Rib protectors/Seat inserts. Opinions?
« on: August 24, 2017, 06:04:19 PM »
Do they make a difference with or without and is the protection necessary?
I'm still a kid, and I ain't using that as an excuse
I just got a lot to learn and that's the truth

I recommend seat padding over rib protectors, even then, been in crashes without anything and it didn't reallly make a difference, just personal preference really.

I personally run a combo of both the rib protection to protect my sternum and front of my chest and the pads to make myself more comfortable.

I don't use anything, I have fat to protect me, even when I'm slim

I just crashed today and I was so grateful I had a seat insert.
