CE standards for motorcycle clothing

Having the right motorcycle protection can literally be the difference between life and death, but do riders fully understand what the CE mark on clothing actually means?

Issue 05 of Impact Magazine includes a special feature on CE standards which includes contributions from Rukka, Furygan, KLIM and D3O Programme Manager Chris Meadows, who is a member of the committee which sets the standards for protective motorcycle gear.

“This is about as extreme as it gets”

D3O Ambassador Michael Dunlop has 15 career wins at the Isle of Man TT and is the first man in history to complete a lap of the 37-mile circuit in under 17 minutes.

Our latest Impact Magazine includes a special interview with the 28-year-old road racing star, including the effect it has on his body and why he will be back chasing more victories in 2018.

Creating cutting-edge impact performance solutions

“If it doesn’t fit, it’s not comfortable, it’s not flexible enough, people won’t use it. That essentially means it doesn’t work.” Principal Designer Adam Turvey and Product Designer Tom Pearson explain how D3O turn an initial idea into impact protection.

“It’s a great career for anyone interested in two or four-wheeled vehicles”

Brian Lunniss made his name as a top motocross mechanic, rolling out winning machines for more than 25 years. He spoke to Impact about his career in the pit lane and how that experience now feeds into his work as Mechanix Wear’s Research and Development Director.

Safety on the street

More than 70 per cent of motorcycle accidents happen within a few miles of a rider’s home, while travelling at less than 40mph. Being close to home is often the justification for wearing less protection, however D3O Ambassador Allan Lane spells out why it’s vital to make smart choices when you’re riding on the street.
