Summary Energy attenuation provided by motorcycle impact protectors (IPs) is a mechanism that can be used toreduce loads transferred to the body of motorcyclists. Impact protectors have been shown to reduce the overallinjury risk in motorcycle crashes [1] and severity of fracture injuries in laboratory tests [2‐3]. However, previousresearch shows little evidence that commonly used motorcycle IPs are effective in reducing the risk of fracturesin real‐world crashes. Motorcycle IPs usually comply with the European Standard EN1621‐1, which setsminimum energy attenuation requirements. This study aims to examine the effectiveness of IPs worn byAustralian riders in crashes, in terms of EN1621‐1 energy attenuation requirements and injury outcomes.
