Unlike the original Dainese back protectors were inspired by the structure of an armadillo's/lobster's shell, the plates of the Manis closely mimic those of the Pangolin. This animal is covered in a series of protective scales that are overlaid in such a way that they provide a consistent level of protection to every area of the body without limiting the flexibility of the creature.

The Manis Back Protector offers CE Level 2 Protection and the most advanced design characterizes this innovative back protector that breaks the classic design pattern and sets new ergonomic standards. Innovative construction solutions give the protector 3 more degrees of freedom than protectors of the past, thus allowing it to closely replicate all the shapes of the human back in typical motorcycle racing positions. The protector is capable of extending or retracting by bending, in this way following the movements of the torso. It is also able to bend and twist to follow the lateral bending movements of the body. The composite sandwich is the result of Dainese's 30 years of experience in the design of back protectors, the external plates with controlled elastic return movement are made of polypropylene and coupled to the Crash Absorb®. A final layer of comfort material ensures precise coupling with the surface anatomy of the back. The protector is characterized by large perforations and very small surfaces in contact with the body to provide maximum thermal comfort, while the lightweight design completes the design harmony of this revolutionary back protection system.
