ATGATT: Safety expert urges retailers to meet the latest riding kit standards

A leading motorcycle kit safety expert says he would support heavier involvement from Trading Standards to stamp out sellers peddling substandard products at biking shows and other events.

Paul Varnsverry is the Technical Director at PVA-PPE Group, who work in partnership with brands to ensure their riding products meet the latest safety certification, and believes more needs to be done to protect customers purchasing biking gear at shows and festivals.

"These products are an unknown quantity," Varnsverry told MCN. "To filter out any vendors who may be selling non-conforming products, I certainly think it would be advisable for show organisers to invite Trading Standards along to an event."

ATGATT: All The Gear, All The Time! The physical and emotional cost of not wearing the right motorcycle gear can be far greater than the financial cost. Fall off your bike and tarmac will shred through your standard jeans in seconds. Wearing the right gear is just as important to your safety as servicing your motorcycle and knowing how to ride it. Dress for the crash, not the ride.
