CE CERTIFIED PRODUCTS
There are days when things don’t go to plan. Only during these times, you start to appreciate the reliability of your motorcycle gear. The EU has finally approved a new standard, EN 17092, Protective clothes for motorcyclists.
Motorcyclist personal protection comes under the legislation of the EU Regulation 2016/425. This means that all products that are intended to protect the user from one or another hazard must be tested, by an accredited laboratory, to a written CE standard or Regulation. The laboratory issues a CE certificate for each product if it passes the criteria.
Different tests are performed for different products such as gloves, boots, limb protectors, back protectors, etc. Generally, mechanical tests and innocuousness tests are performed according to each CE standard. If the product only provides protection against the seasons, such as rain and wind, it does not need to be tested and certified.
Both the importer and the distributor are responsible for ensuring that the products brought into and placed on the market in the EU are tested and certified.
The people behind the Lindstrands brand are very experienced in developing products in this field and have been at the forefront of developing and testing protective gear for motorcyclists.
