Introduction

This International Standard has been developed in response to demand throughout the world, and the

aim has been to ensure that luggage carrier manufactured in compliance with it will be as safe as is

practically possible. The tests have been designed to ensure the strength and durability of the luggage

carrier, demanding high quality throughout and consideration of safety aspects from the design stage

onwards.

The scope has been limited to safety considerations and has specifically avoided standardization of

components.

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.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International

Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.

Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies

casting a vote.

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.

ISO 11243 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 149, Cycles, Subcommittee SC 1, Cycles and

major sub-assemblies.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 11243:1994), of which has been technically

revised.

Introduction

This International Standard has been developed in response to demand throughout the world, and the

aim has been to ensure that luggage carrier manufactured in compliance with it will be as safe as is

practically possible. The tests have been designed to ensure the strength and durability of the luggage

carrier, demanding high quality throughout and consideration of safety aspects from the design stage

onwards.

The scope has been limited to safety considerations, and has specifically avoided standardization of

components.

3.7
toy carrier
carrier with a part intended for containing a toy of a maximum weight of 1 kg
4 Classific ation

The manufacturer shall classify the carrier with the maximum load capacity for which it is intended,

taking into consideration any restrictions laid down in Table 1.

If the carrier is intended to carry a child seat, designed to clamp onto the platform of a normal rear

luggage carrier, classified for 9-22 kg (see EN 14344), the maximum load capacity of the luggage carrier

shall be at least 27 kg.

In Table 1, the maximum limit (if any) for the load capacity is indicated for each type of luggage carrier

that falls within the scope of this standard. The applicable requirements and test methods differ

according to the type and maximum load capacity.
The following terminology is used in the table:

— normal rear carrier: rear carrier supported by fixings to the bicycle frame close to the rear wheel

axle.

— frame-mounted beam carrier: rear carrier that is structurally a cantilever, fixed to the bicycle frame

in front and/or above the rear wheel. It may also be fixed to the seat post, in addition to the frame,

but receives no support from the bicycle frame near to the axle of the rear wheel.

— seat post-mounted beam carrier: rear carrier that is structurally a cantilever, fixed to the seat post

of the bicycle without additional fixings to the frame.

— above wheel front carrier: front carrier with a platform upon which loads can be placed above the

front wheel.

— low-load front carrier: front carrier that is exclusively designed for carrying a pair of panniers,

where the “platform” is a pair of rails (from which the panniers hang) one each side of the wheel and

not more than 200 mm above the lower points of attachment of the carrier near to the axle of the

front wheel.

— front-mounted container: container such as a basket that is mounted and permanently attached

above the front wheel of a bicycle and that is exclusively designed for carrying luggage.

5 Requirements and test methods
5.1 General

In general, for static and fatigue tests, each type of test shall be conducted on a new test sample, but if

only one test sample is available, it is permissible to conduct all of the tests on the same sample with the

sequence of testing in the order: fatigue tests, static tests.
In the strength tests all components shall be in the fully-finished condition.
The test frequency shall be stated in all fatigue test reports.

The luggage carrier shall be tested using the connecting interface position(s) and type(s) according to

the luggage carrier manufacturer’s specifications.

The luggage carrier shall be tested with all accessories provided (e.g. lock, pumps …).

For luggage carrier intended to be fitted on an EPAC and designed to include a battery, the test shall be

performed with the battery in addition to the mass defined in Clause 4.

Unless otherwise stated the following tolerances shall be used:
All forces shall have an accuracy of 0/+ 5 %.
All masses shall have an accuracy of ± 1 %.
All dimensions shall have an accuracy of ± 1 mm.
All time measurements shall have an accuracy of ± 1 s.
All angles shall have an accuracy of ± 1°.
All frequencies and amplitudes shall have an accuracy of ± 5 %.
5.3 Sharp edges

Exposed edges that could come into contact with the rider’s or a transported person’s hands, legs, etc.,

during normal riding or normal handling and normal maintenance shall be neither sharp nor designed

such that injuries can arise when the bicycle is used correctly. Spring ends shall be rounded or fitted

with protective caps.
5.4 Security of safety-related fasteners
5.4.1 Security of screws

Any screws used in the assembly of the luggage carrier or screws used to attach the luggage carrier shall

be provided with suitable locking devices, for example, lock-washers, lock-nuts, or stiff nuts.

5.5 Crack detection methods

Standardised methods may be used to emphasize the presence of cracks where visible cracks are

specified as criteria of failure in tests specified in this document.
[[2]][[3]][[4]][[5]]

NOTE For example, suitable dye-penetrant methods are specified in ISO 3452 (all parts) .

5.6 Dimensions
The dimensions of luggage carriers are not specified, except as follows:

Normal rear luggage carriers of load class 27, to which a child-seat could be attached (see Clause 4), shall

have a luggage-carrier platform width of 175 mm.
5.7 Protrusions
5.7.1 General

These requirements are intended to address the hazards associated with the users of bicycle falling on

projections or rigid components on bicycle possibly causing internal injury. Exposed protrusions made

with soft material are excluded from this requirement.
5.7.2 Exposed protrusions

An exposed protrusion shall be determined by the method detailed in 5.7.3. Such protruding parts

should be protected. The size and shape of the end protection has not been stipulated, but an adequate

shape shall be given to avoid puncturing of the body.

The following elements should not be considered as exposed protrusions and are therefore excluded

from the requirement except if due to an unusual shape they could be in conflict with 4.4.1.
