For relationship with EU Directive(s), see informative Annex ZA, which is an integral part of this document. The following significant technical changes have been introduced in comparison with the former edition EN 13634:2015: a) the requirement for an overall performance level has been removed and the associated user information requirement amended accordingly; b) the marking requirement has been changed with an additional mandatory marking number for the upper height; c) Table 3 has been revised to include an additional column for H1 requirements; d) the sampling requirements have been clarified in 4.4.4 and 4.4.5; e) Annex B (informative) has been replaced by a note in 4.1; f) clarification of the “assessor” has been included in Annex A. According to the CEN-CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organisations of the following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom.

EN 13634:2017 (E) 5 Introduction Motorcyclists’ footwear is intended to give a degree of mechanical protection to the foot, optionally the ankle and/or part of the shin in accidents without significantly reducing the ability of the rider to control the motorcycle and operate the foot controls. The particular hazards in motorcycle accidents are abrasion with the road surface plus impacts with the motorcycle, conflicting vehicles, road furniture and road surfaces. Road surface injuries are worse when the foot is trapped under the motorcycle during sliding impacts. The standard sets out a number of basic requirements considered essential for this type of footwear including a number of ergonomic requirements. This European Standard includes several properties which have two performance levels in terms of the protection afforded. These cover the degree of risk or hazard that a motorcyclist will face in terms of the type of riding and the nature of the accident. Where riders feel that their riding style or sport exposes them to an increased accident risk ‘Level 2’ of each of these performance features offers increased performance. However it is likely that this higher performance level has an increased penalty for the weight and comfort so may not be acceptable to all riders. SIST EN 13634:2018

EN 13634:2017 (E) 7 4 Basic requirements for motorcycle footwear 4.1 General The minimum number of samples to be tested in order to check compliance with the requirements specified in this standard is detailed in Table 1. Unless otherwise specified, all samples shall be conditioned and tested in an environment of (23 ± 2) °C and (50 ± 5) % rh (relative humidity). This standard defines 4 specific properties for motorcycle footwear with 2 possible performance level (height of the upper, impact abrasion, impact cut, transverse rigidity). To comply with this European Standard, the motorcycle footwear shall achieve at least performance level 1 for all four properties. For each of the required measurements performed in accordance with this standard, a corresponding estimate of the uncertainty of measurement should be evaluated. One of the following approaches should be used: - a statistical method, e.g. that given in ISO 5725-2 [2]; - a mathematical method, e.g. that given in ISO/IEC Guide 98-3 [3]; - uncertainty and conformity assessment as given in ISO/IEC Guide 98-4 [4]; - JCGM 100:2008[1]. 4.2 Design 4.2.1 Height of upper All footwear shall be classified as either performance level 1 or performance level 2: Performance level 1:
