ISO 25649-5:2017 is applicable for CLASS C classified floating leisure articles for use on and in water according to ISO 25649‑1 regardless of whether the buoyancy is achieved by inflation or inherent buoyant material.
ISO 25649-5:2017 is to be applied with ISO 25649‑1 and ISO 25649‑2.
NOTE 1 Typical products forming class C (see Annex B):
- tube riders towable with interior holding facility and closed cockpit;
- raft riders towable;
- board riders towable;
- banana type towable.
NOTE 2 Typical places for application:
- distant from bathing areas and other frequented water surfaces, wide empty spaces, dedicated racetracks (parcours);
- no to little waves;

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents).

Introduction

The majority of technical requirements below is derived from the overriding property of the products

to provide high speed rides when towed by fast motorboats. Thus space per person and means to hold

tight reliably and comfortably and without entrapment or entanglement is an important subject. Safety

requirements concerning the towing rope form another content of the document.

Safety and performance of the products are tested by practical tests under all conditions and

manoeuvers, including the issue of a quick release in case of an emergency as well as residual buoyancy.

Comprehensive consumer information, including a set of non-verbal communication gestures complete

the requirement profile of this document.

Note 1 to entry: Inflatables made from inherent buoyant material is a buoyant structure (hull) achieving all or

parts of its intended shape and buoyancy from soft foam, hard foam or sealed chambers filled with air, gas or

granules.
4 Safety requirements and test methods
4.1 General

Construction of a floating leisure article shall be such that it corresponds in terms of design, dimensions,

safety, strength and durability for its intended use. The requirements set out in this document were

chosen to ensure compliance with these considerations. When floating leisure articles provide buoyancy

in several components, then requirements apply to all components. Floating leisure articles of class C

shall provide residual buoyancy if one air chamber fails. This residual buoyancy shall maintain the safety

of the device even if its function is lost. The following safety requirements are therefore related to:

— design,
— sizing,
— materials,
— strength,
— performance, and
— information.

Towables of all classes shall be designed in a way that the rider when in the intended position(s) can

always at least partially be seen by the observer for communication purposes by and with the observer.

In addition to this document, all requirements of ISO 25649-1 and ISO 25649-2 apply also for class C

devices.

ISO 25649-1 and ISO 25649-2 are applicable as general parts. In individual cases, due to the

unpredictability, variations and indeterminability of existing and future products, a corresponding

choice shall be made.
4.2 Test conditions

If not otherwise stated, all tests shall be carried out at an air temperature of (20 ± 3) °C.

4.3 Design
4.3.1 General

Design and shape of towables have constituted a certain number of constant types like as described

in the introduction. The entire product group of towables is however subject of permanent change in

terms of shape and function. For that reason, the space per person requirements shall be applied for

in a way to satisfy safety and performance if these parameters depend on distinct body positions for

which an available area should be provided. This applies in particular if use by children is included.

4.3.2.1 Sizing

Towables shall be sized according to their admissible number of passengers. The size shall be

communicated to the user by applying safety information symbol “number of the users, adults/children”
