TESTING MOTORCYCLE RIDERS' CLOTHING AND THE PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT DIRECTIVE

Four new tests have been developed for determining the strength and abrasion resistance of motorcycle riders' clothing. These have been validated in dummy tests in a simulated accident, and by performing the tests on crash-damaged clothing. These tests, and others, have been combined in a test schedule for new clothing. The use of these tests and associated limit values and specifications are described. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 881069.
