Cycles — Porte-bagages pour bicyclettes — Exigences et méthodes d'essai

Le présent document spécifie les exigences de sécurité et de performance pour la conception et les essais de porte-bagages non spécifiques aux cycles et destinés à être montés (avec ou sans outils), et de porte-bagages spécifiques aux cycles montés sur des cycles complets. Il s’applique aux porte-bagages destinés à être positionnés au-dessus et à côté des roues de cycles. Ce document établit des lignes directrices pour les instructions relatives à l'utilisation et à l'entretien de ces porte-bagages. Le présent document ne concerne pas les bagages amovibles (par exemple des sacs de guidon ou des paniers qui ne sont pas fixés en permanence). Les porte-bagages jouet destinés à être montés sur les bicyclettes pour jeunes enfants entrant dans le domaine d’application de la norme ISO 8098 ne sont pas couverts par le présent document.
