Introduction

This document has been developed in response to the demand throughout the world. The aim is to

ensure that bicycles manufactured in conformity with this document will be as safe as is practically

possible. The tests are designed to ensure the strength and durability of individual parts as well as of

the bicycle as a whole, demanding high quality throughout and consideration of safety aspects from the

design stage onwards.

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

components.
If the bicycle should be used on public roads, national regulations apply.

4 Test methods
4.1 Brake lever grip dimensions
4.1.1 Test method for the brake lever similar to type A or type B

Fit the gauge illustrated in Figure 1 over the handlebar grip or the handlebar (when the manufacturer

does not fit a grip) and the brake lever as shown in Figure 2 so that face A is in contact with the handlebar

or grip and the side of the brake lever. Ensure that face B spans an area of that part of the brake lever

which is intended for contact with the rider's fingers without the gauge causing any movement of the

brake lever towards the handlebar or grip. Measure the distance, a, the distance between the last part

of the lever intended for contact with the rider's fingers and the end of the lever. The measurement

should be conducted only on a fully assembled bicycle.

4.3 Brake-block and brake-pad assemblies — Security test

Conduct the test on a fully assembled bicycle with the brakes adjusted to a correct position with a rider

or equivalent mass on the saddle. The combined mass of the bicycle and rider (or equivalent mass) shall

be 100 kg.

Actuate each brake lever with a force of 180 N applied at the point specified in Figure 5 or a force

sufficient to bring the brake lever into contact with the handlebar grip, whichever is lesser. Maintain

this force while subjecting the bicycle to five forward and five rearward movements, each of which is

not less than 75 mm distance.

Then conduct the test described in 4.4 or 4.5 as appropriate, depending on the style of brake, and then

the test described in 4.6.
4.4 Hand-operated braking-system — Strength test

Conduct the test on a fully assembled bicycle. After it has been ensured that the braking system is

adjusted according to the recommendations in the manufacturer's instructions, apply a force to the

brake lever at the point specified in Figure 5. This force shall be 450 N, or such lesser force as is required

to bring

a) a brake lever into contact with the handlebar grip or the handlebar where the manufacturer does

not fit a grip,

b) a brake extension lever level with the surface of the handlebar or in contact with the handlebar,

and
c) a secondary brake lever to the end of its travel.

4.6 Braking performance
4.6.1 Test bicycle

Conduct the braking performance test on a fully assembled bicycle after the brakes have been

subjected to the strength test detailed in ISO 4210-2:2023, 4.6.6, and 4.6.7. Before testing the bicycle

by either method, inflate the tyres and adjust the brakes to the nominal reach position according to the

manufacturer's instructions. In the case of rim-brakes, adjust it to the maximum clearance specified by

the manufacturer.
4.6.2 Secondary brake levers

Where a bicycle is fitted with secondary brake levers attached to brake levers, bar-ends, or aerodynamic

extensions, separate tests shall be conducted for the operation of the secondary brake levers in addition

to tests with the normal levers.

4.6.3 Track test method
4.6.3.1 Test track

a) Use an indoor test track if possible. If an outdoor test track is used, pay special attention to ambient

conditions throughout the test. The ambient temperature while performing the test shall be

20 °C ±10 °C.

b) The gradient of the track shall not exceed 0,5 %. If the gradient is less than 0,2 % carry out all runs

in the same direction. If the gradient lies between 0,2 % and 0,5 %, carry out alternate runs in

opposite directions.

c) The surface shall be hard, of concrete or fine asphalt, and free from loose dirt or gravel. The

minimum coefficient of friction between the dry surface and the bicycle tyre shall be 0,75.

d) The track shall be essentially dry at the commencement of tests. When testing in accordance with

the requirements of 4.6.3.6, the track shall remain dry throughout the tests.
e) The wind speed on the track shall not exceed 3 m/s during the tests.
4.6.3.2 Instrumentation

The test bicycle or the test track shall be instrumented to include the following:

a) a calibrated speedometer or tachometer (accurate to within ±5 %) to indicate to the rider the

approximate speed at the commencement of braking;

b) a velocity-recording device (accurate to within ±2 %) to record the velocity at the commencement

of braking;

c) a distance recording system (accurate to within ±1 %) to record the braking distance;

The velocity-recording device and distance recording system should have the least possible resistance

to the road surface.

d) a water spray system, to provide wetting of the braking surface, consisting of a water reservoir

connected by tubing to a pair of nozzles at the front wheel and a pair of nozzles at the rear wheel.

