The Motorcycle Clothing Assessment Program (MotoCAP) has been established as an Australian/New Zealand program to provide motorcycle riders with an independent assessment of the relative performance of their garments for thermal comfort and protection. The protection rating is based on the garment’s abrasion resistance, impact protection and burst strength. The program will enable consumers to select clothing based on performance, which is expected to drive demand for better-performing garments and result in increased supply and use of such garments on the road, thereby reducing trauma to motorcyclists.
