Quality Control - KUBEAR HEATED JACKET TESTING

(1) Wind Tunnel:

The use of a wind tunnel allows us to test our KOMBEARĀ® ventilation system on our jackets to ensure maximum airflow is achieved as well as the permeability of our materials. 

(2) Rain Tester:
Used in conjunction with our wind tunnel we are able to simulate strong storm conditions to test the waterproof/water resistance performance of our technical outerwear.

(3) Hydrostatic Pressure Tester
We use a hydrostatic pressure tester (water penetration tester) that designed to test the endurance of our waterproof fabric as exposed to water. It is applicable to all types of fabrics, including those treated with a water resistant or water repellent finish. 

(4) Fabric Abrasion Tester:
Utilizing this equipment we are able to simulate the ASTM D 3886-1999 inflated diaphragm method, multi-directional abrasion, 1lb load pressure, 4psi air pressure, No. 0 emery polishing paper. The testing apparatus records the number of cycles/revolutions till the abrasive panel breaks through the fabric.

(5) CE Armor Impact Tester:
High performance armor is crucial to motorcycle protective wear, which is why we have our very own impact tester machine on-site that carries out CE level tests to check impact performance of our different types of armor.
