WE ARE READY

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.

BENEATH
THE SURFACE

SEAMS
We choose thread to suit the material to make seams as strong as possible. We use Triple Stitch in vulnerable areas of our leather wear.

OUTER FABRIC
The outer fabric is leather or textile with various types of surface treatment.

HI-ART
This is where HI-ART® is located in our garments. Our proprietary material makes garments resistant to abrasion, and is used in most of our products.

ARMOUR
Garments that use armour have Velcro sewn into them to keep the armour in place and for ease of adjustment.

MEMBRANE
Some garments also have a sewn-in or removable membrane. Taped seams, naturally.

AIR MESH
We often use Air Mesh behind armour for better comfort.

LINING
Closest to the body is a lining, sewn-in or removable. Usually made from ventilated mesh, temperature-regulating Outlast® or a warm, quilted lining.

 

CE CERTIFIED PRODUCTS

There are days when things don’t go to plan. Only during thesetimes, you start to appreciate the reliability of your motorcycle gear. The EU has finally approved a new standard, EN 17092, Protective clothes for motorcyclists. 

Halvarssons AAA CE

Abrasion tests are performed on the construction at three different zones (all layers together) of the garment, excluding the detachable linings. The demands vary in these different parts of the body. Shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees have higher demands than for instant inner thighs or underarms. 

AAA is the highest performance level and then AA and A. The criteria for B are the same as for A but without impact protectors. To meet a certain performance level for a product, the results of all mechanical tests must reach the criteria of this level.
