THE NEW TENSA GLOVE RANGE
‘Over the last 25 years the business has developed to attract some of the most prestigious equestrian athletes across the world,’ said Lieselot Hamerlinck, managing partner at Cavalor. ‘As yet the UK market has remained untapped for us and so, with the support of Zebra Products, we are looking forward to growing our brand here, offering solutions to horse owners who really care.’
Simon Middleton, managing director of Zebra Products, the exclusive UK distributor for Cavalor, said: ‘Cavalor has been on our radar for a while, as we’ve seen its popularity and success in other countries. It’s great to have a world leading brand on board and it helps to broaden our own product portfolio further ensuring we have almost everything a horse owner / rider could need.’
All helmets that are sold in the European Union need to carry a CE marking.
ASTM Helmets need to carry a CE label too if they are to be sold legally in Europe, and to be worn by Association members, however the CE label can only be based on a European standard. Not on the American standard. This has led to some misinterpretation within the industry.
The CE mark at this juncture applies solely to the VG1 standard.
Therefore all helmets that ONLY carry the ASTM standard are illegal because they are not legally carrying a CE mark, which is required by law for items of PPE in the European Union.
Helmets that do not carry the CE mark are illegal in the EU and to offer such items for sale can lead to a heavy financial penalty for the retailer.
uvex will not release a product for sale that does not adhere to legislation and compromises their customers and the end consumer.
uvex VG1 helmets will be available shortly, and uvex would like to thank everyone for their patience and brand loyalty.
