The previous standard for MC boots EN13634:2002 has been updated to EN13634:2010 Boots that are certified with the previous standard can remain on the market, with the old marking, as long as no modifications are made to the boot as they were originally tested. Newly developed models, or modified previous certified boots, have to be tested and certified with the updated standard version.
MC footwear is intended to give a degree of mechanical protection to the foot and ankle in accidents without significantly reducing the ability to control the motorcycle. The particular hazards in MC accidents are abrasion, impacts with the road or motorcycle, as well as when the foot is trapped under the motorcycle. The standard sets out a number of basic requirements considered essential for MC footwear including a number of ergonomic requirements. The standard includes two performance levels, Level 1 & Level 2, in terms of the protection offered. Level 1 is the minimum level to provide useful protection in an accident. These products have an optimal comfort to suit most riding types. Level 2 is more suitable when the riding style or sport exposes the rider to an increased accident risk. Product may become heavier with less riding comfort.
Basic requirements: HeightA specified minimum height based on different sizes. Ex. size 41-42, 178 mm. Seams Overlapping constructional seams shall not face the front on specified areas. Insole construction Insole or insock shall be present in a way that it cannot be removed. Upper/outsole bond strengthThe bond strength shall not be less than 4,0 N/mm.
Upper parts: pH value Testing of leather details Chromium VI content Checking leather content level. Color permanence The dye shall not rub off in contact with water. Abrasion resistance Full thickness of the upper part is tested according to EN13595-2. Lowest performance figures gives the performance level. Different requirement levels at different zones. Highest requirement 5sec/Level1, 12 sec/Level2. Impact cut resistance Test of full thickness of the upper part according to EN13595-4. A blade drops from a certain height and deepness of penetration determines the result.
Linings/insole and insock: Tear strength Abrasion resistance Wearing the surface with a rotating sandpaper and shall not develop any holes before: Dry condition 25 600 cycles. Wet condition 12 800 cycles.. pH value Testing on leather details. Chromium VI content Checking the leather is not exceeding the specified level if determined. Water absorptionDetermines how well the inner sole dispose and desorptionof moisture (sweat). Color permanence The dye shall not rub off in contact with water.
Outer sole: Thickness and Control of sole pattern. No openings should cleat height be facing forward. Abrasion resistance Hydrolysis Testing at 15 000 flex cycles ErgonomicsThe assessor shall be able to carry out all the defined movements. Transverse rigidity of Two performance levels. the whole footwear
Optional requirements (to be marked on CE label): Ankle- and shin protection Impact test performance shall meet the requirements specified for transmitted force. IPA and IPS (ankle and shin) Resistance to water penetration WR Resistance to fuel oil of outsole FO Slip resistance of outsole SRA, SRB and SRC depending on performance. Permeable uppers Permeable to water vapour B. Our models are tested against the optional requirement for ankle- and shin protection. (IPA & IPS)
1st figure indicate the performance level for abrasion resistance. 2nd figure indicate the performance level for impact cut resistance. 3rd figure indicate the performance level for transverse rigidity of hole footwear. IPA and IPS indicate that the boots are tested and comply with the optional requirements for ankle- and shin protection.
Markings on the boots: Size Producers name/logo. Identification number and name. Year of manufacture and month. Number and year of the European Standard. Pictogram including protection levels. Contains label.
Explanation of the marking at boots. Full address of the manufacturer or his authorised representative in the EU. Statement of the intended use of the footwear. Explanation of the protection provided under this European Standard. Warning of the limits of protection provided by the footwear and that misuse would seriously reduce the protection.. Clean and care. Suggested lifetime and who to examine the footwear for damage. …everything translated in to the official language of the country of destination. User information and instruction:
