How can you make a claim about the FIM? You obviously know nothing about it. I can write pages of what our company had to go through to be the first synthetic, non leather, Kevlar One Piece race suit to pass the FIM requirements for World Championship Road Racing. The AMA in this country refused to use any of the FIM Testing to approve the our suit for use in the USA. Yet World Championship racers racing AMA/FIM Sanctioned events here in the USA could wear our suits. It took 4 years for the AMA to approve our Kevlar one and two piece race suits. They allowed some racers to use our gear. After many crashes, observing the protective qualities it was approved. WERRA would not use the FIM or the AMA approval for use. WERRA used the same method as AMA. They found the riders that crashed more than anyone else. After many crashes, WERRA responded that our suit held up better than leather. Above you imply about race organizations: "Thats a political statement, more than anything of value and doesn't tell us anything". My 3 paragraphs above tell more about the protective qualities of gear than pages of dribble you write here about CE and Cambridge etc... Do you feel your mistatements help anyone? What point are you trying to make?
