To ride a two-wheeled vehicle has always been associated with freedom, dynamism, and rebellion. Almost once in life, we have been victims of this vehicle charme. Nowadays, a motorbike is no more “only a passion”, but re­presents a true alternative to common vehicles for every­day displacements. This means that motorbike accidents could happen more frequently. To reduce the crash effects on the motobiker body different safety systems have been designed, in parti­cular we will focus on body protectors, directly integrated into clothing. So the objective of this thesis will be to analyse the mo­torcycle world and the most frequent injuries reported in accidents, to properly define an efficient brief, and propose a new protector to answer to effective needs. Due to the everyday use of motorbike, the purpose will be to try to find a solution that can be both protective and comfor­table, as much as possible.
