were those racetrack crashes or commuting route crashes?
Daffe,

I've lowside crash-tested a set of previous generation Dainese one-piece at about 80 mph on the racetrack and came away pretty much unscathed. No injury in the armor areas and a very minor burn/rash in an unarmored area. Spidi gloves wore through, but no injury. Alpinestars boots were fine; no foot/ankle injury. Your mileage may differ -- often depends on how you fall.

HTH
