Summary This paper presents the methodology developed and preliminary data from a study designed toinvestigate the adequacy of testing protocols included in the European Standard for motorcycleprotective clothing, EN13595. The study is being conducted as an adjunct to an ongoing Austroadsfunded in-depth study of motorcycle crashes. The Austroads study includes examination of thecrashed motorcycle, crash scene and interview with the rider. In this study, the clothing worn bythe rider during a crash is examined and the clothes collected for later testing of the protectivecapacity using standard laboratory tests. Kinematic analysis of each crash is used to determine theriders’ motion and observe the location of impacts to the riders’ body during a crash. Equipmentthat is capable of testing the abrasion resistance of motorcycle clothing is being constructed andvalidated. The clothing worn by motorcyclists involved in crashes collected during the Austroadsfunded study will be tested using this equipment and the clothing performance will be comparedwith injury outcomes. This paper presents preliminary results for the first 20 cases to demonstratethe methodology being employed to investigate the adequacy of the abrasion resistancerequirements of EN13595. The results of this work will be of interest to those developing programsto enhance or monitor the quality of protective clothing available to motorcyclists.
