I don't know, time will only tell. I hope they do, it only makes sense - you cannot ride without an ASTM helmet, so why not these vests, which are obviously, just as important out on that xc course as your helmet.
I don't mind those using the certified inflatable vest overtop their Tip or Tip knock off - but alone....I'm just tired of hearing and seeing riders getting carried off the xc course with fractured/broken ribs while wearing them.
