Apology and Correction to Road Race Chest Protector Requirements

Back to News

Firstly, we apologise for the incorrect information we released yesterday around the levels of protection. We made a mistake, sorry for the confusion.

Level 1 is the lower; Level 2 is the highest.

Regarding the Rule and the amnesty:

  • The Rule applies – From January 1st 2018, a certified chest protector of composite material must be worn at all times.
  • The amnesty applies to the standard – as long as you are wearing a chest protector as described above, you will be allowed to race.

The amnesty will remain in place until the EU standard is confirmed and FIM requirements are updated. We don’t know when that’s likely to happen but we will ensure you receive adequate notice before the standard is reintroduced as part of the rule.

If you need to purchase a chest protector, look for prEN1621-3 Level 2.

If you still have questions, please email us on admin@mnz.co.nz
