EN 13595 certification evaluates a garment’s materials and construction via impact, abrasion, penetration and burst testing. “The CE-certification gives consumers a benchmark for a product’s competence in a crash.” Says Appleton. The suit features special ankle and wrist retention systems as required by the CE standard. Beyond that, it uses numerous four-way Kevlar stretch panels to improve the fit for various body types, and also uses printed graphics as opposed to additional layers of material** **to reduce weight and improve flexibility. The company also introduced the CE-approved Atem leather jacket ($699.95).
