In addition to Dainese Settantadue, a selection of new helmets from the AGV Legends collection will be on display. AGV Legends is a tribute collection that reinterprets the iconic helmet models worn by famous racers Giacomo Agostini and Renzo Pasolini—but with a modern twist.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Union Garage on this pop-up experience,” said Roberto Sadowsky, Executive Vice President of Dainese and AGV in North America. “Dainese Settantadue and AGV Legends are special to us and convey the feelings and richness of a heritage moto era. It’s so much more powerful to be able to touch and see the detail of Dainese Settantadue and AGV Legends close, and we’re excited to bring this to the New York City community.”
The Dainese Settantadue pop-up will open on May 5, 2018 and run until May 20. Special events will take place throughout the length of the experience, including a group ride and multiple giveaways of Dainese Settantadue jackets.
“We’re really excited to help launch these new heritage collections from two iconic Italian brands,” said Chris Lesser, founder of Union Garage. “Welcoming Dainese and AGV to the lineup goes to the heart of our primary mission: to offer riders the best gear from the best brands in the world.”
An after-hours kick-off party for the pop-up will begin at 8PM on Friday May 4, with food, drinks, an exhibition of rare archival pieces from the Dainese vault in Italy, and some special surprise guests in the form of two rare and historic motorcycles.
THE POP-UP SHOP
The full lineup of both the Dainese Settantadue brand and the AGV Legends collection are housed right next door to Union Garage’s main showroom, at 103 Union Street in Brooklyn. The Pop-Up will be open every day from May 5-20, following regular store hours—including special extended evening hours on Thursdays and Fridays through the duration of the experience.
