KORI in motorcycle magazines!

kori ryggskydd ryggsäck testas av MC-folket

kori ryggskydd ryggsäck i minitestPerfect timing for when the motorcycle fair in Gothenburg took place KORI came in to another two motorcycle magazines!

First, KORI was included in a big and comprehensive test of back protectors in the member magazine of the Swedish motorcycle organization, SMC, “Motorcycle People” # 2.12, where the final grade was taken down cause of the high price but the KORI and D3O protection did very well in impact test!

Kori was also featured in a mini-test in the magazine “All About MC” No.2, 2012, where, despite the fact that they missed that they also could use the upper part of the cover, managed to bring down the leather suite as well as the textile equipment, the conclusion was a cool-index almost in the top!

“KORI = The coolest news at the motorcycle fair” (we think, of course!)

Last autumn we ended 2011 in november by showing our KORI-D3O concept at the snow fair WinterShow 2011 in Stockholm.
Now we start 2012 by showing KORI-D3O at the big motorcycle fair Påtvå hjul 2012 in Gothenburg, 26-29 januari. And it feels great to be showing our back protector and backpack to the motorcyclists! We are right in the middle of all preparations needed before a fair. We are lucky we don’t have big and heavy motorcycles to transport… Our KORI-D3O only weighs about 1 kg =)
We’ll be standing together with BrödernaNilssons MC-Tillbehör from Helsingborg, experienced guys in the motorcycle business and used to this kind of big events. It’ll be fun to present the KORI-D3O together with them!
It’ll also be fun looking at all those gorgeous bikes!

Back protection with D3O

kori pack protector with d3o viper pro

KORI has been to the National Institute for Materials Testing in Borås numerous times to test different materials and material combinations during the development of our KORI back protector/backpack. During those visits we really experienced how difficult it is to achieve the higher standards of protection, Level 2. Also we have seen horrifying examples of protections that were CE certified but did NOT resist the tests.
Therefore KORI really welcomes the report on back protectors 2011 :16!
"Market control of back protectors", a report from the Swedish Consumer Agency, is interesting reading both for manufacturers and consumers. As our KORI-D3O back protector wasn’t on the market when the tests were done, KORI is not included in this report. The important facts, nevertheless, are summarized in the analysis and recommendations at the end of the report, “Our recommendation for consumers”:
“- Choose a Level-2 protection, that should be comfortable…
- Try it on before buying and make sure you get the right size. It should be size marked.
- Ask for the user information before buying, you should know how to replace it, store it, wash it …”
KORI are proud to include the D3O protector Viper PRO, so how would KORI-D3O have managed from that perspective that the Swedish Consumer Administration described?
- KORI-D3O is a Level-2 protection and is extremely comfortable and flexible
- KORI-D3O has a size labelling and instructions for how to measure in D3O’s “USER INFORMATION” accompanying the product, and of course also on KORI’s web site.
- KORI-D3O has user information (on Swedish and English!) for how to use, store, clean etc.
