Suit up for the next ride with the latest protective gear from Dainese and know that you will be protected in comfort. The Dainese Rhyolite Vest is breathable and comfortable enough to wear under a t-shirt or jersey. Don’t let the comfort fool you into thinking that this is a lightweight in terms of protection. Dainese uses an innovative “Crash Absorb” shape memory retention material (water-repellent elastic-visco nitrile rubber) for maximum protection in the back. The tougher material in the back will protect your back in the event of falling backwards. The front, sides, chest and abdomen of the Dainese Rhyolite receive a more comfortable protective material than in the back. The Dainese Rhyolite sandwiches Pro Shape and Crash Absorb materials to protect the vital areas. Dainese also perforates the material on the Rhyolite for even more comfort.

    Comments about Dainese Rhyolite Vest:

    I purchased this as a lighter duty back and chest protector, mainly for the upper back protection. Build quality is excellent as I have come to expect from Dainese. The back protector is shorter than the ones on a pressure suit jacket (I also have a Dainese manis jacket) so it does not cover the lowest lumbar region part of your back, but this compromise is in exchange for excellent maneuverability. The vest doesn't restrict my movement in any way and is comfortable for dirt jumping and trials riding.

    I recently "tested" the protector by landing flat on my back after a failed pedal kick to rear wheel landing off a 3' high ledge to concrete (rear wheel slipped out forwards). The vest did its job well and took the edge off the impact. Previously I fell from a lesser height in a similar manner and suffered from a sore back for days. This time my pride and the back of my helmet were the most injured.

    As others have noted, Dainese sizes are smaller than many brands. The fit chart is accurate for me. I am just under 6' tall with a 42" chest (suit size), 16" neck, and 33" waist and wear a large. The fit is snug, but I don't want my pads sliding around. For me the bottom of the vest lines up with my ribs in the front and extends about an inch below my ribs in the back. This allows a lot of flexibility without noticing the vest. If you need more coverage of the lumbar region consider a full length protector.

    Comments about Dainese Rhyolite Vest:

    I got this vest to replace my POC jacket which was too bulky and cumbersome. I wanted something lightweight, comfortable and indiscreet. This fit the bill perfectly. It's fits snuggly like a compression shirt and doesn't look like I'm getting ready to play football. It's cool and easy to move around in. I completely forget I'm actually wearing it. There is some minor rubbing on the shoulders but nothing irritable. And the back protection doesn't quite come down as far as the POC. But, the comfort and maneuverability wins out.

            Comments about Dainese Rhyolite Vest:

            I got the xxl size and I am 6'3'' and it is too short for me. I was hoping it would work but it is way to short and does not cover enough of my back. I also found it to be uncomfortable and the material could have been softer on the skin. Bottom line for what they are charging it's not worth it unless you have a tiny torso and this vest actually fits you. It would be nice if a company actually made light weight body armor that actually fit taller people.
