PMJ – LAB TESTS
Our philosophy has always been the safety of motorcyclists, because we are motorcyclists too.
Our jeans were born to exceed the limits imposed by safety regulations and they have always done so.
Actually we are ahead of the competitors because our products have always been approved to the new European legislation, for sure.

PMJ -TEST APPROVED!
PMJ chose to submit the materials used in laboratory tests. In this way, we are able to provide reliable values and indicators of what is the real potential of our products. A certified laboratory outside of our company has carried out tests on our behalf, according to the methods and requirements of the European Motorcycle Personal Protective Equipment (DPI).
Il TWARON® used in our products has been subjected to the impact abrasion test according to European EN13595-2, achieving a value of 7.90 seconds of resistance, achieving the highest level of safety expected: level 2. Also during the tests for the determination of the impact resistance (EN13595-4) and the seam burst resistance (EN13595-3), the result is in line with level 2. To be defined as protective under the law (or a DPI), motorcycle clothing must be certified according to this standard. Without this certification the safety is not guaranteed.
