POWER TO RIDERS
Whether you’re six months into your new adventure or 16 years passed that first ride, motorcycle gear is an investment that will always pay for itself.
Motorcyclists can take proactive approaches to ensuring that they are being protected as best as possible when enjoying the use of their vehicle.
All the items on our site come with a promise: to protect you from harm in case of an unfortunate mishap regardless of what you’re riding.
PLAYING BY THE RULES
Over time all motorcycle clothing will need to pass CE certification. As such, as a rider who chooses to wear designated motorcycle clothing, eventually, you will undoubtedly purchase protective clothing whether wittingly or not.
Nevertheless, since 21stApril 2018, all items of motorcycle clothing have been classed as Protective Personal Equipment (PPE), by the European Parliament, which makes them subject to ‘Regulation 2016/425’. Under this regulation; any clothing or personal equipment sold to provide protection from injury has to comply with the relevant standard. To ensure complicity, motorcycle gear has to be independently tested and verified. That gear should then display a CE label with the level of protection that the item offers.
ONE PLATFORM FOR ALL PPE
Every piece of motorcycle clothing you buy in the UK should now have a rating on it that gives you some idea of how protective it could be in a crash. But because so few riders are aware of the value of the information on this label, there aren’t many manufacturers taking the opportunity to shout about the results.
We focus on this gap by presenting a central platform for riders to browse CE certified gear from different motorcycle gear brands and providing opportunity to learn more as you explore.
When you’re next shopping for bike kit, be sure to check out the safety ratings; it could make a big difference to where you spend your money.
