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

This document applies to kick scooters that 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.
To reduce the risk of injuries to both the user and third parties during intended use this standard specifies safety requirements, test methods, marking, and information supplied by the manufacturer. Kick scooters for use by users of less than 20 kg do not belong to the scope of this document. 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

Dieses Dokument gilt für Kick-Scooter, die nur durch Muskelkraft eines Benutzers mit einem Körpergewicht über 20 kg und unter 100 kg fortbewegt werden können.
Um bei bestimmungsgemäßem Gebrauch die Verletzungsgefahr für Dritte und für den Benutzer zu verringern, legt diese Norm sicherheitstechnische Anforderungen, Prüfverfahren, Kennzeichnung und Herstellerinformationen fest. Kick-Scooter für einen Gebrauch durch Benutzer unter 20 kg gehören nicht zum Anwendungsbereich dieses Dokuments. Sie sind Spielzeuge.
Es sollte berücksichtigt werden, dass in der Gewichtsklasse von 20 kg bis 50 kg zwei Typen von Kick-Scootern vorkommen — 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).

Équipement de sports à roulettes - Trottinettes - Exigences de sécurité et méthodes d'essais

Le présent document s’applique aux trottinettes qui ne peuvent être propulsées que par l’activité musculaire d’un utilisateur d’un poids supérieur à 20 kg et inférieur à 100 kg.
Il spécifie les exigences de sécurité, les méthodes d’essai, les marquages et les informations fournies par le fabricant en vue de réduire les risques de blessures, pour les tiers et pour l’utilisateur, dans les conditions d’utilisation prévue. Les trottinettes destinées à des utilisateurs d’un poids inférieur à 20 kg ne relèvent pas du domaine d’application du présent document car il s’agit de jouets.
Il convient de noter qu’il existe 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 (selon l’EN 71-1).

Oprema za športe na koleščkih - Skiroji - Varnostne zahteve in preskusne metode

Ta dokument se uporablja za skiroje, ki jih je mogoče poganjati izključno na podlagi mišične dejavnosti uporabnika s telesno težo, večjo od 20 kg in manjšo od 100 kg.
Določa varnostne zahteve, preskusne metode, označevanje in informacije, ki jih mora zagotoviti proizvajalec, za zmanjšanje tveganja poškodb tretjih oseb in uporabnika pri predvideni uporabi.
Skiroji za uporabo s strani uporabnikov z manj kot 20 kg ne spadajo na področje uporabe tega dokumenta. Štejejo se za igrače.
Opozoriti je treba, da obstajata dve vrsti skirojev za težo uporabnika od 20 kg do 50 kg – skiroji, ki so klasificirani kot športna oprema za uporabo na javnih cestah, javnih poteh ali pločniku (ta evropski standard), in skiroji, ki so klasificirani kot igrače za domačo uporabo (v skladu s standardom EN 71-1).

4.2 Classification of kick scooters
4.2.1 Class A
Kick scooters intended for use by a user mass of more than 20 kg up to 100 kg.
4.2.2 Class B

Kick scooters intended for use by a user mass of more than 20 kg up to 50 kg. The maximum height of

the scooter (handle bar including hand grips or the joy stick) is 74 cm, measured from the deck to the

highest point.
4.3 Requirements
4.3.1 Protruding components and edges

Protruding components and edges that can contact with body parts during intended use shall be

constructed in such a way as to prevent injury or deburred. The test shall be carried out according

to 5.9.

Rigid and protruding parts that can 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. The ends of handlebar shall withstand the test according

to 5.4, Figure 3, and shall 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 5.9.

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 itself. Then the injury would be caused by its own strength and could be

stopped by itself 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.

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 shall 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 intended 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;

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 if it is possible that the user can move the

steering column above that indication without extra tooling; 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 cm .
4.3.5 Bearings

The bearings shall be designed in such a way as to be functional after performing all the tests according

to Clause 5. They shall be constructed in such a way as to permit servicing according to the information

supplied by the manufacturer without impairment of their operational safety.
