SAFETY

QUESTIONS

The European Union conducts tests and certifications for Personal Protective Equipment. When you see the CE safety marking on the tag of your apparel this means that it has been tested to meet the specified standard. We test and certify our apparel to meet various CE safety standards. Apparel will not protect you from any foreseeable accident however studies show that wearing apparel significantly decreases your risk of injury and/or death.

The European Union sets the precedent for worldwide safety standards for all personal protective equipment. All products that meet CE certification pass stringent testing and precise measurements.

AGV Sports Group has long been developing high quality protective equipment, however, we cannot guarantee that your protective gear will still offer full protection after a crash, big or small. We advise our customers to call our offices for possible repairs to any damaged equipment, as soon as possible, to protect from any future injury that may result from loosened stitching or torn leathers.

Always remember to put on and fasten your gear correctly. Everything should be zipped up, Velcro closures should be fastened, and snaps should be fastened. You gear should be put on and adjusted while the vehicle is not moving.
Periodically check the condition of your gear and its components that are subject to wear (screws, mechanisms, snaps, zippers, stitching leather, etc.), particularly the following:
– The surface of the leather, to make sure that there are no cracks;
– The stitching, to make sure that it is in good condition and is secure;
– The lining and snaps/zippers of your gear, to make sure that they are in good condition;
– The protective armor inserts and the armor pockets, make sure they are positioned and secured correctly;
– Exterior integrated protective molds should be inspected for wear and tear.
Be prepared for sudden changes in the weather conditions that may occur while you are driving and which may influence the performance of or damage your gear (i.e. rain, snow, extreme cold conditions, heat conditions.). We recommend that you use an AGVSPORT Rain Suit to protect your leathers. Ventilated or insulated apparel may be better suited for various weather conditions.

APPAREL CARE

AND

ALTERATIONS

If you don’t have a leather cleaning kit, you can use a sponge or soft cloth with warm water and a neutral soap as a detergent. Leave it to completely dry well away from any major heat source. The lining should be washed separately using warm water (max 35�) and neutral soap.
Do not rub down the garment with a brush or abrasive materials or creams.
Dry the garment away from heat sources and in a well-ventilated place, it is best to use a clothes hanger to prevent the garment from creasing or taking on shapes that are difficult to eliminate.
Any oil or grease should be washed immediately with a soft damp cloth, clean with gentle circular movements, avoiding to unduly rubbing the soiled area.

Here are some leather cleaner brands that might suit you:
Lexol(R)
KIWI(R) Saddle Soap
LEATHER Honey™
Chemical Guys Leather Care

It is essential that you follow instructions on the garment label.

Your apparel must always be handled and treated carefully so that its safety features remain intact. Use a soft cloth with neutral soap and warm water to wipe the outside of your leathers. Rinse it by wiping it with a soft, wet cloth. You may also want to use a leather conditioner to prevent cracks and help retain the strength of the leather. Removable liners can be washed by hand or in the washing machine using warm water (max 35) and neutral soap. Always air dry the liner without exposing it to sources of heat. Make sure that the liner is completely dry before you insert it back in your jacket to prevent mold and unpleasant odors.
Do not use gasoline, benzene or other chemical products and solvents because they may jeopardize the function and look of some of the parts and weaken the protective features.
We strongly advise against painting your leathers for the same reason, because paint solvents may damage the leather. Never modify your leathers without the help of an alteration or custom suit specialist.
Always use original AGVSPORT replacement parts if you need to replace a part. Contact an AGVSPORT dealer if you are not sure how to perform an operation.

Wash in cold water, normal cycle. Dry on regular heat with other clothes, but take them out of the dryer while damp and hang to fully dry.

Alterations resulting from faulty manufacturing may be performed, granted that your product is under warranty and is deemed a manufacturer defect. Other alterations may be best handled by a local establishment specializing in your issue, however, AGV Sports Group will strive to assist you in the repairs and provide possible advice on how to get the results you are looking for.

In this situation the customer may have to take their standard apparel to a local custom tailor to attain the fit they desire. Please consult our sizing charts so you may get the best fit on your apparel before you buy.