A quick-acting on/off valve shall be included for control by the rider. Each nozzle shall provide a

flow of water at ambient temperature of not less than 4 ml/s. Details of the positions and directions

of nozzles for rim brakes, hub brakes, band brakes, disc brakes, and back-pedal brake are given in

Figures 7 to 13;

NOTE Figures 7 and 8 for rim brakes show side-pull callipers but the same arrangements apply to

centre-pull callipers and cantilever brakes.

e) a brake-actuation indicating system to record independently when each lever or pedal is actuated.

4.6.3.3 Mass of bicycle, rider, and instrumentation

The combined mass of the bicycle, the rider, and the instrumentation shall be 100 kg.

When wet condition braking tests are performed, the combined mass can decrease throughout the test

due to water consumption, but it shall not be less than 99 kg at the end of the valid test runs.

Where a manufacturer specifies that their bicycle can carry a mass such that the sum of that mass plus

the mass of the bicycle is in excess of 100 kg (60 kg for young adults) to some value M, apply M as total

mass.

Any extra mass shall be positioned above the rear wheel and in front of the rear axle.

ISO 4210-4:2023(E)
4.6.3.4 Force applied to the brake levers
a) Magnitude and position of force on brake levers

Apply a handgrip force not exceeding 180 N at the point as specified in Figure 5. Check before and

after each series of test runs to verify the lever force. In order to stabilize the lever operating force

during braking, the lever may be fitted with an attachment which limits its range of movement. Brakes

that produce high braking forces with small operating forces should have their brake characteristics

checked beforehand to ensure that they can be tested safely.

NOTE When the braking distance can only be measured at lower lever operating force, see Annex B for the

calculation of the braking distance at a maximum lever operating force (bottom up or 180 N).

b) Optional brake-force application device

It is permissible to use a test mechanism to operate the brake lever, and when such a device is used, it

shall meet the requirements of 4.6.3.4 item a) and shall additionally control the rate of application of

the brake lever force such that 63 % of the intended lever force is applied in not less than 0,2 s.

4.6.3.5 Running — in the braking surfaces

A running-in process shall be conducted on every brake before performance testing is carried out.

Apply the brakes for not less than 3 s to maintain steady deceleration while the bicycle is being ridden

at a speed of approximately 16 km/h. Repeat this operation 10 times.
4.6.3.6 Test method — Test runs under dry conditions

Pedal the test bicycle until the specified test velocity is attained (see ISO 4210-2:2023, Table 1).

Then stop pedalling and apply the brakes. The bicycle shall be brought to a smooth, safe stop [see

ISO 4210-2:2023, 4.6.8.2 item a)].
4.6.3.7 Test method — Test runs under wet conditions

The method shall be as given in 4.6.3.6, with the addition that wetting of the brake system(s) shall

commence not less than 25 m prior to the commencement of braking and shall continue until the bicycle

comes to rest. Excessive amounts of water can be swept from the test track surface between runs.

4.6.3.8 Number of valid test runs

a) If the gradient of the track is less than 0,2 %, the following runs shall be made:

1) five consecutive valid runs under dry conditions;
2) two acclimatization runs under wet conditions (results not recorded);
3) five consecutive valid runs under wet conditions.

b) If the gradient of the track lies between 0,2 % and 0,5 %, the following runs shall be made:

1) six consecutive valid runs under dry conditions with alternate runs in opposite directions;

2) two acclimatization runs under wet conditions (results not recorded);

3) six consecutive valid runs under wet conditions with alternate runs in opposite directions.

A rest period not exceeding 3 min can be taken between successive runs.

Introduction

This International Standard has been developed in response to the demand throughout the world. The

aim is to ensure that bicycles manufactured in compliance with this International Standard will be as safe

as is practically possible. The tests are designed to ensure the strength and durability of individual parts

as well as of the bicycle as a whole, demanding high quality throughout and consideration of safety

aspects from the design stage onwards.

The scope is limited to safety considerations, and has specifically avoided standardization of components.

If the bicycle is to be used on public roads, national regulations apply.

20 Fit the gauge illustrated in Figure 1 over the handlebar grip or the handlebar (when the manufacturer

21 does not fit a grip) and the brake lever as shown in Figure 2 so that face A is in contact with the handlebar

22 or grip and the side of the brake lever. Ensure that face B spans an area of that part of the brake lever

23 which is intended for contact with the rider's fingers without the gauge causing any movement of the

24 brake lever towards the handlebar or grip. Measure the distance, a, the distance between the last part of

25 the lever intended for contact with the rider's fingers and the end of the lever. The measurement should

26 be conducted only on a fully assembled bicycle.

