ducati models and is divided by intended use into the Racing lines dedicated to track riding, Sport for road riding, Touring for travelling and Urban to move around the city without compromising between protection and style.
The main change for the Racing line is the renewal of the iconic Ducati Corse C6 suit, the top product for the motorcyclist who loves performance on the track. Made of soft full-grain leather, this suit has thermoformed composite protectors on the shoulders, elbows and knees, which are matched by soft protectors on the hips and coccyx to increase the level of protection. The steel plates on the knees, shoulders and elbows promote sliding in the event of an impact and provide additional safety for the rider. The sliders on the knees and elbows are replaceable and the torso is designed to accommodate the new Company 3 Wave back protector.
To ensure maximum freedom of movement while riding, the suit integrates a Tri-axial elastic insert on the back. Ducati Corse C6 is also equipped with large, perforated areas that allow air to circulate inside the garment in order to improve the rider’s thermal comfort.
The Ducati Corse C6 suit is among the garments offered by the Bologna-based company in the exclusive Ducati SuMisura programme, which offers Ducatisti the possibility of personalising their suits both in terms of graphic design and according to their own physical conformation. In this project, even the two-piece suits have been renewed with new graphics. The Ducati Corse D-Air C2 suit, on the other hand, will be available for the first time outside the Ducati SuMisura project in all standard sizes. Further information on the programme can be found at this link.
Still for track use, Ducati has also renewed the top-of-the-range Ducati Corse V6 helmet, which stands out thanks to the unmistakable graphics created by Drudi Performance, inspired by the MotoGP livery. The outer shell of the helmet is made of composite fibres and is designed to add rigidity to the resin and be more resistant in the event of a fall. The "Peripherally Belted SNC" protective band wraps around the upper area of the shell, further increasing its internal rigidity. Another important feature of this helmet is the good ventilation, which helps to lower the temperature, significantly increasing comfort.
The Ducati Corse V6 helmet, like all Ducati by Arai helmets, has a 5-year guarantee.
