New CE legislation on motorcycle clothing
#1
Looks like the EuroCrates are bang at it again...

PR EN 17092.... you’ll see this appearing in new kit so they say...

On the plus side, should guarantee a good level of protection..

The down side.... where is this going? Compulsory wearing as in France??

Some say it’s to stifle competition from outside EU and protect in EU brands...

As Brexit looms.... all I can say is... as we’ve done our own thing on stuff like this, it really won’t impact us, but will it if you travel to the EU?

As long as it keeps all the cheap shite, rogue trader crap away, I’m happy.

I reckon nothing will keep the cheap crap away - it will still be made, imported and sold at a good price, probably with bogus accreditation logos on the tags.

Tried Googling it appears to be a five parter from our German chums, probably in conjunction with what used to be British Standards DIN EN 17092, doesn't appear to be a compulsory requirement for clothing, though that has been suggested to cut down on the Wally's in shorts brigade (the kind of mistake you only make once.
I assume it's intended to compliment the current standards for crash helmets and armour and set a minimum and relatable level of protection to aid consumer choice.
It seems to only exist in draft form at the moment, any more info' Doc ?
I guess it will go along the lines of similar standards for PPE ?

Nope!

April 2018 it was implemented by the EU parliament but not yet agreed or published....it has thrown European manufacturers into utter confusion. As Lee stated, the cheap crap and counterfeit market won’t give a monkey’s...

You wonder why I voted out from that shower of shit....
