Declarations of Conformity for Hood K7 Jeans
Hood Jeans K7 Infinity jeans have been independently tested by SATRA Technology Centre in the UK and issued with EU type-examination certificates by SATRA Technology Centre in the UK (2018 K7 production) and SATRA Technology Europe, Dublin, Ireland (2019 K7 production).
Hood Jeans K7 Infinity jeans are approved to the following draft European Standards:
K7/AA conform to prEN 17092-3:2017 (February 2017) – Class AA garments. The second highest level of protection specified in the standard, against the risks of the greatest diversity of riding activities. Some common examples are: garments designed to be worn by themselves or to be worn over other clothing. These garments are expected to have lower ergonomic and weight penalties than Class AAA garments and some riders will not find these penalties acceptable for their specific riding activities.
K7/A conform to prEN 17092-4:2017 (February 2017) – Class A garments. The third highest level of protection specified in the standard. Some common examples are: garments, designed to be worn by themselves or to be worn over other clothing by riders in extremely hot environments. Class A garments are expected to have the least ergonomic and weight penalties.
K7/B conform to prEN 17092-5:2017 (February 2017) – Class B garments. This class is for specialised garments, designed to provide the equivalent abrasion protection of Class A garments, but without the inclusion of impact protectors. Some common examples are: modular garments suitable to be combined with other garments providing impact protection. Class B garments do not offer impact protection and it is recommended that they be worn with at least EN 1621-1 knee impact protectors installed in the jeans to offer complete minimum protection.
