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

Very necessary.
It wont be the first time someone brake his ribs becouse not using.
And if you have and accident,you are fucked,if you dont wear it

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.
