CE-marking It is all about your safety. The CE marking is included for your sake, so that you know exactly what you are getting when you buy different types of goods. It is a guarantee that the product complies with a specific established standard. Motorcycle clothing and other protective equipment require extensive independent testing in order to be able to carry a CE marking. We are proud to be one of only a handful of manufacturers who comply with several of the most rigorous requirements. We applied for and received CE marking very early on for our leather and textile clothing, as well as our protectors, boots and gloves. And we are constantly developing our collection and promoting the development of safe motorcycle clothing in the future. Fake CE marking! Unfortunately, this is indeed true. Many manufacturers use fake CE markings on their products. Here are some examples of information that must be included as a means of proving that the CE marking is genuine. All approved products must be clearly labelled with the CE symbol and written user information must be provided, which must always be in the language of the country where the item is being marketed. CE-MARKING. The user information must also state the name and ID number of the test institute that issued the CE marking. The name and trademark of the product manufacturer, together with any other identifying information, must also be included. Every protector must be labelled with the approved protection class. The number of the current European standard must also be included, for example, EN 1621-1. If these requirements are not fulfilled, there is every likelihood that the CE marking is a fake. Unfortunately, although these points are a great help in determining whether a CE marking is genuine or not, they are still not a definite guarantee. Be sure to choose the right size To ensure that the protection built into our clothing functions as intended and to be able to guarantee the durability and function of materials, the clothes need to fit properly. If you are unsure, try the item on again and ask store staff for assistance. Ce marking at work Here is a short list, with examples, of what is required if you want to achieve CE marking under the various standards for motorcycles. The aim of CE marking and testing is to ensure that clothes and accessories sold for the purpose of providing protection actually comply with specific predetermined requirements. EN 1621-1 Motorcyclists’ protective clothing against mechanical impact. Separate or combined protectors for shoulders, elbows, hips and knees – the parts of the body most commonly injured during an accident. In addition to the test criteria described below, there are also rules for the shape of protectors and the size of the protected area. Test method: The test for protectors involves each one being hit with a large metal object nine times in different places, using energy equivalent to 50 J. The average impact force from the nine hits, measured on the inside of the protector, must not exceed 35 kN. No single impact should exceed 50 kN. Each individual protector must comply with these requirements to receive CE marking. Extensive studies of real accidents have led to the body being divided into different zones according to how exposed they are. Protectors and tests are developed based on these studies to ensure that the most exposed areas of the body are properly protected. EN 1621-2 Motorcyclists’ protective clothing against mechanical impact. Separate or combined protectors for shoulders, elbows, hips and knees – the parts of the body most commonly injured during an accident. In addition to the test criteria described below, there are also rules for the shape of protectors and the size of the protected area. Test method: The test for protectors involves each one being hit with a large metal object nine times in different places, using energy equivalent to 50 J. The average impact force from the nine hits, measured on the inside of the protector, must not exceed 35 kN. No single impact should exceed 50 kN. Each individual protector must comply with these requirements to receive CE marking. Extensive studies of real accidents have led to the body being divided into different zones according to how exposed they are. Protectors and tests are developed based on these studies to ensure that the most exposed areas of the body are properly protected. EN 13634 Protective footwear for professional motorcycle riders In order for footwear to be approved and to bear the CE marking, it must satisfy requirements pertaining to the quality and torsional stiffness of the material as well as its resistance to friction, penetration, tearing and wear. This standard is also divided into two levels. Test method: Wear resistance is important and is tested in the same manner as for EN 13595-2 by pressing the item against an abrasive belt grinder. To achieve Level 1 approval, the outside of the footwear must remain intact for 5 seconds. For Level 2 approval, it must remain intact for a full 12 seconds. Resistance to cuts is also tested. The material making up the soles must be resistant to chemicals, oil and petrol. Certification is possible with or without protection for ankles and shins. We have chosen to certify our approved models with this additional protection. These are then tested for impacts and blows up to the Level 1 standard. EN 13595-1 to EN 13595-4 Protective clothing for professional motorcycle riders – jackets, trousers and one-piece suits The standard for protective clothing is aimed at those people who spend most of their time in traffic – professional riders. However, it is an appropriate standard for anyone wanting the best possible protection. In addition to abrasion tests, there are also stringent demands for fit and the design of clothing. One important aspect is that the item must always fit as intended – especially in an accident situation. The standard is divided into two levels: Level 1 is slightly more basic, ensuring that clothes provide some degree of protection. Level 2, however, is tougher and demands that a greater degree of protection be provided by the clothing. Test method: For approval, the clothing must undergo a series of tests to measure its abrasion resistance, tensile strength and durability, and its resistance to penetration. The abrasion test involves pressing the clothing against an abrasive belt grinder and measuring the time it takes until the material fails. A normal piece of fabric will tear in less than half a second. To be approved in accordance with Level 1, zones 1 and 2 (the most exposed parts of the body) must survive for four seconds. To be approved in accordance with Level 2, zones 1 and 2 must survive for seven seconds. This roughly equates to the duration of a slide if you crash at 110 km/h. The penetration test measures how deep the tip of a knife penetrates the clothing when a specific pressure is applied. Tensile strength and durability are measured by stretching the material, seams and zipper until these fail. The clothing must be able to withstand a specific pressure before this happens.
