How to choose motorcycle and bicycle protection?

CE standards 1621-2, 1621-3 and 1621-4 are essential European specifications for the protection of motorcyclists. Each of these standards applies to different types of protection, and establishes specific performance criteria to ensure you choose the right protection.

CE 1621-2 standard : Back protection

The CE 1621-2 standard applies to back protectors for motorcyclists. It sets out requirements for the performance of back protectors in absorbing energy in the event of impact. This standard assesses the ability of back protection to reduce the force transmitted to the spinal column. There are two levels of protection: Level 1 and Level 2, the latter offering better shock absorption. Tests include impacts with a falling mass, simulating different collision scenarios.

CE 1621-3 standard : Thoracic protection

The CE 1621-3 standard applies to chest protectors for motorcyclists. It defines the performance criteria for chest protectors in terms of impact absorption and coverage. This standard assesses the ability of protections to reduce the force of impact on the thoracic cage. As with the 1621-2 standard, there are different levels of protection, ensuring different degrees of safety. The protectors are subjected to impact tests to verify their effectiveness at different force levels.

CE 1621-4 standard: Inflatable Trigger Devices

The CE 1621-4 standard refers to inflatable protective devices. This relatively recent standard is designed to regulate systems that inflate automatically in the event of a collision. It assesses the airbag’s effectiveness in protecting different parts of the body. Airbags are subjected to specially adapted tests to guarantee their effectiveness at different levels of force, with different anvils from the two previous standards, and a less demanding test framework, especially against mechanical shocks.

Summary of CE 1621 standards

In summary, although CE standards 1621-2, 1621-3 and 1621-4 all concern motorcyclist safety, they apply to specific types of protection with distinct criteria and test methods. Standard 1621-2 focuses on back protection, standard 1621-3 on chest protection, and standard 1621-4 on inflatable trigger protection systems. It’s crucial for motorcyclists to understand these differences in order to choose the most appropriate protective equipment for their needs and riding style.
