IAM calls for safety rating on motorcycle clothing
Road safety charity the IAM is calling for protective motorcycle clothing to have clear labeling for the amount of protection it gives.
The call comes after research shows that motorcyclists find it difficult and time-consuming to find the right clothing at the right price.1
Eighty-five per cent of motorcyclists consider protection the most important factor when purchasing motorcycle clothing. This was closely followed by sixty-seven per cent of respondents who saw comfort and fit as an important factor.
Nearly every motorcyclist who took part in the research had spent time researching protective clothing but 43 per cent of respondents felt the right information was only available if you look hard enough.
Motorcyclists are willing to pay for top quality gear as only 30 per cent of respondents consider price a priority.