97 b) The gradient of the track shall not exceed 0,5 %. If the gradient is less than 0,2 % carry out all runs

98 in the same direction. If the gradient lies between 0,2 % and 0,5 %, carry out alternate runs in

99 opposite directions.

100 c) The surface shall be hard, of concrete or fine asphalt, and free from loose dirt or gravel. The minimum

101 coefficient of friction between the dry surface and the bicycle tyre shall be 0,75.

102 d) The track shall be essentially dry at the commencement of tests. When testing to the requirements

103 of 4.6.3.6, the track shall remain dry throughout the tests.
104 e) The wind speed on the track shall not exceed 3 m/s during the tests.
105 4.6.3.2 Instrumentation

106 The test bicycle or the test track shall be instrumented to include the following:

107 a) a calibrated speedometer or tachometer (accurate to within ±5 %) to indicate to the rider the

108 approximate speed at the commencement of braking;

109 b) a velocity-recording device (accurate to within ±2 %) to record the velocity at the commencement of

110 braking;

111 c) a distance recording system (accurate to within ±1 %) to record the braking distance;

112 d) a water spray system, to provide wetting of the braking surface, consisting of a water reservoir

113 connected by tubing to a pair of nozzles at the front wheel and a pair of nozzles at the rear wheel. A

114 quick-acting on/off valve shall be included for control by the rider. Each nozzle shall provide a flow

115 of water at ambient temperature of not less than 4 ml/s. Details of the positions and directions of

116 nozzles for rim brakes, hub brakes, band brakes, disc brakes, and back-pedal brake are given in

117 Figures 7 to 13;

118 NOTE Figures 7 and 8 for rim brakes show side-pull callipers but the same arrangements apply to centre-pull

119 callipers and cantilever brakes.

120 e) a brake-actuation indicating system to record independently when each lever or pedal is actuated.

121 4.6.3.3 Mass of bicycle, rider, and instrumentation

122 The combined mass of the bicycle, the rider, and the instrumentation shall be 100 kg.

123 When wet condition braking tests are performed, the combined mass can decrease throughout the test

124 due to water consumption, but it shall not be less than 99 kg at the end of the valid test runs.

125 Where a manufacturer specifies that their bicycle can carry a mass such that the sum of that mass plus

126 the mass of the bicycle is in excess of 100 kg (60 kg for young adults) to some value M, apply M as total

127 weight.

128 Any extra weight shall be positioned above the rear wheel and in front of the rear axle.

129 4.6.3.4 Force applied to the brake levers
130 a) Magnitude and position of force on brake levers

131 Apply a handgrip force not exceeding 180 N at the point as specified in Figure 5. Check before and after

132 each series of test runs to verify the lever force.
133 b) Optional brake-force application device

134 It is permissible to use a test mechanism to operate the brake lever, and when such a device is used, it

135 shall meet the requirements of 4.6.3.4 item a) and shall additionally control the rate of application of the

136 brake lever force such that 63 % of the intended lever force is applied in not less than 0,2 s.

137 4.6.3.5 Running — in the braking surfaces

138 A running-in process shall be conducted on every brake before performance testing is carried out.

140 a speed of approximately 16 km/h. Repeat this operation 10 times.
141 4.6.3.6 Test method — Test runs under dry conditions

142 Pedal the test bicycle until the specified test velocity is attained (see ISO 4210-2, Table 2). Then stop

143 pedalling and apply the brakes. The bicycle shall be brought to a smooth, safe stop [see ISO 4210-2, 4.6.8.2

144 item a)].
145 4.6.3.7 Test method — Test runs under wet conditions

146 The method shall be as given in 4.6.3.6, with the addition that wetting of the brake system(s) shall

147 commence not less than 25 m prior to the commencement of braking and shall continue until the bicycle

148 comes to rest. Excessive amounts of water can be swept from the test track surface between runs.

149 4.6.3.8 Number of valid test runs

150 a) If the gradient of the track is less than 0,2 %, the following runs shall be made:

151 1) five consecutive valid runs under dry conditions;
152 2) two acclimatization runs under wet conditions (results not recorded);
153 3) five consecutive valid runs under wet conditions.

154 b) If the gradient of the track lies between 0,2 % and 0,5 %, the following runs shall be made:

155 1) six consecutive valid runs under dry conditions with alternate runs in opposite directions;

156 2) two acclimatization runs under wet conditions (results not recorded);
