Macna is a brand that is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in the motorcycle apparel industry in Australia. This Netherlands-based brand has always been at the forefront of safety, blending CE-Certified armour with well designed, rugged and comfortable jackets for many years. Now that CE-Certification has been extended to garments as a whole, not just the incorporated armour, Macna has responded with a new range of fully CE-Approved apparel.
So, what does all this mean for Australian motorcyclists? Well, basically CE-Certification assesses each garment using a cross section of three tests.
Impact protectors reduce the energy transferred during an impact. The protectors absorb energy in the most exposed areas: the elbows, shoulders, hips and knees. The CE-Certification test also ensures the protectors stay in place in a crash scenario.
An abrasion resistance test measures how long the material(s) used in a motorcycle garment can withstand a slide along a road before being worn away. The CE-Certification for abrasion resistance is scored according to known levels of impact-abrasion risk for different zones of the body and then weighted according to the level of risk.
A burst resistance test measures the level to which a garment remains intact in a crash. CE-Certification scores for burst resistance are biased towards the importance of good quality seams, which endure greater loads in a crash than other areas of a garment.
In summary, this new CE-Certification is designed to give motorcyclists peace of mind when buying apparel – if it’s CE-Certified apparel, it’s been proven to conform to an internationally recognised safety standard and will protect riders in the event of a crash.
How To Get Your Measurments
1) Lay your jeans flat on a table with the button and zipper done up.
2) With band pulled out firmly measure one side to the other using inches or centimetres. Merlin jeans will not shrink, they will give a bit after being worn for a short time so best to start firm.
3) Double the measurement = Your Merlin Jeans waist size.
