Thanks for passing this along Toby. It is very good to see that someone is doing product testing. Particularly on something as critical as safety systems. I see other test results, more random ones, in accident reports. I like doing things ahead of time as these folks have done. I ran a translation of the text and for once it isn't that bad. Also, I totally second the closing comment about the best safety involving avoiding the hazard in the first place.

Results TÃƒÅ“V-test of AuslÃƒÂ¶sesystemem for the Kitesurfen
The TÃƒÅ“V-test was organized by the firm Nautic Air (Uwe SchrÃƒÂ¶der). The triggering values are determined in collaboration with the TÃƒÅ“V Berlin for product security. The values of the load are indicated in Newton (N).
The values of the AuslÃƒÂ¶sung are indicated in kilogram (kg). 1 kg corresponds ca. 10 N.
A part of the tested products is introduced in detail in the magazine kite-boarding. de 4/2002 from page 88. In the next edition as well as in other magazines should in detail over the TÃƒÅ“V-test reported become. The original-test
results that of the Fa. Nautic Air to the decree placed became are here as an Excel-table downloadbar (same contents as well as here on the page represented).
Brand-new products were tested. For each load, four fair processes were carried out. Exact statements to the trial construct and -execution exist us unfortunately not.

The best security system is always yet the healthy common sense and the avoidance of dangerous situations!
Each security system is almost worthless if one not is concerned abundantly therewith and trains the utilization.
One likes to form himself a characteristic judgment over the test. For a discussion with other Kitesurfern becomes on the Kiteforen of oasis. com and kitesurfing-kiel. de verwiesen.
