Motorcycle Clothing Assessment
The right gear can greatly reduce the likelihood of permanent injuries from a crash and shorten hospital recovery times. With the right gear, you will enjoy a more comfortable ride, with less distraction, fatigue and dehydration.


The Motorcycle Clothing Assessment Program is an independent, free resource supported by governments and private road safety organisations across Australia and New Zealand. MotoCAP tests gear using rigorous, scientific methods to provide ratings for motorcyclists to choose the right gear with the best protection and breathability for their ride.



The Consumer Rating and Assessment of Safety Helmets (CRASH) is run by a consortium of government agencies and insurance companies which share a common interest in improving motorcycle safety. CRASH provides helmet buyers with independent and consistent information on the levels of protection from injury in a crash provided by motorcycle helmets and the comfort level of the helmet.
