Roller sports equipment - Kick scooters - Safety requirements and test methods

This European Standard applies to kick scooters which can only be propelled by the muscular activity of a user with a body mass of more than 20 kg and less than 100 kg.
It specifies safety requirements, test methods, marking and information supplied by the manufacturer to reduce the risk of injuries to both third parties and the user during normal use.
Kick scooters for use by users of less than 20 kg do not belong to the scope of this European Standard. They are toys.
It should be noted that there are two types of scooters for the weight group 20 kg to 50 kg – those classified as sports equipment for use on public roads and path ways (this European Standard) and those classified as toys for domestic use (according to EN 71-1).

Rollsportgeräte - Kick-Scooter - Sicherheitstechnische Anforderungen und Prüfverfahren

Diese Europäische Norm gilt für Kick-Scooter, die durch Muskelkraft eines Benutzers mit einem Körper¬gewicht über 20 kg und unter 100 kg fortbewegt werden können.
Sie legt sicherheitstechnische Anforderungen, Prüfverfahren, Kennzeichnung und Herstellerinformationen fest, um bei bestimmungsgemäßem Gebrauch die Verletzungsgefahr für Dritte und für den Benutzer zu verringern.
Kick-Scooter für einen Gebrauch durch Benutzer bis 20 kg gehören nicht zum Anwendungsbereich dieser Europäischen Norm. Sie sind Spielzeuge.
Es ist festzustellen, dass in der Gewichtsklasse von 20 kg bis 50 kg zwei Typen von Kick-Scootern vor¬kommen solche, die als Sportgeräte für die Nutzung auf öffentlichen Straßen und Wegen gelten (diese Europäische Norm) und solche, die als Spielzeuge für den Hausgebrauch klassifiziert sind (nach EN 71 1).

Elle définit les exigences de sécurité, les méthodes d’essai, les dispositions relatives au marquage et les informations fournies par le fabricant en vue de réduire les risques de blessures, pour les tiers et pour l’utilisateur, dans des conditions d'utilisation normales.
Les trottinettes destinées à des utilisateurs d’un poids inférieur à 20 kg ne relèvent pas du domaine d’application de la présente Norme européenne car il s’agit de jouets.
Il convient de noter qu'il y a deux types de trottinettes pour le groupe de poids compris entre 20 kg et 50 kg - à savoir celles classées comme équipement de sport destiné à être utilisé sur la voie publique (la présente Norme européenne) et celles classées comme jouets à usage domestique (EN 71-1).

The maximum height of the steering column is 80 cm. 4.3 Requirements 4.3.1 Protruding components and edges All protruding components and edges on the kick scooter that can come into contact with body parts during normal use shall be deburred or constructed in such a way as to prevent injury. The test shall be carried out according to 5.8. Rigid and protruding parts that may cause entrapment or injuries shall be protected. This protection shall not come loose during tests performed according to Clause 5. The ends of the handles shall be covered. To prevent from injuries, ends of handlebar have to withstand the test according to 5.4, Figure 3, and remain free of sharp edges. 4.3.2 Parts moving against each other 4.3.2.1 General The requirements specified in 4.3.2.2 to 4.3.2.5 shall be tested according to 5.8. 4.3.2.2 Distance between the parts 4.3.2.2.1 General Below requirements do not have to be considered if the customer acts intentionally close to and directly on the component and hurts himself. Then the injury would be caused by his own strength and could be stopped by himself immediately. 4.3.2.2.2 Class A The distance between accessible moveable parts shall be either smaller than 5 mm or wider than 18 mm in any position. This requirement does not apply to the wheels/spokes/wheel support system or the braking/rear brake system, if provided. 4.3.2.2.3 Class B a) The space between moving elements, capable of injuring fingers, shall also allow a 12 mm rod to be inserted if it allows a 5 mm rod to be inserted. b) Accessible openings in moving elements capable of shearing a finger shall not allow the insertion of a 5 mm rod. This requirement does not apply to the wheels/spokes/wheel support system or the braking/rear brake system, if provided. SIST EN 14619:2015

EN 14619:2015 (E) 7 4.3.2.3 Folding mechanism Any folding mechanism shall be designed to fix the kick scooter for use in a simple, rigid and safe way. It shall resist all tests without damage. Fixing components should not have contact with the front wheel in any position. An inadvertent unlocking of the mechanism shall be impossible. If the distance as specified in 4.3.2.2 is not met, other designs to protect the user from unintentional injuries shall be provided. 4.3.2.4 Sliding mechanism others than the steering system Sliding mechanisms shall be protected against unintentional opening or collapse during normal use. 4.3.2.5 Springs Springs shall not be accessible if the gap between two consecutive spirals or turns allows a 5 mm diameter rod to be inserted on a 10 mm depth. 4.3.3 Steering system The steering system shall be constructed: a) to avoid contact between wheels and other parts of the kick scooter during usual riding; b) that the length adjustment fixing avoids unintentional opening; 1) For class B, the height shall be adjustable with the use of a tool or have at least one main locking device and one secondary locking device of which at least one shall automatically be engaged when the height is adjusted. c) that the steering column, if it is sliding, shall be adjusted for height, and have a permanent mark that indicates the minimum insertion depth of the column; this mark shall be positioned at a distance equivalent to and not less than two and a half times the diameter of the column and shall not affect its strength; d) that the end of the handlebar is equipped with hand grips or plugs, which withstand a tensile load of 70 N in the loosening direction. When tested according to Clause 5, there shall be no break or functional damage of the steering system. 4.3.4 Deck The deck shall resist all tests specified in Clause 5 without any functional damage. It shall be equipped with an anti-slide surface with an area of at least 200 cm2. 4.3.5 Bearings The bearings shall be designed in such a way as to be functional after performing all th
